A special invitation to be among the first Americans to reserve your own supply of a dark, red wine found only in the remote foothills of the Andes Mountains

“Pop open this bottle of rare red wine…and experience the world’s last wild frontier up at 9,000 feet…where cowboys still sleep under the stars using their saddle bags as pillows…where women work looms under the early dawn’s first light…where the nearest city is six-hours away across a jagged mountain landscape…where heaven and earth seem to become one…” – Will Bonner

But Before YOU Say ‘Yes’…Here’s Why This Exclusive Invitation Might Not Be for You…

Dear Fellow Wine Lover,

The contents of this message are rather time-sensitive… so I’ll get straight to the point…

Right now, a shipment of a rare foreign wine is on its way to a port in California…

…from there I’d like to send a bottle right to your house, making you one of the first Americans to own and sample this wine – one of the highest altitude wines in the world.

Every so often a critic discovers this wine and raves about it. Entire vintages can sell out in 24 hours.

Up until now you had to either be very rich – or know someone very rich – to ever sample it for yourself. You can’t even get it at the finest restaurant in Manhattan!

On the rare occasion wines like this do make it to the US, a single bottle can go for over $500!

That’s because this intense red wine is made only in a remote series of valleys in the foothills of the Andes mountains… the most isolated winemaking region in the world…

…where a type of old French vine – long extinct in Europe – clings to the edge of survival…

..and in the process produces a one-of-a-kind wine.

A land 5,000 miles away

I’m not an expert mind you. I’m not even a wine importer.

I’m just a guy who, over the years, had grown flat out bored, unimpressed, and bummed out by just about every wine in my local store!

But when I first watched that inky, near-black liquid fill my glass…

…when those aromas of leather, dark cherry and scorched earth drifted across my nose…

…when those notes of fresh blackberry and licorice caressed my palate, along with warm, full bodied tannins…

Well I couldn’t go back to those same old flimsy retail wines… you know the kind where you can practically taste the “oak extract” the winemaker dumped in there to trick you and me into thinking it’s worth the $40 we paid for it!

(And that’s not the half of what modern winemakers are doing to fool us about their wines… The modern vineyard looks like an oil refinery for a reason… more on that in a moment…)

The wine I’m about to share with you is made with hand-picked grapes fed with snowmelt water that trickles down from some of the tallest peaks on Earth…

…past sleeping cowboys on cattle drives using their saddle bags as pillows…

…past women working looms in the early dawn’s first light

…through jagged rocks and wide open plains…

to a land where a small brotherhood of winemakers continue a tradition dating back 500 years… and produce a dark red wine – so opaque it’s called ‘black wine’ – at some of the highest altitudes in the world.

The world’s last frontier…

As I said earlier, it is usually very hard (and expensive) to sample – no less own – this wine.

Today, I’d like you to join me in being among the first Americans to claim your very own supply.

However, before we go further, I do need to tell you: most people won’t be a great fit for the opportunity I’m about to share (even if they claim they like wine)…

So I do want to give you the chance to bow out now… no hard feelings… by explaining 4 reasons that this opportunity might not be for you

(No, none of them have to do with money… this is actually a great value…)

Reason Number 1: Mass Market Wines from California and Australia Suit You Just Fine

Now I have nothing against cheap wine…

But the problem with mass market wines is that they can come with some dirty secrets…

First, the vineyards aren’t your traditional old world vineyards… there are no gnarled fruit trees offering shade to the old vigneron as he carefully prunes his vines… tasting a grape every few minutes to see how they’re coming along…

These industrial vineyards stretch out for acres and acres… planted in rows wide enough for giant pesticide sprayers and machine harvesters to pass through…

Like a chicken farm, the operators take no chances when it comes to their profit margin.

Is this the new reality of modern wine making?

The grapes are often overwatered to artificially fatten them up (more juice = more money).

At the first hint of bad weather, they harvest the grapes still green… and later cover it up by adding more sugar during fermentation.

