Club Format and Cost

In order to receive discounted shipments and additional lifestyle benefits, you must be a member of 1856 Club. A $50 one-time, non-refundable deposit will be processed to secure your 1st shipment only. This deposit will be deducted from your 1st club shipment cost. Wines are released in two 3-Bottle or 6-bottle shipments each year based on the club level you select. The cost will range based on your selections. The cost of a bottle ranges from $35 to $75 + tax & shipping.
Each club shipment for 3-bottle members will arrive in a cardboard shipper that can be upgraded to a fire-branded Sigma Alpha Epsilon wooden crate for a discounted price of $25 ($50 Value). All club shipments for 6-bottle members will arrive in a wooden crate at no additional cost ($99 Value). Except for your one-time, non-refundable $50 deposit, your card will not be charged until the Release date. Again, the $50 deposit will be deducted from your 1st shipment cost.
Each club shipment can also include a special welcome package and gift at no additional cost ($30 Value). Additionally, you can completely customize your wine selections! New, library and special edition wines will be offered. There is no long-term commitment, and you may cancel at any time.
Please review 1856 Club member levels and benefits on comparison matrix presented on the Club page. Enjoy your wine and remember, when you share a glass, gift a bottle or visit the Fairwinds tasting room in Napa Valley together, you are supporting Sigma Alpha Epsilon. In the bonds of SAE!
