What Make The Best Wine Subscription In Australia?
With numerous new wine subscription services popping up, it can be difficult to tell the good from the not so good. So, here’s a list of inclusions we consider to be important when choosing and deciding on your Membership.
Is the wine subscription company well regarded and respected?

In fact, we’ve satisfied the thirst and interest of so many wine lovers, that we’ve been named as one of 2021’s Trusted Brands in Australian Wine Subscriptions. Just another reason why Wine Selectors is simply a better way to buy Australian wine.

Co-Chaired by Adam Walls and PJ Charteris, the Wine Selectors Tasting Panel is the most experienced in the Australian wine industry, and represents all aspects of the business including winemaking, wine show judging, wine buying, education and top sommeliers. The combination of this incredible range of skills and talents, ensures we present the true diversity of Australian wine and Australian tastes.
Extremely knowledgeable and full of passion, the Panel meets every week to blind taste a selection of wines to add to our expansive collection. They use the Australian Wine Show judging system where every wine is blind tasted and they assess the colour, nose, and palate, reaching a score out of 20.
