A London entrepreneur has solved the problem of missed wine bottle deliveries.

After winning £20,000 in prize money on CNBC's Pop Up Start Up TV show, Joe Revell said he is launching his subscription-based Garcon Wines in the UK.

The Graze-like business model is enhanced by a "revolutionary" bottle design which the company says will allow easier deliveries.

"No more missed deliveries, no more depot-collection cards, no more waiting around for couriers and no more heading out to the supermarket late at night next time you feel like wine!" Revell said.
