Our Story

Unique wines from hidden corners of the world. 

For wine lovers and wine curious alike. 

Story Behind Luckysomm

Our story is simple — We believe that great wine shouldn’t be kept a secret.

With at least 50+ years of collective experience in the hospitality industry.

Here's the scoop:

1. The most expensive wine isn't always the best.

2. You shouldn't have to be a wine expert to have access to great wine. 

3. You don’t have to travel to drink great wine from another country.

4. We bring fun and unique wines straight to your doorstep.

We find them, you enjoy them.

We focus on highlighting lesser-known grapes, regions, and some of our personal favorite producers. 

Whether it’s a pizza party, by the beach, or relaxing at home, there’s a perfect wine for you.

Luckysomm Team

The Luckysomm team is composed of industry veterans and wine professionals from across the country. Each contributes their unique knowledge and love for wine to bring you the best of the best.
