What will I receive each month?
Each month you will receive 2 different bottles of hand-crafted, hard to find wine from around the World. Also you will receive our club newsletter "Wine Expeditions". You will receive your shipment by the 3rd or 4th week of each month.
What are some examples of the wine I may receive?
We focus on selections that are produced in small quantities and hard to find. Examples are: Nantucket?s Sauvignon Blanc from the U.S., Maletti Lambrusco DI Sorbara from Italy, Agulhas Bank Chardonnay from South Africa, River Falls Cabernet Sauvignon from Chili, First Run Shiraz from Australia and Casal Mendes Vinho Verde from Portugal.
How is the wine packaged?
To prevent breakage we package the wine in special styrofoam packaging.
How is the wine shipped?
We deliver the wine thru our network via a Common Carrier. We prefer a daytime office address to ensure timely delivery. You must be 21 or older to receive a wine shipment. An adult signature over 21 is required.
Can I choose the wine I receive?
No, all the wines are pre-selected for you. Each wine is carefully judged and approved by our tasting panel. You can re-order a list of past selections at discounted prices from our Shoppers Guide.
Can I get only red wines? or Can I get only white wines?
Yes - You can request All Red or All White or Mixed club selections when you order. There is no extra charge for this.
Where do the wines come from?
They will come from around the world from countries such as: Australia, Chile, Argentina, Portugal, New Zealand, United States and Italy. (Many come from very small award-winning wineries.)
How do I store the wine?
Wine should be stored on it?s side in a cool, dark place. The temperature should be constant all year round (preferable under 60 F and humidity over 75%. Opened bottles of wine will only keep up to a week in the refrigerator.
What temperature should wine be at when I drink it?
White wines should be served cool to avoid a dull flavor. Red wine should be served warm to enhance the flavor. (If served cold, the scent and flavor is dull). Your refrigerator temperature is around 35F. We recommend white wine be served within the first 10 minutes out of the refrigerator. Red wine should be served much warmer (room temp. about 60-65F.)
