Have you ever been tempted to join a wine club? I am the very happy recip­i­ent of a wine club gift. (Thank you! You know who you are…) The last few years I’ve been able to see the ben­e­fits of being a mem­ber. The infor­ma­tion I’m going to talk about applies to the wine club I belong to, Hess. (each club will vary in ben­e­fits and policies)

  • Of course, there is the obvi­ous, get­ting spec­tac­u­lar, some­times exclu­sive wines deliv­ered to your front door.
  • You’ll receive dis­counts and spe­cial buy­ing priv­i­leges. When you go to the win­ery, you receive free tast­ings and tours for your­self and friends.
  • You also get invited to mem­ber only par­ties that can be very inter­est­ing and fun.
  • One thing I didn’t real­ize would be such an added bonus was the food and wine pair­ing education.With each ship­ment of my wine, Hess Win­ery includes a recipe that would com­pli­ment the wine. I love this perk! It has really expanded my culi­nary hori­zons. One of my favorite meals to make now is a Hess Wine Club cre­ation. It’s def­i­nitely gourmet, but easy enough to make.

As the say­ing goes, “a pic­ture is worth a thou­sand words.” Notice the plates are empty? Need I say more? Con­tinue here to find my recipe and more photos.

    It could be dan­ger­ous if I belonged to a wine club — does hav­ing a wine buf­fet in your din­ing room, wine rack in your fridge, and wine bar in the man cave count as hav­ing an ‘at home wine club’? If so then I’m defi­nately a mem­ber! Lov­ing the look of your blog and quotes … nice to meet you :)
