Hortense Bernard and her team assist each customer in their orders depending on their tastes, their requirements and their budget. Hortense was born in Bordeaux and grew up in the Bordeaux Wine industry. She has been participating in the Futures campaign since she was old enough to taste wine. Our team has tasted each and every wine that we offer at our boutique and through our online wine store. We are excited and eager to share our wine tasting knowledge and experience.
If you are planning to buy wine online, particularly Futures, it’s important to choose a reputable wine merchant. Indeed, you may have heard stories of merchants who have filed for bankruptcy, stored wine in poor conditions, or engaged in wine fraud. To dramatically lower that risk, look for an established wine merchant who has been in the wine trade for years, is financially solvent, and will store your wine properly.
This is where Millesima has a distinct advantage. Millesima is one of the 400 licensed wine merchants who participate on the “Place de Bordeaux” and one of the 5 biggest buyers of Futures wines (70,000 cases or 840,000 bottles). We have one of the largest Futures catalogs in Bordeaux, allowing us to offer the most complete selection of Futures in the United States, all easily accessible through our online wine store. All of the Futures wines that Millesima offers are sourced directly from the producing estate in the original wooden case. Millesima has close and personal partnerships with many Chateaux, which has allowed us to secure allotments and guarantee future delivery. We only sell wines that we have purchased directly from the estate. We do not purchase wine from any private customer or auction house. These assets and our impressive stock of 2.5 million bottles of wine are your best guarantee to ensure the proper delivery of your wine Futures.
