Our Black Friday wine is on offer during the Black Friday sales period. While this tradition may have had its start in the United States, it has since spread to many other countries as the perfect precursor to the Christmas and end of year trading period. It can be a great time for people to take advantage of sales and get ready for the end of year celebrations with your family. As we all know, Christmas can be a stressful time of year and often this is increased due to the pressures involved with getting everything ready for your family to come over as you throw a huge celebration. By getting in early and taking up many of the Black Friday wine offers from The Wine Collective, you can secure your drinks and save some money in the process! As wine generally stores quite well, it can be something that you get early and keep aside for that special event; you can even save enough money that you may like to try a bottle or two before the big day.
The origins of Black Friday as a sales event are quite interesting. Today we know it as one of the best days of the year for specials and getting a good bargain. But it wasn’t always that way, it actually started as a term used for how busy the day was, and that police officers were dealing with masses of tourists and unruly shoppers. It was also used in some workplaces, as many people refused to show up for work, as they intended on taking advantage of what has already been established as an excellent shopping day. In most cases a day being deemed as ‘black’ meant that something untoward was happening. You have workers not showing up for work, and police dealing with inordinate amounts of complaints and difficult people, so for them the days were seen as unusually hard and problematic. Since the 1980s the origins of Black Friday have been altered to reflect a more positive outlook, instead now they call it as a reason that businesses are getting ‘back in the black’. It is assumed that businesses largely operate in a loss until this point in time, when the influx of sales will put their sales into a positive, or ‘in the black’. Whatever the origins, we all know that Black Friday sales mean that we are getting a great deal on almost anything we want to purchase, and often people can spend all year waiting for this ideal opportunity. Black Friday is usually followed by Cyber Monday that encourages people to buy from online retailers, so when you’re shopping at The Wine Collective you’re getting the best of both worlds.
The Black Friday wine you’ll find on sale at The Wine Collective includes many well-known brands. We have curated a special set of wines that will help you celebrate at any time of the year. If you’re into Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, or sparkling white wine, you’ll find the best of these on sale in our online shop. You can choose a few bottles or enough to help you with that big end of year party celebrations. Storing wine is reasonably easy for most households as it will keep well when placed in a cool and dark position of your home; usually that back of the kitchen pantry is enough. All wine should be chilled before serving, so having everything organised before you’re planning on drinking it will give you the right amount of time to get the wines to the right serving temperatures. Our Black Friday wine is a high quality mix of wines from different regions and an assortment of wineries located all over Australia, with the occasional international brand thrown into the mix. We have included wines that should be suitable for most palates, from the novice wine drinker, to an experienced wine aficionado. If you have a family member that likes a good drop of wine, you’re sure to find something in our Black Friday wine collection that will keep them happy and content.
If you’re looking through our Black Friday wine on offer and are not too sure what to get, you can go for a good mix of white and red wines, or decide based on what you’re planning to serve it with. It used to be said that white wines go with white meat, and red wines go with dark meat, but this is not always the case. Generally, the lighter the colour of the wine the more subtle the flavour, so a dark red will pair very well with rich flavoured foods (roasted meats, etc.), and white wines will go well with more delicate flavours (shellfish, etc.). However, if you're not sure about what you’re going to serve, getting a few red and white wines will usually have you covered for all eventualities.
As you can Afterpay alcohol, it can be a great option to use this if you want to get a few extra bottles during these special sales. You can also look through our Fathers Day wine, or Mothers Day wine if you need some inspiration for what people may like. As we operate in most locations all over Australia, we can ship your wine choices to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, and Perth, and many other addresses within those states. Whatever event you’re planning on having it’s during Black Friday that you’ll get the best deals possible, so why not take full advantage of this discounting period and order a few cases of your favourite wines!
