Review of Explorers Club

Pay just $5.84 a bottle
Virgin Wines, a service partnered with Richard Branson's Virgin America, offers an Explorers Club as their only wine club, although it's available with three options (Mixed, Reds, or Whites)

Wines are selected based on time of the year, which is nice when you want a lighter and crisper wine in the hot summer months, compared to a full bodied wine in the winter.

You can choose between their mixed case, case of reds, or case of white wines.

Mixed Case

When you're looking for the biggest variety, look at a mixed case. You'll receive reds and whites, such as a Côtes du Rhône, a California Cabernet, a Riesling from Washington or a fresh Italian Pinot Grigio.

All Reds

Like that tannin bite? Enjoy a Argentinian Malbec or a delicious Pinot Noir or a delicious red blend of Australian Cabernet and Shiraz.

All Whites

White wines are known to be sweeter and lighter, with more of a citrus flavor than their red cousins, but still equally delicious! If you're a fan of chardonnay, Sauvignon (hold the Cabernet) or the other Pinot (Pinot Grigio), the white case is just what you need.
