Changing the way you experience wine

Video Introduction
  • Watch the recap of our tasting event at Katz's Deli in NYC

Your exclusive, personal wine hunters...

Greg and Chief combined have over 50 years experience exploring European wine regions and building wonderful relationships with generations of winemakers. They do it because they love their friendships with these artisan farmers... and because the wines are incredible.


VDLT was created with the vision of not just selling great wine, but building a community of wine lovers - beginners and experts - who create experiences together that make us feel like we've picked the grapes that made the wine in our glass.

We bring the winemakers to you

The winemakers love to visit us. We've had tasting events here Philipe Colin, Christine Dubreuil, Philipe Drouhin and Nathalie Fevre from Burgundy and Alexis Pichon from the Rhône among many others at venues like Pietro’s, Bouley, La Cremelliere, Grifone, Great Horse Country Club and Chief’s Manhattan penthouse.

And if the winemakers can't make the trip across the pond, we go there to bring our members great videos like the one shown here, where we experience the harvest at Champagne Maillart.

We bring you to the vineyard

We've arranged private tours for our members to meet and taste with wine producers in Burgundy, the Rhône Valley and Champagne. We continue to organize tours to those regions as well as Tuscany, Champagne, Piedmont and the Loire Valley. 

Our learning never stops

Members enjoy events with renowned wine experts like Allen "Burghound" Meadows who is widely considered to be the foremost authority on the wines of Burgundy. We've had the pleasure of hosting Burghound 3 times at our events.

Our own "Guru" Greg Kramer is passionate about wine and sharing his knowledge. Our newsletter and blog are filled with information designed to improve your experience of the wines that we offer.

Live life, it's the greatest game ever invented

This is the spirit that we foster in our community through experience and participation.
