Wine Types and Quality
Wine.com is the largest wine shop in the world, with an inventory of over 50,000 wines from 8,000 wineries, so Picked members have plenty to choose from. While the maximum price cap of $45 per bottle means that premium wines aren’t included in Picked selections, the quality is nevertheless excellent.
They offer a comprehensive variety of red and white wines from vineyards across the world, including the United States, France, Italy, Spain, and Australia, as well as more unusual growing regions such as Uruguay, Israel, and the United Kingdom. Wines available include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Albarino, Merlot, and Burgundy, among many others.
The price range is $15-$45 per bottle, and you select your target amount in your preferences. Deliveries can be made monthly or every two or three months. All deliveries contain six bottles, and you determine the number of reds or whites included. All your preferences can be updated at any time.
You’ll receive a notification seven days before your next shipment is due to go out so that you can adjust your preferences or snooze your subscription. There’s no minimum period before you can cancel your subscription—the process is straightforward and can be done at any time.
The cost of your boxes will vary slightly as it will reflect the true cost of the wines included. However, Picked by Wine.com guarantees that the price won’t differ from the target amount by more than $10. So, for example, if you choose the $20 per bottle option, Wine.com will send you bottles worth between $15 and $25. The target total for the shipment would be $120. This means that the actual cost will be between $110 and $130.
If you choose a mixed selection of red and white wines, you can choose a different price per bottle for red and white—a feature we found particularly helpful.
