Wine delivered by a hunk-of-a-stud directly to your door, selected by an expert sommelier to satisfy your particular taste in the good stuff. No, this isn’t the start of some soft-core wino porno, and I can’t even guarantee the hunk-of-a-stud part, but what is true about this lovely vision is the immense satisfaction Club W provides to their members through their simplistic way of sharing and tasting wine.
For $39 a month, Club W offers members the opportunity to order three wines from their monthly selection from around the world to be shipped and delivered to their doorstep. If the member is a wine-nube, Club W’s team of curators can help them in this selection process by offering them recommendations for their sipping pleasure based off of their Palate Profile. Striving to make wine assessable to everyone, Club W exudes an unpretentious love for a great bottle of vino, and hopes to share it with everyone – young, old, rich or poor.
Expanding this relaxed philosophy to reach an even bigger audience, Club W is hosting Unwined: A Wine Party Without the Rules, at the Exdo Event Center, July 21-22. “A wine extravaganza that will be nothing like your father’s wine tastings,” according to organizers, guests are invited to sample sips from 21 different wineries and eats from nine local food trucks, all while enjoying tunes from DJs Clay Meador and Peter Black and a performance by Flashlights. A game area for those young at heart will be available, including classics like Jenga and ping-pong. Unwined will offer more than 200 different wines at this all-you-can-drink event, hoping to give current and future members of Club W a broad selection of tastes to further educate them on their road to wine mastery.
As a further excuse to sip wine without abandon, part of the $50 entry fee for Unwined will help support the non-profit organization of First Descents, which offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free week-long outdoor adventure experience. For an added donation guests can test their luck at the Club W Wine Wall, where they will be able to pick a bottle from a collection that will contain both everyday wines and specialty bottles.
Promising a fun and relaxed atmosphere to their guests, Club W hopes to foster a sense of community and fun at Unwined, bringing the innovative wine experience of Club W to life in the Mile High City.
