Each year Winexpert releases five super-premium kits from the world’s great wine regions that are not part of the company’s regular portfolio.


These kits are available only on a pre-order basis. Each kit yields six gallons of wine which translates into thirty 750 ml bottles.


Just a reminder that we must receive pre-orders by Thursday, November 12, 2020, either by phone (616-453-9674), email (steve@sicilianosmkt.com) or in person at Siciliano's.
