VDLT was created with the vision of offering great wine and building a community of wine lovers and winemakers who create experiences that make 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.
