How it Works
- Receive a monthly email with details on new releases, promotions and more
- Order your 6 bottles at any point during the calendar year, either all at once or bit by bit
- If you haven't fulfilled your 6-bottle commitment by the end of the year, we will reach out to you with options:
- A mixed selection of 6 of our favorite bottles
- A red wine selection of 6 of our favorite bottles
- A white wine selection of 6 of our favorite bottles
- And, of course, you're always welcome to put together your own 6-bottle selection
- If we don't hear back from you (we always make several attempts) we will send you the mixed shipment
- Membership is free, renews automatically, and may be cancelled at any time
