Destination Cellars Partners With Inspirato

DULLES, VA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - Destination Cellars, the first and only luxury destination wine club, today announced a new partnership with Inspirato, a new members-only luxury vacation club. Current Destination Cellars members will receive preferred pricing instead of the standard $15,000 membership fee for Inspirato. Inspirato members will receive preferred pricing on all Destination Cellars custom wine experiential travel including private wine tastings, lunches, dinners, cooking lessons and wine blending sessions at more than 150 wineries around the world. They will also have access to Destination Cellars private online portal, which offers the ability to purchase wines and have the product shipped directly to their travel destination or personal residence.

"Our new partnership with Destination Cellars is a natural one," said Ben Rule, head of business development and strategy, Inspirato. "We are both like-minded companies that share the same philosophy: to offer access to carefully chosen luxury products that can be enjoyed with family and friends."

Inspirato is a new members-only vacation club that changes the way luxury travelers spend quality vacation time with their family and friends. Members receive luxury at a value with a one-time initiation fee of only $15,000 and gain access to a growing portfolio of over $100 million dollars of luxury vacation homes in Anguilla, Aspen, Mexico, Hawaii, Tuscany and more.
