Summary

Sometimes you want bubbly, sometimes you want rosé, and with this club you can get both. There aren't many sparkling wine clubs and this is the only wine club we know of that promises rosé in every shipment.

What We Like

A very female-focused brand. The wine industry is dominated by men and men predominantly start companies... this is a business that from the ground up is thinking about how women want to interact with their wine clubs. Which is great, because women represent 70% of buyers in the U.S.

Improvements

As wine clubs go, the options are pretty limited. They only offer monthly shipments and 2-bottle packages.

Bubbles & Rosé Wine Club Review

by WineClubReviews.net
Bubbles & Rose Shipment from <?=$company->name;?>

Overview of Bubbles & Rosé Wine Club

Vinley Market is a new wine box service whose mission is to make wine fun and relaxed. It's rare to think of a wine club as being for a particular gender, but by design Vinley Market appeals to women — their packaging and branding make Vinley Market an especially great choice for gifting for holidays like Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, birthdays, and anniversaries. In particular, the Bubbles & Rosé club really says feminine in an over-the-top way... something a lot of women really like.

The Bubbles & Rosé Club features, as its name suggests, a sparkling wine and a rosé wine each month — it's important to note: this is NOT white zinfandel. Some of the bubbly selections include favorites like Cava, Prosecco, or even Champagne. The selections we received were delightful examples of both types of wine for their price range and since we love both bubbly wines and rosé, we'd happily join this wine club ourselves.

Bubbles & Rosé Wine Club Ratings

At WineClubReviews.net we take an objective approach to our star ratings system. Our written reviews are very much subjective, based on our 5+ years of wine club review experience and our own ideas about what good wine and good value mean. The star ratings are based on 11 attributes that we feel define what a wine club should be. Here is how Bubbles & Rosé Wine Club stacks up on these traits.

Satisfaction Guarantee -

Note: This rating is our objective analysis of Vinley Market’s satisfaction guarantee—not our assessment of whether or not you’re guaranteed to be satisfied with their wines.

The language used on the website doesn't earn a five-star Satisfaction Guarantee rating from us, but we asked the owner via email if she'll replace anything customer's don't like, if even if it's not technically flawed, and she said, "Yep, we will replace. We want them to love the wine that we send!"

Their Return Policy
"At Vinley Market, we want you to love the wine that you find on our site! However, under California law, our Vendors are not allowed to accept wine returns. If your wine is flawed or damaged please let us know so we can assist you in sending a new bottle or providing a credit.""

Quality of Wine -

We found the quality of the wine we received from Vinley Market to be very good. We reserve superlatives for very high-end wine, which isn't what the Bubbles & Rosé wine club is about. These wines are a great way to bring in higher-quality (and more interesting) wines than what's available at your local grocery store. These are the kinds of wines you might find at your local wine shop, without the hassle of actually doing the shopping.

It's worth noting that our shipment contained a micro-production rosé (88 cases produced). The types of wines you get when a winemaker focuses on small-lot wines are quite different than large-production wines. You typically find more character in the way the is structured, more interesting flavor profiles. We drink a lot of rosé from the Santa Barbara area and this rosé was as good as any other boutique selection we've encountered. It was truly a hidden gem, and that's the sort of selection you want at $20/bottle plus shipping.

As a bonus, our bubbly selection also happened to be a rosé. We happen to be big fans of sparkling rosé because it often brings a fruitier experience than a typical dry sparkling wine. This Cremant d'Alsace (Cremant is the Frenchh term for sparkling wines made in the Methode Champenoise but outside of the Champagne region itself). Again, a lovely wine at an appropriate price.

Price of Wine -

We feel the Bubbles & Rosé Club offers good quality wine at a fair price. By fair, we mean close to retail. Overall the price feels a little steep given that good sparkling wines and rosés often retail in the $14-16 range but the monthly shipments are $40 + shipping. The value of the wine club is hard to argue with given that this is the ONLY wine club on the market which always ships a rosé and is unique in a pairing of rosé with bubbly. A comparable Sparkling wine club costs $80 per shipment for three bottles.

Uniqueness of the Wine Club -

The Bubbles & Rosé Club is unique. In fact, that's where a significant amount of their wow factor comes from — nobody else is offering this kind of wine club.

Customer Service Record -

Because Vinley Market is new, we don't have any customer complaints recorded. We also couldn't find any online. If issues arise, we'll update this review.

Curation Process -

Vinley Market is relying on their own wine industry knowledge and strategic partnerships with sommeliers to curate their wine selection. Their goals around curation are to find wines that over deliver and "are not basic." We don't typically put a lot of emphasis on curation methods in our ratings system.

Personalization -

As personalization goes, Vinley Market is not at all personalized. That's not a bad thing, but it's worth noting if you're picky and you want to customize your shipments. We think the biggest personalization factor missing is the ability to get shipments quarterly or bi-monthly instead of just monthly.

Discount Opportunities -

We look at three areas when evaluating the discount opportunities offered by a wine club. Is there an introductory offer to sweeten the deal? Are there discounts available for buying more of wines you loved in your shipments? Are there special discounts only available to members?

Vinley Market offers 10% off on your first shipment. You can get that deal from our site with promo code XX.

Rather than specifically focus on reorders of wines from shipments, Vinley Market offers its members 10% on any wine purchases made, exclusing the shipments themselves.

Convenience -

Vinley Market focuses on the milennial market, so they offer at least the basic minimum of the conveniences a fully digital consumer wants. The most important of these conveniences are timely shipping notifications. According to the owner, customers are "...updated at each stage. When their credit cards are charged, when the box is ready for shipment, plus timely shipping updates with tracking as soon the wine club is shipped." We don't see the ability to skip or pause shipments online, but you can change your address and phone number via the website.

Wine Education -

Vinley Market is a little light on educational materials, but they're not trying to help you get your Masters of Wine, after all. Each wine is accompanied by a card detailing its origins, what makes it special, how it was made, and whom it was made by. They tell you what you need to know without getting bogged down in information which distracts from enjoyment.

Giftworthiness -

Particularly for women, we LOVE Vinley Market's Bubbles & Rosé Wine Club as a gift. The packaging and branding are polished and feminine, the wines are delightful and surprising, and since it's a woman-owned business, we're always happy to support the sisterhood.
