We are wine lovers and searchers. Since 2007, each day, we've written stories about wines we've discovered, tasted and evaluated in the cellars where they were made. About 1 out of 18 make the cut. We negotiate prices on our membership's behalf, then arrange to have bottles shipped directly from the source — right to your door.
Great wine is all about one man's or woman's expression of her land in a given growing season. We don't simply present wine offers. We research our selections, helping you understand why each wine is special. It's often in the 'why' that one makes sense of what one tastes.
Once we've done the research, talking to the winemakers and identifying promising wines, we taste each bottle ourselves and pick only the best ones to feature. And it's often not about high scores from the well-known experts. Our experience is that "highly scored" wines aren't always what they're cracked up to be, or are often not good values. If you rely solely on scores, you will miss many wonderful discoveries.
Shipping laws vary from state to state. This map shows the states we ship to. We'll only show you wines that are available in the state you've indicated you are shipping to. If you change your shipping address during checkout, we'll let you know if any of the wines in your cart cannot be shipped to your location.
Federal law requires that someone of at least 21 years of age sign for all wine shipments. If no adult is home at the time of delivery, FedEx or UPS is obliged to return the wine to its local warehouse, and then reschedule delivery.
If you have your Wine Access shipment sent to a business address, delivery usually takes place in the mid-morning and can be signed for by any adult on the premises.
