Vineagogo: Home delivery vino

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Josh Orr is getting ready to head out on his route in his customized van named Merlot.

"It's a 60s Divco milk truck, so there's no power steering. There's no antilock brakes, but it does have a new engine in it. So it runs fairly efficiently, but it is like driving a tank a little," Josh said.

Josh is the designated driver and master sommelier candidate for Vineagogo, a San Diego-based company that can bring a variety of wine experiences right into your home.

"We will be opening a wine lounge in downtown on Market and Union, but we also have the in-home aspect of our company with our milk truck, where we bring wine to your door," he said. "We also do in-home tasting events, kind of like bring the tasting rooms of Napa to your home."

Vineagogo offers a wide variety of wines from around the world.

"It's a lot of fun for me selecting, because I get the whole world to play with," Josh said.

And when Josh is on the go, everybody wants to know about merlot.

"It's a 1964 milk truck. It was actually found in San Diego. So it did deliver milk here in the 60s," he said. "It was restored in Vegas over six months and as you can see they did a phenomenal job."

Even though his mind may be on wine, this delivery man keeps his eyes on the road.

"It's a show on wheels. It's a circus when you're driving it. You have to be really careful," he said.

The question from the folks at Vineagogo keep asking is, "Got wine?"

"Milk delivery, wine delivery -- wine's the new milk," Josh said.

Because as the slogan goes, wine does a body good.
