Stelvio Monument Club : by Craig Lewis

SHIPPED ONCE EVERY QUARTER - 12 pack case for $599.00 (plus shipping and applicable tax)

The allied culture of professional cycling and wine!

JOIN THIS CLUB

"Monuments—There's only five of these races a year.  They define a cyclist much like wines define a place."

For a professional like Craig Lewis, the Monuments are generally considered to be the most-prestigious one-day races on the calendar. The oldest dates back to 1892. While the wines in the Stelvio Monument Club will not date back to the 19th century, the prominence and importance of the selections will match the prestige of a first place finish.

If you are looking to experience reference point wines, capable of both an amazing level of pop and pour satisfaction or aging potential in your cellar, this club should have your attention.  

Quarterly shipments for this club will include twelve bottles.  Similar to the Classics Club, the vast level of renowned and respected regions covered will be impressive.  Additionally, the premier selections will make a statement in your growing collection.
