Naked Wines

Cost:

Starting from $40

Naked Wines is a wine club that offers discount wines to its members, whom they call "angels". This monthly fee for a discount is a common feature of many wine clubs we have reviewed, but Naked Wines brings a different angle to the wine membership idea by using the membership fees to directly fund independent wine makers, who then offer their product back to Naked Wines at a deep discount which club members are able to enjoy. The way the "angel" membership works is, members pay $40 a month that goes into the "Naked Piggybank". Naked Wines then uses this pool of money to invest directly in over 100 independent winemakers who supply their product back to the club where members enjoy an advertised 40%-60% off retail.

Naked Wines claims this direct investment approach allows them to offer lower prices than other wine clubs, since they directly fund the wine makers themselves, avoiding marketing, sales and other costs. This unique structure functions like a crowd-sourcing program with members funding the winemakers, so that the membership fee feels more like an investment in independent wine makers with a personal return of excellent wine. This is an attractive idea for both the winemakers and prospective members.

The Naked Wines website is attractive and easy to navigate. The home page is divided into three sections that highlight the main features of Naked Wines, which are getting access to world class wines, receiving a deep discount on wines made by independent wine makers, and supporting wine makers through the companyís group funding concept. Clicking on any of these sections brings to you pages describing the various features of the site, and if visiting the site for the first time a pop up window will appear offering a $50 voucher for use on any online order.

When we went to apply for an angel membership, however, the angel program was currently closed in order to "keep the number of angels manageable". (More than 100k members were registered at the time of this writing) We were offered an additional voucher for $60 if we joined the waiting list which they said was currently around 31 days. Along with the $50 first time voucher this could be used to get a total of $110 in free wine. There is a link to a page to cash in the vouchers using a code, and then the discount is applied against the order total at checkout. The vouchers can only be applied to orders of more than $160. Additionally, the vouchers are not available in all states dependent on state liquor laws. For example in Massachusetts Naked Wines offers a 20% discount instead.

Overall we really love Naked Wines for its wine community feel. Wine lovers can have a lot of fun here, access excellent wines for good discounts, and support local winemakers as well. However the voucher system seems a little spotty and we didnít love the idea of having to wait a month or more to get access to the discounts of being a member.

For online wine shoppers, it's good to know which wine companies provide the best shopping experience and affordable, high quality wines. When shopping online for wine, you should be sure to look for the following characteristics:

  • Selection. What types of wines are sold at this website. Is there a wide variety of wines to choose from?
  • Cost. What is the price range of the wines listed? How does that compare to the wines available at other companies?
  • Return policy. If there's a problem with your wine purchase, will the company work to replace the bottle of wine or refund your money?
