While Macy’s Wine Cellar doesn’t have the largest selection of wines, it certainly has a decent variety. If you are anything less than a real international connoisseur, the selection will probably be enough. Macy’s Wine Cellar offers reds, whites,and champagnes with a variety of varietals like cabernet sauvignon, malbec, merlot, pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot grigio, riesling, and sauvignon blanc. Wines hail from several regions throughout the US, France, Italy, and Spain.
Macy's Wine Cellar offers two membership options, the standard membership and the Reserve Club. The standard membership costs $89 a year, and you get free unlimited shipping.

Macy's Wine Cellar will select 15 bottles that fit beautifully into four different categories, Italian Treasure, Luxurious Mix, Sumptuous Reds, and Fine Bordeaux for just $199.99.
