The Optimist Society

Membership in the Pangloss Cellars Optimist Society guarantees you access to a collection of wines crafted exclusively for our Members. Wines are shipped in October and March, and we encourage you to customize, or "optimize," your selection of wines to ensure you get exactly the wines you want.

Optimizing is a key benefit to the Optimist Society. It is something that makes our Membership unique because it gives you the ability to choose the bottles in your release. We encourage you to optimize your selections each release, because we believe you should always receive exactly the bottles you want. With each release we offer you a new selection of wines, and if you do not wish to optimize, those wines will be shipped to you.

We offer two Membership options. You may choose to receive 24 bottles per year, or 12 bottles annually. Here are the details of each:
