Providing wine "for the people" at discounted prices.
Standing apart from the more traditional wine sellers, online wine retailer Vinomofo started with the realisation that the founders were "big wine geeks, but poor" The founders, known as The Qwoff Boys, started the website so members could benefit from deals on a small selection of hand-picked wines.

Vinomofo shipping information
There’s a flat rate of $9 shipping charge, however, if you purchase 3 or more cases at one time shipping is free. They also have special free shipping events on site regularly.
Vinomofo deliver with Nexday, and it usually takes 3-5 working days for East Coast capitals, 5-10 working days for other metropolitan and regional areas. Delivery may exceed 10 or so days to some country areas. A more accurate timeframe is provided on checkout which is based on your postcode.
Vinomofo always try to get your wine on the way ASAP. If a case has been delayed slightly in the warehouse, they will send it separately.
Adding delivery instructions to your order is the best way to have a successful delivery. For example, if you’re not home, the driver can leave it somewhere safe on the property. Otherwise, perhaps your work address may be more suitable.
If there are no appropriate delivery instructions that could work, you may be able to use Parcel Point. They use local stores to accept your wine so you can collect at a time that suits you! Check out their site for more details: www.parcelpoint.com.au.
Vinomofo does not offer international delivery, but they will offer this service in the future.
Vinomofo refunds, exchanges and returns
Vinomofo offer a 100% Mofo Happiness Guarantee, so if you are unhappy with the wine you have ordered, you can return it. If you’d like to return your wine you can get in contact with Vinomofo and they will arrange to have the wine collected. Then, they can send you a replacement, credit your account, or give you a full refund for your purchase. You’re able to try up to two bottles of the case to be able to return it.
