Whilst wine subscription services or delivery boxes aren’t exactly new, Act of Wine is doing things a little differently. Each month a panel of industry professionals made up of importers and winemakers, get together to taste a lot of wine and carefully select the best natural, organic and sustainable drops from small, independent producers. The wines’ suitability is judged on a few factors – taste and quality first and foremost, but also how appropriate a particular drop is to be drinking at that time of year, as well as making sure each varietal is unique and not too similar to any other wines included in the pack that month.
Act of Wines only selects wines derived from organic, biodynamic and natural farming with a focus on minimal chemical intervention. None of the wines have been clarified or fined using animal derivates meaning that they are all vegan friendly and they are also low to zero added preservative for those who are sensitive to sulphur in high amounts. Act of Wine’s subscription can be tailored to suit your sipping preferences so you can select from one, three, six or 12 bottles per month and nominate all white, all red or a bit of both. The three-bottle subscription starts at $75 (amazing value considering the average price of the wine is $35 per bottle) up to $300 for the dozen.
