The company said today that Laithwaite's would provide a selection of red, white, rose and sparkling wines as well as mixed cases. eBay started selling wine in the UK in June though its regular listings format. The Laithwaite's offer is part of eBay's Shops initiative and the home-delivery wine service has its own branding within the eBay framework

"We're excited to be partnering with eBay to reach a new generation of wine drinkers and look forward to introducing eBay's customers to great-value wines handcrafted in quantities too small for the supermarkets and big retailers," said David Thatcher, CEO of Laithwaite's Wine.

Online retailers are increasingly targeting the food and drink category. Earlier this year, eBay linked up with mobile wine app Drync in the US to expand its online wine platform. Amazon also sells alcohol online in the US and last year launched a one-hour alcohol delivery service in Seattle
