How to Drink More Wine Without Draining Your Bank Account

For those who partake in the responsible consumption of adult beverages from time to time, a daily glass of good wine isn’t just recommended — it's delicious.

But the high cost of quality wine usually keeps that occasional pleasure from being a regular practice, right? Why not sample varieties from around the world, create pairings to match your meals, learn more about vineyards, and generally live the wine life every day? An LA-based startup, Winc, says drink up.

Winc is a wine delivery service that brings top-shelf bottles to your front door for half the price of store-bought wine. And you won’t just be getting random picks. Winc assesses your preferences and comes up with the perfect mix to match up with your palate. Already know what you want? No problem. You can peruse Winc’s massive collection of wines and discover vinters to fit your tastes.

Every Winc delivery comes with flavor notes, vineyard backstories, and food pairing ideas that help you become a more informed wine drinker. Normally this deal would get you a $52 credit, effectively covering the cost of four $13 bottles plus shipping, but for a limited time, that price has been slashed in half, giving you four unbelievable bottles for just $26. Salut!

Winc also has some tips on Christmas dinner and pairings if you’ve decided to go the turkey route. When you think turkey, your first instinct is probably a white wine—but you’ll need one that can handle some cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes, too. According to sommelier Samantha Payne, a bold chardonnay like Kistler’s 2015 Les Noisetiers ($60) will do the trick. “This wine has everything: toasty, creamy, buttery notes that complement the turkey, alongside apricot and cashew characters that’ll hold up nicely against the stuffing,” she says. “Plus, there's the slightest lick of minerality, which gives the wine a refreshing finish and lifts the density of the meat.”

A medium-bodied sauvignon blanc will work too, says Brian Smith, co-founder and "chief wine officer" of the popular wine subscription service, Winc. “The heaviness of a side dish like green bean casserole will underscore the acidity of a wine like the 2016 Diviner Sauvignon Blanc ($19). It’s got the perfect balance of fruitiness and acidity for a Christmas day meal.”

Winc wines make a great gift for the holidays and bottles start as low as $13! The best part: All Newsmax readers will get $20 off their first order with Winc. There’s no membership fee, you can always skip a month, and you can cancel your subscription at any time.
