5 Things To Do With Unwanted Wines

Bad wines. You’ve bought them, you’ve received them and you’ve even re-gifted them to a clueless friend who’s just thankful you gave them a belated birthday gift…

Whether you’re a seasoned wine connoisseur, a social drinker, a beginner or just ‘that person’ who always gets them as a gift, when you drink a wine that makes your face screw-up so horribly that your mum warns you that the wind will change, you’ll be asking yourself, “what the f*** do I do with this wine?”

57% cook with it.


Tsk tsk. Remember the saying, “If it’s not good enough to drink, then it’s not good enough to cook with.”

37% chuck it.


While you’re there, recycle that bottle and water those neglected plants on your balcony! Now I bet you remember why you should only buy from Vinomofo…

30% drink it anyway.


As the French say, “c’est la vie!” You win some, you lose some. Just drink the damn wine! My frugal mother would be proud...

11% send it back.


Don’t like it? Let someone know! Power to the people.  

9% keep it and serve to guests they don’t like!



Wow, apparently revenge is a crap wine best served to someone else! Remind us not to get on your bad side…

There is absolutely no reason to be afraid of wine, and it’s not a question of whether it’s technically well-made, corked or slightly “bretty” (“can I send that back or is it too borderline?”)... at the end of the day, are you unhappy with your wine? If you bought it from us, just let us know and we’ll fix it for you (after all, you are covered by our *100% Mofo Happiness Guarantee). Because there should be no such thing as an unhappy Mofo. And if you bought it from someone else… well, there’s a lesson here somewhere, I’m sure of it.

*If you’re unhappy with your Vinomofo wine in any way, we’ll sort out a pickup and replace/credit/refund as you so wish. We call that our 100% Mofo Happiness Guarantee, because, well, that’s what it is!
