Why Buy Wine Futures?

Every year our wonderful customers have lamented about their favorites being sold out. The program is quite simple: We are guaranteeing you availability of our most popular, limited production wines. wine_barrelEvery year, when the new vintage is still in barrel/tank, we allocate a small percentage to Futures purchases; that is, while the wines are still aging and before they’re bottled, you may purchase it by the case with a 50% deposit, thus locking in a much lower price than when the wine is eventually available to the public. Our futures discount is currently 25%. This represents a savings of $50 to $100 on every case. Once the wine is bottled, a notice is sent to you with the balance and instructions for shipping or pickup. We hope that each of you will consider taking advantage of our Futures program. You’ll save money on the wines you buy, there’s opportunity for price appreciation later and you’ll be sure to receive our very best wines before they sell out. And all wines in the futures program do sell out.
