How does the wine club work?
Members receive a box of 3 bottles each month for a total of $49. We'll let you know what the selections are ahead of time, and you can mix and match to your preference between the red and white.
The wines change each month, and shipping is $14.99 in California and $19.99 to the rest of the country. We also offer prepaid options of 3, 6, and 12 months with some discounts built in.
If I select 2 reds, and 1 white -- what will I receive?
You'll receive 2 bottles of the same red, and 1 of the white selection.
What if I'm traveling for a month or have wine piling up?
There's no commitment required, and members are free to start and stop at any frequency they choose.
How do you choose the wines?
We've been playing Tourist in our backyard for the last six years, working with nearly 90 producers to release over 140 wines. We've built an amazing network, are always bringing in new partners, and love finding value in lesser known grapes from off the beaten path places.
What if I don't like a selection?
Let us know! We so value your feedback, and we'll get you something else more suited to your tastes. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We don't. We partner with two new producers each month. We buy finished wine from them, get it in bottle, and release it to the membership under our label. But we do take pride in letting you know where your wine is coming from!
Why do the wineries work with you?
Wineries work with us for a whole host of reasons. Most producers carry inventory, and we offer a quick way for them to bring in some cash flow and free up cellar space. Some producers work with us on an annual basis, and working with us at the fruit contracting stage helps them achieve savings through the increased quantities. Others like what we do and want to get their name out to a new crowd!
What if I like a wine and want to buy more of it?
Stay tuned for our Library Collection, but in the meantime, feel free to send an email to email@example.com and we'll get you set up (inventory permitting)!
It speaks to what we do! Though I've learned so much in running this business, my knowledge pales in comparison to the folks actually farming the land and making the wines.
I love the unpretentiousness of the Tourist, the eagerness with which they are embarking upon the unknown. Wine should be enjoyed with the same joie de vivre, not knowing where the next turn might lead you, open to new tastes and experiences.