(A lot of those popular wines from California and Australia you find on kitchen counters are notoriously sugary – even if they cleverly use acids and tannins to hide the sweet taste)

Compare that to the kind of wineries that operate up in the shadow of the Andes mountains… 

…where there simply isn’t space for massive machines or bulk wine production… where techniques are passed down from father to son… where grapes are still handpicked and sorted… then hauled along dusty paths… hours from the nearest paved road.

The ‘old’ way of winemaking

Of course you can’t run a bulk wine operation that way… you’d go broke.

But the advantage of those old ways becomes obvious when it comes to flavor…

Only in this century have we seen the hard-earned knowledge of the ancients discarded, almost overnight, in the name of progress… [Winemakers] feel secure with a sterile wine. I say if it is sterile is not alive.” – Best-selling author and wine expert Kermit Lynch

You see, factory wines are often run through a centrifuge … just like NASA does to astronauts to see if they can withstand the G-forces of space flight…

They do that partly because machine harvesters aren’t precise enough to grab only the grapes… so the resulting grape juice will contain bits of twigs, leaves, dirt, and even insects…

They then run the wine through “micropore” filters to remove any trace of sediment…

It’s a sterile, safe way to make wine… but the sediment is precisely what contains those special aromas, unique to each vineyard, that we all seek in our wine…

As French winemaker Jean Marie Ponsot explains: “you gain clarity…but you lose flavor and taste.”

Or, as famous wine critic Robert Parker puts it:

“Anyone who tells you that excessive…filtration does not damage wine is either a fool or a liar.”

(Especially true for Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays… they get destroyed by this)

Reason Number 2: Chemicals in Your Wine
Don’t Bother You

As I said before, there’s a reason that modern wineries look more like oil refineries than the old “chateaux” behind legendary wines like Lafite or LaTour…

…Modern industrial winemaking is all about meeting ever growing demand…any which way you can…

When they can’t afford oak barrels… they used oak “flavoring” and other additives

When the wine isn’t dark enough… they add purple dye called “Mega Purple” (far more common than you think)

When the wine comes out cloudy with sediment from the soil and air… they use “fining agents” like potassium ferrocyanide (yes “-cyanide”)

When the aroma’s not “big” enough… they add enzymes

When it’s too flimsy or sugary… they add acids (which destroy any subtlety in flavor)

And that’s not including the chemicals that find their way into wine from the industrial growing process…

Would you drink wine made here?

Did you know that a 2013 study from France found traces of pesticides in 90% of wines sold in supermarkets?

And a lab test of 10 Californian wines found the weed-killer glyphosate in every single bottle (the World Health Organization recently determined that glyphosate, the main ingredient in RoundUp, may potentially promote cancer).

You can see why the alcohol industry fights tooth and nail to keep ingredients off of labels, spending as much as $30 million for lobbying last year.

They’ve stripped out all the challenge… the richness… and variety of wine… everything that makes a bottle burst with life! (then they’ve added a lot of stuff that you don’t want)

And if that doesn’t bother you… then fair enough…

But I want more from my wine… and I don’t just mean that I want it without chemicals and dyes… Good wine should feel alive…like it’s got a story to tell… and an adventure in every bottle…

Those Who Don’t Love Adventure Need Not Apply…

 And that’s the third reason that this club simply won’t be for everyone… you really do need a sense of adventure to truly appreciate this opportunity…

A visit to the high desert valleys where they make this dark, red wine starts with a 15-hour flight to Buenos Aires from the US…

From there, an old Ford Falcon from the 1970s takes you across town to another airport for a bumpy plane ride to Argentina’s Northwestern frontier… into what can only be described as the world’s last wild frontier…

 

The World’s Last Wild Frontier

Up into the mountains…

Argentina’s western frontier remains almost as wild and unconquered as it was back when the Spanish discovered it 500 years ago…which is probably why it attracts such a motley assortment of “frontiersmen…nuts…rebels and eccentrics” as journalist Ian Mount once described them…

Spend any amount of time up in these regions and you’ll doubtless come across some disgraced heir to a European fortune drinking his troubles away…

…the descendent of a famous Civil War general running a small hotel (who surprises you with a thick Southern drawl)…

