For those of us predisposed to small lot wines, a key benefit of joining a wine club is access to our favourites before they sell out. Addressing this desire, the Meyer Family Vineyards (MFV) Wine Club invites kindred spirits to join the growing fold of likeminded fans of its focused, single vineyard wine portfolio crafted in traditional Burgundy style. Proprietor JAK Meyer explains, “With many of our wines and events selling out quickly, our goal is to include and serve our members first.” Given the success MFV is enjoying in significant wine competitions and great recognition beyond Canada in the Pacific Northwest and United States and in cities such as London, England and Hong Kong, being at the front of the line is a huge asset.
Another membership advantage is early invitations to events. The 2013 Release Party set for Saturday, May 16th, where you can be among the first to try the new releases and award-winning wines, may be sold out when this magazine hits newsstands. Check now to see if tickets are still available for this party where you get to mingle with JAK and Janice Meyer and winemaker Chris Carson as you sip wine with a delicious meal at the beautiful vineyard setting. Then there’s the Pick Up Party, Saturday, June 20th, where Wine Club members pick up the June shipment, enjoy small bites while sampling some of the new release wines. It’s complimentary for club members and guests can purchase tickets to attend, refundable upon joining the wine club. Club members who sign up a friend that day will receive a bottle of wine for a value up to $25 for free.
