Feiring Line Wine Society

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. Over the holidays, I convinced her to put together a long-discussed sampler pack of some of her favorites. It was a hit. Such a hit that she was convinced that a monthly Alice-picked wine club could be a success. So here it is, the introduction of the Feiring Line Wine Society. I’ll let her tell you all about it below.


Alice's Kosher Collection

Alice Feiring of the Feiring Line strikes again with her much needed, much requested selection of kosher wines for the upcoming high holidays. She's picked out some of her favorites and we've bundled them up into 6-Pack and 3-Pack versions.

A note from Alice:

alice w caption.jpgBrought up in an orthodox home, I have to make due with Kosher wines at holidays when I return to family. You think finding wines that are interesting and will increase my joy at the table is easy? So I gathered a few of my favorites, tried to find wines as natural as I could, and as terroir expressive as I could,  and bundled them up for you.  Save for the Champagne, all are non-meshuval, meaning they have not been pasteurized and all of them are actually dare I say, delicious.  I have never found the meshuval process for sparkling wine to be a problem, perhaps because it's a manipulated wine to begin with. But a  true kosher champagne is difficult to come by, and it's a nice treat. 

Anyway, Shana Tova, and happy drinking!

Drappier Carte d'Or Brut: Drappier was one of the first champagne houses to make a non-sulfur cuvee of champagne, did you know that? But even with sulfur, the wines are lovely and rick. Pierre Miodownick supervises this champagne blend of the three prime grapes, but heavy on the pinot noir. Really a joy.

Richie Harkham makes the Harkham Aziza Chardonnay in -- Hunter Valley Australia! Crazy, but he works naturally, no sulfur, and you might need to decant this rich cookie.

From Montsant, Capcanes Peraj Petita. Much more fresh and delicious than much of the powerful, big boys that come from that area. Can take age so if you keep it until next year, that works too.

And for kiddish after shul with perhaps a schtickle of herring, post-prandial or even when you come back from throwing your sins in the water? Go for Mahia. I wrote about the Yonkers-based couple who makes this fine fig-based eau de vie.  Shockingly fine.  It's based on his family recipe--from the old country of Morocco. Five pounds of dried figs and no added sugar go into every bottle, expertly distilled. On the rocks or straight up.


Please note all wines shipped via UPS will require an adult signature upon delivery. (Shipping rates and policies are here. Rates will generally range from $15 - $20 depending on your location.)

The Feiring Line Wine Society (a.k.a. A Wine Club)

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 about a year ago, 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 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. Shipping charges for your initial purchase WILL NOT appear in your shopping cart and we will contact you to confirm them.

3 -and 6 -month options are also available with upfront billing for the full membership term.

Any questions, send an email to christy@franklywines.com and we’ll sort you out.

*Shipping Fees:

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.