…cowboys with thick wads of coca leaves stuffed in their cheeks (coca is the plant cocaine is made from)…

…descendants of old native tribes never completely conquered during the Indian wars…

…land barons… political bosses…

From here, the true adventure begins… you put your pick-up truck in four-wheel drive and set out on a 6-hour trek (if the roads haven’t been washed in a flash flood out of course)

After ascending into the mountains, you reach a plateau far above the clouds…

From there the road continues on through an alien landscape like a roiling sea frozen in time…

(and you’ll be glad to have a couple spare tires in the back)

After six to eight hours, you finally reach the literal “end of the road”…
And a ranch known as the “legendary” Gualfin…

It was here that I came to discover a small brotherhood of winemakers… and the most isolated, extreme altitude winemaking tradition on earth…

Wines from the End of the World

My name, by the way, is Will Bonner.

Just a few years ago I didn’t know much about wine.

I liked wine…but I very seldom tasted wine that had a real taste of terroir…that felt unique… like it had a story to tell..

Most of the wines I drank were the dull, lifeless stuff from my local supermarket… made without passion (but with additives!)

All that changed one day in 2006, when I got a strange message from my father.

My father, Bill, is… to put it mildly… not your average kind of guy.

He’s in his 70s and still spends every weekend working on his farm: mending wooden fences, repairing the old stone buildings, keeping the fields orderly.

…that’s when he’s not traveling the world for his highly successful publishing business of course… or writing a book… or playing Johnny Cash on the guitar…

Dad with his cattle

I can’t remember the last time he missed a day of work… or got seriously ill…

So when I get a message from him that he’d found something special in Argentina…and that we should buy it…

…I knew I was in for an adventure.

It turned out that that “something special” was a ranch the size of Rhode Island called Gualfin.

Trouble was…it was located in the Calchaqui Valley, a frontier land way out on Argentina’s northwestern corridor… i.e. the middle of nowhere!

I had to use satellite imagery to look it up…

Gualfin

Go figure – “Gualfin” is an old Indian name for “end of the road.”

Still, Dad was adamant I come check it out…

When I got there (took me three days), I was swept away by the beauty of the place…

…and how it literally felt like the end of the Earth…

Initially, I figured we could raise cattle on it.

Dad and I soon discovered that it was far too dry and remote to sustain much of a cattle or farming operation…

But riding across the property one day, we came to a small valley fed by a thin trickle of water snaking its way down from the mountains…

And there, gnarled and overgrown, was a long-forgotten vineyard of Malbec grapes planted by the previous owner as an experiment…

What we had discovered, right there on the ranch, was one of the highest altitude vineyards in the world… at over 8,000 feet…

… and a unique microclimate found nowhere else on Earth.

 The Hidden Vineyard at Gualfin – 8,421 feet above the world

Let me take a moment and describe just what it is that makes this region so special for growing wine grapes…

If you talk to wine growers, they’ll tell you: poor soils make for great wine.

And the soil here is awful. Entire years might pass without more than five inches of rain.

But soil alone doesn’t tell the full story…

The Secret to a Great Wine

Journey through this vast landscape… and you’ll hear gale-force winds ripping through nearby poplar trees… before they nearly blow you off your horse…

You’ll find yourself suddenly short of breath in this thin atmosphere… (the locals claim the winds “drive away the oxygen”… and eventually you start to believe it!)

Despite being in direct sunlight, you’ll wear long sleeves and pants… to protect from the intense UV rays (the sun here is 80% more intense than Bordeaux)

At night, the temperature will suddenly drop down as much as 77 degrees!

Now imagine those little grapes in their little valley… protected only by leaves and some nearby fruit trees…

Winemakers, they say, like their grapes to get a bit of challenge.

But here, they cling to the edge of survival.

It’s so extreme here that vineyards yield one third what they should…

…for making money, it’s a losing proposition…

…especially given the near-total lack of modern machinery and the fact that the nearest port is about 1,000 miles away…

…but this extreme hardship is also the secret that produces a one of a kind wine… with great flavor… and an inky color so concentrated it turns even stainless steel bright red!

