Woody Allen quoting Groucho Marx – “I’d never join a club that would allow a person like me to become a member.”
I’ve been curious about belonging to some club other than the gym I go to. While I do enjoy reading, book clubs can be boring and members not always on the same page. I need something a bit more exciting. It would be nice to belong to a golf or tennis club – or better still, a yacht club but I’d end up using the privileges for the bar or restaurant because I’m not so good at either golf or tennis. I do really enjoy
sitting on a sailboat drinking wine sailing.
Anyway I found something I excel at – wine tasting, wine drinking and wine sourcing (for drinking purposes). So I joined a wine club. Every month starting mid-May I’ll be getting 3 (starting out small) exceptional bottles from Marquis wine club delivered to my front door. All of which are not easily found elsewhere in the BC marketplace and many of the selections are brought in just for the club, and thus are not available anywhere else. Talk about customer service and aiming to please: they claim to deliver great value wines that are delicious and technically superior to many wines available in the marketplace. They guarantee all of their wines, meaning if you really don’t like one, or if it’s flawed in some way, you can let them know and they’ll send you another bottle. What’s not to like?
Then I plan to do wine/food pairings based on the particular bottles received – looking forward to that. Most people plan their meal and then choose the wine to go along but this time it will be WINE FIRST. I love the element of surprise….(of course providing it’s a good surprise). I’ll update you later with results. Until then….cheers!
Have you ever been part of a wine club? If so tell me how you enjoyed the choices? Did they deliver?
