Wine Club FAQ

  • The following cities and towns in Southern Maine: Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Cumberland Center, Cumberland Foreside, Falmouth, Ocean Park, Old Orchard, Portland, Saco, Scarborough, South Portland, Westbrook, and Yarmouth.

  • The major differences are that the Explorer Club receives tasting notes and food pairing suggestions and there is no customization. We’ll specially curate 12 wines each month for the Explorer Club, 6 whites, and 6 reds—those will have tasting notes and food pairings suggestions. The Cuvée Club is all about customization with access to our entire wine cellar on a monthly basis but without the tasting notes and food pairing suggestions. If you want to include some of the month’s Explorer Club wines in your customized monthly selection as well, we’ll certainly include the tasting notes and pairing suggestions for those wines based on availability.

  • Explorer Level = Sommelier-curated wines that will introduce you to different grape varieties, styles, and regions from around the world. These wines deliver incredible value and do not need to be further aged to taste their best.

    Elevated Level = Sommelier-curated wines with incredible merit, complexity, long finish, balance, and distinction. We have tasted many fine wines recently and have chosen only those that we think are remarkable. In many cases, we have purchased the whole lot. Some we are cellaring to be released in years to come, and some are so rare and so highly sought after with wide-ranging prices and cellar release dates.

  • We'll reach out to you each month to have a conversation to determine your needs, wine preferences, and budget for the month's wine order of 6 or more bottles. We'll keep your card on file to process your custom order each month. The number of bottles (minimum of 6) and styles of wines can change from month to month.

  • We are not permitted to ship wine.

  • If you are in one of our Explorer clubs and want to switch to a different explorer level club (e.g., Explorer 3 Reds to Explorer 6 Reds), simply log into your account, cancel your subscription, and subscribe to the new club type.

    If you are an Explorer Club and want to switch to Cuvée 6+, reach out to us, and we will help facilitate that.

    If you are a Cuvée 6+ Club member and want to switch to the Explorer Club, reach out to us, and we will help facilitate that.

  • Exactly on the same day of the month that you originally subscribed. So if you subscribe on the second day of the month, it will be the second day of each month that the payment will be processed.

  • We deliver only to the cities and towns listed. If you live or work in any of the cities and towns listed, we can deliver to you. If your delivery address is different than your billing address, please make sure that we have a clear understanding of the delivery address and that it is in our delivery area.

  • Reach out to us as soon as possible, and we will see if we have another delivery in your area or if it makes more sense to combine with your next month's club delivery.

  • Our wine club delivery area includes more cities and towns than our other delivery services. It's a perk of the wine club!

  • Yes! You are welcome to add on any of our wine sets and/or order a custom selection of any wines that we have in inventory. The wines we provide are often in very limited supply and are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and are always available to our wine club members first.

  • Log-in to your Wine Wise account to make any changes.

  • Not at all. We have some customers that are only in our delivery area in the Summer months and are members during that time. You can cancel your subscription anytime by logging into your Wine Wise account on the website.

  • Not at this time. But you can switch your club anytime. And we do offer a mix of reds and whites in our Explorer 6 Club.

  • Yes, you can get rosés as part of the Cuvée 6+ club because it is completely customizable to your tastes and preferences on a monthly basis.

  • Explorer 6 and Cuvée 6+ Members with continuous membership January-June and/or July-December will be invited to attend our Semi-Annual Soirée in June and December, respectively. If you were not a 6-bottle member for the full 6-month window, we can catch you up!
