UTAH (ABC4) – Vin 7000, a Utah wine company that is all about “the small family wineries,” as well as “the stories behind the wine, the vineyards, (and) the people,” has brought a first-ever to the Beehive State: wine clubs!
Representatives say that through this initiative, Utahns will have the opportunity to explore new, exclusive and limited-production fine wines, shipped to the Utah State Liquor Store of their choosing either quarterly or bi-annually.
The company notes that the idea for Utah wine clubs surfaced from the general frustration that residents still did not have access to “join legal wine clubs” despite a longstanding special order system implemented by the Utah Department of Beverage Services (DABS).
The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Services is preparing to launch a wine club service. That program is currently in the “planning process” for implementation, according to a DABS spokesperson.
According to representatives, all of Vin 7000’s wine clubs feature free shipping, “exclusive access to premium and limited wines,” access to wines “that are not typically available in Utah,” both tours of the winery and tastings, and annual Utah member events with the Vin 7000 winemakers.
At this time, the company is offering six different wine clubs:
- The “French Wine Club”
- The “Buoncristiani Family Winery” club, a club for Napa Valley-wine lovers
- The “Leo Steen Wines” club, best suited for those who crave “food-friendly wines and interesting varietals”
- The “Andrew Murray Vineyards” club, catered to those who prefer Rhone varietals
- The “Natalie’s Estate Winery” club, for the group that likes their wine from Washington
- The “Russian River Vineyards” club, for those with a strong taste for a classic California Pinot Noir.
The number of bottles per shipment varies, ranging from three to 12, while pricing ranges from $140.00 to $380.00 per shipment.
