I had the opportunity to test Luxury Grapes’ website, and I received 4 of their wines to try. Thank you very much for this wonderful opportunity.
Luxury Grapes was founded by two young entrepreneurs with a passion for wine and gastronomy. They have a beautiful website with an amazing selection that truly brings innovation to the wine world. They have a fresh perspective on wine, where enjoyment and food pairing are very important. Luxury Grapes makes luxury wines accessible to everyone, including young people. As they say themselves: wine is fun, wine is delicious, and doesn’t have to be pretentious. In addition to their perfect website, with detailed tasting notes and advice on dishes that pair well with the wine, they are also always ready to provide personal advice. In my opinion, this is a beautiful and unique concept.
What makes their website so unique?
Firstly, the website is incredibly user-friendly as soon as you visit it. You are immediately greeted with an easy-to-navigate menu, categorized sections, and a wide selection of wines on display. The website operates at an impressive speed, providing a seamless browsing experience.
Each category is accompanied by a helpful description, offering valuable information for those who are less familiar with white wine, port, sparkling wine, and more. Every wine listing includes a comprehensive description, details about the winery, origin information, wine-food pairings, ratings from platforms such as Vivino or James Suckling, customer reviews, and shipping information. The website also offers convenient filtering and selection options, adding to its uniqueness. Overall, everything is in excellent condition.
Unique Shipping Experience
After ordering the wines, you will receive a confirmation email with all the details of your order in an accessible and personal manner, including the expected delivery day. Then, you will receive a packaging and delivery email, where you can even reschedule the delivery if you know you will not be at home. It worked seamlessly. You can truly feel that they have put in a lot of effort and didn’t just leave everything to standard text, but instead, created a complete luxury experience.
Which wines have I tasted?
I have tasted four wines, each offering a nice diversity. These include a white wine from Burgundy, an Orange Wine from Georgia, a Spanish red wine made from 100% Carignan, and an Italian red wine made from Primitivo from Puglia. Below, you will find my personal tasting notes and links to the wines on the Luxury Grapes website.
