I have said this in the past. Life is good in Australia when buying Grays online wine is way easier than you think.

Why is buying Grays Online wine easy

When you are in the comfort of your own lunge room, and browsing online for the next wine you want to buy. Seriously what’s better than that?

Most wine connoisseurs think of wineries or bottle shop outlets to get their wine fix.  They rarely think about turning to online auction sites to make a wine purchase…

Grays Australia ( has a reputation mainly as an equipment auction website.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  They often run wine auctions and immediate buy-now options for an amazing range of wines.

Buying directly from Grays

I have a close wine mate, who will buy a couple of cartons of wine per month from Grays online.  I had always thought that all they every sold were cleanskins or $5 per bottle lucky dips.  Until I was at a dinner party at his place one day, I realized nothing could be further from the truth. 

Gray’s has an amazing selection of wines, from some of the most popular wineries and wine regions around Australia.  Including Margaret River,  McLaren Vale, Barossa, and plenty of different wine varieties as well.  Such as Cabernet Sauvignon, chardonnay, Pinot Noir Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz/ Syrah.

What’s pricing buying online like

Generally, pricing will start from an average of $9 per case up to hundreds per case, so it really comes down to smart buying at an online wine auction.

Its a very simple matter to open Gray’s online account.   Then start to search for what wine deals they might have on the go at any given time. Once you purchase and pay the associated fees all you need to do is wait for delivery. 

Just a tip here, make sure that when you make a purchase make sure you have factored in any auction fees.   There is nothing worse than thinking you’ve bought a bargain, to find out you are paying store prices.

I’ve purchased a few cases myself, and always had them delivered promptly. Due to the size of the case and the fragile nature of the bottles.  You might find that the delivery driver will leave a please pick up card if you aren’t home. 

Buying Grays online wine

In Australia, Grays Online has rapidly grown into a leader in the buying wine online niche.  They really seem to fill it well, with several different name brands as well, often on sale, like Penfolds, or Peter Lehman.

I recently met someone who gave me a 20-minute lecture on how to hold a wine glass.  So I am the last person in the world who tells anyone to do anything other than enjoy what they drink. whether that is a $5 cleanskin or a $600 Penfolds.

Buying wone online through an auction website is very much the same.  Buy what you like, if you get a bad bottle you can always cook with it, or just give it away to friends. But there are some amazing bargains to be found online.

Check it out, you might find a bargain.
