In 2011, three friends set out to change the way that “normal” people prepared and ate their meals. Starting with their family and friends, they packed and delivered fresh ingredients and recipes to ten families, and the rest, as they say, is history. By now it’s likely that you’ve heard of, or seen an advertisement in the mail for HelloFresh, the easy meal plan service that delivers fresh ingredients, ready to make amazing meals, right to your door. You know, bright green background with a fun white font and a little lime on the side? Anyway, it seems only fitting that they would branch out and add something that people love to pair with food, wine! This new adventure comes in the form of a wine club wherein you join and receive 6 bottles of wine each month. Something that is catching on, wine pairing with the meal deliveries, HelloFresh has been smart to jump on this train.
The wines from Hello Fresh Wine Club are selected by their team of sommeliers and are previewed on the website each month. Unlike some of the other wine clubs, you can see what it is you’re receiving. Whether you choose all red wines, all white wines or a mixture of the two. They’ve also created an easy way to match their wines to their perfectly prepared meals. Each wine comes with an icon associated with it: Bold, Rich, Bubbly, Light, Earthy, Fruity, or Easy. Every meal you receive also comes with this icon so that any time you want to pair your wine selection with your meal selection it’s a no brainer. Just choose the wine that has the matching icon and you’re all set.
On the Hello Fresh site, the Wine Club is a minor player as of yet. Most of the links do direct back their meal site. But this doesn’t mean the Wine Club isn’t a big part of what they do.
How it Works
It’s fairly simple actually. First, you choose your wine options, red, white or mixed. Then, receive your monthly delivery which you can skip or change up whenever you want. You can even change your address for a month if you wish. This makes it easy to take your wine with you on your vacation, or gift a month to a friend or family member.
As with any of the Wine cCubs these days, you are free to choose what you prefer. Strictly Reds or Whites, or you can get a combo box of a mix of the two. With HelloFresh, if you’ve gone the route of ordering meals along with your wines, you may want to consider the mixed box so that you can always have a perfectly paired glass of wine with your meal.
With each box containing 6 wines, you have plenty for the month and may even have a bottle or two to share during the month. Think about always having a hostess gift on hand. Or maybe you’ve forgotten a co-worker’s birthday.
