The Wine Feed, a new Raleigh-based Internet wine retailer, is offering free delivery of bottles of wine within a 2-mile radius of their Glenwood South office.
The bike delivery service is offered from 2-4 p.m. and 6-7:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 3-5 p.m. Saturday. If you need a delivery outside the two-mile radius, they also offer in-town car delivery with the purchase of six bottles or more. Orders must be placed at least 30 minutes prior to the delivery timeframe.
Purchases also can be picked up at The Wine Feed's office in the Carter Building, 18-B Glenwood Ave. Raleigh.
The Wine Feed's owners are Phillip Zucchino, 27, and Phillip Rubin, 26, who went to Enloe High School and later attended Appalachian State University. Zucchino says they have been open for six weeks and plan to offer education classes, wine tastings and bike delivery to bridge the gap between an online store and a brick-and-mortar store.
"We want to put a face on an online experience," Zucchino says.
Zucchino describes their selection of wines as a revolving inventory of no more than 30 wines, all under $30, which are quality examples of each style of wine. He notes that these wines aren't for aging but for enjoying right now.
