February 2018 (1st Quarter) Wine Club Information
As an Allegro Wine Club member, you will receive our Winemaker's Selection each quarter. This collection of wines is personally selected by our winemaker, Carl Helrich, for the club option you joined and features new wine releases, wines we're almost sold out of, etc. Of course, you do have the option to customize your wine club package prior to billing each quarter. This time around the wine club billing date is February 1st.
In this first wine club collection of the new year, our Barrel and Split club members will receive two new releases: 2015 Bridge, and 2016 Skin-Fermented Chardonnay, a member favorite. In addition we'll include the 2016 Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon which made its debut during the November wine club pick up weekends in case you missed it.
Sweet wine fans will cheer at the release of another new sweet fruit blend: Pop, Allegro's first wine using juicy sweet cherries. Stay tuned for the return of Funk and Karaoke, hopefully in May.
New wine releases are typically held and released to our wine club members first. These new wines make their debut as part of the Winemaker's Selection and are not available for tasting until February 2nd.

Wine Club Pick-Up and Member Mixer Weekends
Join us between 11am to 5pm on February 3-4 and 10-11 to pick up your wine club collection. Of course, we'll have the new wines available on these weekends for tasting.
Wine Club Shipping begins on February 12th. A UPS tracking number will be emailed to you when your wine has been billed. The tracking number will become active and traceable after UPS picks up the package from the winery.
Reminder: Club members residing in Pennsylvania who have elected to have their wine shipped will notice a $.50/bottle PA excise tax (required by law) applied on their invoice at the time of billing. This is included as "Shipping" on your invoice but the actual shipping is still free for 12-bottle members.
