That’s why I was fascinated by the concept of Club W – WINC. This personalized wine club delivers top picks to your door based on your “Palate Profile”. To set up your profile, you take a brief quiz that asks you about your taste preferences, then makes recommendations based on that information. I immediately loved this concept: Not only is it geared towards casual enthusiasts like me who are still learning, but it also involves two of my favorite things: Wine, and taking quizzes!
The palate quiz was quick and fun to take. I wondered how it would interpret my results: For example, it asks if you enjoy sweets/chocolate, to which I naturally indicated yes; however, I don’t actually like overly sweet wines. But when it showed the top picks for me, one of the first wines listed was a Malbec, which is my go-to red, so it was a promising start!
- 2015 One from the Quiver® Malbec
- 2014 Passarola Vinho Branco
- 2014 Alchymist Noir Red Blend
One caveat for joining a home delivery wine club: Due to unavoidable legal restrictions, shipping can get a little complicated, as someone must be available to sign for the delivery who is 21+. WINC has a handy page about shipping options that explains this in more detail so you can be prepared before placing your order.
After my wines arrived, I set about hosting wine tasting #2: Personalized edition!
The company also has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, so if you don’t enjoy what you receive, they will give you full credit towards another bottle along with more personalized recommendations to figure out what you will like. I don’t know about you, but tasting new wines every month sounds like as task I would definitely be up to!
