There’s little better than enjoying a glass (or two) of wine on a Friday night to wind down after a busy week. But if you’re bored of buying the same supermarket Sauvignon, broaden your wine knowledge with a monthly subscription instead. Each month, Your Sommelier will take you on a wine tasting tour, with carefully selected wines you’ll love delivered straight to your door. Here’s how it works…
What is Your Sommelier?
An online wine retailer specialising in regional French wines at affordable prices. From Alsace and Bordeaux to Champagne and the Loire Valley, each bottle is sourced directly from French vineyards, so the wines you get are hand-picked by experts and full of distinct flavours.
How does it work?
You simply sign up for FREE with your email address to become a member. Each member then receives exclusive weekly offers on an extensive selection of French wines and Champagnes, sourced directly from the producers – simply pick the bottles you want and they’ll be delivered straight to your door. No more popping out on a Saturday to pick up a supermarket bottle of plonk.
Who should sign up?
If you’re a wine enthusiast, you’ll want to get involved – these wines are unique and rare to the UK, so there’s an element of exclusivity for those who really want to push the boat out for their next dinner party.
And what about the subscription?
If you prefer to experiment, Your Sommelier offers a monthly wine subscription to help you discover new gems broaden your knowledge when it comes to picking French wines. Each month, subscribers receive three bottles of carefully selected French wine. You can choose either the Amateur Box for £36 a month or it's £60 a month for the Expert Box.
What do you get?
As well as three carefully chosen wines – the first box includes three bottles of Bordeaux, red and white wine – you’ll also receive a set of accompanying tasting cards with information on each wine, a summary of how they’re made as well as a handy binder to collect them all. The subscription carries on as long as you want, and can be cancelled or re-activated at any time.
You can buy a subscription as a gift with a set duration of either one, two or six months, and each subscriber receives a 20% discount when re-ordering the wines they liked. Now all that’s left is to clear some space in your kitchen to build your fancy collection of French vintages…
