Drinking Buddies

Wine clubs come in as many varieties as vino itself, even in a state with arcane laws restricting both mail-order wine-of-the-month clubs and the availability of wines that are everyday in most of the world. Still, clubs of all sorts are great ways to try and to learn about wine and to share with others.

Oklahoma City’s Paseo Grill has launched a special program for wine lovers. With Vintages, guests can purchase fine wines at the best prices available in the market and store their selections in a newly built, 2,220-bottle wine cellar. Their wine steward is available to confer with guests about which wines to purchase. 405.601.1079.

Vintner’s Cellars VC Wine Club offers members fine wines made in Oklahoma from grapes imported from all around the world. Every two months, members receive two bottles of wine selected by their vintner, complete with notes and suggested food pairings. 405.359.9463. 

Tulsa Hills Wine Cellar is free to customers with some interesting benefits in addition to discounts, advance notice of special releases and access to invitation-only tastings and events.
