VINO

Best Buy Club

The  goal of the Best Buy Club  is to offer you the opportunity to experience some of the world’s greatest wine  values. This two-bottle offering is only $20.00 per month. Vino  has always sought out hard-to-find, reasonably priced wines from all the growing  regions around the globe. We feel strongly that a person doesn’t have to pay  $15-20 a bottle to enjoy fine wine. The rapport we enjoy with our distributors  and importers will ensure that each month you’ll receive what we feel are some  of the best bargains to be found anywhere. And these wines are offered at a  discount from our already low retail prices. Along with your shipment of wine  you’ll receive tasting notes, including background information on the winery,  plus food- matching suggestions. And you don’t have to worry about missing out  on all the great finds we come across here at Vino.  each month as a member you’ll automatically receive these selections at your  home or office. You can also arrange this as a wonderful thank- you gift for  a business associate or a welcome gift to any friend or relative. You can specify  the length of the membership and can cancel at any time. Sign up now by sending us an email or call the store (503.235.8545). Each monthly club selection can be picked up at the store, delivered locally here in Portland, or shipped wherever you want. Just give us the details and we’ll handle the rest!
