What is the Best Hawaii Wine Club?
There’s no competition when it comes to the best wine club for Hawaii. We’re going with Naked Wines. You simply get the most interesting, artisanal labels from every corner of the globe, fund their production, and get the first taste. Now you won’t find that at our corner store!
The first thing that happens when you join Naked Wines is you get to call yourself an angel. This is the name for members because by funding innovative winemaking with their subscription fees, they bring cherished plans to fruition. The second thing is you get to pick and choose from an array of exciting projects going on anywhere you find grapes and be among the first to taste the results.
With its ear firmly to the ground, Naked Wines connects passionate and ambitious vintners with its 300,000-strong membership and makes beautiful things happen. You might help a French winemaker create an organic Chenin Blanc or a young South African winery release its first Pinotage. You opt for the project you like, sit back, and wait for your case of goodies to arrive.
There’s also the chance to chat with other angels and your favorite vintners in dedicated chat areas.
Support amazing winemaking then swirl and sip the results with Naked Wines.
As soon as you get the ball rolling with Bright Cellars, you reply to seven deep-dive questions that reveal what you like in a glass. You might already know that you enjoy oaky Chardonnay and tannic Cab Sauv (and if you do, Bright Cellars will find out), but you might find out you love loads of other varietals and styles too. How it works is your data's crunched up, formed into a palate profile, and your shipments reflect this to a T.
As you go along, you rate each bottle, automatically calibrating your profile to shape the next case into another gold winner fashioned to your tastes.
Every single label in Bright Cellars’ portfolio has gone through a stringent tasting process and only the best make it into the club. This works out as being one in 12 so you enjoy quality from around the world in every sip.
Cutting-edge tasting tech means cases full of the best from Bright Cellars.
You don’t need to look any further if you want to go steady on alcohol and sugar levels in your wine. Most of this club’s labels have as little as 7% ABV and none go above 12.5% so we’re in the low to medium territory here. What’s more, sugar levels in each glass are remarkably low yet you’ll never guess from the full taste of each glass.
One of the main reasons for tasting like a regular glass of red or white is because of the dry farming vintners use (hence the club name). This means vines aren’t irrigated and they have to search deeply for nutrients. The result is superior fruit and concentrated wines. Much of Dry Farm Wines’ range is produced through organic and biodynamic means as well so this club is not only good for you, but for the environment as well.
You’ve got the choice of a red, white, mixed, rosé, or bubbly club.
Dry Farm Wines is perfect if you want to combine health with enjoyment of the grape.
