The Best Wine Subscription Services

Updated: 4 days ago

Winc

When you sign up with Winc, you first complete a six-question quiz about your taste preferences (how you take your coffee, how you feel about salt, if you like citrus), which helps you get a curated trio of bottles. That's Winc's shtick: giving you precisely what you want.

Usual Wines

For those who prefer wine by the glass rather than by the bottle, Usual Wines is your answer, offering the perfect measure of wine every time.


Thrive Market

Everything on Thrive Market's site is meant to be clean, even the wine. You can filter the wines by multiple categories, including organic, no added sugar or sweeteners, pesticide-free, and biodynamic—or browse by region or varietal.


Vinebox

Starting at $72 per quarter, this service lets subscribers taste new wines and discover other regions without committing to a full bottle: Vinebox picks out what they deem to be the nine best wines of the season and delivers them in vials, not bottles.


The Sip

Founders Erica Davis and Catherine Carter started The Sip to make trying new-to-you champagnes a little easier—and more affordable. For $55 per box, you'll get two to three mini bottles of champagne or sparkling wine sent to your doorstep bi-monthly.

Blue Apron

Blue Apron, wildly popular for its meal kits, launched a wine subscription back in 2015, and it's quite perfect for food lovers. Each bottle comes with tasting notes, pairing tips, and the story behind it.

Bright Cellars

Bright Cellars is another quiz-forward wine subscription company. You're asked to answer many questions, ranging from ones about candy to red versus white; then, you're given a resulting four bottles.

Firstleaf

The coolest part about Firstleaf is that you see exactly how much you're saving had you bought the same bottle from an IRL wine shop—and the Firstleaf prices tend to be about half the retail ones. Here, you're matched with bottles via a quiz.


WineSociety

If you're partial to the canned wine trend, you can get that via subscription box, too. Each of WineSociety's classic blends (red, white, and rosé) clock in at 500 mL, which amounts to about four glasses per can.


Wine Awesomeness

These packs are available with all white bottles, all red, or a mix, and they hail from all sorts of faraway places—La Mancha, Spain; Lodi, CA; Montevideo, Uruguay.
