When you start your sign up, you'll be asked a series of questions designed to figure out your palate and recommend specific wines. This was somewhat difficult because my husband and I prefer different wines. He likes reds with earthiness and full body. I like whites, acidic and tart. However it was a lot of fun to go through what was available and choose.
The Cost: Monthly deliveries start at $39.99 for three bottles plus shipping.
What You Get: At least three bottles of wine of your choice. If you forget to choose, you will be sent bottles based on your profile.
Here's the interesting thing... The wines on Winc.com consist of both imported and domestic wines made in partnership with some of the top winemakers in the world and wines they make ourselves. So this is the only way you'll get ahold of some of these wines. So Winc makes some of their own wines, too!
For the purposes of review, I chose two reds and two whites. I do not profess to be a wine connoisseur of any type although I feel like this shipment could make for a fun Girl's Night In. :)
Matchlock Cabernet Sauvignon- "Aged in neutral and French oak, Matchlock reveals scents of black cherry, ripe strawberry and baking spice, for a full-bodied, masculine, structured wine that exhibits a touch more bright fruit and acid than its counterparts in Napa Valley."
VERDICT: While I maybe can't tell you how perfect every wine is. I can attest to the quality of the subscription itself. The wines run around a reasonable $13.99 each although there are some fancier ones that hit $25 but for the most part these are very affordable wines. With such a variety to chose from, you'll always be able to try something new and sneak in some old favorites while you're at it. You'll also get a 10% case discount if you order twelve bottles, which makes them even cheaper.
Cancellation is easy using their Live Chat feature. If you get a wine you hate, contact them and they'll refund you and help find you something you'll like better! Plus for every wine you try and then rate on their site, you'll get cash credit!
You can also skip a month any time you wish without any repercussions. That ability is invaluable in any subscription. I wish they ALL offered this kind of modification.
If you're a wine lover, I can't see any reason NOT to try it unless you aren't into the types of wines they feature. Especially with Winc's willingness to refund for wines that don't make the cut.
As a subscription box addict, I heartily approve of wine deliveries! If you would like to sign up to receive your own Winc shipments, you can sign up here! Get $20 off your first box, too, which is a rockin' deal!
