#5 Best Wine Clubs for Collectors List
We've never seen another Cult Wine Club. We've never even seen a Cult Wine in person. We think this is pretty neat.
We don't know what we love about this club. We're not the kind of people who buy Cult wines... but we do know we love Dean & DeLuca.
Nada. You can't compare this club to any other and who are we to tell Dean & DeLuca how to do something only they do?
The ONLY club of it’s kind that we’ve seen. Most people who are interested in cult wines are willing to shell out big bucks because the wine’s reputation exceeds any normal pricing and it becomes a capitalist’s dream where supply and demand determine the price of the wine. It’s hard for us to rate this wine club, except that you should expect the very best... better than most people have ever tasted or will ever taste. If you can afford this wine club and you or someone you really like loves wine, you should buy a subscription to quarterly wine club bliss... or at least delayed gratification because you’ve cellared what arrives in the mail.

There are three things Kerrin Laz, Cult Club manager is passionate about—great food, great beaches, and, of course, great wine. With all three, she says that it's the purity that she tends to seek out and enjoy. "I'd rather eat a great steak with a little salt and pepper than one coated with spices to hide the flaws of the meat," she said. "I'd rather go to a beach occupied by no one than by everyone. I'd rather drink a wine that is all about the quality than one that is all about the name."
She's well suited to manage, then, our Cult Club—which offers little-known and rare vintages to a handful of our best customers membership in our most exclusive club. This club is how to gain access to DEAN & DELUCA's worldwide holdings of the rarest and least available wines, some from perfectly stored private collections. You may not know the name now, but you'll never forget it.
THE CULT CLUB, offering our rarest wines. $1,000 a quarter, plus shipping.
