Wine and Spirits

The New School has established a relationship with Chelsea Wine Vault as the provider of wine and spirits for the university. Chelsea Wine Vault offers an extensive selection of fine wines, supported by an expert staff and sommelier. They are pleased to answer any questions and help you select wine for your event.

The New School receives a 20 percent discount on still wines. See sample offerings (PDF). Note that this discount applies to any purchase, not just to those wines on the sample list.

To place an order, fax your purchase requisition directly to Chelsea Wine Vault at 212.463.9589. As always, the requisition must include a contact name, phone number, delivery location, and preferred delivery time. It must also bear an authorized approval signature and designated FOAP. An authorized signature will be required at the time of delivery. The vendor copy of that signature in conjunction with the original requisition will authorize payment by Accounts Payable. There is no need to forward your delivery receipt to AP.

Please note that open purchase orders are no longer processed. Departments ordering spirits should monitor their usage as orders are placed.

Delivery to New School facilities and events is free in Manhattan.

Chelsea Wine Vault's delivery hours are noon to 5:00 p.m. and require a two-hour delivery window. Please schedule accordingly.  Chelsea Wine Vault requires at least 48-hours notice for all orders. Orders with a delivery time of "ASAP" will not be fulfilled; you must provide a specific date and two-hour time frame.
