|Membership in the
Vintners Club is open to all persons regardless of race, color or gender who are interested in enhancing their knowledge and appreciation
of wine. Over 350 men and women (wine
collectors, winemakers, winery owners, restaurateurs, sommeliers, wine writers and
judges, and people who simply love wine) are members. Several
wineries hold corporate memberships which entitles their personnel
to attend the tastings and events at the discounted member price. The Club's publications
are disseminated electronically to approximately 6,000 high-end wine enthusiasts all over the world.
A one-time Initiation Fee of $500 is charged to join the Vintners
Club. Annual Dues are $525 for resident members and for wineries.
Dues are $275 for individuals whose principal residence is outside California. Because of the Club's tax-exempt status, dues and wine donations are tax deductible to the
extent allowed by law in the same manner as charitable contributions.
Wine industry professionals may also be able to deduct the initiation
fee as well as the amount charged for tastings. Members are not charged any
annual "assessment" for purchase of wines.
