Vinesse Review

In a Nutshell

For the past 2 decades, Vinesse has helped members find interesting, delicious boutique wines at prices they’d be hard-pressed to find at the local store. The wines are highly-rated and with Vinesse there’s a very easy to understand pricing breakdown, and you have the flexibility to delay or skip shipments at any time. And while the selection isn’t as expansive as some places, there’s a satisfaction guarantee to make sure you keep coming back.

Wine Types and Quality

Vinesse offers a wide range of hand-selected artisan wines from around the world. You can always decide for yourself whether or not the wines will be red, white, or a mix of the 2. 

Membership Options

Vinesse doesn’t have a wide variety of membership options, but they do keep things simple. The company calls its wine club “American Cellars Wine Club” and after your first order of 8 bottles for $39.98 (shipping included), you will automatically get a shipment of 6 bottles per month for $96, plus $25 for shipping, and any state taxes or other charges. You can easily make your shipments only once every 2 or 3 months and delay them altogether for 6 months at a time. You can use the “preview mode” in order to see what wines will be in your next shipment. And there’s always the satisfaction guarantee in case you don’t like the wine you get. 

Pricing

Signing up for Vinesse is easy. When you join, you’ll be asked if you’d like reds, whites, or a mix, as well as your personal details. After the first shipment, each month you’ll get a box of 6 wines at $16 per bottle, plus shipping. 

If you aren’t happy with any of the wine, you can make use of the company’s satisfaction guarantee. The company also gives you some flexibility about when and where you receive your bottles.

This right here is a powerful, full-bodied pinot rich with well-balanced fruit flavors and deep aromas.

Giving the Gift of Wine

If you’d like to give wine as a gift, you can easily purchase plans for somebody else through the Vinesse website. On the website you can sign up for a 3-, 4-, 6-, 8-, or 12-bottle plan, and select either 1, 3, 6, or 12 shipments. This could be more expensive than the regular plan. For instance, ordering 1 shipment of 6 bottles is quoted at $115, without shipping.    

Customer Service

Vinesse has a support email, which will probably be your go-to solution if you have any problems. It’s worth noting though, that 2 queries sent to this address were only answered a day later, and did not answer all of the questions. You can also try to reach the company by online chat or social media. Also, the company website doesn’t provide enough information about the wine club or the wines offered, so you may find yourself needing some help more than you would with other companies. 

Bottom Line

Vinesse is an easy way for wine novices to try out delicious bottles of red and white wine from trusted producers across the world. The club offers a flat fee for the bottles and keeps things simple for you. It also has a very handy gifting option if you’d like to invite somebody to the club.
