From the wine sales partner for Wine Enthusiast magazine, this wine of the month club is a no-hassle way to try new white wine from around the world. The wine director at WineExpress, Josh Farrell, hand picks each wine for their subscriptions.
WineExpress is the retail arm of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Who better to select the best wines for a wine of the month club than a company that rates wine?
It's been a long time since we received a shipment from WineExpress, but the last ones we received we felt sent out an uninspiring selection of wine (medium- to large-production and widely available) and were priced too close to retail to be considered a good deal. We'd like to see them include previously-shipped wines on their wine club pages.
So many people prefer red wine to white wine that those of us who love white wine, too, just scratch our heads. What we know (that those silly red-wine-only drinkers don’t) is that good white wine is usually cheaper, more friendly to lighter fare, and more refreshing than red wine. Fortunately, WineExpress understands our palate and preferences and picks out nuanced white wines for an excellent value. Just pop ‘em in the fridge and enjoy!
Unlike the other wine clubs from publishing companies (NY Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Sunset Magazine, etc.) this wine club is owned by its publishing company (Wine Enthusiast Magazine). That changes all of the rules and expectations for this wine club... in the consumer’s favor.
