There are texts you don’t want to get (you were way too good for him anyway) and texts you do, like one with a well-chosen summer wine that you can order in less than 10 seconds.
The new Vancouver-based WineText service is the first of its kind in Canada, and was developed by the city’s most well-established private wine store, Marquis Wine Cellars. Your wine might arrive by Canada Post or even on an e-bike with a temperature controlled box on the back. After registering on their secure site, the offers will roll our weekly, and all you have to do is text back with the number of bottles you would like.
Now who’s in charge? —Sarah Bancroft
