Questions of the Day:

  1. How do you judge the value of a wine club?  If you receive wines you like, but don’t love, is the still worthwhile as long as those wines introduce you to something new, expand your tasting experience, and total a cost that is more than the cost of the club?
  2. Are you a member of the Gary Vee Wine Club or have you tried any of this month’s wines?  What did you think?

Overall: 3.5 Corks

    You inspired me to join a wine club. It gives me access to limited production wines, gives me a discount at the winery, free tastings at the winery, and som and thing to look forward to a few times/year!
    Side note, my senior couple neighbors are clearly members of a few wine clubs because on recycling day they always have tons of the packaging. It makes me so proud of them, and also I need to go knock on their door!

      I’m so glad you joined the wine club! And, it definitely sounds like you need to knock on there door to find out what wine they’re bringing home. Maybe you could do a little wine club tasting party where you each open one of the special limited production wines?
