My newest obsession seems to be subscription boxes, birchbox, glossybox, barkbox as a gift, and now best of all, Bright Cellars, a wine subscription box!! They sent me a complementary box to review for the blog! I will be the first to admit, I LOVE wine but know very little about it – besides red/white and a little about the stereotypes of each kind (from my bar-tending career).
This is where Bright Cellars comes in, it’s a company launched by two MIT graduates whose goal was to introduce “hidden gems” (non mainstream wines) to you each month, they know you will love them because they created a “quiz” which matches your taste preferences using a bright points algorithm GENIUS I know… I tell you these MIT kids think of everything!
Once you get your score they suggest wines you would like (and have never heard of) – it even tells you what specifically you may like about the wines! The best part is each month you get 4 DIFFERENT wines to try – so you are constantly being exposed to new wines. They are even working on ways to rate and customize the experience – this is where the Pandora part comes in, you love a wine, you can let them know and “request more like this” or if you don’t like it – you can do the opposite – just like when you are listening to a station on Pandora!
You can take the quiz yourself – its super quick and easy, it asks things like what is your fav juice in the morning (i picked does coffee count as a juice) and candy preferences!
Since they are at the very beginning they have a rewards programs where you can refer a friend (if you love it) and you can get bonus wines to your subscription – sometimes wildcards that are still linked with your preferences but maybe a little outside of your comfort zone!
They are even offering my readers 50% off their first month with this link so head on over to their site and take the quiz!!
