By now most of you have probably caught on to my obsession with wine clubs. What better way to continually get your favorite wines shipped right to your door?! Back in October I discovered a different wine club that quickly became a favorite for many reasons. I do not look forward to a wine club shipment more than I do Vinfluence…I literally get giddy with anticipation the day I know UPS is to bring it to my door. I rarely (if ever?) right an entire blog post on one wine club but I truly believe that Vinfluence is so special that you all need to know about it.
Why I love this wine club…
First, and foremost, what I love about Vinfluence is that each month I get shipped wine from a DIFFERENT boutique, artisan winery. I don’t know of many other wine clubs where you get wine from different wineries. The variety and quality of the wines that they ship you are stellar. Also, I love that she is supporting the small time vintners rather than the massive conglomerates. It is so important to purchase small and help local farmers, in my opinion.
Second, the owner of Vinfluence, Shannon, travels from winery to winery HERSELF searching for what she be sent out each month. Do you know how rare that is? She spends her days finding the best wineries out there in order to bring them in to your kitchen. P.S. Her taste buds are fantastic….the wines she chooses are truly incredible (probably helps she is a wine educator and sommelier).
Another reason why I love this wine club is because she donates 20% (!!!!!) of your wine club purchase to a charity. What’s better than drinking great wine and donating to some fantastic charities at the same time?
Lastly, the price! You will be very hard pressed to find a wine club of this caliber at such a low price. Once I tasted the wines I was sent I was literally shocked that she was able to provide that level of quality at that price. Give it a try and you will see what I am talking about.
