Wine Subscription & Serendipity

Organic Wine Subscription - Serendipity

I was sitting near the Thames with my burrito and thinking about my upcoming visit to Foyles. What should I get? I don’t know at the slightest. Something pleasant, or maybe something shocking? Is this how we get our lives so exciting and interesting - simply by stumbling upon new things and making our own judgement whether we like it or not?

Introducing our Wine Tasting At Home subscription box

Posted on August 05, 2016 by Dimitri Safonov | 0 comments

Who can deny it, we all love cozy comfort of our own home! You use your favourite wine glasses or simply being able to sample wine in the garden. Habit is a very satisfying thing.
There is nothing wrong knowing what we like. Yet is it limiting us in learning new things?
When it comes to food and drink, tasting is enabling us to discover more things we love and also identify ones we don’t. 
With our free in-store wine tasting events you can treat yourself to some fantastic samples and expert advice. But this is not the only way!

Wine Tasting Subscription Box is a convenient way how you can sample unique and interesting organic wines, learn a little bit more about a diverse world of organic wines and be confident to even host a wine party yourself. All this at home, even in your slippers!

What’s in the wine tasting box and how does it work.

Wine Tasting Subscription Box - organic wines at homeOrganic Wine Club will send you a box of three full sized bottles of organic wine that are grouped by a theme: think of three different Sauvignon Blanc wines, three different reds from south of Spain or even three natural wines.
Your first box will come also with a ‘Recommendations to Wine Tasting At Home’ booklet, which was written and designed by us specifically to boost your confidence in wine tasting. We will add a gift to your first box - 'Vacu Vin' set (vacuum pump and two stoppers so you can preserve the wine and then taste or drink it later, up to a week or two though).
Each box will also come with a more specific guide to the actual wines - an introduction to these three organic wines and additional information so you are in the know what you are going to try. 

Taste organic wines. Host a wine party. Buy as a wine gift.

Wine Tasting at Home Kit - subscribe for organic winesYou can then sample the wines, host a wine tasting party and sample with friends - simply enjoy this experience! You will find some wine descriptors and tips in our brochure if you need to refer to it for some help.

We will also include a sealed envelope with our own tasting notes for those wines - we will leave it up to you whether to open it to see what we’ve thought about the wines, or not at all. Imagine the fun you can have teasing your friends to name all the flavours! There is no right or wrong - taste is so personal!
As you can see, it is fun, informal and informative too. All the wines in the box are organic, so you are getting healthier wines, made with love and care by artisan wineries and hand picked by us in store.

Let’s sample new, different and sometimes surprising organic wines, learn more about them and appreciate different aromas and flavours.

How much organic wine tasting at home subscription costs?


Each box costs £50 plus postage and you can modify your subscription at any time by logging in to your account or contacting Organic Wine Club.

We pack our boxes on or after 15th of each month to ensure that they are shipped to our subscribers by 20th - get yours now! Cheers

Meet David, our first Organic Wine Club member

Posted on July 03, 2016 by Dimitri Safonov | 0 comments

We were so chuffed to being able to sell a case of 12 classic organic wines (mixed) to David L. on the first day of trading online! Afterwards, we've contacted them to ask a few questions and here is what our customers told us.

How would you describe your wine-buying habits up to now?

Chaotic, in a word. My partner and I both work in London, our jobs devour every waking hour and The Tube seems to steal whatever time is left. Consequently our wine buying is impulsive (either a lunch time dash or on the way home), rushed and incredibly inefficient. First impressions for us are everything - If it looks good it goes into the shopping basket!

What initially attracted you to a wine club?

Both of us recognise that we need help! We have both, independently, asked around and done some research on wine clubs. They seem tailor-made for our situation. Suddenly we have structure to our wine-buying lives. We both ‘get’ the premise that you need to buy by the case. It makes sense. Instead of countless individual purchases every month, buying through a club means we go through the whole process just once. Best of all, these clubs deliver to your door. Having spent the week working and commuting, the weekend offers a chance to relax. Neither of us want to get in a car, especially in London, and spend hours stuck in traffic.

What attracted you to the Organic Wine Club?

Initially, it was for health reasons. We both like to keep fit, squeezing in a jog round the block most mornings and getting on the bikes at weekends. At the same time we enjoy a glass of wine and invariably our friends are involved!

The quality of wine consumed varies hugely. Both of us know that you get what you pay for and that quality is closely linked to how a wine is made. The average bottle of wine, we realise, is full of additives and, like many people, we are concerned what these may be doing to our health.

My partner was recently alerted to the benefits of organic wine by one of her book club (funnily enough over a glass of organic wine), and pillow talk that night consisted of an in-depth explanation of organic and biodynamic wines: their lack of pesticides in the vineyard, the omission of sulphur in the bottle, and so on!

  I was startled to learn how global is the organic movement, how established it is, yet how much bad press these wines get. Organic wines, we thought, often taste nasty because they are unstable. Stability, goes the mantra, comes from these added chemicals. Neither of us know enough to tell the difference but we would like to find out more and judge for ourselves. Unfortunately, finding a decent selection of organic wines has, until now, been quite challenging.

We think Organic Wine Club will change all that for many.

What were your initial impressions of the Organic Wine Club?

Very positive. Life has been hectic recently, so we have not been able to take advantage of the various options to try before you buy that the club offers. If a window of opportunity opens up in our lives we are keen to join one of your informal in-store tastings. Fortunately their website, https://organicwineclub.co.uk, gave us various options to buy.

Different pre-mixed cases are available on their Club page. As, newbies to organic wine should have been a bit more modest, but no, we went for Classic mixed case. We were then amazed to discover we had become members! How easy is that? This was shopping at its most painless. We ordered at the click of a mouse, got on with our lives and waited for you to deliver to our door.

How do you think you have benefited from your club membership?

As we are so new to this wine club it is yet to be seen in full. Yet I can see a few benefits. Getting 10% on every case we buy, mixed or unmixed, is a good start.

What has really grabbed our attention is something quite different. Both of us travel a lot with the same airline and are used to being rewarded with airmiles. We are not, on the other hand, used to being rewarded with points for every £1 we spend on a bottle of wine. Such a simple idea and so effortless. After all, we are going to buy wine anyway, so this is a bonus. We have recently introduced a couple of friends to the club and been rewarded with even more points (500 per friend).

I remember as a kid my dad collecting green shield stamps. Then one day, armed with a stack of completed coupon books, he would redeem them for a lawnmower or some more engine oil! This is even better - you redeem the points for more wine. We will build up a useful little pot of points and then the fun part will come - redeeming all those points.

icon Comments from our staff: our loyalty programme is called Wine Drops, make sure you register an account and start referring. You can then get a very nice discount on your own wine when you decide to shop.

Is there anything else about our Organic Wine Club that interests you?

Yes, your offer to come to our house and give a tutored tasting is a great idea. Both of us are keen to learn more about organic wines and who better to inform us than the professionals? We could then progress to one of your wine education courses. I can think of quite a few of our friends who would be interested. I might even persuade my brother-in-law, a busy city professional who is cash rich but time poor, to join us. He knows a lot about derivatives but less than he thinks about wine!

So what would be your advice to those who haven’t yet tried organic wine?

Have an open mind and try them. Many of us like to push the boundaries so why not adopt that same adventurous spirit when we choose wine to drink? The Organic Wine Club is a good place to start.

iconComments from us: We are so grateful for our customer's willingness to share. A few steps you can take just now towards a better wine shopping: sign up for our newsletter and get a Free Delivery voucher; register an account and start referring friends. You will get a bonus from us as well (200 points for creating an account). Exchange that all for wine! Cheers
