Buying and selecting the right wine is a daunting task to many. But with wine being such a pivotal addition to so many occasions in our social lives (host gifts, birthday presents, dinner parties, park picnics…the list goes on!), relying solely on your personal preference, a well-branded label or what you’ve “heard” is good, can put a lot of pressure on a simple task.
To avoid uncertainty, or worse, ending in disappointment, we suggest signing up for the new female-founded, sommelier-led wine club, SALUTAY, giving you the opportunity to try new wines from small producers around the world, learn about what makes their wine unique and the best part, it is delivered right to your door.
SALUTAY, which launched last week, is a quarterly wine club started by sommelier, Taylor Grant, who comes from years of experience at some of the best hospitality groups in Los Angeles with accolades such as Food & Wine’s Sommelier of the Year and roles as Sommelier at Osteria Mozza, Wine Director for Scopa Italian Roots, Old Lightning, Dama and Dudley Market.
The subscription-based wine club features small production wines with a focus on minimal intervention, organics, and sustainability from regions around the world. This approach allows Grant to share wines she has found (and loved) throughout her career and forge new relationships with up-and-coming winemakers, enthusiasts and collectors alike. For members, this means always staying in the know, exploring interesting varieties and further developing their palette.
SALUTAY’s members can choose from three-tier options that reﬂect their personality and lifestyle, while also considering their taste for adventurousness when it comes to wine!
The tiers include:
- Cin-Cin – for the adventurous type – always oﬀ the beaten path | 6 bottles for $165 quarterly ($55 per month)
- Kan Pai – mix of classic wines + new ﬁnds | 6 bottles for $165 quarterly ($55 per month)
- Prost – unique & rare- for the budding collector | 6 bottles for $240 quarterly ($80 per month) or 12 bottles for $477 quarterly ($159 per month)
Each wine club shipment, members receive corresponding info cards with tasting proﬁles and pairing suggestions to help them learn and grow in their own wine adventure.
Those looking to take their wine knowledge to the next level can opt for their additional oﬀerings including: Virtual Tastings, At Home Tastings and Private Cellar Services – which include an on-call sommelier, competitive retail pricing, concierge services and more.
I don’t know about you but we are diving right into our next wine adventure with SALUTAY!
