Imported & Australian Timber Wine Box Sale.
A very rare opportunity to enhance your cellar.
Due to renovations Nicks Wine Merchants in Doncaster are releasing several hundred timber wine boxes.
This offer is a semi-reluctant sale. Many of the timber boxes have served to display the wines in our stores for over twenty years and so have something of a nostalgic connection with the history of Nicks as a pioneering importer of Europe's finest.
Some of the European examples (predominately Bordeaux) date back to the early eighties and are considered collectables for their beautiful imprints and decorative facings. Their graphic origins lie in the 19th century or early 20th centuries. They express reliability, confidence and frequently, a kind of 'old money' aristocratic sophistication with which the wines they once held have become synonymous. Common characteristics include sparse but elegant designs, with a single tone and occasionally a limited colour scheme and a subtle use of gold foiling. Formal script and a coat of arms and an 'etched' image of the vineyard site are also typical. Their market position tends towards the premium to super premium bracket. To secure these boxes nowadays you would normally need to purchase the wine that they hold - a consideration that only the super wealthy could entertain.
Also available are a range of smaller (6 bottle) boxes of appeal to Australian wine enthusiasts. These include Penfolds, Torbreck, Elderton and other high end producers from around the country. Sometimes these boxes come with lids.
The boxes are available for PICK UP ONLY from our Doncaster store. Prices start at $20/box.
Discounts for quantity purchases can be negotiated.
Get in early to ensure you can choose from the widest selection possible.
In many instances, once they're gone, they're gone for good.
