About Winc

Winc, formerly Club W, is the first customized, subscription based site for wine. They are an online community of wine enthusiasts committed to taking the hassle, guesswork and pretentiousness out of enjoying a great bottle of wine at a reasonable price. For far too long buying wine has been a one-way street with experts using overblown wine jargon to tell people what to drink.
