In collaboration with Firstleaf® Wine Club. Thank you for supporting the brands that support A Taste of Koko!
It’s officially fall which means cooler weather and backyard dinner parties! We are wine drinkers but we have friends that are avid wine drinkers and are very particular on their varietals and blends so I thought it would be fun to try out Firstleaf and do a wine tasting. I dread standing in the wine aisle at the grocery store surrounded by reds, white, and sparkling. And not to mention, having to ask all of my friends what kind of wine they’d like. So having Firstleaf send a box of six different bottles of wine, this was perfect! We set up the backyard with blankets and pillows, fired up the pizza oven, and turned on the fire pit for a cozy evening.
We are familiar with wine clubs and know how expensive they can get so when I first opened up Firstleaf, I was very surprised by that you can get 6 bottles (award winning bottles) for less than $50!
Firstleaf starts with a quiz that asks you different questions so they can learn what you like and don’t like to create a taste profile on you to curate wine selections based on your answers. So you can discover amazing wine without the guesswork!
Here is the selection Firstleaf curated for me – I love Rosé and Chardonnay but I never know from which regions are best. Josh loves red wines so I’m excited to try the Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache with him.
Firstleaf samples 10,000 wines A YEAR – and only 2% make it in the wine club. I love that they thoroughly explain each bottle! Firstleaf helps save you up to 60% off retail prices by eliminating the middleman and working directly with some of the world’s foremost wine producers—which means you’ll pay under $15 per bottle for exceptional wine.
The Firstleaf box of wine came very quickly – it’s complimentary shipping on your first order and all 12 bottle orders ($29.90 value)! I’m setting up the backyard dining table here with appetizers, pizza spread and wine glasses for our wine tasting.
Our friends were actually very into each of the Firstleaf info/tasting cards that shared information on each bottle of wine. As a Firstleaf member, you also get complimentary access to Firstleaf’s exclusive WSET-certified Wine Concierge team. They can offer wine recommendations based on your taste profile, discuss your account, review preferred bottles for future shipments, and more.
The more wines you rate, the more personalized your selections will become, and our recommendations will evolve as your tastes do to create a custom ‘wine print’ that is completely unique to you.
This was such a fun way to try out different wines with friends!
