90+ Cellars!
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.
Our company and industry has changed quite a bit since we launched; but our mission and our ability to offer great wine for a great price has not. With our Wine Director, Brett Vankoski, we continue to seek out the best opportunities in the market and turn those into great values in the bottle for you.
Today, 90+ Cellars is one of the fastest growing wine brands in America. We are a modern day négociant – working with acclaimed wineries and vineyards to curate a portfolio of fine wines from all over the globe. We do this because we love great wine, and we want to make drinking great wine easier and more affordable for you. 

The Wines!!
La Cle De La Femme (the Key to a Woman), Sparkling Brut, NV $39.99
One of the few wines in the shop that we all think is excellent!!
Clear, light straw yellow with tiny persistent bubbles. Perfectly  balanced, fresh Macintosh apple skin opening up to buttery tarte and gooseberry.  Slight sweetness balanced by clean acidity. Well integrated, ripe fruit (dew melon), almond and delicate orange blossom. 
Biscuity honey finish with a lingering sweetness yet fresh!

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.
Cenas Beaujolais $16.99
A soulful Cru Beaujolais for an unbeatable price.
An absolutely delicious Gamay wine from the northern part of Beaujolais, just to the south of Burgundy.
Fun, fruity and exceptionally food-friendly with fresh red berry and floral notes.
"This easy-drinking French red can be served chilled as an apéritif (and is exceptionally food-friendly)
thanks to its low tannin content and fruity flavor."

Russian River Pinot Noir $19.99

This Pinot Noir is made from berries hand-picked from vines scattered about the lush hills and cool valleys of Sonoma's Russian River. In this blissful landscape dotted with lofty redwoods between which morning fog slithers, precious grapes are collected and brought to the winery where they are fermented and aged for nine months in French and American oak barrels. This is no ordinary Pinot Noir. 
Pensively purple in color and alluringly scented with marvelous aromas of juicy black cherry fruit, cocoa and ginger backed by lurking notes of cardamom and violets. The wine's flavors are boldly expressive and distinctly stacked upon one another as if they were painted by Rothko.

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon $22.99

A seductive, full-bodied Cabernet overflowing with dense dark fruit and pure Alexander Valley goodness.
Voted one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon wines of 2019 by Beverage Dynamics - 92 Points

Steely dark berry in color with luscious aromas of blackcurrant and cherries on top of indulgent scents of mocha, vanilla and cedar.
Take a sip and prepare for your mouth to be swaddled in a full-bodied embrace.
This is a Cabernet that dishes out lip-smacking affection with every sip.
ABV 15.0%

The Beers!!

Evolution Blurred Vines, Hazy IPA, 4 pack $15.99
7.2% ABV, 0 IBU
Amarillo, Simcoe, and Azacca hops make this hazy IPA extra juicy while oats and wheat give it a pillowy softness.
Dry-hopped for big notes of tropical hop flavors.

Sierra Nevada Celebration Fresh Hopped IPA, 6 pack $11.99
The start of Celebration season is a festive event. Once the first fresh hops arrive from harvest, the party begins! We first brewed Celebration in 1981, blazing the path for American-style IPAs and offering a new take on holiday beers, which are often spiced and sweet. Famous for its citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada.

“One of the true classics.” – Paste Magazine

Solace Brewing Blue Duck IPA, 4 pack $16.99

ABV: 5%
Brewed with Ekuanot and Amarillo hops. Big pineapple and grapefruit aromas with a touch of lemon.
Just enough resinous pine flavor to balance the citrus and a slightly bitter finish. It’s quacktastic!
