A subscription to Le Petit Ballon is a game changer!

And we've got 5 reasons to prove it!

#1. It's a cool way to help people discover amazing wines
Every month we deliver 2 bottles of wine, straight from the wine-growers. We provide tasting tips and notes in a language that's understandable and fun! Each monthly delivery is an adventure through a theme, trend or region. We take people on a wine discovery, drinking our way around the best wines they'll have tasted!

#2. It helps people understand their tastes
Do you know what you really like when it comes to wines? Not many people do. Beyond a simple preference of white or red, Le Petit Ballon’s expert advice and extensive selection helps people truly understand what type of wine they prefer.

#3. They will receive the best discounts on their favourite wines
If people enjoyed a particular bottle they tasted in their last delivery, Le Petit Ballon’s members can take advantage of special discounts to buy these wines again. Our online shop has a broad selection of different wines, all at discounted prices

#4. All our wines are carefully selected by our master sommelier.
Jean-Michel Deluc is the award winning former master sommelier of the Ritz in Paris, and one of the top Sommeliers in the world. He tastes over 12,000 wines a year, choosing only the very best to go into our subscription box.

#5. Support wine from smaller vineyards and local winemakers
All the wineries we work with are family owned with a long history and passion in oenology. We have the opportunity to personally meet many of these families and we share their unique stories in the Gazette, our monthly magazine.
