National Give a Wine Club Day falls on December 15, 2017, and celebrates gifting wine clubs over all else to those 21+ to support agriculture and the art of winemaking. Wine clubs give the recipient flexibility to try new wines, order their favorites, or get limited vintages before the general public. Often customizable via different tiers – you pick the type of club/wines included, the number of bottles, shipping preferences and frequency, and more – there is a type of wine club for every palate and budget. In this post, we explore Wine Club offerings at Connecticut wineries.
