Vineyard in France as the sun sets and someone pouring a glass of red wine

Nothing beats going to a French vineyard and enjoying a tasting, then taking home some delicious French wine to enjoy at leisure. But it’s not always possible to do that, especially if you’re in the US. Luckily for you, SomMailier wine club brings the very best boutique French wines direct to you. Delivered right to your doorstep.

SomMailier Wine Club USA

Laurent Yung of SomMailier Wine Club says that more than anything “wine producing is a love story between man and soil”. Growing up on a vineyard, in a 5th generation wine making family with vineyards in Bordeaux– his life is all about great wine.

If you love French wine it’s not always easy to find the best boutique wines in the US but that’s all changing. Laurent, who lives in San Diego, set up SomMailier to bring exclusive and hard to find artisan French wines to the USA. Through his family, he has built up a multitude of connections with boutique vineyards all over France. He knows the families, the landscape and the wine. SomMailier sources the very best boutique French wines, those you won’t find in a supermarket. Their wines are memorable, authentic and exquisite.

Great French wine in the USA

Bottle and glass of red wine plus a bottle and glass of white wine

The French have been making wine since the 6th century. “Two and a half millennia of French wine making is a lot of practice” says Laurent, but it also means that it’s not easy to pick from the huge choice that there is.

SomMailer takes all the stress out of making sure you enjoy the most delicious, but affordable French wines. They meet with local producers, source the wine and choose the best of the best. They then box it up and send it to their wine club members.

There are two membership plans: 3 bottles or 6 bottles sent to you every three months. Choose from red or white or a mixture of both. With your bottles you’ll get notes on the history of the wine, the maker and the area where it is produced. There’s no contract to sign, and no long term commitment. Although, once you’ve tried it you’ll be sure to stay.

Their members rave about the wines “SomMailier is exactly what we’ve been waiting for! Authentic French wine from small family vineyards delivered right to our home. We always love exploring California wines, but now SomMailier lets us discover an entirely new wine landscape.” Sergio D., CA

And their reputation is growing rapidly. Despite being a small company, they were shortlisted for the 2019 USA Today 10 Best Wine Club in the Readers Choice Awards, a huge achievement when you’re up against the big boys of wine!

As Laurent says “French wine enthusiasts don’t have to fly across the Atlantic to enjoy the finest wines from exclusive French vineyards. SomMailier does the heavy lifting by hand-selecting wines from around France and delivering them (in three or six bottle packages) to your door each quarter. Santé!”
