Vinley Market Review

Monthly Wine Box Review

WINE CLUB OVERVIEW & DETAILS

All-Around Wine Club Rating: 4.2

Summary

Vinley Market is interested in the way younger people drink wine. They focus on mid-level wines ($20-30 per bottle) that overdeliver and on highly-curated, adventurous wine drinking.

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.

Monthly Wine Box Review

Please note: We have not yet received a shipment of the Monthly Wine Box from Vinley Market. We have received and reviewed their Bubbles & Rosé Wine Club. The company-related content that is applicable is shown here.

Overview of Monthly Wine Box

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.

Monthly Wine Box 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 Monthly Wine Box 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.""

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.

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.

Quality of Wine -

We found the quality of the wine we received from Vinley Market to be very good, but we have not recieved red or white wine from them, only sparkling and rosé.

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.

Uniqueness of the Wine Club -

At this time, we have no reason to believe the Monthly Wine Box from Vinley Market is especially unique.

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.

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 Monthly Wine Box as a gift. The packaging and branding are polished and feminine, the wines [from the Bubbles & Rosé Wine Club] are delightful and surprising, and since it's a woman-owned business, we're always happy to support the sisterhood.
