The Benefits and Drawbacks of Monthly Wine Clubs
Why should you join a wine club? Are there really any benefits to joining a subscription wine club? You might have heard about a wine club recently and you are wondering if this is something that you can consider or not.
The moment that you know more about the pros and cons, you will understand better if this is something that you can consider or not. These are a couple of pros and cons of subscription wine clubs.
Pros: You might be able to purchase wine before the public can
Something that you might not have known. Because of the connections that the wine club might have, you will be able to purchase wine before the public can. Meaning that in your wine collection there will be a wine that your friends might not have yet. Or, you can get really great deals on one of a kind wine collection. Many wine clubs offer their own exclusive wines to suit the tastes of everyone, including red wine clubs, sweet wine clubs, natural (organic) wines, sparkling wines and more.
Just think how great it will be to have wine in your collection that others not have yet.
Cons: Shipping charges might be added when purchasing your wine
Depending on the deal that your wine club could make, you might need to pay shipping charges when you are ordering your wine. This can lead to you paying more for the wine than what you thought you are going to pay.
You might be able to pay less if you are paying the same wine locally. Just because of the shipping charges. So, this is something that you should consider.
Pros: You will be able to taste wines before you purchase it
We don’t always have the opportunity to taste the wine before we are purchasing it. Especially wine that we don’t know. This means that there might be wine out there that might be the most delicious wine out there, without you knowing it.
With the wine clubs, you will be able to taste the wine. And, then you can purchase the wine. Meaning that you will be able to taste new wines before you can purchase it.
Cons: You need to pay subscription services to join a wine club
One of the negative things that you need to consider, is that you should pay a subscription service to join a wine club. Meaning that you will need to spend money in order for you to be able to get discounts on wine and to enjoy other wine specials. Is this really worth it to spend money in order for you to save money?
Pros: Great way to meet new people
So many of us are just going to work, and going home. There isn’t a social life anymore. When you are subscribed to a wine club, you will be able to meet new people and get out of your home for the wine club meetings.
This means that with every meeting, once a month, or even twice a month, you will be able to get out of your home, and your normal routine, and just go out enjoying yourself. And, you might meet new people that have joined the club since you have been to a meeting.
With these pros and cons, it will make it easier for you to decide if this is something that you can consider doing. For some people, the pros and advantages will be a lot more. While with other people the cons and negative things will be more. So, you should decide this for yourself. When you are comparing the pros against the cons. Which one is more for you? And, will you benefit from a subscription wine club or not?
