It’s always a good idea to have multiple bottles of wine in your home. Like if you have company over and don’t know their taste preferences, or if you desperately need to unwind and the thought of having to leave your residence to go to the liquor store would be too exhausting to even consider. Though the best part about having a mighty wine supply is that you can always dig into it when you need a quick gift. Of course, building up your wine collection can also feel daunting — especially if you’re a wine novice.

It’s one of the reasons wine subscriptions are a thing.

You’ve likely been fed a few ads or maybe even know someone who subscribes to a company that delivers bottles of wine to their doorstep every month, and it makes sense.

While you’re not getting a box of wine automatically sent to your door every month, the site’s Angel members save 40-60% on their orders, plus they get other incentives like free samples.

Winc

Winc

One of the better-known and more affordable wine club memberships, Winc is ideal for the wine novice or the wine drinker who’s not a total snob. Because Winc makes “wine for the people, not the critics.” 

The wine subscription service offers vino it produces itself — including the rosé beloved by Instagram influencers, “Summer Water” — but don’t let the virality of it all turn you away because we’ve tested a few of Winc’s wines and were pleasantly surprised. Again, I’m no wine expert, just a simple person who, when presented with a bottle of wine, will dutifully consume half, if not all, of it without blinking an eye. But my …….
