Virgin Wines has introduced a new wine club that “Rocks”.
It's not a monthly wine club, sending a couple bottles of wine each month. Instead, it's a quarterly case wine club, sending a full case of wine every three months for a reasonable price.
And, it's not a normal “boring” wine club (their words). Instead, it's a “party in a box” (my words). The wines, the packaging, the messaging — and the entire experience is music themed and super fun!
Their new wine club is called “Wine and Music Experience”, and it's perfectly named.
Review of the Wine and Music Experience from Virgin Wines
Not only are the wines music themed / music inspired, but the entire packaging is cool — and they even match music to the shipment with their Spotify Channel. (Seriously, as I write this review, I'm listening to their Rolling Stones Mix.)
In fact, the first thing you see in the box is this really nice, high production value “Rock & Roll Poster”.
It looks really good and gives me a sense that I'm really gonna like this!
And on the backside, you get an overview of what you're receiving with The Virgin Wine and Music Experience Club — and how it all works. It's pretty slick. I enjoyed going through this stuff very much.
And check this out: They literally pair each wine with music. (Now that's unique!)
The idea here, is that you'll open one of the bottles of wines and listen to the perfectly paired music to accompany the bottle, while you enjoy the wine.
It really adds a whole new layer to this wine delivery. I don't know who came up with this idea, but I'm a fan.
I've been reviewing Wine Clubs with Eric and Tricia for several years now, and I have not seen this before!
I gotta say — this is pretty slick.
…I'm totally picturing an evening of fun-filled music-themed wines being enjoyed over the laughter of my friends as we toast each other with each of the bottles of wine — while listening to their “paired music”, blaring from the Alexa Echo I received for Christmas this year… 🙂
(Update: Here's a direct link to open spotify and listen to this Rolling Stones playlist right now! Eric wanted to listen to it, so I thought I'd keep the link published here for easy access for us in the future — or anyone who wants to rock out with us.)
Our Review of the Wine & Music Experience Wine Club from Virgin Wines. See our Delivery!
I received a delivery to review their club recently and I took a ton of photos and am sharing my review and what I've learned about this club below.
This is a new club that is really fun and, in my opinion, really hits the nail on the head with the overall experience.
Seriously, how often do you open a heavy box filled with good wine — and the first thing you see is a “Rock Star-like” full color poster featuring wine bottles with cool labels for KISS, The Police and The Rolling Stones??? (Yeah, I'm a product of the 70's)
It's very reasonably priced at around $150 for 12 bottles of good wine. Add $20 for shipping, unless you're a member of their Free Shipping program for $89 a year.
It's a great gift — and equally fun as a gift for yourself.
They have a special deal going right now for the Virgin Wines “Wine and Music Experience Wine Club”. It's a great offer, in my opinion. Your first case of wine for $79 and FREE SHIPPING.
You can't pass that up, right? That's over $179 of wine value at a $100 discount.

To become a member, or not become a member? That is the question.
As an ongoing member, you'll get a shipment each quarter, plus a summer time shipment and a holiday shipment — you know, for those special times when you need more good wine on hand!
We fully recommend maintaining your membership — but we know many people get nervous about “memberships”, so we wanted to be sure you know that you have options.
Now, you don't have to commit to a club membership with them to get great wine at a great price, but when you order, you are officially agreeing to accept future deliveries — but cancelling is simple and instant — so you can enjoy the benefits of the membership without having to worry about being locked in.
Seriously: Cancelling Membership and reaching Customer Service is simple.
They don't hide their phone number or surprise you in any way.
In fact THEY GIVE YOU THE PHONE NUMBER FOR CANCELLING ON THE ORDER FORM.
…now that's upfront and makes it very easy. (They don't make you feel bad for cancelling, either. )
So, if you choose a single delivery as a gift or if you just want to try it for yourself, you're in luck. They are very happy to sell you this single delivery. (Just call and cancel sometime after you receive the first shipment.) However, if you do join their club, you'll know you're getting good wines automatically shipped out to you throughout the year — and for an additional $89 a year, ALL YOUR CASE DELIVERIES ARE FREE.
Yep. They have a “Free Shipping Program”.
Just like our love for amazon prime and the free shipping that results — Virgin Wines has a similar program for this Wine and Music Experience Club. Meaning, for a single $89 fee, you've pre-paid for all the case deliveries you get through the year. (Normal shipping is $20 for a full case of wine to be safely transported and delivered to your door. Or, it's free with their annual membership.)
My delivery of the Wine and Music Experience from Virgin Wines.
I received a shipment from Virgin Wines for this review. They sent me a mixed case, so I had both red wine and white wine in my delivery.
The box was rather heavy, as you'd expect a full 12 bottles of wine to weigh. And, of course, I had to be home to sign for the delivery since it was alcohol. (Many people ship to their work address to overcome that issue.)
The box had Virgin Wines branding and messaging on the outside, so I knew what was in the box.
When I opened the top of the box, the very first thing I saw was this great looking full-color, 2-sided Rock Star Poster that really sets the tone for this wine club.
Also, there was a pack of tasting cards, one per wine that discusses the wine, the wine maker, food pairings, etc.
(NOTE: Those were not easy to spot. They give you a sealed plastic packet filled with tasting note cards and a custom welcome message, along with specific ordering instructions for re-ordering particular bottles, etc. However, this little packet slid along the side of the bottles. I wonder if I hadn't known to look for it, if someone else would have noticed it quickly or not…)
However, one important part of the delivery doesn't come inside the box. It's the music. You go to their website and they have a playlist setup for each wine. It's pretty slick and adds a whole unique element to this wine club.
Here are some photos of my delivery.
I'm really impressed with how this wine club makes me feel. It's like a party in a box, and I really can't wait to show my friends these wines! You get 12 bottles with each delivery for a very reasonable price. In summary: Get it for yourself and get one as a gift.
- Great unique wines
- Full case per delivery
- Great looking messaging
- Music themed packaging
- Don't love the wine? You get your money back.
