New California “Simply Red” Wine Club – Budget Stretcher for Red Wine Lovers.
Last week, I received my first shipment of this red-wine only club — and it looks great.
We're still working on our full review of the Simply Red Wine Club, but here's a quick summary.
- Red wine only.
- Same delicious red wines as those selected for their popular Premier Series.
- Same affordable price as found in their Premier Series.
- Every other month deliveries (not monthly).
- No fixed-term option. (Simply cancel at anytime.)
- Satisfaction guarantee (like all of their clubs.)
I really need to complete the full review of the club so I can open up the bottles and really begin enjoying the delivery!
I'd like to point out a couple of things about this club. Beyond the fact that there is no white-wine options (since it's exclusively red wine only), I like the delivery frequency. Instead of once a month like most clubs, this Simply Red club is delivered every other month, by default. (You can reduce the frequency to once a quarter if you'd like.) By delivering the wine club every other month, I'm able to space out my purchases — thus, extend my budget.
Another key thing about this club is that the selections come from their super-popular Premier Series wine club. We already know that their Premier Series is keeping thousands of customers very happy every month. So, we can easily surmise that this Simply Red club will be equally as appealing.
I should be a bit more clear about the selections of the wines in this Simply Red club, vs the Premier Series. In the Premier Series, you can choose Red Only (two reds) or Red and White (one red, one white). If you choose the “red only” option within their Premier Series, you'll end up with two bottles of the same delicious red wine. However, if you purchase the new Simply Red club, you'll get two different bottles of red wines: one bottle from last month's selection, and one bottle from this month's selection. It's freakin' genius.
And, the price is the exact same as their Premier Series!
So, everything that you love about their ultra-popular Premiere Series is found here in their Simply Red wine club, with the exception of (1) white wine and (2) monthly shipments.
I'm a big fan of this club! (But I should note, that I'm also a big fan of their monthly deliveries of the “red only option” of their Premier Series.) So, personally, I'm torn: I love the wines in this club, but I want to get them more often (and pay more, as a result) via monthly deliveries of their Premier Series. However, if you're on a budget, you simply can't go wrong with the budget-stretching deliveries of Simply Red.
Final recommendation: This is a great club for a California red wine lover, who wants to stretch their budget by getting deliveries every other month.
