Why should you get a wine subscription?
Generally, a subscription will take the hassle out of having to choose from an overwhelming number of options. While it is fun for some to look through every single bottle in stores and wineries, the sheer variety of options can make this an exhausting ordeal. Subscriptions still give you the chance to choose and discover, but with a much smaller and personalised pool.
Are wine clubs and wine subscriptions the same?
Yes! The idea of a ‘wine club’ started out in 1972, when Paul Kalemkiaran Sr. put up a wine “monthly selections” display in his California liquor store for his customers who would constantly ask for his recommendations. Eventually, due to popular demand, the monthly selections would be delivered directly to customers’ homes and it became known as the Wine of the Month Club.
Nowadays, there are plenty of Australian wine clubs that you can join, depending on your tastes and budget. ‘Wine subscription’ is just another name for the same service, since it works like a magazine or any other kind of subscription where selections are sent to your doorstep.
