In short because it’s worth it. It is a convenient way to have stimulating wines and olive oil delivered to your door at a time of your choosing at a lower price than what you would usually pay.
And in addition to convenience, stimulation, and value, you’ll get extra member benefits, namely an ongoing discount on all additional orders and free tickets to our tasting events.
They are completely different. The VD’O Club is a membership which comes with “VIP” benefits from discounts to free tastings (for more info, please check the features of each plan). On the other hand, the VD’O Loyalty program allows you to benefit from rewards based on the number of points you have accumulated through online purchases. You can of course combine both!
Our 4 plans offer different options in terms of quantity and frequency. The main differences are the number of bottles you’ll get every two or 3 months, the ongoing discount percentage on any additional orders and the number of free tickets to tasting events. The 4th plan additionally offers Free shipping.
If you need more or less wines at different time intervals other than the options offered in our plans, just email or phone us and we will be happy to customize a plan for you.
All and none. All the plans deliver serious value for what you pay. They all have the same average price per bottle (at least ¥3,000). If you are in search of more expensive wines, we will be happy to customize a plan for you.

The wine tasting events take place, throughout the year, in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and other regions in Japan. These events include a wide variety of wines from different regions/producers. Some of these events are attended by our wine producers where you can ask them all sorts of questions
that come to mind and perhaps plan a trip to their region/vineyards!
Please note that due to the Covid-19 situation we have substantially reduced our tasting events.
ABOUT SUSPENSION AND CANCELLATION
You can cancel anytime. There is no tie-in. Simply log-in to your Portal and schedule your cancellation.
If you’re away or if your situation does not allow you to receive wines during a certain period of time, you can suspend your subscription instead of cancelling. To do so, simply log in to your portal and go to “subscriptions” where you can “Skip” the next installment. Once you confirm, you will see a portal notification letting you know the change was processed, and the date for your next invoice was adjusted.
Once you cancel or suspend your subscription, your membership benefits will then run until the end of your current active plan and then be automatically cancelled.
Example: say, you are subscribed to the “Every Now and Then Plan” (4 bottles every 2 months) and your payment was processed on March 4th. You received your wines on March 6th and then you cancelled on March 7th. You’ll no more be charged after that date. Your membership benefits end on May 5th.
