Joining the Firstleaf wine club starts with a quiz — a very easy quiz. Just tell them about your wine preferences and they’ll create a customized tasting profile, which they’ll use to curate your introductory shipment. After that, you can rate the wines they send with a simple thumbs up or thumbs down to refine your tasting profile even further. Every shipment includes six wines and costs $90, including shipping. And if you happen to get a bottle that you’re not keen on, the Firstleaf Wine Concierge team will find a replacement on the house.
