When you’re stuck in the house of an evening, what better way to treat yourself than a nice glass of wine and maybe a couple of indulgent snacks to go along with it? Manchester has a wealth of excellent wine shops, and we’ve rounded up five of the best who offer a delivery service. So get a couple of cases in and treat yourself to a bit of wine tasting, or just a glass (or two) with dinner…

Go natural with It's Alive

All the wines, craft beers and ferments at It’s Alive have one thing in common — yep, you’ve guessed it, they’re alive. What this means is that the wines they sell all have the lowest possible human or chemical intervention, and they’ve got a pretty impressive selection to satisfy all tastes. If you’re based in Greater Manchester and you order by 3pm (Monday – Saturday), they deliver on the same day, so you can have a bottle in your hands for dinner that very night.

Taste the grassroots with Isca

Isca focus on the cycle of ingredients, celebrating the process that brings your wine from a seed to the drink you eventually enjoy. Named after the shop’s founders, Isabel and Caroline, Isca have a great selection of wine, cheese and other indulgent treats on offer, delivering for free if you live in M19. They also deliver to M1, M4, M12-21 and SK4-6 for a small charge, so have a browse and see what you fancy.

Indulge with Reserve Wines

Reserve aim to make wine accessible and fun for everyone, while only stocking the very best boutique wines from all over the world. They taste every bottle they sell, and have something for every budget. If you spend over £30, they deliver for free in Greater Manchester, so it’s well worth stocking up on a few of their finest bottles.

Get bespoke with Salut Wines

Salut Wines offer some pretty unique packages, all tailored to the perfect night in — from date night to box-set bingeing, they’ve curated the perfect wines for every occasion. You can build your own case, too, if you want to pick out all your favourites. They deliver all over the UK, so even if you’re away from Manchester, you can enjoy their excellent wines.

Get a taste of Spain with Evuna

Evuna are passionate about Spanish wines — in normal times, after all, they’re a Spanish restaurant and tapas bar as well as a wine importer. All of their wines are hand-selected by founder Jane, and they’re all vegan and made with organic methods. All deliveries are made within 48 hours of ordering, so you won’t have long to wait for your premium pours.