What happens is that the temperature swings put the grapes into hibernation at night, retaining nutrients that would otherwise be consumed.

The intense sunlight, cold, and wind force the grapes to grow thick skin with high concentrations of polyphenols like resveratrol, the powerful anti-oxidant that prevents free radicals from damaging your cells… possibly protecting you from things like cancer… as well as dementia…

(Although testing has not yet been done, polyphenol levels in this wine could be more than 10 TIMES that of other wines.)

These wines are also some of the purest wines you’ll ever drink.

Extreme-altitude growing conditions have virtually zero pests and fungus. The higher you go, the less you need to coat your vines with antifungals and pesticides (as is necessary in wet regions like Bordeaux and Champagne).

Long Extinct in Europe, an Old Malbec Vine Lives on Here

Not all grapes could survive these conditions.

But when Malbec was introduced about one hundred and fifty years ago, it was if the grape had finally found its true home.

A good thing too…because after Malbec vines arrived in Argentina, all the European Malbec got wiped out (along with most of Europe’s grapes) in an event called the “The Great Blight.”

In fact, the European wine industry was only able to recover by replanting with vines from America (immune to the blight).

So when people talk about great French wines today… they’re not actually French at all! They’re American!

But the blight never touched the remote, isolated wineries of Argentina.

Today, the old French vines remain there today…much older than any you’ll find in Bordeaux.

A Wine 200 Years in the Making

After discovering the hidden vineyard at Gualfin, my father and I did some asking around to see if anyone in the area knew how to make wine…

What we found surprised us:

A small brotherhood of winemakers that has been toiling away in near obscurity for centuries now… on some of the highest vineyards in the world…

There’s a saying among vignerons in France: “a great wine is an expression, not just of terroir, but of the character of the man who made it.”

By that measure…the wines we discovered in the Calchaqui must be some of the greatest in the world.

The first winemaker we met happened to be our “closest” neighbor (a mere hour’s drive) – a man named Raul Davalos.

His family is the oldest winemaking family in the area. They crossed the Andes with vines from France and created the first high altitude winery here nearly 200 years ago!

They’ve been here ever since, quietly working away at their bodega, Tacuil, using traditions passed down from father to son over generations…

Raul and his sons

Every few years a critic comes across their wines and gives them a rave review. Famed Wine Advocate critic Robert Parker has given the Davalos multiple 90+ ratings, near the top of his rating system!

Of course up here, almost completely cut off from the outside world, points don’t mean much.

When I mentioned Parker to Raul, he simply gave a polite shrug…then, with a satisfied smile, opened up a bottle of wine… “Robert loved this one. I don’t usually make it available to Americans…”

The wine in question, made with indigenous yeasts and ZERO oak, is called Mayuco

Out at the edge of the valley, there is a small stream. The water comes tumbling down from the mountains…many thousands of feet…purifying the water without removing its nutrients.

The hidden valley of Tacuil

That stream is called Mayuco – an old Indian name for water.

“My family has been here 200 years,” told us Raul. “This wine, Mayuco, is the pure expression of the land. The dust of the high desert. The smoke from our fires. The leather of our saddles. The air so thin you can hardly breathe. The fields of alfalfa swaying in the big winds. It is here in this wine.”

The high desert

As the young members of Raul’s family set out to make their way in life… travelling to Buenos Aires or New York… they can take this wine with them. All they need do is pop a cork… and suddenly they are home.

Tacuil

How Robert Parker found Raul all the way out here I still have no idea.

But like him, I was left thinking about this wine for a long while afterwards… its intensity… its power… but also its delicate herbal notes… a slight touch of pepper not unlike a tomato leaf… a hint of chocolate too…

Not being a wine expert myself, on a subsequent visit I brought along my friend Julien Miquel – a Bordeaux vintner who has made wines all over the world including at the world-famous Chateau Margaux.

Me and Julien (on the left) tasting wines

Julien confirmed that I had, indeed, come across something special… His palate being more developed than mine, he also detected aromas of violet and mint in the nose… a bit of lemon on the palate hiding underneath the layers of chocolate and salivating tannins…

He wrote later: “The perfect example of a generous Malbec: powerful fruit and great texture. Yet, its origin from vineyards of extreme altitude has added a rare vibrancy and freshness to its fruity expression. Pair it with a steak dinner for the full effect.”

