Finding the best European wines at the best prices! EuroWineClub's Advisory Team is there to help Members and make it fun and exciting. Our purchasing service relies on a network of friends and collaborators located in different parts of Europe and elsewhere, fluent in several languages, with professional or connoisseur knowledge of wine appreciation and wine making. The Club will also support, promote and help small boutique-style producers from fabulous wine regions to export to the U.S.A., some of their limited production.
Each wine selected will be presented with basic and detailed information as well as tasting notes from the Club's sommelier. Technical scores are important when choosing and comparing notes with other professional tasters, and will be considered by the Club as a guide in the pre-selection process. Our connections with many European producers will help Members to receive on-going information on the evolution of the wines selected for their cellar.
As a Club, we will promote good behavior when consuming alcohol beverages. The regulation stipulates that you must be at least 21 years of age to purchase and receive orders for wine products in the states of Massachusetts, so we are asking that each member be at least 21 years of age to join the Club. This is to ensure that the Club is not involved in any way to help or promote the purchase of alcohol beverages by minors.
Also, to enjoy the full potential of those fabulous selections, we recommend that you follow these guidelines:
1. Always serve the wine at the recommended temperature;
2. Select the best type of glass for the wine;
3. If served with food, find a good matching partner;
4. Last but not least, always share it with good friends.
Our A-team will provide you with most of the necessary information to appreciate your wine so you won't have to look for it.
