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.
VDLT offers mostly small production wines from artisan European winemakers. Our Community provides wonderful opportunities to interact with these producers and other wine lovers.
You can purchase these wines in a variety of ways:
• VDLT Direct our innovative program delivering wines straight from the winery to you in just a few weeks. Available in most US states and the EU.
• From our cellar - in stock wines for immediate delivery*
• A Quarterly Wine Plan to receive a variety of distinct wines 4 times/year
*Free shipping to most states in Continental US on orders of at least $150
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
