Via Felix Salmon, and of course the New York Times, we learn that the New York Times has a wine club. The Times sold the rights to their name to Global Wine Company, who will manage the club under the Times name in the same fashion they have done for Omaha Steaks or Celebrity Chef Michael Chiarello.
I haven’t had every wine on the NYT club list, but in general the suckitude quotient seems to be pretty low for a mass market wine club offering. Plus, as Salmon points out, you can elect to buy only one shipment of wine and not be forced to opt out of future shipments.
All in all, not a bad offering.1,254 comments
