Wine should be an enjoyable experience where the drinker can relax, take in the taste, savour the smell no matter what their preferred flavour. It’s a majestic beverage that can transform a meal, make a night in so much more exciting and liven your mid-week date so why is it that choosing a bottle of wine or talking to a wine enthusiast can be so stressful.
We have all met them and there really is nothing worse than some pretentious wine snob telling you what you should and shouldn’t like or trying to give you a lesson on wine whilst you are attempting to quietly relish a glass of the good stuff. But why do they do it…..because people like to feel like they are in the know, part of some elite club and people like rules and wine historically has a lot of them. Now, don’t get me wrong there are some rules around wine that should be abided by such as the aging regulations of Spanish wines, ensuring the standards set by Consejo Reguladorare (regulatory board) are met for the region and of course ensuring you subscribe to Rebel Wine Club to catch the next delivery slot However when it comes to drinking wine there really are no right or wrongs it’s all down to how it makes you feel as an individual and your unique palette. Its that simple. So relax, it doesn’t have to feel overwhelming and intimidating.
Here at RWB we want to make wine accessible and pleasurable for everyone no matter your knowledge or history with wine but we also want to help expand your horizons, mix up your wine routine and show you what this beautiful country has to offer allowing you to discover new things. We work with independent winemakers from over 60 regions all of which have different techniques, styles and flavours bringing bottles suited to you with the occasional wild card if you’re feeling rebellious! So lets rip up the rule book, break down some of those barriers and let a wine subscription company with a curious streak do the hard work for you whilst you toast the results. I don’t know about you but that sounds like the only club I want to be part of!.”
