Uncorked Ventures

Uncorked Ventures

Uncorked Ventures is a relatively new wine club. It was started by two brothers-in-law in 2009. Mark Aselstine and Matt Krause got the idea for the club while vacationing in South America. They wanted to be able to bring rare but quality wines to the general public at prices that are affordable. The two travel the world to meet winemakers and learn about the production of wine so that they are able to have the connections they need to procure wines that their customers want and that they feel are up to their standards.

This company has a simple setup of just three wine clubs. All give you the option of either monthly or quarterly shipments. It also offers corporate giving plans and one time gift shipments.

Wine Exploration Club

The club for the more novice wine drinker, this includes a bottle each of red and white. You pay just $40 per shipment and you get to enjoy two new bottles of wine.

Special Selections

For the more discriminating wine drinker, the company offers this club, which features boutique wines from the West Coast: Oregon, California and Washington. Most shipments will include two bottles of red, but you will occasionally receive one bottle of red and one bottle of white. The price is $95 per shipment.

Reserve Selections

This club is similar to Special Selections, but it offers a higher class of wine. Members can expect the occasional signed bottle of wine or large format bottle. All of the wines selected for this club have cellaring potential, so they can be enjoyed both now or years down the road. The cost is $195 per shipment.