Mayuco – the spirit of the valley

I was glad he approved… as I already had several cases en route to a port in California, making me one of the first Americans to ever bring this wine to the US… I’ll give you the details on that in a moment…

But first, I need to tell you about the other wine – even higher in altitude – I discovered in the Calchaqui Valley…

About three and half hours to the north of Gualfin, a vineyard at nearly 9,000 feet supplies the grapes for a malbec called Sunal Illogico, by winemaker Augustin Lanus.

Augustin Lanus’ Luracatao

The vineyard is called Luracatao and sits on a northerly slope completely surrounded by mountains.

The surrounding rocks soak up the heat, protecting the vines from freezing at night.

Augustin walking the vineyard after harvest

Augustin tells us that after making Sunal for the first time, he was surprised to see that the inky red color had actually managed to turn his stainless-steel vats bright red!

And not just that – after tasting Sunal, Augustin was surprised to find notes that you don’t tend to find in other malbecs – black olive, violet, graphite, and blackberry.

When we tasted it ourselves, we even found a hint of saltiness… and scorched earth…possibly a product of ancient oceans that once covered this land millions of years ago…

Sunal is naturally fermented with ZERO filtration, then aged in old French oak (no fake oak additives) for a year, followed by new French oak for another year.

A brilliant, intense wine

Like Mayuco, this wine is NOT available at your local supermarket or even that nearby fine wine shop.

And if you’re curious about why that is… here’s why…

Most Argentine wines you find in the US come from Mendoza. It’s a beautiful area, but one far to the south of the Calchaqui Valley…

…and one far lower in altitude.

And that’s the key. For large scale importers, the isolation and elevation of the Calchaqui simply make it impossible to acquire the kind of volume they would need to turn a profit.

If you can get a mass market winery built right next to the highway to load 100,000 bottles onto a semi-truck for a quick 3 hour jaunt to the nearest port…why bother with a vineyard 6 hours from the nearest town, with no paved roads around…that only produces 5,000 bottles a year?

That’s how you wind up with dull, lifeless wines full of additives at your local supermarket… while real wines – pure, unfiltered, traditionally made – struggle to reach our shores at all. (And cost a lot of money when they do!)

But recently, I found a work-around… a way for you and me to be among the first Americans to own and sample these amazing extreme altitude wines (without spending an arm and a leg either)…

Mayuco…Sunal…plus four more bottles I’ll show you right now…

Your Bottle of Puramun Reserva Malbec 2014 (95 pts)

In 2010, Argentina’s “most important winemaker” Pepe Galante walked away from the legendary Catena winery after 34 years at the helm. (Catena regularly gets 90+ points from critics).

As it turned out, he was leaving to do something special: to handcraft his first personal, 100% family-owned wine, Puramun. (Only 4,000 cases a year.)

The wine has received rave reviews from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (92 pts) and wine competition judge Tim Atkin (95 pts), who praised its “elegant…subtle spices, well integrated oak and silky, palate-caressing tannins.” 

 

Your Bottle of Lagarde Guarda, Cabernet Franc 2015

You can find some of the oldest vines in Argentina at Lagarde. Century-old vines planted by the winery’s founder still produce grapes today.

Their secret? Lagarde’s cool, stony soils happen to be in a prime spot for receiving nutrients purified by their 5,000-foot descent in ice melt from the surrounding mountaintops. Made using indigenous yeast, this Cab Franc is not widely available in the US. Yet, the word may already be getting out. Queries for this wine have shot up 610% in the past year alone!

Your Bottle of Mendel Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (93 pts)

Family-owned winery Mendel – est. 1928 – has not gotten a point score below 89 in the past 10 years. Their Cab Sauv, perhaps Mendoza’s most elegant wine, explains why.

