There's something so special about finally breaking out that bottle of wine you've been saving for a momentous occasion. There's, of course, the doubt - is this the perfect time? There's the anticipation of opening the bottle, selecting the taster, the further anticipation that this will be a wonderful bottle…
If you want more of those memorable experiences, you need more bottles of fine wine! Finding the wines that will reward you for waiting until just the right moment can be tricky. You don't want to pay a fortune, but you're willing to pay for good quality; that's where The New York Times Wine Club comes in. They offer a premium level membership that delivers wines you'll love which will only deepen and bloom with age.
Curious about receiving high-end bottles right on your doorstep? Here are all the answers to your questions.
Okay, what exactly is a wine club?
Wine clubs help you discover wines you wouldn't ordinarily choose; sometimes they're from rare vineyards or exclusively offered by the wine retailer. They send bottles directly to your door at regular intervals, such as every month.
I tried a wine club before and I wasn't a fan - how is the New York Times Wine Club different?
The premiere membership offers the good stuff. The really good stuff. They work directly with vineyards and distributors to provide a variety of wines from the world's best wine regions. On average, bottles are sold individually for $30. They also offer perfectly paired recipes from The New York Times and Times Tastings Notes, so you can learn about the wine and increase your wine knowledge. If you constantly dog-ear the Food Section, this club is probably for you.
How often do they deliver?
This subscription is much more flexible than others - you can choose to receive six wines every two months, or every three months. If that's not enough, you can rebuy your favorites from their convenient wine store.
What if I don't like one of the wines?
If you find that a bottle doesn't meet your palate's expectations, contact support and they'll replace the bottle with a different one or send you a credit. Their elite team of wine experts only selects one out of every fifty bottles they taste to be sold to members. That's how you get the best of the best.
Am I locked into a subscription?
You're free to cancel your membership at any time. There's also a membership that offers shipments of $15 wines if you want more affordable, everyday bottles with one, two, or three-month deliveries.
This is a wine club that doesn't merely feature the trendiest wines, but the best wines. Each bottle is hand-selected just for you, whether you're toasting a new job, or savoring a Marcella Hazan sauce. Again, this is the best stuff. With The New York Times Reserve Wine Club, get ready to celebrate any amazing opportunity or milestone that comes your way.
UPDATE: Our friends at the New York Times Wine Club are offering our readers a special discount. Use code "POP" to get $50 off your first shipment - that's 6 bottles for only $40!
Baz Luhrmann's 1996 Romeo + Juliet is an ecstasy-infused, colorful retelling of the star-crossed lovers' tale that takes a 425-year-old story and strangely reflects society in 2020.
Pandemics are known for triggering upheaval and societal change.
It's probably no coincidence, then, that Shakespeare penned Romeo and Juliet around 1595—directly in the middle of the deadly Bubonic plague pandemic that ravaged Europe. Amidst today's pandemic, the most relevant adaptation of this timeless and classic tragedy was made nearly 25 years ago.
Baz Luhrmann's 1996 Romeo + Juliet is an ecstasy-infused, colorful retelling of the star-crossed lovers' tale. Romeo + Juliet made a decent ranking at the box office, but it was heavily overlooked for awards, only receiving one Oscar nomination for best art direction.
Had Luhrmann waited just 10 years to release Romeo + Juliet, there may have been more positive reactions to the film. At one point, Baz himself doubted that the movie would ever be made. During a 2015 interview discussing the film, Baz said: "When we went to Twentieth Century-Fox with it, under the terms of my first-look deal, I think rather than let me go, they sort of said, 'We'll give him $100,000, let him do his little workshop and maybe it'll go away.' Well it did not."
Romeo + Juliet takes a 425-year-old story and strangely reflects society in 2020. Here's why:
Are they real? Who cares?
Everyone has heard of the murder-hotel where dark shadows creep at the edge of your vision, or the abandoned house where the furniture moves each time you leave the room.
But sometimes the places set up to capture the fun and fright of the Halloween season for paying customers can be far more horrifying than any ghost stories. These "fake" haunted houses will leave you genuinely haunted.
