The Firstleaf club:

There are two steps in the Firstleaf wine club membership experience:

  1. Introductory Shipment: Your first delivery from Firstleaf is an introductory shipment made up of 3 personally matched bottles of wines. Before your introductory shipment is selected, Firstleaf asks that you complete a short quiz. Your answers help determine your initial tasting profile and the contents of your introductory shipment. Your feedback on the wines included in your introductory shipment will then be used to update your tasting profile for subsequent deliveries. Firstleaf also offers the option of some special introductory shipments such as the ‘Award-Winning Box’, ‘Big Reds’ and ‘Founder’s Favorite.’
  2. Club Shipments: After you have received and rated the introductory shipment, you then receive your regular club shipment which contains half a dozen bottles of personally matched wines. As a member, you can opt to change any of your selections prior to shipment, and you have the option of monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly deliveries.
