When you visit a winery, chances are that you will also be getting a pitch about joining a winery wine club. Most wine clubs work the same way. Members of the wine club receive multiple shipments of wine per year adding up to a case or more of wine per year. Some wine clubs will offer different options. But, if you love their wines, enjoy the tasting room and friendly staff when you visit and find yourself always taking home a bottle or two each time you visit, orr you live out of town and want a regular supply of wine shipped to you with virtually no hassle. Then you should join the winery’s wine club.
Benefits of joining a Winery’s Wine Club
- Wine clubs may ship you wines before they are available to the public.
- Wine clubs may ship you special wines such as reserve wines or exclusive releases that are not available anywhere except at the winery or to members.
- Wine shipments are usually discounted off the normal retail price.
- Wine club members receive a discount on any wines or merchandise they order or purchase from the winery.
- Wine club members say they enjoy and look forward to receiving the wines and the element of surprise that comes with each shipment.
- A convenient way to taste the latest offerings from a winery.
- A winery may offer special events at the winery for wine club members only, or offer discounts on event tickets
- There is often no cost to join a wine club.
Joining a winery wine club allows it’s members immerse themselves in everything the winery has to offer. It’s easy to lose sight of what draws you to wine in the first place: usually it is the complex flavors that excite the senses. Wine clubs offer bottles that are ready to be uncorked, or access to limited production wines that are not available in the market place. This might even inspire a few spontaneous blind tasting parties or an experimental food and wine pairing dinner with close friends. Regardless of where your wine experiences take you, rekindling your love of wine and the experience of learning something new can make any wine club worth joining.
