Michael Mondavi Private Cellars Wine Club

Wine expert Michael Mondavi has created a new Private Cellars club to share his knowledge with those who have the funds to buy top bottles, but not necessarily the time to track them down. Enophiles who join have the option to choose from monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly shipments which are organized by region and contain select vintages that aren’t even available to purchase through retail outlets. Outside of sampling Michael’s own personal tastes, other benefits of joining include 10% discounts on wine acquired in addition to the regular shipments. Members also have the opportunity to gain VIP access to private events and top wine makers in locations such as Florence, Barcelona, Frankfurt — just to name a few. Prices of course vary on what plan you opt in for, but generally the club’s goal is to keep all wine shipments under $600 in value (which includes shipping). Short of Bacchus descending on your home, it’s the easiest way to stock up your cave. Gleeful pipe players and grape-loving nymphs sadly aren’t part of the package.
