It’s Friday! I don’t know about you, but all week long I feel like I’m working for the weekend! Now that my boyfriend and I are living two hours apart, we pretty much only see each other on the weekends. It’s tough (since we were living next door before this), but we really make the most of our weekends. But, in order to do that, we work hard all week long!
I definitely don’t drink during the week, and the absolute last thing on my mind between classes, group project meetings, work and running The Lilac Press is heading to the liquor store. I don’t think about it, and it doesn’t happen. There really isn’t a need.
That being said, I do love to enjoy a glass of nice wine on the weekends with the boyfriend or some friends. Enter Winc.
With Winc, you get a monthly delivery of wine straight to your front door – completely tailored to your tastes and preferences. When you start out, the website will have you take a quiz to determine what flavors and tastes you like best. Then, the website will recommend four wines that Winc thinks you’ll like best. At that point, you can swap out different wines if desired to make your own customized delivery.
I love wine tasting, and I do know what I like, but sometimes I can be hard to pick a good one at the store based on the labels alone. I almost always purchase wine based on recommendations from friends or family, specifically my dad (the family wine guru).
For whites, I love a crisp, dry and light wine. Sauvignon Blancs and Albarinos are definitely my go-to’s.
Rosé – because, well, who doesn’t love rosé? Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. And anyone who says its a “girly” drink has obviously never enjoyed a light, dry rosé. Just ask my dad or my boyfriend. 🙂
Now that the colder, crisper weather is here, I find myself opting for reds more often. I love a full-bodied, tannic wine. There is really no better pairing for my favorite cheeses.
Whatever you’re looking for, Winc has it! And they will be sure to find what you’ll like best with the quiz. Whether you’re having girlfriends over for a wine night with cupcakes (can you tell I have a sweet tooth?) or enjoying a homecooked weekend meal with the boyfriend, Winc has the pairing for you!
Plus, what I love most about the delivery services (besides never having to step foot in the liquor store) is that I always have a few bottles on hand for gifting. A birthday that you almost missed? Gift a bottle of wine! Friend having a dinner party and you don’t have time to cook up anything special, just bring a bottle of wine!
It never hurts to start developing your own personal wine cellar anyway.
Let me know if you give Winc a try for $32 for your first 4 bottles!
Thank you to Winc and Instant Plugs for providing me with my first four bottles for this post!
