How much does the wine club cost?
The price of the selection will vary each quarter based upon the cost of each wine. Members receive progressive discounts depending on membership level from the retail price on all selections. The average cost of the 3 Bottle Membership is estimated to be around $100-$150 each quarter, not including CA sales tax (8.75%), and shipping & handling (if wines are shipped).
Do you select the wines, or can I choose my own?
A: We select the wines. Wine Club is our opportunity to share with you the vast array of wines we produce here at the winery. In addition to showcasing the best we have to offer, selections may include pre-released wines, library selections, or wine specifically produced for members only. You may, however, choose whether you would like to receive a combination of reds and whites, reds only, or whites only.
What is included in my shipment?
Below we have listed the options that we offer when you sign up for the club. Each option has a description on what you can expect each quarter.
Mixed Option - Three different wines. A mix of reds and whites.
Red Wines Only - Two different red wines, with two bottles of one of the selections.
White Wines Only - Two different white wines, with two bottles of one of the selections.
6 Bottles – Equal number bottles of each selection of wine *Example: If 3 bottles for Reds only= 2 Cabernet Franc and 1 Melange, 6 bottles = 3 Cabernet Franc and 3 Melange
12 Bottles - Twice the six bottle selection *Example: If 3 bottles = Chardonnay, Viognier, and Cabernet Franc, 6 bottles = 2 Chardonnay, 2 Viognier, and 2 Cabernet Franc, 12 Bottles = 4 Chardonnay, 4 Viognier, and 4 Cabernet Franc.
If I choose one of the club levels now, can I change my option later?
Yes. For example, if you choose to receive three bottles per period upon signup, but wish to increase to six later, you can easily do that. Just notify us in writing at least two weeks before the next selection will be released. You can also edit your selection preference with your online account on our website.
May I exchange a wine from the current selection?
The benefit of being in a wine club is expanding your palate and experiencing wines that you may not normally gravitate towards. We offer the “Reds Only” and “Whites Only” options for those who prefer certain types of wines. Beyond these options, our winemaker will make the selections each quarter. Exchanges on any of the selections are not permitted.
Which date is my credit card charged?
Credit cards will be charged for the wine selections on the Monday prior to the pickup window. If you choose to pick up your wine in person, there will be no other charges. If you do not pick up your wine, your selections will automatically default to shipping for that period. Shipping and handling charges will be run as a second charge on the Monday following the pickup window at which time your wine will be boxed up and shipped.
When can I pick up my wines (selections)? When is the pickup window?
The pickup window generally begins on a Thursday just before the first full weekend of the period (February, May, August and November). During the month-long window, you may pick up your selections anytime during business hours.
When are your pickup events held? If I am unable to attend, may I pick up my wine at another time?
Pickup events are held one weekend day of each period (February, May, August and November). Wine selections will be available for pick up anytime during the pickup window. Due to storage limitations and logistics, we are unable to hold selections for pick up at a later time nor are we able to release selections prior to the start of the pickup weekend. Any selections not picked up during the window will default to automatic shipping for that period. Shipping and handling will be charged as a second transaction on the Monday following the pickup window and your order will ship out that week pending any inclement weather.
I plan to pick up my wine. Do you still need my shipping address?
Yes. To enter you into our system, we need to have your shipping address. Although you plan to pick up your wine, we understand that sometimes things come up and you are unable to make it every time. In this case, we will automatically ship your selections directly to the address you provided. Please note that the Monday morning after the pickup window, shipping charges will have already been processed, and we will not be able to provide the option for pick up.
What shipping company is used to ship my wine?
All wine shipped to CA, AZ, and NV will be shipped via GSO. Wine shipped to all other states (with the exception of the aforementioned states) will be shipped be via UPS.
Can I give a membership to your Wine Club as a gift?
Yes, we would love for you to give the gift of a membership to our club. In doing so, you will be responsible for the 1-year membership commitment (4 selections) for them. Your credit card will be held on file and charged each period that a shipment goes out. Since we do not know the cost of each shipment up front, we are unable to charge a lump sum at the time of original purchase.
