Our Story

How we can offer world-class wine, at steep discounts


When we met Jonathan H. Newman in the late '90s, he had just become chairman of the PLCB (Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board), the largest control state in the country, with over 650 retail stores. He was an oenophile and a very driven man, and he was determined to bring Pennsylvania and its system for buying and selling wine out of the Dark Ages.

Why is this important to you, our customer? Well, Jonathan was in charge of tasting and buying for the largest purchaser of California wine in the world. He loved great wine, and he loved getting great wine at a great price for his customers. With Jonathan's vision realized, together we created the Chairman's Selection program. This program soon became the envy of wine purveyors everywhere, with hard to find, great varietals available at amazingly low prices.

The Chairman's Selection program became wine customers' version of the "good housekeeping seal of approval." They sold tens of millions of dollars in quality wine and created lasting relationships throughout the world's finest wineries.

These relationships are what we bring to you today through Wine for the Reception. We are bringing you the very best-quality wine we can find, at steep discounts, each individually hand-curated and scored by Jonathan Newman.

Please enjoy our wine at your next event, special day or just among good friends. No matter what your occasion, your guests deserve the very best quality, and you deserve the very best value, all delivered directly to your door, with the shipping included in the price.

Cheers,
WFTR Team
