Cellars Wine Club Review – (Pictures) – 8 Things You Need to Know

cellars-wine-club-screenshot I first tried Cellars about two years ago and to this day, I still remember some of the bottles I’ve gotten. I think that’s probably a good sign.

When my order arrived, I dove in, opened it right away and snapped this photo. They offer a few options of clubs to choose from, but this one is their stand Premium club which comes with two bottles of wine and also the “Cellars News” brochure thing you can see in the photo.

Since I review wine on this website, they sent me this sample for free, which included one white and one red, but one their site you can select whether you want all reds or one of each. I prefer red myself but trying their white was good since I can talk about it more here. And then every month, you’ll get two new bottles you haven’t tried before.

So what did I think?

I started with this white wine because my wife was home and that’s what she prefers. What a nice guy I am, I know right? Anyway, so I dove it, popped that cork right out, always loving the noise it makes on its way out. I think I’ve develop a Pavlov’s dog syndrome and begin salivating as the sound of a cork being pulled out of a bottle of wine.premium-club-cellarsI swear I don’t have a problem lol. Right, so I immediately noticed a fresh pear aroma and a burst of citrus. I let the first glass air out for a few minutes. Side note, my wife dove right in. After a few swigs I was tasting something I couldn’t put my finger on, so referred back to the Cellars News that came with it. Thank god for that because I found out it was MELON! That was a tricky one, maybe one day I won’t have to rely on the guide, but that is the added bonus of joining a club, especially if you are a novice drinker.

Then, I dove into the red. Not in the same night people! Geez, I’m not a tank. Two to three glasses of wine in one night is my limit and I weigh about 180 pounds so that’s probably within the healthy standards, right? Just say right and make me feel okay. Thanks. The RED. Yes, so I got in there a night or two later. The wife sat this one out, but she was a fan of the white and I let her have the rest of that. Again, GREAT husband. :)

I popped the cork on the red and let it aerate for about thirty minutes before splashing in. I immediately tasted that dark berry of plum, blackberry which then transitioned to a smooth oak finish that made me want another sip. This is clearly tasty wine, guys. Let’s get into those pros and cons.

PROS

  • The taste is there. From a novice drinker to a intermediate, you will find joy in their wine.
  • Options. You can give it as a gift, prepay for a certain period, set your shipping frequency
  • A combination of domestic and international wines really helps open you up to everything that’s out there.
  • Shipping. It’s FREE. Need I say more? Some clubs will charge you $20 per shipment. Ouch.
  • The Cellars News. Not just wine, but the opportunity to learn more about what you are drinking which really completes the club, adding to the experience and/or gift.

CONS

  • The price might be a tad on the high side. Two bottles for $39 might not be the best deal in town, but with wine you tend to get what you pay for. And if it’s a gift, hey, don’t be cheap! :)
  • The Cellars News wasn’t the prettiest pamphlet. Some companies have really beautiful designs that clearly a lot of money was put into. Not a deal breaker though.
  • No freebies. Darn. Some companies do throw in a free gift like a corkscrew, but Cellars doesn’t.

THE VERDICT

The most important question is…would I recommend this to a friend? Is this a pass, consider, or recommend?

For me, it’s a RECOMMEND. I would buy this for myself and I can confidently tell others that they should have a positive experience with this wine club.
