The Wine List - Review

Have you ever wanted to learn a lot more about wine?

With the online delivery service from The Wine List that sends two bottles a month straight to your door.

Soon you'll know the difference between malbec and malbec, impressive ah?

The Wine List Delivery two bottles of wine

Keep reading to find out more and for a special reader discount code to get 30% OFF of your first order. 🍷

With a bottle of red and a bottle of white every month, boxed up along with a card for each bottle so you can learn about each wine.

The winemaker's story, local and UK food pairing, the grape, region and climate along with a little bit of trivia.

I really like that each card has a note at the top suggesting if you like that particular wine which grape variety etc you can look out for in the supermarket.

Your first delivery includes:

  • An introduction to wine tasting.
  • Your first two wines worth £16 each. 
  • Interactive tasting cards
  • Your learning plan for the next 12 months. 

Excellent Packaging

The two bottles of wine couldn't have been any better packed.

The Wine List Packaging

The Wine List is fully flexible 

That means there's no minimum contract, and you can cancel or skip deliveries at any time.

You own control of your account, all you do is log into your account button, so there's no awkward phone call to make, you don't have to have every box.

I love that because I for one would definitely be put off signing up if it meant you were tied.

Okay, I know £39 a month may sound expensive, I suppose you have to remember that you are getting a lesson on each wine plus as I said before, you'll soon know a malbec from a merlot!

Plus none of the wines you are sent will be available in a supermarket.

The cards that are included have tasting notes for you to fill in. For example, Characteristics, Aroma profile and a space for your notes.

Working out what a wine smells or tastes like is hard. In fact, it's commonly cited as one of the hardest things to describe.

The tasting cards are designed to help you find the words you're looking for. Whether you're trying to judge how acidic a wine is or find the right stone fruit taste to describe it.

When will I get my delivery?

For your first order, if you make your order before the 20th, they will ship within one business day and ship via DPD 24 hour.

If you order on or after the 20th, your shipment becomes part of the next month's delivery. And you will get it within a few days of the 30th.

For subsequent orders

Rebilling happens on the 30th of each month. They then ship within 1-2 business days of this date, via DPD 24 hour.
