This Wine Club That Gives You Access To Michelin-Starred Restaurants’ Favorite Wines Is Hosting a Massive One-Day Sale
For over a century, The Michelin Guide has been the preeminent judge of the quality of fine restaurants around the world. After all those years, we think it’s safe to say they also know a thing or two about wine. Now thanks to Wine Access, an online marketplace for expertly curated wines, you can shop a selection of Michelin favorites, and the prices are shockingly reasonable! Wine Access partnered with the sommeliers and tastemakers at multiple Michelin-starred restaurants to curate this special collection, so you can 100 percent be sure that every wine included is a winner. And the best part? In honor of National Wine Day (May 23), they’re hosting an epic one-day-only sale where you can snag 12 percent off sitewide!
Prices start at just $20 for a bottle of 2018 Cab Franc from the Loire Valley “that costs half as much as it should” or a bright and fresh Chardonnay from LIOCO Winery in California. If you’re looking for something really special the collection also includes rare wines such as a 2009 Ribera del Duero from Spanish winery Único which, reportedly, is in such high demand that even the British Embassy couldn’t secure enough bottles for a royal dinner for Queen Elizabeth II. There are also plenty of mid-range options, including a crisp Riesling ($47) with notes of white peach, Asian pear, and lemongrass served at the Michelin-starred SoHo restaurant Pinch Chinese. There’s even a sharp and lively sake ($35), direct from Japan.
Other Michelin-starred restaurants who collaborated on this special collection include New York’s Per Se, D.C.’s Bresca, and Californios in San Francisco. You can purchase wines à la carte online to get a Michelin-starred experience at home or sign up for a limited-edition subscription. The subscription gets you five seasonal shipments throughout the year with four bottles handpicked by sommeliers at a rotating roster of Michelin-starred temples of cuisine. You’ll also receive recipes for recommended pairings as well as special access to rare wines and 10 percent off all Wine Access purchases. Subscriptions start at $160 (including shipping) but spots are limited, so you may want to reserve yours now if you’re at all intrigued!