Winemaker is none other than Roberto de la Mota, the man behind the ultra-premium Cheval des Andes, made in partnership with Bordeaux’s Cheval Blanc. At Mendel, Roberto puts his unmatched know-how to work on vines steeped in history. Tim Atkins: 92 pts. James Suckling: 93 pts. Enjoy with a sharp cheese and wild mushrooms.

Your Bottle of Valle de la Puerta Gran Reserva, Malbec/Syrah/Bonarda 2014

The ancient Incan valley of Famatina is nestled between Salta and Mendoza. Here, the La Puerta winery produces a big, yet approachable wine by blending Malbec (60%), Syrah (23%), and Bonarda (17%) – the three strongest grapes for Argentina’s soil.

The result is a smoky flavor with a touch of red berry. “Gran Reserva” means small batch production and high quality. The logo is an ancient glyph of a puma, sacred to “Diaguita” people who once warred with the Inca in these same fields. 

 

Six Delicious Argentine Wines… including Mayuco and Sunal…
Shipped Straight to Your Door

As I write this, I have a few hundred cases of these wines crossed in the Andes Mountains. Likely by the time you read it, they’ll have arrived in port.

When they do, I’d like to ship six of these bottles, straight to your door…all I ask is a small favor.

After getting back to the US, I kept thinking about those isolated valleys…and distant peaks… and those winemakers toiling in near total obscurity… making very little money… living off the land…

But most of all I kept thinking about the wines…

That’s when I had an idea:

I figured… if I could just get enough people together to fill a whole shipping container with wine…then we’d be able to bring these fantastic wines to America… many for the first time ever!

And that’s exactly what I did.

I assembled a group of friends, including…

  • Diego Samper, a full-time “wine explorer” to do the legwork of making deals
  • Barry Gilbert, a private wine importer in California
  • Julien Miquel, a retired winemaker from France’s most famous winery

And so was born the Bonner Private Wine Partnership.

It’s sort of a “club”.. only it’s unlike any club you’ve ever belonged to.

The idea is that by bringing together like-minded private wine lovers, we can bypass the entire modern industry of bad bulk wines and inflated prices… and import these great wines ourselves!

The moment I announced the Partnership, the spots filled up almost immediately. People were loving what we were doing

“Thanks to you guys I can no longer enjoy any wines from the local liquor store. I’m officially a wine snob and it’s your fault! I am a big fan…thanks for putting all of this together.” – John B.

“Thank you for making the wines available to us. Not dealing with middle men is a relief.” – Clive R.

“You’re crushing it. Pun intended. Amazing. Great finds and so affordable.” – Matt T.

It was actually a little overwhelming. After all, we were really just a group of friends. So I shut down membership, hired a couple logistics guys, made a deal with Diego and Barry to seek out wines full time, and starting filling that second shipping container with more wines.

And today we’re officially ready for another round of members to join…

So if the idea of sampling complex, intriguing wines excites you…then do me this favor and join us. We can’t import these wines privately without fellow wine lovers like you.

When you do join, you’ll receive the six high altitude wines I’ve just told you – Mayuco and Sunal – shipped straight to your door.

Here’s how it works:

All year round, Diego, Barry, and me scour the globe for great wine and making deals directly with vineyards… mostly small batch places just like Tacuil and Luracatao…

As you might assume, this is incredibly time consuming.

Winemakers can be extremely wary of foreigners (especially yankees). They want you to come visit… they want to observe how you taste wine… whether your palate is right… they ask you to long lunches where business is absolutely not to be discussed…

That’s why the Bonner Private Wine Partnership is not one of those monthly wine clubs that just bombard you with bad wine until you cancel…

The Bonner Private Wine Partnership puts out shipments just four times a year (every quarter) directly to your doorstep.

You may be wondering:

“Will this partnership only be importing Argentine wines?”

Not at all.

The introductory selection will feature six wines from small wineries in Argentina – including some of the highest altitude wines in the world.

But my team and I have already located some astounding wines in Italy, Spain, and France…and we’re already gearing up for next quarter’s shipment… it should be really special.

You may also be wondering:

But this partnership must be only for those who can spend $500 a case…”

Nope, not by a long shot.

