The Inaugural Box for the Wine Club

Welp, I've been talking about this wine club, and as I just finished putting together the bulk of a container that should leave near the end of this month with two of my wines, I figured that this would be the perfect time to do the first box. If you have had any of my wines, you get an idea of the quality of what I pick, and for some who've had some of the other wines I have been hiding, you also know what's up. (Check out our Instagram @ikavinawine or do a search against #ikavinewine).

In any case, I've got immediate access to a bunch of wines from a new set of producers that I am working with; they like me and see something. Don't worry, I'm still working with my current ones for what I have as y'all know that the Bakhita and Aether are fire!

So, I'm looking at adding four more wines -- hopefully, we can hurry up and get the Triune into this container (prayers) but some of you will also be getting a bottle of this wine anyway; those who helped out on the Kiva loan -- to complete this inaugural box. I can easily choose from Piemonte or Emilia-Romagna, and there are several great reds for me to pull upon (they want me to work with their Barbera d'Asti [and they have a superiore version] and also a passito of theirs, the latter would easily retail for $45, so if I throw it in, you know it's a steal). The total cost is $110 which includes the packaging, but the not the shipping (more on that later). I am also creating a double order option for $190 because depending upon where you might live, factoring in shipping, it might just be more economical, and/or then again you might just want a double order.

And right now, I can tell you what will be in the six pack and the twelve pack (twelve pack extra bottles will vary)

    Six pack
  • Afeni (new wine which is a sweet sparkling rose)
  • Ansa (new wine which is a fruity white sparkling)
  • Barbera d'Asti DOCG
  • Terri Alfieri Arneis DOC (white wine)
  • Chardonnay/Pinot Noir Brut sparkling wine
  • Cabernet Sauvignon (Emilia-Romagna) or Sweet Sparkling Malvasia
    Twelve Pack
  • Afeni (new wine which is a sweet sparkling rose) 2 bottles
  • Ansa (new wine which is a fruity white sparkling) 2 bottles
  • Barbera d'Asti DOCG 2 bottles
  • Terri Alfieri Arneis DOC (white wine)
  • Chardonnay/Pinot Noir Brut sparkling wine
  • Cabernet Sauvignon (Emilia-Romagna)
  • Sweet Sparkling Malvasia
  • Malvasia Passito (500ml) or Gutturnio Classico Riserva (Bonarda/Barbera blend) - some folks might receive both
  • Ny choice of what other bottle to do two of.

And before you ask, some folks might want to do group purchases and receive a discount. I could do that, but would need to work it out in advance. Just email me at wineclub@ikavina.com.

Anyway, as I am in the process of launching a completely separate website for all of my wines [and the wine club] but realized that I have about ten days to act on this -- put whatever other wines in this container before it is closed and put on a ship -- I said what the hell and realized I might as well put the offer out now. This is just for the wines, as your shipping will be tallied separately; UPS is changing its rates but I still have a locked down rate through one shipper of mine for now. And as many of you are already customers, I know you're of legal age. In any case, it's just a matter of whether or not I will be adding one mixed pallet of the remaining four wines to the container, or more than that. Also, feel free to share this with other folks you think that might be interested.

As far as timing, in general it takes about 21 days for a ship to travel from Italy to the Ports of New York and New Jersey. Once a container clears Customs and is picked up, it takes just a day for it to get from the port to the warehouse I use. From there, I then take the time to package orders and then they get delivered to my shipper who ships them out. Oh yeah, I have to pay them at the time, but I can estimate shipping for each person and just send each person an invoice for their shipping via PayPal.
