    Naked-Wines

    2. Naked Wines

    Naked Wines is based on an innovative company structure that reconnects consumers and producers, supports small business, and brings high quality boutique wines to buyers at wholesale prices.

In return for the support, winemakers are able to concentrate on production, reduce unnecessary costs, and pass on their savings to the consumer. The model eliminates the need for winemakers to hurry-up production and maximise profit margins in order to compete in the market. The result? Winemakers get to do what they love and concentrate on producing good wine, and wine drinkers get a better drop at a lower cost.

      Hi, I’m ready to open a Chinese restaurant in Melbourne. I’m looking for a wine supplier which could help me with the wine list. Cause I’m not really familiar with the wine brand, can you advise me which wine supplier could help their customers make a wine list?

        Hi there,

        If you’re looking for online help, Dan Murphy’s offers a “Liquor Library”, including a guide to wine, which may help you choose what to serve at your restaurant. It includes some tips on matching different foods and wines too.

        Otherwise, most wine suppliers who sell by the case (like Cellarmasters, WineMarket and WineSelectors) offer a customer service line where you should be able to speak to someone about your specific needs.

        Hope that helps.

      We have just purchased a pub/bar, and looking to find where we can purchase stock at reasonable prices. The current listening suppliers we have, are priced at similar prices to dan murphys and first choice retail outlets ?? Can you advise where I can buy direct, in quantities, at wholesale prices? Thanks

        Hi George.

        Thanks for getting in touch.

        While the outlets listed on this site sell straight to the consumer, there are occasions where buying in bulk from stores like Dan Murphy’s end up a bit cheaper than wholesale prices. Check out sites like Dan Murphy’s and First Choice’s coupon codes, which may end up working in your favour.

        Hope that helps,
        Alex
