Bills Cellar Wine of May 2019


Seduce Reserve 2013

We are sharing Bill's latest personal cellar wine with you in this shipment. Bill decided to create this special reserve wine for his own personal cellar. Normally priced at $265 per bottle and limited to one bottle per wine club member, for this shipment we have reduced the price to $125 in place of your normal member discount.


Special Pricing Notification


We commit to our club members an average price per shipment. If we decide to include a more expensive wine we reduce its price to fit with our published average shipment price. Your club discount is then applied to the new lower price for the shipped wine. Once the club shipments are complete the wine reverts to its original price.

In this shipment the Amourette Chardonnay was lowered from $55 to $45 per bottle and the Tango Malbec was lowered from $85 to $65 per bottle then your club discount was applied to the lower price.