And that brings me to the final reason that some people receiving this invitation – even if they say they love wine – simply won’t be a good fit:

Reason Number 4: You Believe that Quality Wine Must Be Expensive

It’s tempting to think that a $100 wine must be good…

But would you like to guess how much of that $100 actually went into the winemaking process?

About $20. That’s it.

The rest? Marketing costs and something known as the “3-tier system.”

This is the 3-tier system:

  1. Grape growers sell bulk juice to wineries who then slap their own label on it.
  2. Wineries sell the wine to distributors (or if the wine is imported, tack on another step and another middle man).
  3. Retailers and restaurants buy the wine from the distributor and then resell it to you at a big mark-up with sales tax added on.

Every tier has to make a profit… that’s how you get to $100… it’s no guarantee of quality.

In fact, it can often be a sign of a “sterile, safe” wine like I mentioned earlier…

For example, not long ago, I was at a dinner party… we pulled out a bottle of California Cab from a very well-regarded vineyard… this a $100+ bottle of wine mind you…

…and it tasted… like nothing… The guests may as well have been drinking water.

All the life had been sucked out of it by modern winemaking techniques like something invented at Dow Chemical…

Meanwhile, the wines I’m sharing with you today will cost you a lot less than $100 a bottle – A LOT less – and they’re positively bursting with flavor and life!

You see, because the Bonner Private Wine Partnership buys directly from the vineyards, it cuts that three-tier system out of the equation.

The Partnership also never “pays for the label” as they say. The wineries they seek tend to be known only to locals or a handful of critics…

So instead of charging $60… $90… even $120 a bottle like many wine importers would….

…members don’t even pay half that per bottle!

But here’s the catch… to make all this possible, I need to get enough interested wine lovers to fill that shipping container…

And I wanted to give you first right to claim one of our open spots.

Of course, these spots are limited. So it will have to be first come, first served.

(HERE’S A TIP: If you’d like to “beat the crowd” and skip ahead, just scroll down to the end of this message and click on the BIG ORANGE BUTTON… you’ll be able to review pricing and your offer on the next page…)

When you join today, you can be among the first to reserve your own collection of the best, little-known wines from Argentina… including your high altitude bottles of 2017 Mayuco and 2016 Sunal Illogico (8,950 ft)…

These high altitude wines are incredibly hard to find in the US… which is why I’ve seen a single bottle of high altitude Malbec go for over $500…

And actually, prices for these wines may creep up over the long term. You see, due to their intensity, high altitude wines can be stored to ripen and mature for long periods of time.

But Argentina doesn’t have a culture of long term wine storage… so there aren’t a ton of vintage bottles to be found…

This is a really great opportunity to secure something really special for your cellar…

Remember: once all these bottles have been claimed, there is no guarantee new spots will open up.

I don’t say that to try and create a false sense of urgency… it’s just that there simply isn’t enough wine for everyone…

This isn’t a problem for most wine clubs. Because a lot of clubs are really just an excuse to sell you bulk wine. The club buys bulk juice, slaps a cool looking label on it, then ships it off to you in the cheapest packaging they can afford.

There’s a reason those clubs have steep drop off rates.

With the Bonner Private Wine Partnership, if it’s not something we would drink…then we don’t expect you to drink it either.

But the club isn’t just about drinking wine either… it’s about adding new adventures and dimensions to your life!

You won’t just taste good wine… you’ll learn about wine… and develop a new appreciation for wine…

So, while you wait for your collection, you’ll receive two special, exclusive e-books, written especially for club members by top international sommelier, Nigel Tollerman.

Nigel is a certified sommelier from Argentina’s top Escuela Argentina de Sommeliers. He has appeared on the Food Network and National Geographic.

I think you’ll find these e-books both fun to read and highly educating…

As a member of the Bonner Private Wine Partnership… they’re yours FREE to read and access the instant you sign up…

You’ll also receive a tasting video with retired winemaker and sommelier Julien Miquel.

Julien has made wines all over the world, including at Chateau Margaux, perhaps the most famous winery in France.

He’ll take you through a virtual tasting for three of your wines making you an expert in Argentine wine by the time your bottles arrive.

