For about 50 years, Sunset has been bringing you our recommendations for wines to drink with your favorite weeknight dinners, at special holiday meals, and even around a campfire. And you’ve trusted us to lead you to the good stuff. But, as wine editor Sara Schneider often reminds staff here, wine is very subjective and there is never a wrong answer when it comes to what you like or don’t like. And, now, for the first time, we’re offering you a club that reflects your tastes and preferences: Firstleaf.

Love big California reds? You can set up your membership to receive just that. More into international whites? No problem. The wines in our club are a mix of reputable favorites and exciting, small-production wines exclusive to our members, from the best wine regions around the globe. The beauty of Firstleaf is that you can tell us what you think you like and, through feedback after each shipment, teach us to identify what you’ll truly love.

Did we mention the deeply discounted prices? Your first shipment of three bottles is just $15 (about 60% off retail prices!) plus tax and $5 shipping, and after that you’ll pay just $79 plus tax and $10 shipping for each six-bottle shipment. And whether you’re a casual wine drinker who only wants the occasional shipment, or you drink wine with dinner every night, we have a plan that will keep you in stock with wines you love. Want more or less? You can change it up at any time.

Get started by taking the short quiz about your wine preferences on the Firstleaf site and get your $15 intro pack.

    Unsure how I got THIS tripe. Yes, I like have and do bees beer wine & chickens sometimes… but this smacks as commercial – not as Sunset DIY.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of the FirstLeaf wine club. It looks great so I just signed up to try it out. If it’s as superb as I expect, I’ll definitely be citing as the the inspiration when I write about it on my website. Thanks for making the recommendation 🙂

    I would like to see the decks you list without having to wait in between every two or three for ads I’m not interested in. I have taken Sunset magazine since the 50’s, now I’m 83 and trying to get some ideas for a rotten seaside deck that needs replacing.
