If you’ve been following B2B for a while, it should come as no surprise that I loooove my vino 😉 and bubbly, for that matter! I’m no where near a wine snob, so as long that it’s not Franzia in the box (sorry mom and dad, I just can’t do it!), it’s good for me. But, if you’re like me, you get comfy drinking your “favorite” wines, right? For me, those would be (in no particular order):
- La Crema Chardonnay
- Butternut Chardonnay
- J.Lohr Chardonnary
- Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc
- 90+ Cellars Sauvignon Blanc
- Konos Sauvignon Blanc
- Layer Cake Malbec
…and so on. However, although I certainly have my “favorites”, I’m always open to trying new ones, especially ones that are in my price range ($10-15/bottle), which is why Club W is so awesome (<— full disclosure: this is a referral link- more on that below). My friend Kelly introduced me to this and as soon as I talked about it with RM, we were both totally game. 3 bottles of wine delivered to your house every month?! Sign me up! And, the way the referral program works is that when you sign up using the referral link in this post, you automatically get 2 free bottles of wine as part of your first month shipment. And, anytime someone signs up using your link, which you’ll get if you sign up, you get 1 free bottle, so it works out pretty well.
We’ve received 2 shipments so far, so we are pretty well stocked up, but another perk of this program is you have the option to gift one of your months to someone else, which makes for the perfect birthday present (or Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, anniversary….). Here’s a review of the wines we’ve received. What I love is that they give you a note card for each wine, telling you how to serve it (chilled, room temp, etc.), when to drink it (relaxing, dinner party, etc.) and what to serve it with as well as a recipe. Pretty awesome, right?
We’ve drank the #TBT and the Wayward Wine Co. and have really enjoyed both!
I can’t wait to try these!
So, if this interests you, i definitely suggest checking it out. Please note: I did not receive anything from the company to post this, I just think it’s awesome and wanted to share it with all of you!
And, if you haven’t had enough wine talk already (can there really ever be too much?!), I wanted to share another cool wine-related thing with you. It’s an app (as in application, not appetizer 😉 ) called Drync and what you do is log in, search for the wine you’re looking for (or scan the barcode of one you have and love) and then you have the option of having it sent to you or to your local liquor store. Since we aren’t always home (and you need to sign to get the delivery) and since they charge to deliver to your home, we opted to have the wine sent to our local Kappy’s which was so easy.
It came with a wine bag, wine opener and neat wine holder. Pretty cool, right? And if you sign up with this link, YOU get $20 towards your first purchase! And, once you make that purchase, I’ll get $10, so we help each other get free wine 🙂
Phew! How’s that for some serious wine talk?! As stated, neither company asked me to blog about them, I just think they’re great and wanted to share the love (and, referrals are never a bad thing 😉 ).
Questions for you: What’s your favorite type of wine? Have you ever heard of either or these? Have you ever done a monthly wine subscription?
