The finest wines in the world, at all price points, are made in surprisingly small lots. Every day, WineAccess presents one wine – a few hundred cases of the very best – for delivery right to your door.
Sometimes we find the wines directly from importers. But mostly, we do it ourselves, going right to the best vineyards and cellars, direct to the source.
Is there a house style? Yes. All wines must have rich, clean fruit flavors. But they must have enough mineral backbone to balance the richness. Almost all are delicious on release, but they must also improve with age.

Region: France > Rhone > Other Rhone
Grape type: Rhone Blend
Deepest purple to the rim, infused with chiseled aromas of black and red fruits, dark plum, sweet spice, and tobacco. Rich, voluminous, and voluptuous on the attack, packed with gobs of crushed-red-fruit preserves, licorice, and sweet spice, finishing — as always with Vignon — with superb length and persistence. Drink now for its sheer primary-fruit Hedonism, or far better, do as we will and wait to pop a cork until sometime in 2020.

Region: France > Champagne
Grape type: Champagne Blend
It's that time again. This lot of Delavenne Grand Cru Brut Rosé Champagne was disgorged specially for WineAccess in early September. Salmon-pink in color. Fine bubbles and refined effervescent persistence. Piercing aromas of wild strawberries, cassis, and kirsch. Broad and juicy on the attack, infused with blood orange, white peach, and rose petals. As always, wonderfully refreshing and vibrant on the finish, with superb length and precision.
$60/bottle on release. Just $39.99 on WineAccess. Shipping included on 4. P.S. Happy New Year — in advance. read more »

Region: New Zealand
Grape type: Sauvignon Blanc
The 2014 Te Mania Sauvignon Blanc is pale golden to the rim, with piercing mineral aromas of Williams pear and granny-smith apple, with just a hint of anise. Utterly mouthwatering on the attack, jam-packed with Apple and quince, framed by bracing acidity. This is one Kiwi Sauvignon that can hold it's own against any on the US Market.
The lion's share of the entire American allocation has been earmarked for WineAccess. Suggested retail is $30 — just like Cloudy Bay. But we've never been much good at taking suggestions. Just $16.99 (!!) on today's direct import. read more »
Region: Spain > Other Spain
Grape type: Red Blend
Deep purple to the rim, infused with luscious high-toned aromas of crushed black and red fruits and sweet spice. Rich, juicy, and dense yet full of Left Bank polish, packed with a plush mix of black raspberry, blackberry, dark cherry, and violets, finishing with unusually silken tannins, arguing gracefully for a 3-to-5-year rest in a cool cellar.
91 points from Parker's Wine Advocate. $25 on release. Just $16.99 today for the most sophisticated Spanish bargain of the year on WineAccess. Shipping included on 6. read more »
Region: Argentina > Mendoza
Grape type: Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep purple/black to the rim, infused with plush Rutherford-like aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, and mountain blueberry, tinged with new-wood cedar. Rich, but without the often-cloying sweetness of many Mendoza Cabernets.
The 2013 Antucura walked away from Decanter Magazine's exhaustive Argentine wine competition with a Gold Medal and a 95-point review — repeating the shocking performance of the estate's 2012.
