POV: You're looking for a wine subscription that's personalized to your interests but also helps you discover unique brands that you may not know about or be able to buy in most stores.

You want the best membership discounts and perks... Firstleaf

Any other wine lovers out there stuck on a tight budget? While I try not to spend too much on wine each month,  I can't help but give into Firstleaf's insane discounts on wine. All bottles of wine that fall under Firstleaf Exclusives are 60% off retail value for subscribers which ends up dropping down the average cost of each bottle of wine to only $13! Needless to say, I totally stock up on Shiraz.

If you need extra guidance in selecting the right wines ... Firstleaf

One of my favorite features of using Firstleaf is that it has its own Wine Concierge team. Although I know a fair amount about wine, I'm always down to try new blends from regions all around the world. When I find myself growing tired of the same types of wine, I just reach out to the team to ask for their input and they always send me the perfect new bottle to try.

You want the cheapest wine subscription... Winc

If you're solely focused on subscribing to the cheapest wine subscription, then Winc has what you're looking for as it only costs $59.95 per month for a set of four wines. However, going cheap has its own costs down the road and you may be missing out on world-class wines by prioritizing price over the entire package.

You want organic and vegan wine options... Winc

Winc offers a ton of options for organic and vegan wines which is quite amazing since most wine subscriptions do not carry certified organic wines due to the price and process associated with achieving organic certification. I can definitely understand why this feature would be important to some consumers, especially vegans.

However, the price for Winc's organic wines varies considerably even if you are a member, which is why I still prefer Firstleaf as it offers an organic Australian Shiraz that falls under my member discount.

You're searching for a brand whose wines have the most awards... Firstleaf

While I'm certainly no wine snob, I'm beyond impressed with Firstleaf's selection of wines. Many of them have obtained global recognition and their wines have amassed a total of 2,427 awards and counting to date!

Two of my favorite bottles that I've tried, Isolde's Rapture 2016 Red Blend and Disorderly Conduct 2016 Dark Bold Red, actually earned Double Golds at the 2018 International Women’s Wine Competition - I totally see why after getting through each of them way quicker than I should have.

You're worried about wine not being delivered to your state ... Firstleaf

In case you didn't know, many states have strict regulations on D2C wine sales and do not allow their residents to receive wine subscriptions - I am terribly sorry if this is you! Thankfully, Firstleaf currently ships to 47 states except for UT, MS, and RI.

In stark contrast, Winc is unable to accept orders that are delivered to addresses in AK, AL, AR, DE, HI, KY, MI, MS, NJ, RI, SD, and UT...so, knowing this crucial fact makes it a lot easier for many subscribers to choose Firstleaf over Winc.

Ultimate Winner: Firstleaf

Firstleaf is the sure winner here thanks to its amazing customer perks and discounts, availability for shipping,  superior customer service, and its amount of award-winning wines. I think that Firstleaf is extremely well-rounded for a wine subscription and offers incredibly competitive prices for its wine. Not only that, it goes the extra mile to ensure that each of its subscribers is beyond satisfied with their purchase and gets the most out of their subscription.
