Bright Cellars
FEBRUARY 13, 2015 ~ FRANCESCA














http://www.brightcellars.com/







You probably remember a while back my post about the Boston based subscription company called Bright Cellars, a wine subscription company, my favorite of all of the monthly subscription boxes I receive. 





They sent me a complimentary box to review for the blog which I loved & we decided to partner up again (no brainer, I know)! 





 I will be the first to admit, I LOVE (red) wine but know very little about it – besides red/white and a little about the stereotypes of each kind (from my bar-tending career).




This is where Bright Cellars comes in, it’s a company launched by two MIT graduates whose goal was to introduce “hidden gems” (non mainstream wines) to you each month, they know you will love them because they created a “quiz” which matches your taste preferences using a bright points algorithm GENIUS I know… I tell you these MIT kids think of everything!










Once you get your score they suggest wines you would like (and have never heard of) – it even tells you what specifically you may like about the wines! 




The best part is each month you get 4 DIFFERENT wines to try – so you are constantly being exposed to new wines. 



You can rate and customize the experience, just like songs on Pandora, you love a wine, you can let them know and “request more like this” or if you don’t like it – you can do the opposite – just like when you are listening to a station on Pandora!




Members have access to a wine concierge who can help you with anything you need

the rest is fine (managing your account, asking questions, keeping you updated on deals, helping you with gift cards.)




You can take the quiz yourself – its super quick and easy, it asks things like what is your fav juice in the morning (i picked does coffee count as a juice) and candy preferences!











I like anything with the one for you, one for me type of motto, Bright Cellars has a rewards program where you can refer a friend and share on social media to earn bonus wines to your subscription – sometimes even wildcards that are still aligned with your preferences but maybe a little outside of your comfort zone!






They are even offering my readers 50% off their first month with this link so head on over to their site and take the quiz and enjoy your first shipment!! 




Your taste buds will thank you!






enjoy

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
