We've gone back and forth on Vinesse over the years, but we recently received several shipments from them, including the Pinot Noir club, and they've really stepped up their game. If you're interested in more than just California Pinot Noir and you don't want to spend a ton of money on it, we really recommend this Pinot Noir wine club. Plus, you get Vinesse's rock solid satisfaction guarantee for every bottle, taking all of the risk out of joining a wine club.
There are a number of wineries out there making affordable Pinot Noir and now we don't have to hunt to find them
We'd always like to know which wines have been in recent shipments. Their transparency could be better.
Ah, Pinot Noir. Undeniably the darling of the consumer wine world for the last, well, how many years has it been since Sideways hit the big screen? As picky as Pinot Noir drinkers are about where their precious juice flows from, they don't hold a candle to how finicky the grapes themselves are... and finicky grapes means expensive wine!
How do we improve the value we get out of drinking Pinot Noir? Pinot Noir wine clubs, of course! You may have noticed that none of the Pinot Noir wine clubs get particularly high ratings on our site. This is largely because we don't think Pinot Noir is a good value in wine... we know, that's sacrilege and blasphemy, and probably some other bad things, too. But, well, it's what we believe after tasting varietals and blends from around the world and in every price range.
However, as Pinot clubs go, the Pinot Noir Wine Club from Vinesse is a pretty good value... especially if you're not used to high-end, cherrytastic fruit-bomb Pinot Noir from places like New Zealand's Central Otago, Oregon's Willamette Valley, and California's Russian River Valley. In this club you'll find lesser known Pinot Noirs from regions not famous for their Pinot, but that's how you get such a great price on the Prince of Picky-Grapes (yes, I just made that up).
This club isn't really for experienced or high-end Pinotfiles, but if you like Pinot and want to learn more about it, give the Pinot Noir Wine Club from Vinesse a go.
With our Pinot Noir Wine Club, you'll encounter lavish wines loaded with flavors reminiscent of black cherry, dried herb, cola, smoke and mocha. Each delivery offers premium, elegant wines from world-famous regions like California’s Russian River Valley or France’s acclaimed Burgundy region.
Classic food companions are king salmon, lamb chops or duck breast, but it will match happily with beef Stroganoff: the earthy mushroom sauce may be the ultimate companion for this malleable red.
In addition, you’ll receive wine tasting notes on each selection within your shipment. These individualized notes provide insights into the subtle variations of each wine—including what recipes pair well, detailed wine information, wine country touring tips, and additional hints to help you enjoy your wine to the fullest.
