The luxury world of wine is something elusive in itself for many people. There are quality wines that are crafted so exquisitely for the sake of quality, for celebration, for significance, and for connection. Wine is significant for any occasion and this revelation is what embodies the essence of the perfect glass poured from a bottle of luxury wine crafted at Hertelendy Vineyards.
Within the fine wine industry, no one is more knowledgeable than Ralph Hertelendy of Hertelendy Vineyards. His passion and care are unparalleled and his expertise fuels his business. Where many companies are diluted in their wine crafting, Ralph is involved every step of the way. This Old World approach, set through generations before him, is an art form that few can truly match.
In the heart of Napa Valley, tradition and soil meet to cultivate wine from the best grapes in the world. Taking the best elements from the earth, Hertelendy’s vitis vinifera stems come from the soil of Napa’s Vaca Mountain range, famous for its volcanic ash and granite-like subsoil. Hertelendy has implemented these tones into its wine production, giving its red wines their distinct and elegant taste. The clean pristine taste of Hertelendy’s Chardonnay is credited to the deep clay soil of the esteemed Russian River Valley.
Attention to detail and grape origin has given Hertelendy Vineyards the coveted rating of 99 points from some of the world’s most influential critics. Valuing quality and luxury over all, Hertelendy has set a new bar when approaching wine production. Yet wine quality is only a fraction of what it means to truly thrive within the wine industry. All too aware of this, Hertelendy has navigated wine culture in a way that brings a new definition to the term ‘wine club.’ Through tiered memberships and access to private vintages, Hertelendy continues to elevate the standards surrounding wine culture.
Patrons start on the path of becoming members as they accumulate points through wine purchases. Under the Lux loyalty program, wine lovers are granted access to specific benefits of club members. By opening this window of opportunity, Hertelendy offers a sip of the rewards that a membership with Hertelendy can provide.
The next level up is the Classic club membership. For patrons with a Classic membership, Hertelendy offers the best that the spring and winter seasons have to offer in six bottles, twice a year. With limited quantities of production wine, the Classic membership is the ideal gateway into the world of Hertelendy Vineyards. Geared with invitations to insider events like the annual harvest party, preferred pricings, and complimentary wine tastings, the Classic membership grants access to nearly all Hertelendy offerings.
Elite club membership takes the Hertelendy experience to the next—and highest—level. In addition to all the benefits of the Classic members, patrons of the Elite membership are invited to a new approach to wine. Enjoying twice the amount of wine, Elite members are granted access to exclusive wines, crafted in small, limited batches. Elite members are welcome to indulge in Hertelendy’s library of vintage and large format wines that are otherwise only available at charity auctions. Elite members will feel as if they have their fingers on the pulse of the wine industry.
Highlighting exclusivity, club membership is just one of the various ways Hertelendy strives for refinement and elegance to keep customers satisfied. As the wine market continues to boom with new wineries popping up seemingly every day, Hertelendy wine is like a diamond patiently developed over time. With a rich wine-making history going back as far as the eighteenth century, the name Hertelendy is filled with tradition and prestige. Taking generations of wine production into the modern world has both innovated Hertelendy’s craft today and preserved the values and practices on which the name is built.
At Hertelendy Vineyards, Ralph works hard to ensure that quality remains the top priority every step of the way.
