Quirky local wine shop delivering a unique, high-quality selection of International wines, from an insider's perspective.
Finding a reliable selection of hard-to-find international wines is hard-to-do. These guys carry international wines with pedigree but not pedigreed price tags.
If they provided information about previous selections, and maybe tasting notes, we'd be pretty happy.
International wine clubs are a dime a dozen, but that's mostly because they make good business sense (cheaper imports can be sold for higher prices, especially in the western U.S.). This company is CALLED WineGlobe because they KNOW International wines. That makes this International Wine Club worth a lot more than just a dime.
The wine team at WineGlobe hails from around the world. In particular, the gentleman who runs the wine club portion of the business grew up in Languedoc, a prominent wine region in southern France. He's also lived in Italy and Spain (among other countries). Who better to select International wines for a wine club? We're willing to bet no other International Wine Club manager has that kind of hands-on experience.
Yay for you!
If you're looking to REALLY learn about international wine regions and wine-making styles, we recommend this wine club to get you started.
