Update: Rewinery has closed. 🙁
So, I have a food blog. Hi, yes, this is it. Because of this, I sometimes get free stuff. Or get invited to food events. It’s kinda awesome. And while I never promise to write about any of these things, I will write about them if I particularly like them. And sometimes, you get a coupon for stuff too (see below).
Rewinery is a wine delivery service in SF. They have one wine on special at any point (they seem to rotate about every week or two) and you order two bottles (typically) for $30. It is then delivered to your door by bike messenger within the hour. Or, you can specify an hour in the future (not the past, sorry) for it to be delivered if you want to order for later.
It’s awesome. Their site is simple and easy to use. The wine is good (says the person who knows nothing about wine) such that $30 is a steal for two bottles (or so they tell me, at least). And they have specials sometimes: TCHO chocolate with your wine; Cowgirl Creamery cheese and Acme bread with your wine; all the fixins to make a pasta dinner with your wine. You get the idea. Also, sometimes, they have “happy hour” where they sell a bottle of wine for $5 for one hour (limited quantities, and you have to be on top of it to catch the deal).
Basically, I think it’s a great service and that they’ve executed it very well. I highly recommend it and they’ve given me a coupon to share with you so you can try it. Hence, fair San Francisco dweller, no need to put your outside-jacket on (Summer in SF — yeay!), Rewinery will come to you for $15 cheaper than they will everyone else. Type in the code brocandchoc at checkout to get $15 off your wine order at rewinery.com.
Side note: Also, apparently you’re supposed to tip your courier… a fact I was unaware of. Sorry, courier man, I live on a massive hill and I didn’t even give your sweaty ass a couple bucks for coming to me. Bad form. Please accept my apologies.
