Wine Subscription Services You Can Try at Home

April 3, 2020

Once upon a time, it was just a matter of convenience to have your groceries delivered to your doorstep. Amid the spread of COVID-19, it is now one of the several safety precautions one can take to practice social distancing. Thankfully, over the last couple of years, the growth of wine subscriptions has skyrocketed for knowledgeable vino drinkers and for those who aren’t as familiar. Some even help customers pair the best food and wine combinations. Companies like Winc Wine Club, Bright Cellars, and Wine Awesomeness let their subscribers rate their wines, and, in return, their in-house experts will then recommend the best wines for each individual based on their palate. There’s a subscription for everyone, no matter what you’re looking for. Get your at-home wine tour ready!

Winc Wine Club

Members of Winc Wine Club will receive four wines each month—one for every week! New members answer a six-question survey to help the wine experts asses your tastebuds. After you try a bottle, the customer will then rate the wine to help Winc narrow down picks for the next month’s shipment. The service is very flexible, so you can skip a month or cancel whenever you’d like! The price per box varies based on the wines included, but they start at $13 a bottle.
