The Wine List Wine Subscription


For someone who likes drinking wine, I'm pretty clueless about it. How many times haeve you ordered a glass of wine at a bar, been asked which type you'd like, only to panic and say "umm any, the house is fine". The house is not fine. It usually tastes like vinegar, but you're stuck with it because you don't know any better .

Well, like many in lockdown, I've tried taking up some new hobbies...I bought myself a keyboard but it was too hard to teach myself, I took up baking but everything exploded, I've even done more running but am now sat here with sore knees and a twisted ankle. So I've discovered and an even better new hobby, discovering new wines!

The Wine List is a discovery-focused wine subscription service. Aimed at the amateur wine enthusiast who is looking to increase their wine knowlege (hello!), you receive two bottles of wine in the post - usually a white and a red - with tasting cards and a "Wine Principle" to give you a foundation of wine knowledge.

Rather than a customer just getting a case of wine in the post and drinking away, this is all about educating customers who already like wine and would value learning more and educating themselves about it.





The Wine List kindly asked me if I'd like to trial a box, so of course I said yes. I received 'Massaya', a Lebanese white wine, and Cara Sucia Cereza, a red wine. I never would have usually picked these up in a supermarket so it was great to try something new, and the wine tasting cards turned it into an experience I could enjoy with my family - we could take our times to taste and appreciate the wines and give our thoughts on each (yes, they were both delicious!) 

The subscription costs just £39 a month, which although is on the more expensive side is worth it for two decent bottles of wine (which usually retail at around £15-£20 each).
