Things we love: wine. Things we don’t love: not being able to run to the wine store when we’re low on supplies. The good news? There are plenty of wine subscriptions that will deliver the good stuff straight to our door. And even better news, Winc’s monthly wine subscription, which delivers to most states in the U.S., is currently 35 percent off for new subscribers with code ‘SIPJUNE20’ at checkout.
No, you’re not just putting the fate of your taste buds into the hands of strangers and hoping they know you don’t like buttery Chardonnay. Here’s how it works: When you sign up for a membership, you take a short quiz (like six questions short) that assesses your palate based on other tastes you like. Think: How do you take your coffee? Are you a salt person? What about mushrooms? You enter your date of birth, and then Winc curates four bottles based on your preferences.
The nice part is that you can buy the bottles the algorithm recommends, or you can stray outside of the box and choose wines on your own using the website’s filters. If you like red wine that’s sustainably farmed, there’s a section for you. (There’s even a section if you do like buttery Chardonnay. No judgment.) The prices range start at $13 per bottle and go up to $55, so you can tailor shipments to your budget too.
The only catch with the current 35 percent discount is that you have to buy at least four bottles. We don’t know about you, but we don’t anticipate that being a problem for us.
