Handpicked Wines is a young, award-winning Australian wine company that has brought a world of wine together under one label. Comprising vineyards across Australia and beyond, each region and grape variety has been ‘handpicked’ by the company’s wine makers to create a portfolio of wines that best represent the terroir of each region.
Twice named a 5 Star Winery in the prestigious James Halliday Wine Companion and a Double Gold Medal Winner at the San Francisco International Wine Competition in 2016, Handpicked Wines has cemented itself as premium, yet accessible wine brand. Located in the Central Park precinct in Chippendale, Handpicked Wines Cellar Door is the culmination of an 18-month journey to create a sensory and educational space for Sydneysiders to enjoy a curated cellar door experience in the heart of the city.
“Inventory management and wastage can become quite complex when you talk about a tasting versus wine by the glass versus wine by the bottle, but Revel’s recipe function allows us to manage this with great precision. The level of detail that can be achieved through these costings places our understanding of profitability at the highest level.”
“Revel’s reporting allows us to look at all the components of the business: the ingredients, the hourly rates, the staff sales rates at any time. It’s a very comprehensive reporting network, and it’s easy to use which is what we love about it.”
Handpicked Cellar Door is fast becoming a go-to destination for locals and tourists alike. The business has ambitions to expand its footprint by opening more locations across the country and Revel is ready to help them scale when they do.
Revel’s speed allows our staff to engage on a more personal basis with our customers and not worry about the transaction. The roaming iPads have also helped us with upselling as they allow us to seamlessly take customers from the dining experience through to our retail offering, therefore facilitating a combined saleMichael O'Brien, Retail Director, Handpicked Wines
“One of the benefits I see going forward with Revel is our expansion plans. As we grow our retail footprint, we know Revel will allow us scalability across all formats. I cannot recommend Revel more highly, and am thrilled to have them as our POS partner in this journey.”
