HOW DO I JOIN WEEKLY TASTING?

Sign up for a Weekly Tasting account here. Since we are not a wine club, there are no membership fees or hidden costs. This opt-in process allows you to have full control of all the wines you desire. You can have only one account per email address.

 

WHAT IS WEEKLY TASTING?

Weekly Tasting is a great way to explore wine without the risk of a poor quality bottle. Each week, we feature a wine tasting selected by our industry experts. We focus on finding the perfect wine for you! Variety, quality, and balance are of utmost importance to us. We offer high-quality wines from all over the world. Each and every wine in our Weekly Tasting sets have been carefully selected. Our wine experts taste hundreds of wines and select only the very best - ensuring each Tasting has their sip of approval!

 

WHAT YOU GET WITH EACH TASTING EXPERIENCE?

Each wine tasting comes with full-sized bottles that are handpicked by highly respected wine experts. Your tasting experience will include a guided video highlighting each wine profile and suggested food pairings, complete with social sharing capabilities. Each tasting will include different wines and may include a mix of varietals or regions.

 

WHO ARE THESE EXPERTS?

Here is a quick overview of our Sommeliers. For more information, visit the Experts page.

Elizabeth Schneider:

Elizabeth is best known for her podcast Wine for Normal People, where she turns the often overwhelming world of wine into an easily understood (and amusing!) experience. After working in high tech, getting her MBA from UNC-Chapel Hill, and slugging away as a marketer for a huge winery in California, Elizabeth decided to abandon the corporate world and follow her passion of helping normal people who like wine to learn more about it through her podcast, live and online seminars, and her upcoming book, Wine For Normal People. She is both a Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers and a Certified Specialist of Wine.


Laura Maniec:

Laura Maniec began her career in wine at age 21 as a Sommelier charged with running the wine and spirits program for BR Guest, where she worked for 10 years in various positions across the country. By 29, Laura became one of only 32 women in the world to pass her Master Sommelier Exam. Two years later, Laura started Corkbuzz with the goal of making wine approachable and fun, while keeping the spirit of always learning and exploring.
 


Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan Master of Wine:

Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan started her career in finance, but after one fateful business lunch, she decided to take the plunge into the world of wine. Jennifer now holds the top wine title in the world as a Master of Wine - the fourth woman of only 47 people in the US to achieve such a highly coveted international title. She has been honored with an international tasting trophy for her palate and awarded five other Wine & Spirit certifications. Additionally, Simonetti-Bryan has trained thousands of professionals in the industry, judged international wine and spirits competitions, has been featured in world-class publications and is a frequent guest on national television programs such as NBC’s Today Show, Fox News, and many more.

CAN I BE NOTIFIED OF A CERTAIN WINE OR VARIETAL?

We do not separate our wine notifications based on varietal or any other specification. We change our featured wine tasting every Monday. You will be notified via email of each new pack or if you download the Weekly Tasting App you can also receive notifications to your phone.

 

CAN I ORDER ONE BOTTLE?

Unfortunately, our packs are designed to go together. To experience the pack in the way we intend we must keep the pack as it is advertised. If you purchase the pack and favorite a wine in your cellar, you may receive a notification if that wine becomes available again.

 

WHY AM I NOT RECEIVING YOUR EMAILS?

Don't panic - this could be for a number of reasons. Please contact the Customer Service team, and we will investigate this issue with our IT department.

 

WHAT IF I DO NOT WANT TO RECEIVE EMAILS?

If you choose not to receive emails but want to order wine, you can go to your account anytime and manage your notification options.
