BrixrPack of 2 Cabs & 2 Pinot from an Artisanal Producer!

Brixr.comWhat is the single biggest problem about wine clubs for both the wine producer/wine store and the consumer who receives the wine?  The wine itself!  The wine producer or wine store owner usually has to send out new wine releases blind to their wine club members and the members just have to hope that they like the wine that they receive, even though it might be very unfamiliar to them as an average wine club member.  What does all of this mean?  A lot of wine bottles that are sent out are not the style of wine that a member enjoys.  This results in frustration, wasted money and sometimes even the cancellation of their membership.  Now there is a solution, one that actually solves the REAL problem that plagues wine clubs…and it’s called Brixr!

Crushpad WineryThe talented and clever wine folks behind Crushpad have fixed the actual problem behind the morass of many a wine club: the wine is not the issue, but the *size* of the wine is truly at fault.  Wine consumers need (and love!) to taste a wine before deciding to buy a bottle.  Most wine consumers do not get the chance to taste the wines that are lined up in front of them at the store or on their computer screen, however.  Enter Brixr tasting packs, the BrixrPack.  These are small packs of between 2-4 wines that utilize TinyBottles that hold 50 mL pours or “tastes” of each wine!  Brilliant stuff.

While I already have written about Brixr's great Pinot Pack #1, here is a new one, featuring 4 wines from one of the producers that showcased a Pinot in that pack: Bon Coeur Cellars.  Dig in to the links below to read my full reviews of the BrixrPack wines that I tasted through in my videos.  Follow the links in the Pack names to get to the Brixr Store where you can purchase these fun wine packs.   All of the wines from Brixr are continuing to be added to WineLog and are tagged with “Brixr“. Cheers!

Are you a winery, distributor or winegrower that would like to get involved with TinyBottles?  Shoot me a line and I’ll get you started!

Wow, that's a lot of links in your review! :P  These little BrixrPacks are a really neat concept though.  I'd more likely purchase these vials than fork over several hundred dollars a year for a wine club.  Thanks for sharing, Ward!  By the way, your review was featured on Lunch's Facebook fan page today ;)

Thanks so much Devora. Yes, I tend to love reading articles that are linked out a lot, Wikipedia- (and Lunch!) style so most of the larger reviews like the ones for these Brixr packs also feature a lot of links. Thanks for featuring my review, that's awesome to hear!
