Here at Kelly’s Thoughts on Things we have the PERFECT gift idea for the lover of wine in your life. Bright Cellars is a monthly wine club. The best part is they help you find the perfect wine for your taste, by giving you a special quiz, designed to find your perfect wine flavor profiles. Then, every month, you get FOUR bottles of wine, based on your flavor profile. When you receive the wines, make sure you rate them on Bright Cellars, that way, each month, your selections will get better and better. After you complete the quiz, you even get your own wine concierge that will guide you in getting your monthly wine. Also, you can cancel at any time, or set up a specified amount of months to receive your wine. It’s all up to you!
If you’re buying yourself a gift from Bright Cellars, then you will fill out your quiz and go from there. If you’re buying it for a friend or family member, you simply choose the amount of your gift, and Bright Cellars sends the code and personalized gift info right to the recipient’s email.
Bright Cellars was created by two MIT grads with a passion for wine, the Bright Points algorithm scores each wine by comparing 18 attributes to your preferences, matching you with your monthly experience. My first four wines are numbered 93 and 92 based on my flavor profile. They are as follows:
- Nebel Riesling 2014 from Rheinhessen, Germany. New 2014 vintage of one of our top rated wines. A crisp, refreshing German Riesling with a splash of exotic tropical fruit flavor. Enjoy the aroma of ripe fruit, flowers, and honey bursting from the bottle. Pair with shellfish or asian dishes like pad thai or stir fry. The flavors are lemon, lime, pineapple, green apple and floral.
- Tiasta Sauvignon Blanc 2013 from Mendoza, Argentina. This wine is a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with tropical fruit flavors balanced with citrus.
