The Boutique Wine Club
Adventure. Exploration. Discovery. Artistry.
Our journey in curating the Spirit of Wine brings people together from all over the world to share in our collective love and passion for wine and everything that it represents.
For more than four decades, we have cultivated relationships with the most innovative winemakers in the world – and through these connections we have developed a circle of creativity; leading us to the most sophisticated, nuanced, and truly exceptional wines in the world.
Spirit of Wine shares our finds with enthusiasts across the U.S; exclusive, small production, bespoke wines that aren’t available through the normal distribution system.
The Essence of the Spirit of Wine
Quality winemaking is a lengthy process: it takes a decade to develop a vineyard and often several more years of unrivaled dedication and commitment to careful barrel and bottle aging to achieve a wine’s most unique character and potential.
Featured Winemaker Andy Schweiger
Schweiger Vineyards is the product of father/son wine-making team Fred & Andy Schweiger and their outstanding team of dedicated professionals. Their Proprietors, Fred & Sally Schweiger, have lived and worked on this land since the 1960s; it’s not uncommon for visitors to be welcomed by both in their tasting room. Their style of wine making comes from Fred’s passionate artisan vineyard methods, concentrated quality wine production and unique wine-making style reflective of their terroir.
This month the Schweigers are bringing their 2016 Chardonnay to the club. It is grown in their shadiest vineyard block they refer to as their U2 (upper two) acres on the 2,000 ft elevation ridge. These grapevines consistently yield golden berry clusters to give the wine notes of stone fruits and white peach throughout every vintage.
A Lifetime of Learning
Often referred to as “the PhD of Wine Academia,” the Master Sommelier title is the highest distinction a professional can obtain in the wine industry.
To become a Master Sommelier, students must pass a rigorous series of four examinations; the average candidate takes the final exam as many as six times. It takes years to prepare for, and a very small percentage of candidates who attempt it actually pass.
One of our experts, Eddie Osterland, was the very first American to earn the distinction. He has over 45 years of experience in the industry, contributing at the highest level to our community.
Central to our community is our team of accomplished Sommeliers who continually curate and hand-pick the wines that will be shipped to you each month.
Our core mission is to seek out the most passionate and talented winemakers and introduce you to their wines. From Cabs to Viognier, and everything in between, expect each to be balanced, nuanced, and true – it has to be a great wine, or it won’t make it into the club!
