Clink, Clink – Welcome to Winc!
Winc’s monthly wine club helps you discover new, high-quality wines that match your taste preferences.
Wine is one of the little simple pleasures in my life. Although I enjoy a glass every now and then, I don’t enjoy shopping for wine. Why? I’m not a wine expert. When I head to the store to buy a bottle, I stand there looking at hundreds of bottles of wine. Up and down the aisles. Not really sure what I’m looking at. Often times, I walk out with nothing or end up buying the same wine over and over again simply because I know what it tastes like. Winc believes that the experience of getting a great bottle of wine should be as simple as enjoying a glassful of good wine. Winc is not your traditional wine club.
Winc partners directly with vineyards and winemakers to bring you fantastic, small-batch wines from vineyards you may not have otherwise had the chance to explore. Each month they make recommendations for you that you can accept or change the selections.
Try Winc and you will get 3 fantastic bottles of wine delivered to your door each month for around $39 + $9 shipping. Order 4 or more bottles for free shipping. While it is a monthly wine club, you are in total control of shipments, so you can skip a shipment anytime and as often as you’d like. You can also send wine as a gift.
You can also see a short video on each bottle of wine you want that describes that wine’s tasting notes, where the grapes came from, and a little backstory about the wine maker. You can easily watch these videos on your smartphone by scanning the bar code on the bottle. Of course, there is no obligation to learn anything about the wine you’re drinking. You can just sit back, put your feet up and sip your wine!
The company has been perfecting how wine is made, distributed, perceived and purchased via their Palate Profile quiz that recommends wine based on your unique tastes. It takes the hassle and guesswork out of picking a bottle from your local liquor store and delivers the perfect bottle directly to your doorstep.
The website is super easy to navigate. What I like best is the fact that you can choose to have a selection sent monthly but you aren’t locked it. You can cancel or skip a month or two at any time. Plus, if you really don’t like a selection that was made for you – no problem – you won’t have to pay for it.
I filled out my Palate Profile and let Winc make the selections for me based on my profile. I was very happy with 3 of the 4 choices. My 4th choice didn’t thrill me only because I’m really not a huge fan of red wine, but my family enjoyed it so it was a win for me.
Your shipment arrives well packaged with each bottle secured well. I particularly like the sturdy handle on the box that makes taking your Winc with you to a get-together super easy! After each delivery, be sure to rate the wines that Winc sent to help them make better selections for your next order/shipment.
The Palate Profile quiz takes just a few minutes (6 questions). Based on the answers in your quiz, Winc recommends wines from their collection. You can change any of the recommendations to something you choose yourself or go with the choices that were made for you.
