Summary

This Special Selections wine club offers ultra-premium, red wines from California, Oregon, and Washington and offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Curated by a winemaker who finds out about great wines from other winemakers, not distributors. Who needs sommelier access when you've got winemaker access?

What We Like

We're quite impressed with most of the past selections from Uncorked Ventures, especially as they include some of our favorite West Coast wine-growing regions. There's always a richness to the selections that sometimes is missing from other wine clubs.

Improvements

We know Mark at Uncorked Ventures is fixated on making wine and finding great wine to ship out to his loyal members, but we'd love to see the website updated regularly with past shipment information and an introductory offer.

Looking for something you’ll never experience somewhere else? This could be the wine club for you.

There’s so little information available on the Uncorked Ventures website that we engaged in a lengthy email discussion with the owners to get a better sense of what this wine club is all about. And we’re SO glad we did. You know how wine-lovers are often on the hunt for the rare-find or the hidden-gem? Well we think Uncorked Ventures is the hidden-gem among wine clubs.

“Our Special Selections Club is the one where we show more impressive bottles simply in terms of score.” But there are also special unrated wines going out in this wine club... like first vintages of wines from amazing winemakers and new releases on wines that sold out the year before. When we took a look at their list of “Big Scores” though, we knew immediately that this is an excellent wine club. We’ve tasted wine at Alta Colina (each wine was a new joyous experience and some were even sublime), we’ve had wines from K Vintners and others from the Wahluke Slope in Washington State while visiting Walla Walla, and Garys’ Vineyard (as in, Gary Pisoni) has been producing fantastic top-rated wines for more than 10 years. We KNOW these are excellent wines and we’re looking forward to see what Uncorked Ventures turns up next!

If this hasn’t convinced you why you want to choose this wine club, you should also know that Uncorked Ventures will honor any reasonable request one could ask of their wine club. This essentially means unparalleled customization options to suit your needs.
