VDLT was created with the vision of offering great wine and building a community of wine lovers and winemakers who share experiences - making us feel like we've picked the grapes for the wine in our glass.
Greg (the Guru) and Chief combined have over 50 years experience exploring European wine regions and building wonderful relationships with generations of incredible winemakers.
Most of our selections are limited production wines from great European regions and often hard to find in the U.S. You can choose:
• VDLT Direct for wines delivered straight from the winery to you in just a few weeks
• From our cellar - in stock wines for immediate delivery
• A Quarterly Wine Plan to receive a variety of distinct wines 4 times/year
• Pre-arrival purchases to ensure you get the wines you want
Free shipping in Continental US on orders of at least $150 from our cellar
Chief and Guru taste with the winemakers and approve every wine offered. There are many factors that go into deciding which treasures from our hunts will become wines offered to the VDLT Wine Community: Special Wine Producers, Terroir, Taste, Distinction and Value.Read More
