SOUTHAMPTON’S branch of Majestic Wine is partnering with Deliveroo to offer 30-minute deliveries.

Food delivery platform Deliveroo has linked with 80 Majestic sites across the country to offer wine, spirits and champagnes.

The deliverer has taken a hit from the coronavirus lockdown, with restaurants closing their doors.

Majestic said prices on Deliveroo would be the same as in its stores.

With the weather improving, bosses predict that rose and Portuguese reds will be the home-delivery drinks of choice for Deliveroo customers.

Robert Cooke, Majestic's chief commercial officer, said: "Wine is something which continues to provide joy and discovery within your own walls, even in the face of Covid-19. We are always looking for new ways to help our customers keep making those discoveries whilst in lockdown and beyond, as safely and interactively as possible."

It comes after Deliveroo announced plans to deliver Aldi groceries to homes in the UK for the first time, and launched services with Morrisons, Co-op and Marks & Spencer.
