I Reviewed All The Wine Clubs And This One Came Out On Top
I don't know about you, but when I want a nice glass of wine after a long, stressful day, the last thing I want to do is get in my car and drive to the liquor store. I've always had my favorite bottles, but lately I've been wanting to expand my wine knowledge so I actually know what I'm talking about when I order a bottle at a restaurant. Joining a wine club sounded the perfect way to start refining my palette and make sure I always have bottles on hand, but I didn't know which was right for me.
After doing some research online, I found the wine club people seemed to love the most was Tasting Room. It works a little differently than the standard clubs. Instead of just getting shipments of whatever wines the club happens to recommend, Tasting Room has you take a quick quiz to get some info about your preferences - like whether you prefer milk chocolate or dark. This helps determine which wines you get in the sampler kit. The kit contains with 6 mini bottles, which you then rate on their website. Based on your feedback, Tasting Room creates a personalized wine profile for you that is always evolving.
Tasting Room analyzes your wine ratings to predict your preferences and send you a personalized shipment of wines for your unique tasting profile. The algorithm becomes smarter and smarter with every shipment as it analyzes the growing number of taste preference ratings you provide. It's by far the best custom wine club I've seen. It helped me refine my taste, and has taught me so much about wine regions and different vineyards. But you don't have to take my word for it. Here's what other customers are saying about
“Keep sending me great wine"
"I've joined 3 wine clubs in my day – this one was by far the best. The tasting kit experience was fun, but the wine they sent was the best part. All bottles in the shipments were really great. I've only had to reach out to customer service once and I've been a member for 10 months. When I reached out, they got back to me same day and issued me a wine credit for the one bottle I wasn't a fan of. Pretty awesome. Keep sending me great wine!"
- Jennifer S., BBB
“Great selections and specials"
“I have been using Tasting Room for a few years now, and have continuously impressed with the variety of bottles they send. Tasting Room really listens to their customers feedback, and if you ever happen to not like a particular bottle they send, they will credit your account, or replaced it with something else. That would never happen at the liquor store! Great selections and specials - who could ask for more?"
- Rick K., BBB
“Different and fun experience"
“Different and fun experience to have a tasting kit sent out first to help determine your wine profile. Great wine selection and wonderful customer service."
- Kate L, Groupon
“The tasting bottles were exceptionally adorable"
“The tasting bottles were exceptionally adorable. The regular-sized bottles of wine were good quality and we definitely enjoyed the ones we've tried so far!"
“We make a date night out of trying the different sample bottles"
“We make a date night out of trying the different sample bottles. Everything shipped really quick. Just be sure to cancel or you'll pay full price for your next shipment."
- Nicole S., Groupon
