Uncork Your Mind

Debbie Gioquindo, CSW, WLS the Hudson Valley Wine Goddess takes the intimidation out of wine. This is a monthly podcast where I will speak with people in the wine industry, authors, and bloggers to education you on wine.

Nov 6, 2013

I was first intrigued with 90+ Cellars when I received a media sample from them this past summer.  I knew nothing about them but a gentleman named Dave who I shared a table with at a tasting enlightened me on the brand.  I thought it was brilliant! (You can read my post about the wine by clicking here.)

In this podcast I will introduce you to Brett Vankoski, Vice President and Co-Founder of 90+ Cellars and Jeannie Hanningan their Marketing Manager. Both have pretty amazing stories on what brought them all together.  Brett ditched the corporate life (took a break but never returned) to pursue a wine career and Jeannie answered an ad for an intern that later lead to a part time then full time position.

Premise behind their wine brand:

·         We are a global wine brand

·         They want to offer a great experience and a great bottle of wine for the customer

·         Special occasion wine priced that you can enjoy it any time.

·         Spend less without settling for less.

·         90+ Cellars looks for wine surplus from wineries that wine has been rated 90+.  They look for wineries also with a pedigree and tradition.

There wines are priced in three tiers:

·         $10-$14 where they have the greatest volume

·         $15-$20 their reserve wines

·         $20-$30 Collectors Series

They just launched a wine club so you won't miss out.  You can receive quarterly shipments in 6 or 12 bottles and the prices are quite reasonable at $90 for the 6 bottles and $170 for 12 bottles.  You can choose between all white, all red, or mixed.
