Direct Cellars Reviews – Are They Keeping These Secrets From You?

Direct CellarsI recently found out about this new company “Direct Cellars” from one of my social media friends. So, I decided to have a detailed look at this company.

I am sure like myself, many of you would also like to learn more about this company. if you are looking to invest with them, there is nothing better than to know all you can about the company beforehand.

To help you guys, I have spent some time, done some research and prepared this Direct Cellars Review.

I have divided the information into company profile, products, compensation plan and finally my verdict.

Let’s check out my detailed review down below.

What Exactly Is Direct Cellars?

Direct Cellars was founded by David Distefano in 2014 and has offices in Chicago, Fort Lauderdale and Seattle. It is a wine club with an MLM twist. However, apart from the information available on the site, there is nothing about the owner on the internet.

They have focused all their marketing efforts to the continent of North America and thus receiving the bulk (94%) of their web traffic from the USA. The rest of the web traffic comes from Canada.

The domain is an old one which is repurposed for the business.

However, like the most legit business entities, it is set to expire in 2019.

That is all about the company. Let’s look at the products they offer.

Products Offered by Direct Cellars

They offer 2 membership opportunities and 2 assorted wine picks as their products. Both membership and wine picks come with the selection of wines delivered to the buyers every month.

There can be up to 4 bottles of wines delivered per month.

However, customers cannot pick the wines themselves, rather it will be picked by the in-house wine tasting experts of Direct Cellars.

If you want to rely on the wine experts and buy wines from them, then it will cost you $49.95 for 2 bottles or $79.95 for four bottles.

The Direct Cellars Compensation Plan

Direct Cellars pays out commissions to their members when they sponsor other members who either become customers or distributors.

If that’s not enough, Direct Cellars offers matching bonuses which are paid on your directly sponsored member’s spending who earn commissions.

My Final Thoughts on Direct Cellars

Direct Cellars offers tangible products that can be consumed or sold.

This is a good sign. They also offer versatile compensation plans for their members.

You must remember that you cannot choose the wines yourself. It is picked and sent by them.

Plus, the delivered wines can often be overpriced.

At the end of the day, it will be your marketing skills that can earn the promised benefits more than anything else. If you have those skills, then you’ll be in a better position than if you don’t.

My Personal Recommendation:

Now if you’re looking to earn a substantial income from home I strongly recommend establishing “multiple” streams of income. The following the link that I’ve posted here below reveals a proven system in which you’ll have someone who is already making six figures a year, guide you to six figures within the next 6 months by the hand… How cool is that, aye 😉

  2. You might be family! My mom’s dad was Laurent, a once famous doc in Haiti who spoke beautiful French, played the piano well and loved women lol!

      Hey Tamara, WOW… that is very interesting. I actually would like to know… because I barely know my family on my dads side and often wondered, if (there was more family on his side) I only knew one of his sisters who passed away a little over a year ago and her children. Let’s connect on Facebook… God bless ->

    Great review. I am really happy with my Direct Cellars business because it is easy and fun plus I get Free Wine. Your article helped explain it a bit. I love helping others so this is perfect for me. @KitCatWineClub

  4. My husband is a sommelier. I am WSET Level 1. I will stick with the amazing wines I have available to me. I am going to a Merry Edwards event in town. I will stick with meeting winemakers all day long.

    • says:

      Hi Alanda, hope all is well with you. Congrats on your husband being a sommelier… also, I understand that you may be very passionate about meeting with winemakers all day long and that’s ok. However for some others they would rather spend time with their children, family and loved ones… maybe even travel the world and see new places without ever having to worry about money 🙂 That’s where my recommendation comes in. It allows anyone from any background to increase their income rapidly and with that money made they can afford great wine (if that is what they are passionate about) etc… 🙂 I personally have a son and I’d rather spend time with him, travel the world with him and raise him instead of spending that time with winemakers respectfully speaking. Wishing you the best in your business and God bless! 🙂

  5. Michele says:

    Have you invested? Wine sells itself, it wont be hard to sell around my state but is it worth it for the price of wine and earnings?

    • says:

      Hi Michelle, I personally don’t drink… so it’s not the best fit for me to invest in. However I’d personally say in my opinion that it’s wise to have multiple streams of income just like most top earners in the industry. I don’t think it’s very wise to reject earning money because that money did not “all” come from selling wine. For example, it’s like going to your boss at your current job and saying “I won’t receive my pay anymore because it did not come from selling wine”. My recommendation helps to learn how to leverage the internet to acquire more customers for any business you wish. Wishing you much continued success and God bless!

  6. I really wanted to work this opportunity, but $20/bottle is too high for most people. I buy most of my wine online and have for years. Rarely pay more than $12/bottle and that’s for wine that can’t be found in most stores, really great stuff. I don’t see how this will sell to most people. Will check out your recommendation.

  7. Check the criminal record of the CEO. 3 arrests this year alone. Battery of someone over 65? WTF? Everything u look for in a legit company…not!!
