In my spare time (generally between the hours of midnight and 2AM) I do a little copy editing for Alice Feiring’s newsletter, The Feiring Line, which is devoted to ‘natural’ wines and the people who make them. Some of these wines are not so easy to find, no matter where you are. So we launched a long-discussed monthly Alice-picked wine club, the Feiring Line Wine Society. I’ll let her tell you all about it:
Here's a potential monthly surprise at your doorstep. As of right this moment, I announce the debut of The Feiring Line Wine Society. This is actually what is known as a wine club, but I really don't want to be clubby about it.
You can trust that the wines are all my totally subjective selections and driven by taste, not by marketing or margin. $75 a month gets you 2-4 bottles (and very occassionally one extremely special bottle) of what I consider winey adventures. Most months it will be three bottles, but I reserve the right to mix it up.
Maybe you’ll love them all, maybe you won’t, but you’ll be able to explore several of the discoveries I talk about in the newsletter and understand what I like and why I like it. The thing here is that I am only selling you wines I love, ones that I choose. For the most part these are wines that are limited edition, hard to find and not in most markets. -- Alice
What’s it cost: $75/month + tax + shipping
The Fine Print:
You are buying a monthly subscription to The Feiring Line Wine Society. We will contact you to confirm the month in which your club shipments will begin. Going forward, you will automatically be billed on the 5th of each month, $75 + any shipping* and taxes. If you would like to cancel your membership (but why would you want to do that?) just let us know by the 1st of the month.
The wines are generally ready for shipment or pick up mid-month and there are no substitutions... what Alice wants is what you get.
3 -and 6 -month options are also available with upfront billing for the full membership term.
Any questions, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll sort you out.
Free in-store pick up. Free delivery below Canal Street. $10 in Manhattan or Brooklyn. $15 anywhere else we can ship. Consolidated shipping is available at $5 for each additional month of wines sent. (e.g. if you ship three months worth of wine clubs to Ohio at one time, you will be charged $15 + $5 + $5 = $25.) If the weather is too hot or too cold to ship, we will let you know.
The actual shipping fees may or may not appear in your shopping cart. Our web cart is wonky that way. But we will sort it out and make sure you get a credit (or actually are charged) according to the above policies.
Select monthly, 3- or 6-Month Membership options. We've also listed some bottles from past months. You'll find a handful of lucky leftovers, as well other other bottlings from favorite winegrowers. Grab them while they're here!
