Our Favorite Wine Subscription Boxes of 2018
Our readers nominated their favorite subscription boxes,
Wine clubs might have started years before subscription boxes as we know them today became popular, but they’re anything but old fashioned.
Today’s wine subscriptions offer lots of fun variations! You can get cases of wine tailored to your own palate and preferences, wine plus relaxing & rejuvenating goodies and snacks, or even single glasses of wine to try in their own beautiful vials.
Wine subscriptions offer more variety than ever, too. Look out for subscriptions that focus on California or west coast wines, those that specialize in International wines, and even those that ship direct from the winery itself.
