With Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21st fast approaching and a visit not necessary on the cards, I was pleased to be introduced to Sparkling Direct Next-Day Gift Delivery. A privately-owned online drinks retailer, who have been trading since 2002. They offer a range of high-quality, well presented special occasion gifts including Champagne, wine, prosecco, gin, whisky, vodka and spirits presented in their own unique wooden gift box.
Every order is hand-picked and packed in their warehouse by a great, conscientious team who pack each gift as if it was being delivered to a member of their own family, I felt this when I opened my beautifully packed Prosecco Box which included a personalised card message inside, which was an uplifting touch.
The bottle of Prosecco Spumante is from the Casa Defra family vineyards in Italy. It is a dry sparkling wine and when served chilled, it is refreshing light with aromatic apple and pear flavours on the nose. This is followed by the flavour of succulent fruits on the palate, quite a taste sensation. This pairs perfectly with light dishes, as an aperitif, alternatively as a pleasant drink for any time of day.
As we have so many reasons to say ‘Thank You’ these days, the opportunity for a home delivery service certainly takes the leg work out of the task at hand, particularly when your shopping can be done from the comfort of your own home.
The selection of Champagne and sparkling wine from Sparkling Direct, is vast including Ayala, Bollinger, Dom Perignon, Krug, Laurent Perrier and the wine selection was pretty comprehensive too. This included a range of red and white wines from around the world, ranging from English wines to New Zealand wines, with a great variety of grape types to suit all palates.
If you so desire you can also add to your chosen bottle flowers, chocolates or even a balloon.
Another reassuring note: If you can’t find something you are wanting from the selection of over 1600 gifts they stock online, then do let them know and they will try to source it for you.
Having tried the service, I was so impressed with the speed of delivery (next day) and the gift presentation Sparkling Direct will ultimately be taking care of my Father’s Day gift requirements as well as other events on the horizon.
