Wine Club & Shipping FAQs
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING A WINE CLUB MEMBER?
The Good Harbor Vineyards’ Connoisseur Wine Club benefits include 20% off all wine purchased online or in the tasting room, 20% off all purchases of wine by the glass or cider by the pint enjoyed on our patio, free tasting on any visit for the member and three additional guests and more. Please see all benefits are listed on the Wine Club page.
IS THERE A FEE TO JOIN?
There is NO fee to join. Your benefits begin as soon as you sign up. We will keep your credit card information on file and you will be charged twice a year for your wine allocation. If you cancel before you fulfill both club allocations, you will be charged a $75 fee
HOW DO I JOIN?
You can join in person at the winery or online.
HOW OFTEN WILL I RECEIVE WINE SHIPMENTS?
Wine Club allocations go out twice a year, in April and September. But you are welcome to use your discount to shop online or in person at 20% off all year long!
WHAT WINE WILL I RECEIVE IN MY CLUB ALLOCATION? CAN I CHOOSE MY WINES?
Yes! We ship 6 bottles of wine minimum with every club order, preselected based on seasonality, availability and release dates. Allocations can include sold out and pre-released wines. You are welcome to modify your selections up to 10-12 days prior to shipment, making as many changes as you wish during that time. We provide ample notice via email prior to the club allocation period. If you do not log into your account to make your wine selections by the cut-off date, the winemaker's selections will automatically be selected and your credit card will be charged for those wines.
WHAT IF I WANT MORE/LESS THAN 6 BOTTLES OF WINE IN MY CLUB ALLOCATION?
Each allocation must contain a minimum of six bottles, but you are allowed to add more bottles to each shipment if you prefer at 20% off each.
CAN I BUY WINE OUTSIDE OF THE TWO CLUB ALLOCATIONS PER YEAR? ARE THERE DISCOUNTS?
Yes, you may purchase wine at 20% off year-round as a club member. However, any wine purchased outside of the two required allocations in April and September do not count toward your yearly purchase.
CAN I GIVE A WINE CLUB MEMBERSHIP AS A GIFT?
Great idea! Yes, you are able to sign up for this online or in the tasting room.
