Winc Box

winc-box-review

Winc is a wine of the month club that delivers you hand-selected wines based on your tastes. Each month, you’ll receive a box of four hand-selected wines from their vineyards. All of the wines available are moderately priced, and almost all the wine available costs between $13-20 a bottle. The first sentence should start with the main keyword and describe the box. Orders from the club ship within two business days of your order and your next box will ship on the anniversary date of your order each month.

Pricing & What’s Included

When it comes to pricing, the cost of each box varies from person to person, and it can also vary from month to month. Almost all of the wines available on the site cost between $13-20 per bottle. The most expensive bottle is $35.

Each month, the team at Winc selects four bottles of wine for you based on the results of your personal taste quiz. You can choose from any configuration of red and white wine you like. Members also have the option of choosing the wines they want each month instead of relying on their team to ship you things they think you’ll like. If you don’t specify the wines you’d like each month, they’ll select them for you.

Other Options

In addition to their subscription service, anybody can shop their website for the wines they sell. The cost of the wine is the same, with most bottles falling into the $13-20 range, with a few more expensive outliers available.

The minimum order is three bottles and shipping is $9. Meanwhile, a club membership includes four bottles each month and shipping is free. Considering that the wine is affordable, it certainly pays to be a member and enjoy free shipping on all your orders. However, if you’re on the fence about joining the club, or you don’t want to receive a monthly shipment, this option may be a better fit for you.

Winc Review

Currently, there isn’t much in the way of reliable reviews for the service. We’re always scouring the internet for new reviews, so you’ll want to check back on this section regularly for updates.

Of the few reviews, we were able to find, most of them provide neutral feedback of the service. They have a Trustpilot trust score of 6.1/10.

It seems that any negative feedback Winc has received is a result of miscommunication. Some reviewers didn’t realize how the service worked and were surprised to find that they were receiving a new delivery of wine each month.

This seems strange since they make it very clear that this is a recurring monthly subscription service. So, you may want to take the reviews you find with a grain of salt.

It seems like the best way to decide if this club is right for you is to give them a try yourself, and see how you like their service.

When Does It Ship? 

Each month, your order will ship on the anniversary date of your first order. So, if your first order was on the 15th of the month, your order will ship on or around the 15th of every month.

Shipping for club members is free. If you’re placing an order outside of a club membership, shipping is $9.

Since we’re dealing in alcohol here, there are certain restrictions regarding deliveries. Keep in mind that your box can’t be released by the shipping carrier without the signature of someone over the age of 21. For this reason, many club members choose to have their delivery sent to their office, or to a FedEx pickup location.

It’s also worth noting that certain states prohibit the shipment of alcohol direct to residences. Beyond that, there are also certain counties that are dry or have other laws that regulate the shipment of alcohol. Chances are, this isn’t something you need to worry about. But, you’ll want to be sure to double check if you’re able to have wine delivered to you. You can learn more about where you can and can not have wine shipped on the site’s FAQ section.

Customer Service Information

When it comes to customer service, this company makes sure that it’s as easy as possible to reach them. Here’s a list of different contact methods.

How Do I Cancel? 

To cancel your subscription, you’ll need to contact the customer service department through any of the methods above. You can also skip a month any time you’d like by following the steps below:

  • Log in to your account
  • Select ‘My Membership’
  • Choose ‘Skip A Month’

You can cancel your membership, or skip a month up to 48 hours before your next scheduled billing date. If it’s less than 48 hours before your next billing date and you’d still like to cancel, contact the customer service department. They may still be able to find a solution for you.

Company History

The story of Winc is an interesting one. In 2012, Club W was created by Xander Oxman and Geoff McFarlane. Their goal was to make wine more accessible by making it easier to get, and more fun to enjoy. At the time, their wine club functioned as a sort of online marketplace for wine. Since then, the company has evolved quite a bit.

Xander and Geoff then partnered with sommelier and vintner Brian Smith to realize their vision. In 2016, the club was rebranded into the form you see today. Unlike some other clubs which curate different wines from all over the world, Xander, Geoff and Brian instead created their own vineyard. All of the wines available are made by the club. They are also available at select restaurants and retailers throughout the US. This model has enabled them to provide quality wines at affordable prices.  

It appears that Xander, Geoff, and Brian are on to something with their new business model. To date, Winc has raised over 30 million dollars in funding, and the company has demonstrated consistent growth.
