Winc (Club W) Subscription Review + Coupon – February 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Winc-february-2017-box

Winc (formerly known as Club W) is a wine subscription box that re-imagines the traditional wine club.

Winc offers a regularly changing selection of unique, small production wines that are sourced directly from vineyards and winemakers.

When you sign up to join Winc, you take a short, fun “palate profile” quiz that helps determine your taste in wine. Based on your answers, Winc makes bottle recommendations for you every month. You can go along with their recommendations or choose your own bottles from their regularly changing selection.

If you don’t log in to make your monthly bottle selection, your recommended wines will be sent by default. You can skip a month at any time.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

2016 Outer Sounds Sauvignon Blanc – Value $13

Sauvignon Blanc is one of my favorite wines, so I always make a point to try out new bottles that pop up on the Winc site. This one is from Marlborough, New Zealand (one of the most famous regions for Sauvignon Blanc!), and it’s really delicious. There’s a fresh, bright acidity and the flavor is fruity and citrusy.

2015 Big Beat Red Blend – Value $13

The second bottle I picked out this month is this red blend, and I have to admit that I ordered it largely because of the adorably festive label. How perfect is this for Valentine’s Day?!

Luckily, the wine is just as tasty as the label is cute. It’s a fruit-forward blend of Petit Verdot and Syrah, and it’s really yummy. I think this would be great with food, but it’s also flavorful and easy drinking enough to enjoy on its own.

2015 Matchlock Cabernet Sauvignon – Value $15

Next, I picked out this bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a little fruitier and brighter than I usually expect a Cab to be, but it’s still really tasty. The flavor reminds me of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and baking spices.

ClubW-September-2017-dime-poured

2013 Dime Red Blend – Value $19

I ordered a bottle of Winc’s Dime Red Blend last month, and I loved it so much that I ordered it again this month! Winc crafted this wine in the classic Bordeaux style (it’s a blend of five Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Merlot), and it’s absolutely delicious. It’s rich and full-bodied, and the flavor reminds me of dark red berries, earth, and spice. I love this wine.

Verdict: This was a great Winc box! I really like all of the wines I picked out this month, and I’m absolutely in love with the Dime Blend. It’s so good! If you like trying new small-production wines that you can’t find in the grocery store (or you’re looking for a wine subscription that allows you to hand pick the bottles you receive), I definitely recommend checking out Winc!

What do you think of Winc? What bottles did you pick this month?

  1. When you receive the wine, do you have to sign for them? I saw that wine subscriptions make you sign and show ID but I’m never home during the week when my mail is delivered so that worries me!

    • You do have to sign but I’m getting my shipment delivered to a FedEx kinkos by my work.

    • You just need to have it delivered to a FedEx location and you can sign for it when you pick it up later. One month I wasn’t in town during the delivery and just changed it on the FedEx page if I remember correctly. They’ll provide you with your options for places to pick it up.

  2. I signed up for Winc through the Galentine’s sale. Super pumped. My only overlap with your is that Sauv Blanc. They suggested this other Portuguese wine, but I love Sauvignon Balncs, so I traded. So excited!
