10 Wine Subscription Services to Satisfy Your Inner Sommelier

woman opening a wine bottle

When you buy wine at the grocery store, do you:

  1. Choose one of three go-to bottles every time?
  2. Take a risk based solely on the label artwork or the bottle’s spot on the shelf?

Option 1 is playing it safe. You know you’re going to end up with a bottle you enjoy, but you’re not leaving any room for variety or new taste profiles.

Option 2, on the other hand, can work out great or be a disaster. You’re not going to stand there and Google every bottle that catches your eye, so you really are going in blind when choosing a new bottle on a whim.

Wine subscription boxes and delivery services are here to change the way you drink wine at home. You’ll get to experience new varietals without as much of the risk as a blind grocery store buy—but with the added convenience of not having to leave your couch. See how 10 wine delivery services let you satisfy your inner sommelier at home.

Winc creates and curates hundreds of wines to make wine simpler and more accessible to everyone. To start, you answer six questions about your taste preferences (creating your Palate Profile™), and then Winc recommends bottles they think you’ll like.

You’ll get a box of four bottles delivered monthly. You can opt for only whites, only reds, or a mixture of  both. Before confirming your box, you’ll see each of the wines selected and can remove/add to the box as you see fit. Wines start at $13/bottle.

After each delivery, you rate the wines you try to better improve your recommendations. And, thanks to their satisfaction guarantee, you don’t have to pay for bottles you don’t like. The rating system is also great for choosing your next bottle, as you can read reviews by other Winc members.

2. Bright Cellars

Bright Cellars was created by two MIT grads who developed the Bright Points algorithm, which scores each wine they carry based on 18 attributes and then matches them to your preferences. They curate wines from around the world for a one-of-a-kind experience for your taste buds.

How it works: 1) take the quiz, answering seven questions about your taste preferences (the last question lets you choose reds only, whites only, or a mix of both), 2) view your matches (you can request a swap if you aren’t feeling one), and 3) receive your monthly box at $80/month.

They’ll describe each wine by taste profile, notes, and food pairings—as well as telling you the year and origin of the wine—to help you get to know your potential matches.