Okay, so how much is a quarterly membership to the Bonner Private Wine Partnership going to cost?

Well, I’ve seen bottles of a certain high-altitude wine being sold for as much as $598 for a single bottle (that would be over $3,000 for a collection of six!)…

(which is crazy because that certain wine actually has lower point scores than other bottles included in your collection)

But you won’t spend several thousand dollars here… you won’t pay $450… or even $300…

You’ll pay just $199 for your first quarter with the club (shipping is on us!)

Here’s everything you’ll receive today:

Altogether that’s a value of at least $390…if not much more… for just $199…

Your 100% Money Back Guarantee 

(and no, you don’t have to send back the wine)

If you don’t love your Argentine wines, you have 30 days to request a refund.

And you don’t even have to send the remaining bottles back.

Yes, you could drink every single bottle and ask for a refund. There’s no way we’d be able to tell.

But we’re confident that you’ll love what you get and want to stick around for more!

After your $199 introductory shipment, subsequent shipments will be billed at our normal fee of $249… but there is NO obligation. We will let you know when your bottles are ready to ship and you can cancel at any time!

So…interested in sampling great wine at zero risk?

Well if you’re still reading, I’m going to take a wild guess that the answer is “YES!”

Here’s what your box will look like:

You’ll find a booklet welcoming you to the club with tasting notes for each wine.

When you ‘pop’ open your first bottle… take a minute to let those first notes of campfire and leather drift across your nose…

…and let the journey begin…

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How Often Does the Club Send Out Wine?

We send out collections of six bottles four times a year, once a quarter. We will notify you before sending you the wine. Please note that each shipment is billed separately. This way you can cancel anytime and not get stuck with any wine you don’t want.

Am I Locked in For a Full Year?

No! Your membership is billed quarterly. We send you a notification before shipping your wine each quarter. You can cancel at any time. We don’t want you getting stuck with anything you don’t want. Please note, that after your first discounted fee, your quarterly fee will re-adjust to $249. But again – there’s no obligation to get a second shipment if you don’t want to. Simply cancel any time.

Tell Me About the Team

Will Bonner is an entrepreneur, author, and the founder of the Bonner Private Wine Partnership. His family “accidentally” got into the wine business about a decade ago when his father, Bill, bought an isolated mountain ranch with one of the highest altitude vineyards in the world. Will figured that there were probably other small wineries putting out great wines that most people had probably never heard of. So, he founded the partnership to bring these wines to your doorstep.

Diego Samper is the Partnership’s “wine explorer.” He puts his boots on the ground to make deals with vineyards and bring you great wine.

Barry Gilbert is a former tech executive and Vice Chairman of Sharper Image. After retiring, Barry’s passion for wine led him to create WineVIP, an importer and distributor that allows Americans to own foreign wines at “cellar prices.” He knows the ins and outs of shipping to ensure that wines arrive tasting just as they did in the cellar.

Julien Miquel is a former winemaker from Bordeaux. He has made wines all over the world from Spain to California, including at the famous Chateau Margaux. He is the founder of the award-winning site Social Vignerons.

How Much Does A Membership Cost?

Usually our membership costs $249 a quarter. However, your first quarter shipment – including your collection of Argentine wines – will cost just $199. On top of that, our refund policy guarantees that you’ll love what you receive or we’ll simply give you a full refund (and the wine is yours to keep).

After your first quarter, subsequent shipments will be billed at the regular price of $249. However, we will notify you before shipping and you can cancel at any time. You are not locked in. We don’t want to charge you for wine that you won’t drink.

Tell Me About Your Refund Policy Again

As part of your introductory, first quarter offer, you will have 30 days to request a 100% refund. And you can keep the wine, our gift to you for giving us a try.

On subsequent shipments, we also offer a 100% refund but you must mail back the wine to us (with corks intact). Otherwise, only a 50% refund will be issued. We do this for business reasons. The potential liability would otherwise be too great for a small club like ours.

But you can avoid any hassle at all by simply canceling before we send a shipment to you. We’ll notify you when we’re preparing it and you can give us a call any time to cancel.
