Wine & Cider of the Month Clubs
How the club works:
We are serious about our clubs here!. We offer truly artisanal wines & ciders, from off-the-beaten-path regions and producers that you will never see in other large, nationally advertised monthly clubs. Once a month, we meet and discuss the prospects for next months selections. We strive for excellence, we strive for the selections to "wow" or introduce you to something new, whether it be a grape, a region, or a producer. Each selection comes with a well-written, extremely educational write-up on the wine or cider. It goes into depth about the producer, the region, the style, and the terroir. Just like the wines in our shop, each selection will be unique and chosen by us, particularly with you in mind. Any wine or cider in the club, is one that we would drink ourselves and are proud to have not only in our shop, but potentially in your glass.
All members receive 10% off at the shop anytime and off of anything (in-store items not already discounted). In addition, members receive a code for a special 5% discount off our website checkout.
*The clubs are not just for locals, we will ship! As long as it is legal to ship to your state, you can sign up from afar! Please note that monthly pricing below does not include shipping. Shipping & handling for any of the two bottle clubs (like the Village or Cider tiers) range from $15 to $25 depending on how far from Ithaca or NYS you are. If you are looking to sign up for any of the clubs and are not local please keep this in mind when calculating your monthly costs. You can save on shipping by joining a second club tier as shipping rates do not change much from 2 to 6 bottles, or by simply doubling up the wines or ciders in the club! Please remember that if you ship 6-11 bottles you receive 10% off each bottle and 15% off for 12 or more bottles! (Bi-monthly shipping is also available).
The Village level - 2 bottles each month of a white, red, or both. Pricing will range from $35-$45 a month and directly dependant on the price of the bottles included.
For example: (1) $18 bottle, (1) $22 bottle, + Shipping if you are not local
The "Premier Cru" Level - 4 bottles each month of hand selected wines. Included is the Village Level (entry level) wine club as well as two other harder to find, iconic, altogether more special wines — wines from producers with street cred. These two additional wines total $70, totaling $110/month for the 4-bottle Premier Cru wine club.
The "Grand Cru" Level - 2 bottles per month of the good stuff. We often get many hard to find and often very allocated wines here. Well guess what? You'll have priority access to these wines in this club level. This is an unbelievable way to not only experience wines from the most famous producers and regions of the world, but also start your collection. Wines in this tier might include perfectly-aged Barolo or prized Burgundy. Pricing will range from $100 to $120 per month plus shipping* if you're not local.
The "Cellar d'Or" - Open a couple bottles a week? Always want to have wine on hand to bring to parties or open for guests? Or maybe you just like having a wine rack full of options! This tier is for you! Personalize and tailor this club to what you want and we'll do the rest! Tell us what you like, how many bottles you want, and your monthly budget, and we will choose the perfect wines & ciders for you each month. It can be anything (seriously, try us!). Then, we can tweak it based off of your feedback, changes in taste, or any other requests! And to top it off any 6+ bottle subscribers get 10% off, and and 12+ bottle subscribers get 15% off their monthly club!
The "Cider d'Or" - For lovers of the almighty apple (and pear!). This club consists of two bottles per month of a traditional hard cider from around the world. Two bottles each month of hand crafted cider will await you. From the elusive and esoteric to the new and delicious! We have an amazing selection of hard to find ciders from all over the globe! Pricing will range from $35 to $45 per month plus shipping* if you are not local. Bottle sizes will range from 12oz to 25oz (standard wine bottle size) with 25oz being the most common size! Once in a while you will receive a 12, 16, 0r 22oz bottle!
