I’ve always been impressed by people who truly know their wines. I use words like “sweet” or “bitter” to describe the taste, but I wish to one day be considered a wine connoisseur and use fancy wine terminology like “acidity” and “brut” when describing the taste. One day I will no longer be a little novice! I plan on taking my wine knowledge to the next level. 🙂
I could find a wine school to learn all about different wines, or I could stay in my yoga pants and learn all about wines from the comfort of my home! No one is going to judge me at home if I down a slice of pizza with a clay mask on my face while sampling wines. That sounds like my type of night!
If you’re anything like me, you’ll be excited as I am about Weekly Tasting. I loved partnering up with them for this post + they’re giving a $300 Amazon gift card to one lucky reader! Weekly Tasting is the newest way to become a wine connoisseur in the comfort of your home. Each week a Sommelier from Weekly Tasting (I totally had to google Sommelier) will hand-select four wines that fit into a common theme for the weekly box (no worries, not a subscription box!) You’ll learn all about the flavors and history of the wines. I’m pumped for the Wines to Go With BBQ box because that’s all I do in the summer.
Weekly Tasting’s website has officially launched, so make sure to check it out!
With the box, you’ll receive a 10-minute tasting video! It will give you information and walk you through each bottle of wine. It honestly feels like you’re in a wine class when you’re tasting along with the video.
High-quality wine can be very pricey, but Weekly Tasting allows you to enjoy the tasty wines at affordable prices. You’ll receive a box shipped free to your house for only $69.99! That is such a good deal.
I think it would be an excellent idea to start a wine tasting group with your friends. You could all pitch in and split the box. Everyone could bring their dish that fits the theme 🙂 I may have to start that up. This is actually perfect for Bachelorette Mondays.
The theme of the Weekly Tasting box I received was “Wine to Go With Takeout Food.” That is a fun idea. The box comes with a set of tasting cards and recipe pairings to go with each wine. You’ll also receive access to a cool label recognition app. It allows you to create a personal cellar for sharing your thoughts on the bottles with your friends. This is such a cute idea if you want to start a wine club with your friends or family who live far away. Who wouldn’t want to stay connected over a glass of wine?
One of my favorite ways to enjoy wine is with a charcuterie board. I decided to bring my Weekly Tasting box over to my parents on Sunday night, so we could sample wine together before I went out of town. My parents are the first people I think of when I think of wine. You’ll never leave their house without being offered a glass, and they were so excited when I told them I was bringing over wine and a charcuterie board!
I love to include sweet bites and savory bites to go with the wine! It brings out all the flavors and clears your palate.
The red blend was my favorite! I paired it with strawberries and dark chocolate! I love the variety that comes in each box.
I really like that this isn’t a subscription club. You’ll never be given a Weekly Tasting box that you didn’t pick out. The box is for expanding your wine palette and learning about all kinds of wines. Their goal isn’t to make you fall in love with every bottle. It’s all about the education.
Laura Maniec is one of Weekly Tasting’s sommeliers. She is one of only 32 female Master Sommeliers in the world. How cool is it that? Elizabeth Schneider, another one of Weekly Tasting’s sommeliers, has spent over ten years in the wine industry. *seriously, goals* I need to check out her podcast, Wine for Normal People, where she helps people better understand their palate.
I hope you are excited to try out Weekly Tasting!
