Join Our Allocation List

Although many wineries sell their wine on a first-come first-serve basis, we feel strongly that given the demand for our wine and the number of people on our mailing list, we want to use a more thoughtful system. Our goal is to make sure all members, both new and old, have fair access to our wine.

To purchase Kistler wine, you must be on our Allocation List. If you have not signed up, please do so here.

Our system provides a 30-day Release Period in which to respond with your order request. Order requests will be based on your allocation of each wine and any additional bottles requested. Initial allocations are purposely designed to be as generous as possible, and are based on your length of time on our list and your recent buying history.

At the end of the Release, depending on the level of response for each wine, we will either confirm your order request in full (including additional bottles requested, if available) or reduce it by a bottle or two. This will ensure that each member of our list receives their appropriate share of each wine, relative to their standing on the list.

If you live internationally, we are able to facilitate shipment of wine. Please see the International Ordering page for details.
