Having a box of wine delivered to your doorstep every month seems like a too-good-to-be-true dream. Imagine this: you’ve had a painfully long day at work, a tiresome commute home and a less than satisfying lunch. All you want is a glass of wine, but you’ve forgotten to stop at the liquor store. Wouldn’t life be a little better if you had a box of high end, complex and delightfully refreshing wines waiting on your doorstep? Yeah, we think so too.
Luckily for both of us there are plenty of wine subscriptions services to choose from, and we’ve decided to break them all down for your drinking pleasure and convenience, below:
We’ve all heard of HelloFresh’s convenient and delicious meal plan, but I bet you didn’t know they had a wine subscription service too. Their monthly service consists of six full size bottles of red, white, mixed. Better yet, each box comes with pairings that correspond perfectly to HelloFresh recipes. That way, not only are you treating yourself to a nourishing, fulfilling meal, but you also get to indulge in a perfectly paired glass of wine. Not a HelloFresh customer? No worries, the subscription is also available to non-meal customers. Subscriptions are $89.00 + tax per month and shipping is always included.
Wine Awesomeness is the modern wine drinkers’ answer to a wine club. Each monthly shipment is a curated selection of wines delivered straight to your door, with a few extra goodies thrown in. Each shipment is customizable, so you can choose from red, white or mixed cases in quantities of 3 or 6. Even better, it’s a theme based subscription that comes with accompanying recipes, playlists and articles to make the most of your drinking experience.
Winc believes that finding a great bottle of wine should be just as easy as enjoying one. Winc connects you to a world of exclusive wines tailored to your tastes and offers delivery right to your door. Through a series of questions the great minds at Winc assess your wine palate, and tailor your delivery to your specific tastes. There’s no commitment, and members can skip a month at any time, free of charge. Better yet, if you don’t like a bottle they send you, you won’t have to pay for it.
This quarterly box is packed with flavorful sips and fun surprises for the modern woman. Each box contains two bottles of wine and 5-6 full size fun and rejuvenating beauty products. This subscription service is the perfect gift for any woman who needs a little “me time.”
Vinebox is a wine subscription service that is primarily geared towards discovery. Their unique selection of wines hail from legendary regions like Tuscany, Bordeaux and Burgundy and span far past the ordinary wines found at your local liquor store. Each delivery includes nine glasses of wine, tasting notes, recommendations and pairings. This shipment is ideal for anyone who wants to learn more about fine wines without the investment.
