Why yes, I have another subscription box. Besides Stitch Fix and (most recently) Trunk Club, I have also started receiving wine through Bright Cellars. Why? For me, it’s a combination of convenience and trying new things. Moving back to Tennessee meant no wine in grocery stores, which means having to go to multiple places for groceries. When I realized I could get the wine delivered to my doorstep, it was a no-brainer.
Bright Cellars Breakdown
The process is very simple:
Step 1: Take a wine quiz to build your profile
Step 2: Get matched to your first wine experience
Step 3: Rate your matches to improve your experience
With my first month, I used a discount code to receive half off. I chose to skip the month of November and moved my order to December (Bright Cellars has great customer service). If you want to try Bright Cellars for yourself for half off, use this link.
Now for the fun part – here’s what I got this month (descriptions are courtesy of Bright Cellars):
Piccolino Falaghina (Puglia, Italy)
“A crisp and refreshing white wine with a floral aroma and a touch of sweetness from Puglia in southern Italy. Savor this opportunity to try Falanghina, a unique local Italian grape. This example is perfect with grilled fish, shellfish, or buffalo mozarella cheese.”
“This rose is lush with ripe, tropical fruit, including apricot and peach and has the aroma of fresh-cut orange blossoms. Cerasuolo is the Italian word for cherry, and this wine is bursting with ripe cherry flavor!”
Nebel Riesling 2014 (Rheinhessen, Germany)
“New 2014 vintage of one of our top rated wines. A crisp, refreshing German Riesling with a splash of exotic tropical fruit flavor. Enjoy the aroma of ripe fruit, flowers, and honey bursting from the bottle. Pair with shellfish or asian dishes like pad thai or stir fry.”
Buffalo Grove Sauvignon Blanc 2013 (California, USA)
“This Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and delightfully acidic with grapefruit, pear and green apple flavors. Enjoy this wine with a green salad with vinaigrette dressing, fish served with a lemon wedge or a fresh, salty Feta cheese.”
Overall, I’m excited to get started with these new wines. My profile settings reflect a white and rosé wines only preference, but they have plenty of red wines to choose from as well, if that’s what you prefer. I will probably break into the Nebel Riesling first. Moving forward, I will have my deliveries set for 1 box every 3-4 months, to space it out a little.
