It’s that time of the month, of the every other month… when a person in a branded van appears at my door with a casual, how to do (whilst leaving the imprint of his knuckles upon my door), loaded with a case from the society filled with wines that might be gone by the end of next week.
The Discovery Case is a great rack filler. I don’t overly find I am discovering anything greatly, but there are wines in there that - through force of habit - I doubt I would buy. I’ve had some crackers in there and some gluggers, but never really anything (at the price point) that I would say I didn’t like. Less meh, more yeah - all things considered.
I buy other wines, I explore and discover in other means - but as a case every other month to sit in the rack for a Tuesday night with a big bowl of pasta it is a great addition to the wines I buy. I am indebted to the society for putting in a bit of thought to their wines without fuss, so that I don’t have to.
