The Philosophy
That’s why we started 90+ Cellars.

It all started in the spring of 2009. Armed with a copy of the latest Wine Spectator, founder Kevin Mehra set out on a mission to bring higher quality wine to the market for a better price. He started calling wineries with a history of high ratings to ask if they had wine for sale. Some told him to get lost, but in the end, he found a handful of wineries that liked his concept. The plan was simple: we put their wine behind our label, and sell it for less.

But why would wineries want to do that?

You may recall that the economy wasn’t in the best shape in 2009. Demand for premium and luxury wines had plummeted and inventories were piling up. Rather than discount their wine and erode the value of their brand, we found that wineries were willing to part with a certain percentage of their production for a reduced price.

It was a win/win scenario. Wineries got to sell more wine, and consumers got access to better wine at lower prices.

The Wines!!
Russian River Chardonnay $15.99

Rated 92 Points by Beverage Tasting Institute.
Lot 130 is true Russian River Valley Chardonnay from one of the region's most respected producers. With just the right amount of oak, this wine is the perfect balance for those who love their Chardonnay with lots of California fruit, but not overbearing oak. 

Russian River Pinot Noir $19.99
Russian River Valley Pinot Noir from a top producer for under $20? It's no wonder this is our most popular Reserve wine! 
"Lot 75 Pinot Noir: An ideal companion to Thanksgiving dinner. Its earthy undertones play well with the flavors of turkey, cranberry, and stuffing, while highlighting heavier cream-based dishes like mashed potatoes and casseroles."  
- Thrillist.com (Best Wine for Thanksgiving)

Ironside Reserve Pinot Noir $22.99

14.0% ABV
If you are on a mission for bold, fruit-forward and impeccably smooth California Pinot Noir than you've found it! Fresh and full-bodied, this wine presents the best of both worlds. Mix in generous flavors of black cherries, plums and sweet spice and now you've got it made.

Ironside Cabernet Sauvignon $17.99

14.0% ABV
Lot 94 is our most popular Collector's Series wine. A full-bodied Napa Cab from highly-regarded vineyard sites in the distinguished Rutherford AVA. This is real deal Napa Cab at an incredible price.
Deep crimson in color with lavish aromas of black currant, mocha, and savory herbs with trailing notes of tobacco and vanilla. Full-bodied and well-rounded with soft edges and a lively dose of bright cherry fruit that unfolds into a smooth finish.

The Beers!!
Sierra Nevada Brut IPA 6 pack $11.99
6.2% ABV 25 IBU
This is our Brut IPA, a new take on IPA brewed for a bone dry champagne-style finish. Late hop additions give the beer balanced bitterness and a bright pop of citrus flavor. It’s as intriguing as it is drinkable.

Clown Shoes YeeHaaw New England IPA 4 pack $16.99

7.2% ABV 45 IBU
Clown Shoes Beer is celebrating its ninth anniversary with the release of Yeeehaaw! 9th Anniversary IPA, a New England-style IPA. Yeeehaaw! was brewed with Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic hops

Sixpoint Dabble Experimental Double IPA 6 pack $14.99

8.2% ABV 6 IBU
There’s nothing quite like your first taste. Hop farmers are breeding insane new flavors—one sip and you’ll be hooked. To truly harness these new flavors though, you’ve got to dabble a bit and test them out. The new hop blend blew our minds, so for DABBLE, we’re taking our experiment full scale with massive loads of hops so everyone can experience it. Sabro provides an incredible coconut note, Cashmere brings a soft, delicate complexity, and Idaho 7 brings potency and depth. Dip a toe in—dare to DABBLE.
