Reasons we love NPR: Terry Gross (number one, duh), the tote-bag supply and, as of recently, its respect for our love of wine. Seriously-the public radio station just launched its very first wine club in conjunction with Wines That Rock and Direct Wines. Here’s how it works:
Every three months, subscribers will have a case of three delicious reds, whites and rosés delivered right to their door, while a portion of the proceeds goes toward keeping NPR’s shows up and running. “NPR has a tradition of producing and distributing programs that meet the highest standards of public service in journalism and cultural expression. Now the NPR Wine Club will extend that tradition by bringing together a formidable team of wine experts to guide its members on a journey of discovery through the world of wine,” said Howard Jackowitz, cofounder of Wines That Rock.
Of course, we have no doubt that the highbrow powers at NPR will choose only the best vintages to send to their wine-loving audience, but the super-clever names are what pulled us in. Can I pour you another glass of “All Grapes Considered” Malbec? Or perhaps a taste of “Weekend Edition”Cab Sauv?
Visit the NPR Wine Club website to become a subscriber and get in on the special launch offer: 12 bottles for $80, plus three NPR-specific varietals.
