About BottlesXO

Chilled. Delivered. Now.

Our Story

BottlesXO started in 2015 by three tech-driven, wine-loving revolutionaries. Since, we’ve made hundreds of people happy, not just because it’s alcohol but because we’re experts in our craft that offer our wine lovers a community of like-minded individuals that enjoy a good drink just as much as we do.

The slow hand-crafted process of wine and the speed of high tech always seem to exclude each other. I’ve finally found a way to combine two of my greatest passions.

Our Selection

Our platform offers a range of outstanding wines, craft beers and artisanal spirits that are sold at a reasonable price. Plus, our wine is protected by anti-counterfeit AI — you get only the real deal.

Our bottles are carefully selected, delightful, and never mass-produced. We make your choice effortless & efficient. But most importantly: We only sell wine we love ourselves.

Our Producers

 [Pre-Covid19 times] We personally travel through Europe and the world to meet producers from independent and unique vineyards, breweries and distilleries — we then choose their finest bottles with only 1 out of tens of thousands getting on our App. All are passionate in their craft, mindful of their environment and have an admirable story to tell.

Our Community

Meet other wine lovers like you! Sample and learn about our selection at our regular wine tasting events. Can’t make it? Catch the team at pop-up events in the city: markets, networking conferences, business parties, and so on.
