I’m thrilled to announce that Food & Wine has just launched a new wine club: Firstleaf.
Why Firstleaf? The name is a nod to the first harvest a vineyard ever produces—the start to a long future of producing excellent wines. That’s what this club is going to offer for its members, too: regular shipments of exciting new small-production wines, ones you'll want to try over and over again.
Firstleaf wines are sourced from top-quality vineyards and wineries around the world. But unlike other wine clubs, which just ship whatever bottles they feel like sending, Firstleaf is interactive. As a member, you rate the bottles you’ve received, and Firstleaf creates a personalized selection for you for each shipment based on your tastes. Plus, you get to preview those choices, and swap out anything you don’t want for another wine—and the whole process takes less than 30 seconds.
