VINO

Cellar Selection Club

VINO Cellar Selections ClubThis  premium wine club has the same format as our Best Buy Club. As a member of Vino’s Cellar Selection Club, you’ll receive two wines for $33.00  per month. The wines will have a suggested  retail price of $18 or higher per bottle. These will be wines that we feel offer  exceptional interest and complexity and, while delicious to consume now, will  benefit from extra time in the cellar. You’ll receive our tasting notes, background  information on the wineries and suggested food pairing. The Cellar  Selection Club is an excellent way to try new wines you may consider for your own cellar, without having to buy by the case to receive a discount.  Again, this is an excellent gift to yourself, or a valued client or relative.  If you’re interested in becoming a member of Vino’s  Cellar Selection Club, simply email or call the store at 503.235.8545.
