Welcome To Wine Access

Consider us your direct line to wines typically reserved for industry insiders and Michelin-star restaurants

We're a group of wine professionals with decades of experience judging international wine competitions and curating wine lists at Michelin-star restaurants. We've joined together to help you discover some of the world's best bottles from family-owned estates, legendary winemakers, and coveted marquees.

We taste over 20,000 of the world's best bottles every year to bring you only the very best

We all visit with producers around the world to learn more about their wines, wineries, and winemakers – bringing back the most captivating bottles for us each to taste. Every week, we get together and judge different vintages, not knowing how much each bottle costs. If we all award a wine 90+ points and believe the bottle is worth more than it costs, we feature it. Of the 20,000 wines we taste each year, fewer than 1% have made the cut.

It doesn't matter how remarkable the wine is if it doesn’t make it to your door in the same condition as it left the winery

We use a weather controlled shipping system with detailed data on a zip by zip basis to ensure the wine you order arrives in the same condition it left the winery and arrives when you can be there to pick it up.

Any bottle that fails to impress is on the house!
