Bright Cellars is a monthly wine club that matches you with wines you'll love.

Founded by two MIT grads (#whyD3) who were intimidated by the vast and complex world of wine, Bright Cellars was created to help wine drinkers discover and learn about wine in a fun, interactive way.

Bright Cellars creates a wine experience tailored just for you. Based on an algorithm, wine selections are calculated to match your taste preferences. As you try the wines, you're encouraged to rate them on the website to fine-tune your taste profile even further. Your matches improve as the algorithm gets to know you better, making each shipment better than the last.

D3Playbook readers are invited to get 50% off your first 6-bottle box from Bright Cellars. That's a $45 value. Each box will include a wine education card for each bottle that details servings temps, food pairings, background on the region and more.

Take our 30-second quiz to start your holiday weekend right.

How to Have a Wedding During SEC Football Season - The Pink Bride
by Nicole Auerbach, The Athletic

"The Wedding Report, an industry research firm, estimates that there will be 2.77 million weddings in the U.S. in 2021 — compared to just 1.1 million in 2020. That estimate would be a 30 percent increase over 2019. Essentially, there are two years’ worth of weddings happening this year. And after a slow return to something like normal in most areas over the first half of this year, many of those weddings are ticketed for the fall, which is as close to blasphemous as you can get for college football fans in some parts of this country.

But this year, there were few other options. Fans, friends and family alike will simply have to deal with it."

>> What They're Saying: “We definitely started out as people who were like, ‘The only type of friends who schedule weddings in the fall are former friends,’” Paul Wiley said. “We were absolutely adamant that there was no way we were doing a fall wedding.”

>> Smart Man: “Between the wedding and honeymoon, we’re missing more than half the (home Virginia) games this fall, and that’s probably something pre-pandemic I would have blanched at,” Wiley said. “But now it’s like, ‘Dude, I’m going to be married. I’m going to be on a tropical island. I can find a TV and at least catch the score.’ “There are bigger fish to fry.”
