The Classics Collection is a monthly selection of wines and spirits from the world’s most prestigious, sought-after estates and producers, offered to us in limited allocations. The wines for this program are sourced through regularly scheduled submissions tender. The collection is available for purchase online or by phone on a first-come, first-served basis and is supported by a bi-monthly catalogue (print and online) featuring two collections at a time. Select stores can draw the residual inventory of a catalogue after online program ends.
The Bordeaux Futures program has been offered annually since the 1989 vintage. Vintages has fostered strong relationships with major Bordeaux négociants and producers that allow us to secure a comprehensive en primeur assortment, particularly in high-demand vintages when competition is at its fiercest. Each year Vintages offers customers a broad selection of the finest cru classé wines, including First Growths and such Right Bank luminaries as Pétrus, Cheval Blanc and Ausone, that are sold to customers two years in advance of the wines’ release.
Throughout the year, Vintages partners with suppliers to offer small lots, rare and older vintages, and large formats to our customers, often direct from the producers’ cellars. The annual vintage release of wines of the Domaine Romanee Conti are offered through this channel. Other offers included rare and collectible sizes of the super-Tuscan icons from the cellars of Antinori, mature vintages of Dominus, and many others equally exiting portfolios. As these offers typically have greater demand than supply, products are allocated and the quantity per customer is limited. Select stores can draw the residual inventory of a catalogue after online program ends.
