When did we start loving subscriptions? I have taken my spin with the beauty box subscriptions and I have finally found one I can get behind, and it’s all thanks to Bright Cellars.
After setting up an Instagram account to supplement the Wine Not? blog, I received a follow announcement from Bright Cellars. I visited their page, and learned that they were a wine club, that would match you to wines based on other things you enjoy. Naturally I took the quiz, as I was intrigued.
After completing the quiz, you are matched with 4 wines each month. You can skip a month, or cancel your subscription at any time. Sixty dollars monthly buys your wine, and comes with a customized Bright Points rating based on your preferences. The best part? If you don’t love a wine in your box, your personalized wine conceriege will help you pick a complimentary bottle to be included in your next month’s subscription.
The Bright Cellars team tastes wine each month, and only 1 in 12 bottles is selected to be included in subscriptions. Wines are curated from around the world highlighting such places as Portugal, South America (my favorite), Italy and more.
I placed my order after receiving my wine matches. I’ll admit, I was very excited to see a chardonnay from Chile featured, as you know from my Matetic Vineyard blog. I took the plunge, and was immediately matched to a wine concierge that sent me details on my tracking, and offered up help at each step. I was also kept abreast of where my shipment was via my wine concierge, who even let me know when it was delayed. The wine arrived and included a temperature serving chart, as well as fun packing materials. Here’s what came in my subscription:
I absolutely recommend trying Bright Cellars. Their customer service experience alone is worth it. In reality, you’re paying less than $20 per bottle, which is a steal for good wine. You also get a referral code, allowing you to earn bonus bottles.
When it comes to Bright Cellars, the answer is Wine Not?
