We've seen an influx lately of subscription services. What is that about? Each week or month, items are delivered to the home that you may or may not find interesting. In many cases, you don't even get to pick the items that arrive. Is this something you already do? What seemed to start with a Dollar Shave Club exploded into every other area on the market. This includes food, underwear, makeup, and more.
However, something that many are wondering is right for them are wine club subscriptions. It could seem like a no-brainer, especially if you're a wine lover. But, what are these things, are they any different than other subscription services, and what can you expect when joining one? Let's take a look at some of the need-to-know information when considering joining a BC Wine Club.
Every wine club is different. You can get deliveries once a week, every other week, or once a month. Most are once a month, but again it is very winery dependent. You can also select how many bottles you will want to receive when the bottles are delivered. This gives individuals a great selection of wine that is different and a variety to try with friends or for pairings.
Can You Select Bottles?
There's something that is unique about wine clubs versus other subscription services. Many wineries will let you choose what bottles you would like shipped. However, if you find it difficult to pick out bottles or want something different, more outside the box of your norm, they can handpicked bottles for you. In fact, in many cases, you'll find that a signature bottle is sent monthly which is a 'featured wine.'
Now, if you want a real incentive to try a wine club, the discounts are an excellent perk. When choosing a BC wine club, you'll find you can get a 10% discount. With this, you can enjoy tons of bottles, both new and old, that complement party-throwing and get-togethers. When you choose the wine club, you'll get your monthly subscription. Then, if you choose to make additional purchases, you can apply the discounts.
If you've been on the fence about joining a wine club, don't. Get on board and try it out. There are usually no long-term commitments, and if you don't enjoy the first shipment, you can cancel. Depending on the winery, you may or may not get to choose your wines that are sent. At Larch Hills Winery, their wine club allows customers to choose their bottles each month, along with the additional discounts; it's an easy decision— try at least once.
