8 Reasons To Buy Your Wine From Wine Access 

1. Wine Access unlocks access to wines typically reserved for industry insiders and Michelin-star restaurants

We know the right people in the wine industry. Vintners at unmapped wineries in unexpected regions, who bottle the best wines in the world. Industry insiders know them and so do Michelin-star restaurants. And now, so do you.

2. The Master Wine Team tastes over 20,000 of the world's best bottles every year

Our wine team consists of some of America’s top wine professionals who have decades of experience judging international wine competitions. Each member of our team personally visits with producers to learn more about the wines, wineries, and winemakers.

3. Every bottle must exceed the expectations defined by its price

Our Master Wine Team tastes thousands of the world’s best bottles every year, blind to cost, to create a catalog of wines that all exceed the expectations defined by their price.

4. Every bottle has a story

Discovering an extraordinary wine means investing yourself in its past, its present and its future. Knowing the grapes, the land, the vintner. Knowing its age, its body, its complements. Knowing how all that changes over the years. We’re committed to giving you access to a bottle’s full story — tasting notes, suggested pairings, flavor profiles and more — so you can explore as deeply as you wish.

5. Your wine arrives in the same condition it left the winery

Our weather controlled shipping system uses detailed weather data on a zip by zip basis to ensure the wine you order is shipped at the perfect temperature and you can be there when it arrives to pick it up.

6. Any bottle you don't love is on the house

A wine's story isn't complete until the bottle is empty. Meaning everything we do is all-for-nothing if you don’t love how your wine tastes — if the experience of drinking it isn’t extraordinary. Our Napa based client services team is here to guarantee an extraordinary experience for you. And any bottle you don't love is on the house!
