Platinum Wine Club: Details & Selections Of The Month

For our 20th anniversary we created the Platinum Wine Club, allowing you to explore the world of wine 2 bottles at a time. We give you a wine you probably know (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay) and then one that’s off the wall, something you would probably never pick up on your own and to take you out of your comfort zone. We have done a Txakoli from Spain, a Claret from the Columbia Valley & a Gamay Beaujolais rose from Burgundy, to name a few. You can also structure the Platinum Wine Club to fit your needs! You get a sheet, explaining the wines, where they are from, tasting notes and food pairings too.  Here’s how it works:
 
The basic membership is 2 wines a month for $30.00.
You can also do 4 wines a month for $60.00
You can just do a 2 bottle, 3 month membership for $90.00, payable in advance. The same applies for 4 bottles for $180.00, payable in advance.
