Hand Picked Selections Consumer Offer With 10% Discount

#1 Post by Dan Kravitz »

Hand Picked Selections was founded in 1985 to bring consumers uncommonly good wines at fair prices. Our portfolio includes acclaimed growers from famous places, and many gems from less familiar growers, regions, and grapes. We have grown steadily for 35 years, and remain hard at work in spite of tariffs and the pandemic.

Finding treasures from lesser-known growers and places is a joy, and a primary reason for the business. These wines belong in the cellars and hands of passionate wine lovers. Our newest venture is to bring them directly to consumers. This venture is Hand Picked Selections, Limited.

Initially, we will make one or two offers a month. All wines are purchased directly from the farmers who grew and bottled the wines. Some have earned acclaim from wine writers. Others have rarely been exported or written up. In each case, we believe these wines to be of fine quality, distinctive character and excellent value. Please allow us to send you our offers.

We are extending a special offer to the Wine Beserkers community: sign up for our mailing list by 12/31/2020 and receive a promo code for 10% off your first order (note: discount code to be sent in early January once signup period ends)!
Our first offer, to launch soon, will be the Immortal Chablis of Duplessis.

About 25 years ago, Revue du Vin de France wrote an article titled The Immortal Chablis of Gerard Duplessis, tasting wines from 1947 through the early 1990s. Robert Parker asked me if Gerard would send samples to reproduce the tasting. Wines from 1953-1991 arrived.

Except for a 1970 with a bad cork everything showed perfectly. Gerard’s son Lilian has been managing this 24 acre domaine for the past 20 years, and the wines remain reference points for classically-styled, age-worthy Chablis.

Thank you for your interest and please stay tuned.

If I'm reading this right, the offer for 10% off will show up after the first offer ends, and the first offer hasn't been sent out yet - he's just telling us what it will be.

Thanks Max, I thought based on the above that a first offer may have come out already.

Yea, I initially thought that too, but caught this line on the second read-through: "Our first offer, to launch soon, will be the Immortal Chablis of Duplessis."

First of all, many many thanks to all who read and signed up.

The first offer will be released about mid-January, sorry if I was not clear in my initial post.

I will write more tomorrow.

Thank you again.

Hello All,

Again my thanks!

We will send out the discount code by Friday, January 8th. It will apply to your first order, whether or not you order off of our first offering.

The first offering will be sent out before the end of January. I hope to have it out by mid-month, but also want to make sure that everything is right, so I'm leaving wiggle room.

Best regards,


Dan Kravitz
