Finally there is a wine club featuring New York wines. Bacchus Wine & Spirits along with the Times Union and the New York Cork Report have joined together and launched the Times Union New York Wine Club. Not only will this wine club feature only New York wines, but proceeds from the wine club will go to benefit the Times Union’s Classroom Enrichment Program. Through this program, nearly 500 teachers from 274 Capital Region schools receive newspapers and other learning tools at no charge.
Lenn Thompson, editor of the New York Cork Report will be selecting the wines. The wine club will feature two levels. Your standard level that is priced at $29.99 plus plus shipping and handling and is perfect for someone looking to set a budget for their monthly wine spending, someone who has never joined a wine club before, or someone interested in introducing themself to New York wines. The Premier Level will have a variable cost per month, but includes award-winning wines found from throughout the State. This level is perfect for the wine connoisseur.

I do hope to see some Hudson Valley wines included in a shipment or two.
