If you enjoy the finer things in life, you're probably something of a foodie. And for passionate foodies, there's always a Holy Grail: The MICHELIN-starred restaurant.
The MICHELIN experience is one predicated on exquisite preparation and exacting standards. That means whatever culinary masterpiece you've ordered will be perfectly paired with a sommelier-curated wine selection, expertly bringing out the taste in both dish and drink. Yes, the impeccable service and gorgeous ambiance are certainly perks, but the ultimate experience is in the food and wine.
You may not be able to complete the entire experience at home, but you can get a taste of what it's like thanks to a creative wine subscription plan called Wine Access.
The MICHELIN experience at home.
You cook and decorate your personal dining area, let Wine Access handle the pairings. Wine Access is unique in the competitive landscape of wine subscriptions because it's the official wine provider of the MICHELIN Guide. When you sign up, you'll get a special selection of wine delivered right to your door five times a year, expertly paired with chef-designed food recommendations to give you the next best thing to the MICHELIN experience without ever leaving your home.
Each shipment includes wine that you're unlikely to find anywhere else, specially chosen by sommeliers and beverage directors at leading MICHELIN-starred restaurants like Washington, DC's Jônt. The restaurant may be on your radar for your next business trip to the capital, but its bold selection of wine certainly doesn't have to wait.
Recreate the Jônt experience.
Chef Ryan Ratino's Jônt is one of DC's hottest tickets and most sought-after culinary experiences. Of course, a large reason why is the extraordinary, inspiring wine pairings chosen by beverage director Will Patton.
Jônt is dedicated to taking down the walls between kitchen and guests and inviting eaters to come along on a culinary journey of roads less traveled. The progressive tasting menu pursues dynamic new flavor profiles, challenges the seasons, navigates beyond the limits of time, and breaks with tradition. All while having a little fun. While you won't be able to sit next to Ratino's team while they whip up mind-blowing dishes, you will be able to enjoy the same wine at home with some suggestions on what to cook with it. It's the next best thing to the Jônt experience, and you won't even have to go outside.
Exclusive access to curated, elite wines.
Recreating the experience of MICHELIN-starred restaurants is one thing, but if you just like wine, Wine Access goes above and beyond other subscription services. Each four-bottle shipment ranges from $160 to $200, including shipping, and you'll get five seasonal shipments per year: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Holiday, and Winter. It's a distinctive way to celebrate every season, much like MICHELIN chefs adjust their menus to the changing temperatures outside.
The wine is a crucial element of any dining experience, especially the MICHELIN one. Maybe you haven't been able to get to a MICHELIN-starred restaurant yourself, but you can still get a prix-fixe menu of the world-class wines those restaurants like Jônt offer.
Like the MICHELIN experience itself, supply is not infinite. Reserve your Wine Access MICHELIN subscription box today.
