Regular orders can be amended based on your personal preferences.

These award-winning wines include Chardonnay, Malbec, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc, among others. By cutting out the middlemen, the company gets directly to the winemakers, developing an intimate connection to the wine shipped out to club members.

Membership Options

The first box is shipped almost immediately and you should receive it within a few days. You can then set the frequency for all subsequent orders. The company will ask you for feedback on the wines you received, and your input will be used to determine which wines to send you in the future.

Your next shipments will be 6 bottles each, and the recommendations will be based on feedback that you give the company. You can switch out any of the recommendations before they ship.

Featured Wines

Cantharos - 2014

It may sound like a supervillain set on world-domination, but this Grenache is one of the top offerings of a winery that has won 2 gold medals as “French Grenache Winery of the Year.” There are hints of herbs and spice in this Grenache, which Firstleaf says has a bouquet that brings to mind the very earliest origins of wine.

Cost per bottle: $16.80

Goes great with: A beefy winter stew, a braised pot roast with roasted carrots, a fireplace and a blanket.

Aromatherapy - 2016 Chenin Blanc

One of the great things about wine is that it hits you before it even touches your lips. The bouquet, the bottle, the way it cascades down the glass. This aptly-named Chenin Blanc has hints of fruity and floral notes, and at less than $20 a bottle, this is an hour of therapy anybody can afford.

Cost per bottle:$17.10

Goes great with: Grilled fish with a healthy squeeze of lemon, chicken picatta, a Saturday afternoon in the late spring when you get that first hint that summer’s on its way.

Isolde's Rapture - 2016 red blend

We’ll be honest, we selected this one because the bottle is so cool. Seriously, there’s a lot happening on this label. It turns out it’s also a double gold medal winning 95 point red blend. So maybe you should just judge a bottle by its label—sometimes.

Cost per bottle: $20

Goes great with: Barbecued steaks on the patio while you wait for the rapture (we mean another glass of this wine).

Giving the Gift of Wine

With Firstlead you can easily buy an E-Gift card on the company website. They run in increments of $25, $50, $75, $100, $150, and $200. Couldn’t be easier.
