Wait, wait ... don't tell me! Yes, there's a new wine delivery club on the block! Just in time for the holiday season, media favorite NPR has released some amazing picks from around the globe. Ever wonder what the backstory is behind your favorite bottle of red? They'll share the inside stories of each bottle and send you a few free bottles, too!
When you head to the grocery store, sometimes you want a bottle of whatever is on sale and other times you want to know all about the vineyard it came from, what the weather was like when the grapes were picked, and the family who farmed them. This club is a great combination of both.
NPR has put together a great way to support its programming with the bonus of getting some adult beverages on the side. Meet NPR Wine! There are several options: You can purchase specific bottles from their website or opt for the subscription service (best value), where 12 different bottles are delivered three times a year.
Each bottle comes with a story, history, and all the information you need to understand that selection. They want you to get to know the communities, families, and culture that brought each one to your door. Each time an order is set to ship, you'll have the choice of what comes your way. Score! That way you get exactly what you want to discover and sample without any whammies in the lot.
So what's it cost? The first time you join you'll receive 12 bottles for $79.99, along with three additional NPR exclusive labels, which all together comes out to be around $5 a bottle. Make sure to read the fine print because although they do deliver around the 50 states, some accrue higher shipping charges or selection choices.
