Dear Wine Club Members:
The Ashland Food Co-op Wine Club has been successful in many regards, and we appreciate your participation. Our original intent was to create a private club that would provide members with educational opportunities and offer discounted pricing. In a year’s time and effort, we expected to see membership and interest in the club grow; unfortunately this hasn’t been the case.
Thus, we are transforming the Wine Club and moving away from the private club concept. Subsequently, we would like to offer you a pro-rated refund of your Wine Club membership. If you would like, you may hold on to your card and continue to enjoy the First Friday Wine Club Tastings for free during the duration of your 12-month membership. Please contact the Specialties Department if you would like your pro-rated refund.
In an effort to make this wonderful world of wines successful for everyone involved, here is the new format that will begin June 2012:
1.First Friday Wine Club Tastings will be open to the public. There will be a $3 entrance fee at the door. If you continue your membership, you will be admitted free for the duration of your membership.
2. Anyone attending the First Friday Tastings will be offered a 20% discount on featured wines and must be special-ordered (minimum 6 bottles). Orders take up to one week to process and are placed with Michelle at the First Friday Wine Club Tasting.
We hope we have your support in our new concept.
Specialties Department Manager
