A few words from friends
"Over the years I have belonged to several wine clubs, but none of them matched the quality of wines and consistency of service as Celebrations Wine Club. I have remained a member for almost 15 years for this reason and because of the great flexibility in the kinds of wines I can buy from both Italy and California.
