“Wait, no, finish your story about James McAvoy,” Nyasha Bass, the Director of Business Development for the Hearst Affiliate team, says to me over Zoom. We’re both sipping a dense red from our Wine Access box, and though we were initially discussing its body and tannin levels, we somehow got sidetracked by a funny interview from the Graham Norton show that I had seen the previous day. McAvoy had apparently met a fan who was shocked that he didn't want to sleep with her, despite the fact that she had her husband's permission. I tend to run my mouth nonsensically when I'm having a good time, so in a way, that’s a ringing endorsement of Wine Access.
Wine Access is a quarterly wine subscription service that delivers hand-picked wines to your door four times a year. As to whose hands we’re talking about, they employ a Master Sommelier, a Master of Wine, an International wine Judge, and a rotating cast of guest recommenders (that's a word, right?) that include Michelin-star Sommeliers and world-renowned winemakers that pull their selections from vineyards around the world. Offering diversity, quality, and convenience, Wine Access is, for a limited time, also offering $25 off your first two Wine Club shipments. That’s $50 off in the first six months.
