The brilliance of wine clubs are something that came into their own in lockdown, and the trend isn’t slowing down any time soon. Providing us all with exciting libations direct to our doors, these clubs have changed how we drink wine, encouraging us to try new styles and grape varieties while learning more about them. 

Decanter, Europe’s wine authority, is raising the bar and launching a wine club here in the US, providing unrivalled expertise and unique bottles you won’t easily find elsewhere. Partnering with Wine Access, they’re offering two subscriptions of six distinctive bottles every quarter, each a curation of Decanter’s top-scoring wines. 

“Each shipment has been designed to offer a diverse and fascinating range of both old and new world wines in varying styles,” says Editor-in-Chief of Decanter, Chris Maillard. “Every bottle has come through our rigorously independent tasting process and earned a top score from our panel of highly respected judges.” 

Excellent quality is guaranteed with this wine subscription, knowing they’ve wowed Decanter’s experts and earned some impressive scores in the process. Inside each box is a booklet with a comprehensive background on the wines, tasting notes and Decanter scores to boot. 

In this month’s premium subscription, Rare Luxuries, there are some impressive collectibles including a 97 point 2011 La Rioja Alta and a 98 point 2008 Billecart-Salmon rosé brut champagne. In the Everyday Excellence offering there’s a 94 point non-vintage Jansz Cuvée Brut as well as a 94 point 2019 Babylonstoren Shiraz.

It’s safe to say we’ll be armed with a newfound confidence to tackle the wine list at restaurants and boast a broader range of wine knowledge we didn’t have before thanks to this subscription.
