There are subscription clubs for just about anything these days - from pet food, to gym wear, to cosmetics, and to pretty much anything in between.
One of the most popular types of subscription clubs continues to be wine clubs, which have gone from strength to strength since first being introduced in 1969.
The pandemic led to many more people joining wine clubs, as demand for both home delivery and alcohol soared - chances are, you can think of at least one person who has told you about the new wine club they joined over the last 18 months! But what is so great about wine clubs?
Do wine subscription services offer good value for money? And most importantly of all, is a wine club the right choice for you?
Wine clubs make your life easier
One of the biggest draws to wine clubs for many people is the fact that they make your life easier. With a busy life and a hectic schedule, it can be easy to forget to buy wine, or to pick up sub-standard quality bottles because you are in too much of a hurry to put much thought into your purchase.
By joining a wine club, finding high quality wine to enjoy is one less thing to worry about. The wines are delivered to your front door at set intervals (usually every couple of months) so that you always have a supply of impressive wines available to you, without even needing to leave the house!
The added bonus of this is that you will no longer need to struggle home carrying several bottles of wine, which is not something that anyone looks forward to.
So, if you have a fast paced life with little time for wine shop browsing, or simply like the convenience of things being delivered to your door, a wine club could be a great option for you.
Wine clubs are cost effective
Although the subscription cost of a wine club might seem like a lot at first glance, most wine clubs actually tend to be more cost effective than if you were to buy the same bottles individually.
This is because wine clubs give you exclusive discounted pricing on wines, usually coupled with free delivery, saving you even more money. In addition to this, as a wine club member you will most likely have access to a range of members only benefits and discounts, further increasing the value for money.
For example, if you join the DrinkWell Wine Club, you will receive a number of free gifts with your first case, as well as free delivery on all of the wines on our website, just in case you fancy a bit more wine one month! If you are a sucker for a good deal or an exclusive offer, you should definitely look at joining a wine club.
You get to try a variety of new and interesting wines
We’ve all been there - you set out to the shop on a Friday evening to get yourself a nice bottle of wine to enjoy, with every intention of picking something new and exciting to try.
You look through all the wines available, read all of the labels and mull over what exactly it is you fancy that night. They all sound so delicious, it is simply impossible to choose, even though you have already been standing in the wine aisle for 15 minutes.
Then, the decision becomes overwhelming, and the thought that a new bottle might not be that nice fills you with dread, so you settle for your old faithful favourite bottle of go-to wine, head back to your house, and have a Friday evening that is exactly the same as all the others you have had this month.
If the above sounds like a regular ritual of yours, joining a wine club will be a great way for you to spice up your wine-drinking life! A good wine club will send you a variety of hand-picked and taste tested wines, usually consisting of all different colours, varieties and places of origins, and you’ll most likely get seasonal wines.
With over 10,000 grape varieties out there, chances are you don’t know half of what you are missing by just sticking to your trusted varieties. It will be a great way for you to find out if Californian Sauvignon Blanc is actually your favourite wine, or if it is just the type of wine you always pick!!
One big advantage of joining a wine club over buying wine at your local shop is that some good wine clubs provide a satisfaction guarantee - DrinkWell included!
If you are not happy with any of the bottles in your case for any reason, just let us know and we will either refund you for that bottle or send you something more suited to your taste.
This makes our wine clubs pretty risk free - unlike with shop bought wine, where you can’t just return to the shop with an opened bottle and declare your dissatisfaction!
