Wine of the Month Club
The first thing you want to do at the end of a gourmet meal is sit back and sip a chilled glass of fine wine. And the last thing you want to do is go out and get the wine, right? A good solution to this problem is to sign up with a wine club and have wine delivered to your door.
A Wine of the Month Club will send you or a loved one wine on a monthly basis. Typically, they will send one or two bottles, though you can order more if you like. Wine clubs usually feature wines that are selected by wine experts with gourmets in mind.
Typical Wine of the Month Clubs might be themed around:
- Connoisseurs - a mix of finest wines
- Cuvees (non-dry, sweet wines)
When picking a wine club, look for one that offers the service you want. If you want to learn as you imbibe, some clubs promises educational materials. If you want to discover exactly what you like, look for a variety club. Either way, wine clubs deepen your appreciation of gourmet wines.
Be sure to check the wine club's website for history, guarantees and return policies. Find out what extra services they offer - for example, free wine accessories - and decide if these fit your needs or wants. Good clubs will not pressure you to re-subscribe.
Wine clubs are also a great way to build up a varied cellar of fine wines. A Wine of the Month Club can also be an ideal way for people in out of the way places to keep well stocked with fine wines. Wine club memberships also make a thoughtful gourmet gift for the wine lover you love.
