Wine Club Membership
Our Wine Club Members are special…and receive special treatment. Wine club members not only receive exclusive wine club specials and discounts but they also have exclusive access to our many Member Only events and a exclusive Wine Club Room in both of our tasting rooms.
Be sure to check out our event calendar to see the fun things we have planned.
Our annual Harvest Party at Destiny Ridge is a popular event and tickets go fast…and this exclusive member only event (shhh…we let you bring a couple friends) is not to be missed. Along with your Wine Club Allocations, we celebrate their release with another Member’s Only event, our legendary Release Parties.
Wine Club Members are also invited to a Members Only Friday night Happy Hour from 5-8:00pm at the Woodinville Tasting Room.
Welcome to the Wine Club
We hope that you enjoy every aspect of your experience and look forward to getting to sharing many wine times together! As you get to know us you’ll quickly see that we take our wines very seriously and we treat our wine club members like family. With that said if you have suggestions on how we can improve or areas that you feel are working well I would love to hear about them! All of our contact information is available on the website and we do our best to be accessible, as we want this to be “the club you keep”.
Jarrod uses the phrase “from bud to bottle” and spends a lot of time in the vineyard. With attentive viticulture management he works with Jose, our Vineyard Foreman and an amazing crew to insure that the vineyard is pruned and trained to produce balanced crop loads. Our 327 acre vineyard is located in the Horse Heaven Hills which overlooks the mighty Columbia River, and we would love to have you visit! Currently, we have 23 different varietals planted in this rugged, rocky soil that was slated to be a rock pit (hence the name Quarry Butte). I know it may not sound that glamorous but it is spectacular and the grapes love it, as do we. With over 300 days of sunshine and some of the highest heat units in the state we pay close attention to canopy management so that the ripening can be a gradual and gentle process. Then in early fall when the fruit is ready we gently hand-harvesting them and the winemaking process begins.
In the cellar Jarrod and Matt, our Assistant Wine Maker embrace old world customs like gentle hand punch downs with cutting edge technology to create small lots of hand-crafted wine for you to enjoy. Each wine then ages for 12-24 months in primarily new oak from some of the world’s most premier cooperages. French to Hungarian barrels top the scales but each year they taste through the wines and order depending on the vintage, variety and its natural nuances.
Our Wine Club Release Schedule
Alexandria Nicole Wine Club members receive wine club allocations three times a year. The three general timeframes listed below. They do vary slightly from year to year as harvest and production determine when we can bottle and how long each wine should be cellared prior to release.
All Wine Club Members have up until 30 days of the upcoming release date to make changes to their account (ie: reds only from reds and whites &/or changing your pick up location or preference) at that point the wines are being pulled from inventory and changes will be applied to the following shipment.
Members that have selected to have their wine releases shipped to them, will receive an electronic invoice once your wines have been charged. Those “Ship-To” Wine Club Members will have their wines shipped prior to the wine club release at the tasting rooms. We do this to allow for transit time in an attempt to have all our members able to enjoy the newest selection at approximately the same time!
Late Wine Release Pick-Ups
Due to limited storage space at our tasting rooms we are limited in the amount of time that we can hold the wines. So if you have chosen to “Pick-Up” your wine (either the Woodinville tasting room or the Prosser tasting room) we will have it available for you 6 weeks after it is released and then at that time we’ll happily ship it to you using your credit card on file, unless other arrangements are made. To request a special exception please send your email to wineclub@AlexandriaNicoleCellars.com and we will do our best to honor them.
