Speed the Pour
Wakozi brings wine to your door in minutes
In a city where you can have everything from DVDs to just-baked cookies dispatched to your doorstop at a moment's notice, the snail-like speed of most wine shops' delivery service is downright odd: Wines often arrive hours--or days--after you order them. But web portal Wakozi can put bottles on your table lickety-split, just in time for your Thai or pizza delivery.
Like a Seamless Web for booze, Wakozi connects you to wine shops, liquor stores and bodegas (for beer) in your neighborhood. Enter your address and you can search local shops by estimated delivery time and fee (if any), then browse their selection for the perfect bottle.
Next time you want to indulge your inner procrastinator or spontaneous party planner, your wine will be only a few clicks--and minutes--away.
Wakozi now serves Manhattan; Brooklyn and Queens delivery is in the works.
