Blind Tasting Club
Napa style “speed tasting” gives you a gross impression of very few often vastly different wines.
The wine club you then sign up for ships you wine you neither tasted nor care for. When you join our wine club you can decide what we ship you, but how to decide? Could you possibly taste, compare and remember all those wines? Yes you can! Our blind tastings allow even complete novices to easily and validly rate very many wines. Include your favorite wine(s) in the mix to see how ours stack up. Since we use a Coravins, the cork stays in and your wine is never wasted. If our wines cannot beat yours, you should not join our wine club. Although we’d be happy to surprise you, having a record of your personal tasting profile guarantees that you’ll receive only what you really want. No more buyer’s remorse.
Wine of the Month Club
This got started during the COVID19 lockdown and we enjoyed it so much we decided to make it a lasting event. Each month we feature a different bottle of our wine. Club members will receive one bottle of the featured wine and an invitation to join us in a virtual wine tasting where we’ll drink together and tell you more about the wine of the month. Additionally, club members receive 20% off all other goods and services we offer, including lodging. All of this is available for a fixed price of $48 per month plus $12 shipping (or pickup at no cost). Our wines range in price from $16-$150; we will always make sure you receive an exceptional value in your monthly allotment.

Blind Tasting Club’s Wine Discount DetailsLearn More
This is complicated. Bear with me: If your challenger wins, you get 40% discount, if our wine wins, 20%.
For an in-house wine tasting you pre-purchase the wine to be tasted at 40% off. Each new club member signing up at the time of the tasting earns the host an additional 10% off of additional wine purchases (can’t be off the current purchase for compliance reasons). If your challenger wins we’ll donate 20% to a charity of your choice.
If the tasting is at the winery, and you take an unopened case home with you, the discount is 20% plus 20% if your challenger wins plus 10% for each of your friends who signs up for wine club membership. The difference in 25% discount for a case when blind tastings are held at the winery and 40% when tastings are held at someone’s home is because when the tasting is at someone’s home, the wine to be tasted is the wine they pre-purchased (again, the law forces us to do this) as opposed to our wine when the tasting is at the winery. We can never discount 100% for compliance reasons.
99% discount could be achieved if;
- tasting is at the winery, your challenger wins and 6 of your friends join the wine club
- tasting is at the winery, one of our wines wins and 8 of your friends join the wine club
- tasting is at someone’s house, and 6 of their friends join the wine club

Blind tastings are always on Saturday at 3pm. 10 person minimum. Either you bring all 10 or we’ll try to assemble the group. 2 advantages if you bring the group:
- tasting is guaranteed to happen.
- you may be able to share a membership with one or more of your friends and the blind tasting results will allow you to make that match.
