I’m not sure if My Preferred Wines found me or I found them, but through social media, we connected, and I’ll be tasting a couple of their wines over the next few weeks and participating in a Twitter tasting next month. I love their concept and I’ve already discovered wines that I want to buy!
I asked the man behind My Preferred Wines, Galen Struwe, to share some information about this new website and he replied,
The site will be the premier, online wine store front for limited release and artisan wines. The wines will always be a great value. Oenophiles will find Napa Cabs and other reds in our store starting as low as $9.95 and reaching $70.00 for off-the-charts, delicious Oakville and Rutherford wines. Our different membership levels range from complimentary to Collector, always with our eye on presenting exceptional wines. We love winemakers in a big way. We love their stories, their passion, their reason for making wine. These are the things that wine drinkers love about them, too. My Preferred Wines is also a portal, a portal to share the joys of wine. Wine is inherently social. It makes us gab, it makes us open up and share who we are. We’ll have conversations with our winemakers so that our consumers can feel connected to them. Wine is fun, right?
