I would guess that you are thinking, “Why is this guy doing this, and what makes this wine site any different than all the others ?” Let me try to explain the “why” and the “what” for you.
After my many years of visiting and tasting wines throughout the Pacific Northwest, I came to realize that you, the buyer out there, either with wine experience or new to the experience, was being cheated. This was confirmed to me, whenever I purchased or tried to purchase wine “on-line” myself, either from here in the states, or abroad. OK, you go online, find a site that offers 100′s if not 1000′s of wines, red, white, sparkling, etc. You get a brief description of the wine, maybe, a “rating” usually in “points”, and a price.
Now, unless you are looking for a specific wine, you are basicly just taking a chance that the wines you order will be good, based on the very, limited information you find on that site.
I bring you wines from Vineyard Wineries, that I have researched, met the owners and Vitners, and have tasted multiple times myself. I get random opinions from consumers in the tasting rooms, as well at the many shows in the Pacific Northwest. I give you “Video Tastings” of each wine I select to put on my e-Commerce website, in some cases from exotic destination travel sites, like Alaska, Canada, Lake Tahoe, etc. When I find a Winery that has the exceptional wines along with owners and staff that know their wines, and live for those grapes, I don’t just put all of their wines available on my site. I hand pick based on my research via my tastings, and others, which I will put on my site for you to chose from. I feel, that giving you a choice from the best selection, of in my opinion, are the best wines gives you along with all my information, a much better chance of purchasing wines that you will enjoy.
Another situation that I percieve as a problem in this industry, is the “handling” of quality wines. I ask this question often of Vitners, “How do you feel about your quality wines and the way they are handled by stores, disributor’s, ect ?” They all say the same thing, “I don’t like losing control of my wines”. What they are talking about is their quality wines, being held in warehouses without temperature control, on loading docks, in transport trucks, on shelves of local stores or in their warehouse. The bottom line is, if wine isn’t stored properly, temperture, humidity, low light,no vibrations, and so on, the wine will change. When you purchase it, there is no guarentee that it will taste as it should, like it does in that tasting room.
When you purchase a wine from A Wine To Die For, your wine is shipped directly from that winery and it’s temperature controlled environment, directly to your door. It is shipped via UPS or FED-X, both companies are excellent at handling that wine carefully and properly. They specialize in it !
And, when you purchase that wine from A Wine To Die For, you will alwas be paying the same price as you would in that tasting room, from that winery.
The wineries I select are most often but not exclusively smaller “Botique” wineries, ones that you probably would never hear about or get a chance to experience, unless you visited the Pacific Northwest. I do also have some rather well known wineries that I partner with, but let me say, you won’t find wines that are “mass produced” just to put on shelves of Cosco or your local grocery store shelves. Most often, the wines on my site are low volume productions, where the grapes are hand picked, and the employees and owners know everything about that grape production. There is love in every bottle I bring to you on this site.
So, please be confident that you can purchase quality wines, with as much knowledge that you can have, without actually being at that vineyard.
Be thirsty my friends, and “Cheers”,
