Excellent Wine, Extraordinary Prices

As a VDLT member, you gain access to wines that are cherry-picked from small batch producers. How is that possible, you ask? During the last 25 years, our founder (Chief) has built lasting friendships and business relationships with winemakers during his never-ending quest for incredible wines. He and Mike Manuppelli (the sommelier at River Café) taste each wine at the wineries before offering it to members for purchase. And because of VDLT's unique business model, members save 25-40% off typical prices.

Buying program
  • Allen Meadows (Burghound) is widely considered to be the foremost authority on the wines of Burgundy. VDLT has hosted three events with Allen, including the one shown in this video (at Chief’s home).
