JOIN OUR WINE CLUB

THE WINE COLLECTIVE


Aperture wines are created in limited quantities and frequently sell out upon their release. Through The Wine Collective membership, we are able to offer an opportunity to grow your collection of both our rare and favorite wines, without the risk of selling out. As a member of The Wine Collective in Sonoma County, you will be the first to receive notice of new releases, small lot wines, and special offers.

The Wine Collective Membership Explained 

There is no fee to join Aperture’s Wine Collective. As a Member, you will receive 2 shipments per year of 6, 12, or 24 bottles (quantity chosen at the time of sign-up). When joining the membership, the Collector is committing to “1 year” of shipments which includes 1 spring release and 1 fall release shipment. Members will have the opportunity to customize their upcoming shipment online, 2 weeks prior to each billing date. Immediately upon joining The Wine Collective, you can opt to use your complimentary tastings and take advantage of members’ pricing.

Additional benefits include: 

  • A guaranteed allocation of all Aperture wines, at release pricing with the ability to cancel after the first year (after receiving 1 Spring and 1 Fall shipment).
  • Release pricing year-round on all current vintage wines. 
  • All orders of 6 bottles or more will receive your member shipping rates.
  • Ability to fully customize shipments. 
  • Complimentary wine tasting experiences for up to 4 guests for our 12-bottle members and up to 6 guests for our 24-bottle members.
  • Exclusive members’ access to library wines, collectible large-format bottles, and special releases for purchase. 
  • A dedicated membership concierge, to assist with your orders, gift-giving, and itinerary planning. 
  • Unique access, members’ pricing to nationwide Aperture events, and complimentary virtual tastings accompanying releases. 
  • Access and members’ pricing to host private events on the Aperture estate property.

Releases will not change for mailing list members. As a mailing list member, you will still have access to release pricing during the 2-week release window in the Spring and Fall. Wine Collective members will receive priority access to customize their wine club shipment in advance of the release.

  • When can I expect each shipment to be billed and shipped? 
    The Spring shipment will be billed in late February and arrive in mid-late March. The Fall shipment will be billed in August and arrive in September. All shipments are weather permitting. If temperatures are not safe to ship at these times in your area, we will delay shipments until conditions permit.
     
  • I’m going to be out of town. Can I delay my wine club shipment? 
    Absolutely, we do ask that you let us know in advance if you will need us to postpone your upcoming order and we will do our best to accommodate.
     
  • Can I pay for expedited shipping? 
    Ground shipping is the default option for all club orders. You can opt to upgrade to 2-day or next-air and pay the difference when you customize your shipment, or by contacting members@aperture-cellars.com in advance of the ship date.
     
  • How do I change my address? 
    Addresses would need to be changed in advance of the ship date. Please log into your account or email members@aperture-cellars.com to make any changes.
     
  • Can I skip shipments or pause my memberships? 
    Absolutely! We ask that you contact Aperture in advance of any current release billing dates if you need to put your membership on hold or skip a shipment. Early cancelation charges may apply.
     
  • What happens if I decide to cancel my wine club membership early? 
    If you opt to cancel your membership before you receive your spring and fall shipments you will incur a one time charge of any discounts received to the card on file.

Discounts: 

  • What discount do members receive on wine? 
    All membership levels will receive release pricing on all current vintage wines (library wines excluded). All membership levels will also be eligible for member-only pricing on Aperture event tickets. 12 and 24 bottle Collective members will receive 4 or 6 complimentary tastings per calendar year. These tastings can be used at once or broken up into more visits. Complimentary tastings do not “roll over” year to year.
     
  • How many complimentary tastings can I receive? 
    Dependent upon the wine club level that you join, you will receive the following complimentary in-person tastings annually:
    6 bottle club: no complimentary tastings
    12 bottle club: 4 site series tastings ($300 value)
    24 bottle club: 6 private tastings ($750 value)
    Please note that these tastings do not roll over year to year if you do not use them.
     
  • How does shipping work?
    Depending on which club you join, ground shipping is a flat $20 fee (6 bottle club) or is included in your membership on all 6+ bottle orders (12 and 24 bottle clubs). This means all 6+ bottle orders you place with Aperture, so long as your membership is active, you will receive your membership level’s rate. Any 1-2 bottle orders will incur normal shipping fees. To upgrade to air shipping, you will just be charged the difference between the ground and air fees.
     
  • How will I know when I will be charged? 
    You will receive an email notification 2 weeks prior to the billing date of your shipment. This will signify the opening of the customization window and inform you of the current release’s bottle selections. After billing, you will see a charge from Aperture Cellars and receive an email receipt to the email address on file.
