Winc (formerly Club W) is a wine subscription service that sends wine directly to you each month based on your personalized palate profile. A “global winery,” Winc advertises that it has “direct relationships with vineyards and farmers to make exceptional small lot wines at prices impossible to achieve at retail.”
You fill out a quick survey about what tastes you like – black coffee, citrus, etc., and Winc makes a customized recommendation of 3 bottles that fits what you like. Then, for $6 flat shipping (or free if you pick a 4th bottle), it comes to your house!
All the wines this month!

Winc Journal is amazing. Articles are about wine, food and how to pair the two. If you want to show your wine knowledge it’s a must read…
My favorite thing about Winc Journal… the wine pairings. This “insider” look into how to best showcase my wine has made me the hostess with the mostest. I wish they gave recipes for a three course meal plus dessert.
2016 Porter & Plot Cabernet Sauvignon. I hardly want to open this bottle and ruin the wax seal. I’m looking forward to the tasting notes of cherry, fig and violet. I will have to take this to my parent’s house so I can decant it as suggested and maybe even enjoy a nice ribeye steak. This is sounding more and more like a daddy/daughter date, my dad likes great wine.
2016 Porter & Plot Sauvignon Blanc. This dry white tastes like green apple and lemon, not to mention earthy. I liked the light body of this that would really let a main dish like fish shine through while still being a perfect companion. I’m also liking that Porter & Plot is eco-friendly while making great wines.
2015 Porter & Plot Pinot Noir. Since I started receiving Winc I have begun to love Pinot Noir and this is the wine I am most looking forward to trying. This bottle boasts being dark and supple with notes of blue fruit. Serving suggestions are with cheese or veggies at room temperature. I love wine that can be enjoyed at room temp because I’m impatient and dislike waiting for the perfect temperature.
2016 Field Theory Albarino. I was a little disappointed that the cork fell apart when I opened this bottle and I had to use a bottle saver to ensure freshness. I was for some strange reason enthralled with the shape of this bottle, I think because it reminds me of a liquor bottle more so than a wine bottle. This is a cross between a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc and a creamy Chardonnay, it bursts with aromatic flavors like peaches. I admit that I like chilled wine to be supper cold so I add a few frozen peaches to this for a delectable treat.
Winc prides itself on finding unique varietals and new blends. Wines are chosen based on your flavor preferences, so there is something for everyone! I love that they price ranges from $13 to $38, so no matter what your wine budget is you can also have great wine delivered to your door. This month I loved that eco-friendly wineries were featured, I think it’s great to highlight companies that value the earth like I do. I have been telling everyone about Winc and share it on Facebook like a true marketer, it’s a great way to try new wine!
