Learn More About Uncorked Ventures & Our Wine Clubs
Matt & I had the following to say about our January Reserve Wine Club shipment:We hope you enjoy this month’s Reserve Selections shipment. We were thrilled to feature one of the top 5 American Petite Sirah’s available as well as two wineries which we think, given time will become household names themselves. Clos Selene are Paso Robles wines in a Bordeaux or French style and Coastview takes a similar approach to red wine blends out of the Monterrey.
In a lot of ways, our Reserve Wine Club is special. While we consider all of our wine clubs to be 90 point wine clubs, we have a special responsibility when people are paying $65 or $100 per bottle for wine. It isn’t just about 90 point wine at this club level, but instead we have to continue to find not only great wine, but wine which isn’t widely available-even at fine wine stores. The Aratas Petite Sirah included in this month’s shipment was a great example. It was only 37 cases in total production, meaning that unless you’re somewhere close to Napa Valley, it simply isn’t going to be available.
