Got an oenophile friend, or perhaps you're one yourself? Then pop the cork for this news: Winestyr has expanded to Texas.
Unlike all other wine sites, Winestyr works directly with small wineries and cuts out traditional distributors and retailers. By cutting out the middlemen, Winestyr provides a curated offering of wines from over 100 of America's best small producers, and delivers them to members with preferred pricing and $0 shipping. The founders have personally tasted each and every wine they sell, delivering you the best selection of small-production wines possible and making them accessible to you in a whole new way.
Winestyr features more than 100 of the most unique and celebrated domestic wine producers, such as Scribe Winery, Rossi-Wallace, Buoncristiani Family Winery, Vineyard 36, Domaine de le Côte, Matthiasson, Channing Daughters, Smith Story Wine Cellars, Rôtie Cellars, Teutonic Wine Company, Sojourn Cellars, The Wonderland Project, and more. Have you ever heard of Evening Land Vineyards, Rotie Cellars, or Solminer Wine Co.? Probably not, but they've all received high accolades and you can now access their wines — and hundreds more — through Winestyr.
Join the club
You can purchase wine by the bottle from Winestyr, but the best way to indulge is by joining the wine club. The curated shipments — all reds, all whites, or mixed — give you access to a wide variety of small-production wineries; 24/7 access to expert wine advisors; the ability to repurchase your favorite wines from your shipment; $0 shipping on wine purchases; and exclusive access to special wines, discounts, and secret sales.
It's also the ideal time of year to think about gift-giving, whether that means a membership or box of handpicked wines. Winestyr's gift collections include luxurious packaging and the option to include a personalized gift note. You can choose from options such as "The Classy Thank You," "The Celebratory Duo," "The Napa Cab Trio," and more.
Founded with passion
Co-founders and childhood friends Bob Wilson, Scott Washburn, and John Wilson started Winestyr in Chicago in 2011 to create an online wine-buying experience that lived up to their standards of curation, transparency, and authenticity.
VP of wine and certified sommelier Will Whelan joined the Chicago-based Winestyr with one goal in mind: connect the best winemakers in the country directly with engaged and passionate wine drinkers. Whelan has traveled coast to coast, gaining wide-ranging experience as a cellar rat, retail shop buyer, sommelier, wine director, and distributor sales rep.
The result is better wine for you, at a great value, while also supporting America's small wineries.
