90+ Cellars

Wine

By partnering with acclaimed wineries around the world, 90+ Cellars has pioneered the modern-day négociant model and made it easy for consumers and retailers to enjoy a global selection of exceptional wines, all under their own label. As the flagship offering under the Latitude Beverage umbrella, 90+ Cellars has become one of the fastest growing wine brands in America by sourcing wine from high-scoring wineries to provide thrilling wines at an approachable price.

In 2009, Latitude Beverage founder Kevin Mehra began his quest to source exceptional wine from across the globe. He initially turned to the pages of trusted wine publications, such as Wine Spectator, and noted which wineries were consistently scoring 90 points or higher. He began to partner with these highly-rated wineries to bottle and sell their excess wine under his own label,  often for a fraction of the source price. This unique business model would become the foundation of 90+ Cellars.

Now, with nearly half a million cases in circulation annually, the brand offers consumers a taste of the world’s most acclaimed regions—Napa, Burgundy, Marlborough, and Prosecco, to name a few—at everyday prices. 

“Great wine shouldn’t be unattainable to the everyday wine drinker,” notes Mehra. “It shouldn’t be exclusive or intimidating. Wine should be fun, easy, and delicious.”

Part of that fun is identifying the various lots that 90+ Cellars has introduced over the years. Each wine is denoted by a lot number that correlates to the wine’s release, as well as the varietal and place of origin. By way of example, the brand’s second release—Lot 2 Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand—remains one of the most popular in the portfolio.

In addition to everyday-priced wines like Lot 2 or the Lot 50 Prosecco, 90+ Cellars has also introduced more limited Reserve wines from locales such as the Russian River Valley, Sancerre, and Barolo.

“Our model gives us the ability to look at the entire world of wine,” adds Mehra. “And to curate a portfolio that allows wine drinkers to explore, find everyday favorites, and even gain the confidence to buy a higher-end wine for special occasions.”
