Rare Wine

Be the first to try the wines before they hit the Maple & Ash wine list. We source varietals from lauded producers worldwide and leverage Maple & Ash’s relationships to access wines otherwise unavailable in Illinois. Additionally, members may purchase wines direct from Maple & Ash’s wine cellar, voted one of America’s best by Wine Enthusiast, at retail prices.

Curated Experience 

Maple & Ash’s lauded wine team directly oversees your wine club experience. Use their knowledge or test them with your prowess to curate your own additional cases; oversee your party at home, review your wine cellar or represent you at wine auctions. They are here to answer questions and enjoy tasting great wine with you.


Join our Maple & Ash weekly wine classes and devour the tasting notes that accompany the wines to learn the history, terroir, and people behind these great wines.
