    What is Dry Farm Wines wine club?

    Dry Farm Wines curates organic wines from vineyards around the world. Its unique selling point is its claim that the wines it chooses for its club members have been lab-tested for purity. 

    However, the extra work that goes into selecting the wines can mean this club is costly for some people. Dry Farm Wines even makes bold claims of hangover-free wines on offer in its club membership.

    Simply choose one of three different membership levels and sign up via the website. You can choose to have 3, 6, or 12 bottles delivered to you on a monthly or bi-monthly basis.

    About the wine

    Dry Farm Wines goes to a lot of trouble to source organic wines, so you’ll find a lot of smaller, niche vineyards in its selections. This means there’s not always a set list of wines it’ll have on offer each month and, unfortunately, you can’t browse the selection of wines on the website. However, recent varietals have included Cabernet Franc and Callet. 

    Dry Farm Wines wine club wine brands

    As with the varieties, it can be difficult to find reliable information on the brands available. Dry Farm Wines will hand-select the wines for you and it doesn’t disclose the different brands and vineyards it uses. You’ll have to wait until your first delivery to see which brands are on offer.

    Service and contact availability 

    If you need to make a query about the Dry Farm Wines’ range or check up on an order, there are a few ways of getting in touch. First, you can try an FAQ section where accounts, shipping, and ordering are included. If you don’t find what you’re looking for and still need to “talk” to someone, there’s live chat, text, or email. Obviously, with such a unique range of wines, you’ll want to dig deeper to find out exactly what “biodynamic” means and how reds and whites taste if they’re low in sugar and alcohol. The FAQ area answers a slew of such questions.

    Cancellation terms 

    Dry Farm Wines allows you to cancel your subscription for any reason whenever it may suit you with no penalty. If you don’t want to outright cancel, you can suspend your account until further notice. 

    Disadvantages

    It’s hard to find fault with a club like Dry Farm Wines. The range is excellent, the quality is top-notch in no small part because of how the labels are produced, and you have a lot of flexibility in how you run your account. The only stand-out negative is it costs more than your usual club but, as with any organic and naturally-made products, that’s because production methods need more investment to achieve the resulting high standard. The only other negative (and this is a push) is you can’t contact the club by phone. It also doesn’t appear to have wine club deals.

    The difference from the competitors

    The clear difference between Dry Farm Wines and other clubs is its range. It operates on the philosophy of offering pure and healthy labels that don’t harm the environment. Dry farming, for instance, saves copious amounts of water and leads to better quality fruit. It also focuses on doing things naturally which is similar but not quite the same thing as organic. Biodynamic farming, for example, is full of practices that are in sync with nature. In the winery, “natural” approaches are in place, so ambient yeasts are used in fermentation and there’s no fining or filtration. 

    Conlcusion

    Dry Farm Wines is the perfect club for people who really enjoy wine but want to avoid alcohol and high-sugar levels that are in each glass. Quite a few health and fitness luminaries endorse it including actress Halle Berry and the club is big on creating a community for members who see their wine as part of a healthy lifestyle (more on this later).

    As far as the labels go, Dry Farm Wines has worked with more than 600 small family growers who make their wines with minimal machination and a focus on sustainability. The lack of pesticides and winery chemicals is better for nature and dry farming saves an estimated 

    16,000 gallons of water per acre each year. What’s more, the natural production methods such as the use of native yeasts and sulfite levels that are way below standard levels means richer, brighter wines. After all, it isn’t just about being kind to nature and our bodies, what’s in the glass needs to taste good! 

    Dry Farm Wines criteria mean the full range in the red wine club and other styles taste vibrant, pure, and express a sense of place or “terroir”. If you find a wine that really ticks all your boxes (and you will!) the club has a VIP Program that facilitates purchase outside your regular deliveries. It creates bespoke, one-off orders of particular wines at your request. You’re free to order these any time you like. They cost the same as regular shipments and come with the standard Happiness Promise.

    As mentioned earlier, this club has created a community around healthy living which you can dip into if you wish (but there’s no obligation). It has a digital publication called “A Matter of Taste” which covers food, drink, health, and all “the ingredients of a life well lived”. Topics covered include architecture, wine bars and restaurants around the world, wine regions, club growers, and the health benefits of food and drink. There’s also an Instagram account you can follow to keep in touch with wine, community news, and wine club reviews from members.

    The community feel is extended in virtual vine tasting events held from time to time to keep every connected and to enjoy new releases.
