I’m baaaaccck! Have you missed me? I’ve missed you! I figured there’s no better way to write my way back into your lives than to talk about wine!
Today, I picked up my 12th box of wines curated by Gary Varynerchuk. In October 2017, GaryVee kicked off his Monthly Wine Club and I’m am so happy that he did. At first, I was hesitant. Did I really want to subscribe for $55 a month just to have wine sent to me? Would I like the selections he made?
The answers are absolutely and mostly yes. Today, I can tell you it was the best decision I ever made. Every month, a box of 1-4 wines is shipped right to my front door (well, kind of*). The box comes with a fact sheetMembers also get access to a tasting video where Gary explains his selections and his opinions of the wines.
Out of 34 wines, there are only 2 I didn’t like at all.
What I love the most is the opportunity this gives me to try wines I never would have otherwise. Not only is GaryVee helping me expand my palate, but he is also helping me build a collection. This June we received a Barolo that is the first wine I will be holding onto a few years before enjoying.
Here are all the wines we’ve received this year. I am very excited to see what they will surprise us with over the next year.

* I highly recommend having your box sent to a nearby location for pickup. Unless of course, you can sit at home all day waiting to see if it will be delivered in the “estimated” timeframe.
