You’ve had the experience or heard the stories about those magical wines
tasted in tiny villages on European vacations. The joy of the memory is outdone only by the frustration of not being able to find the wine at home.
We have them for you. Not only that, we’ll bring you right back to the vineyard (literally) or bring the winemaker to you.
Take a few minutes to learn about our community and we're sure that you'll want to join.
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.
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.
A member visiting Burgundy
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.
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.
