Club W: An Excellent Opportunity For Adventurous Wine Lovers
Last week you may remember me mentioning Club W when I was discussing my recent desire to learn more about and drink more quality wine. Well today, I’m going to tell you more about just what exactly Club W is, and why I think it’s so great.
Club W describes themselves as a
“global winery and we’re all about making ridiculously delicious wine at a fantastic price. We build direct relationships with vineyards and farmers to make exceptional small lot wines at prices impossible to achieve at retail, we match them up to your palate, and deliver them directly to your doorstep.”
What does this mean for you and me? Well it means that we get a wide variety of fantastic tasting small batch wines delivered to us from all over the world for a fraction of the cost of buying these bottles in a store. Unfortunately, there are still some states in the US that do not allow wineries or retailers to directly ship wine to you. To see if you’re able to get Wine shipped to your door, I recommend this web page. After the appeal of prohibition each state made their own laws and regulations in regards to alcohol and its handling. Some of the states prohibited the shipment to private homes.
So, back to Club W. The first thing you will do when signing up is they will ask you to fill out a quick 6 question flavor profile consisting of easy questions such as how you take your coffee or if you prefer milk chocolate vs dark chocolate. This develops your flavor profile for them and gives them an idea of what kind of wine might be ideal for you. This worked great for me and will for you as well, if you do not have a lot of experience drinking wine or if you want to try something new. It worked great for me because when I started, I could hardly tell you the difference between a white wine and a red. Besides the color of course! Then based off of your flavor profile they will give you a recommendation of many different wines you may enjoy, and give you the options for how you would like to set up your shipment. You can have them deliver a box of wine every month, every other month, ect. A box of wine automatically consists of 3 bottles of your choice but you can add as many additional bottles in as you would like before it ships.
The thing I like best about Club W is that it’s not only an online store where you can buy wine but it is also a great learning resource for each wine they sell. Each wine will have a short 2 minute video describing the wine, its characteristics, where it’s from and what makes it so great. You can also easily find recipes on their site which they pair with a wine they would recommend you drink with that meal. Great for people who like trying both great new cooking recipes as well as great wine!
Club W has taught me a lot about wine, but I still have a ways to go. I’m really looking forward to my upcoming trip to Europe where I will be spending a lot of time in Italy and drinking all the wonderful wine the country has to offer.
If you are interested in some great wine and learning more about it I highly recommend Club W. If you Sign up by my link here you will get two bottles for free with your first shipment and I will get credit for 1 free bottle as well! We both win, and we both get some fantastic free wine! Take a look.
