You guys. I’m definitely a wine-o, and sometimes going to the same store to get wine just gets old. I also have this weird thing where I love the subscription box idea. I’ve done other wine boxes, a snack box, workout clothing box, grocery box, and even a coffee box and I just love the simplicity of a monthly delivery of my favorite things! I always want to be as transparent as possible on my little corner of the internet, so I want to be clear that I’m not being compensated by anyone to write this blog post. I just really like this product and want to share the products I love!
So let’s talk about how it works! Click on this link, Bright Cellars, which will direct you to the companies website. From there, you take a flavor profile quiz which is super easy and takes less than 5 minutes. Your personal wine concierge then creates your box which contains 4 wines. If you’ve tried other wine boxes like this one, please comment below and let me know if I should try them! One of the reasons I love this box is that the customer service is really great and quick with their responses. My wine concierge emails me minutes after I review my wines and uses that information to create a better box for me the following month. Pictured above is the first box I received, and I loved 2 out of the four wines! The other two wines were still good, and while it was really fun to try these new wines, I learned that I wouldn’t want to buy them again.
One of the wines in particular stood out to me and I will definitely be ordering another bottle. It is the 2017 Zweigelt from Herz & Heim Vineyards. This grape varietal is from Austria, and this particular vintage has notes of warm baking spices, dark berry flavors, and medium bodied. I enjoyed this wine with a really great grilled steak and late summer vegetables, which paired really nicely. It’s currently sold out, but I hope it comes back soon!
So if you’d like to give this a try, click the link here, and you’ll receive two free bottles on your first box! This is a $30 credit, which is like getting 4 bottles of wine for $30. The only thing that is a bit of a hassle with this box, is that you need to have someone with a valid ID over 21 to sign for the box upon delivery. If I know that I won’t be home to receive the box, I usually just call FedEx after it has shipped and ask them to hold it at my nearest Walgreens which I can then pick up at anytime!
Once I open up the bottles from my second box I just received, I’ll post again about my favorites! Feel free to leave a comment about your experiences with wine boxes like this or any other great subscription box.
