Here at Brave & Maiden, we’re looking to reset expectations of private winery membership. In short, we’re not interested in signing you up for another subscription to a wine club. Rather, we hope to give our Members a sense of participation and forge a relationship with our most valued clientele, those with a passion for learning about and enjoying extraordinary wines.
Membership at Brave & Maiden provides not just access to our limited production wines, but special access to the estate itself and our talented winery team. Benefits of Membership, listed below, will evolve with time. But know that we will always look to prioritize relationships over transactions, community over commerce.
Due to our limited production numbers, we are extending Membership to only 100 individuals for now in select states*. We invite you to become a Member while space is available.
Below you will find a list of Membership benefits. We have two tiers at this time based on a 6-bottle or 12-bottle semiannual commitment. Each shipment (Spring and Fall) will include approximately three different Limited tier wines ranging from $65 to $75 per bottle.
*California, Minnesota, Washington DC, and Florida
Priority Access to New Releases
Members gain first access to our newly released limited production wines, library wines, and large format wines (once bottled) before any other Brave & Maiden guests and collectors.
Shipping is included for purchases of 6 bottles or more. This includes your biannual release shipments and any orders placed online or over the phone.
Members enjoy complimentary private tastings for you and your guests at the estate each year.
Access to Member-only Spaces
Members have exclusive access to two areas at the estate: our private tasting room and the estate’s courtyard overlooking the vineyard.
Access to 2018 Grand Opening Events
The first 100 Members will be invited to hard hat tours of the estate as we approach opening day, as well as to our VIP grand opening party.
Access to Member-only Events
Members will receive invitations to private events at the estate, such as intimate winemaker dinners, futures tastings, and educational seminars. We will also host occasional off-site Membership events at some of the most exclusive locations around the United States for our out-of-state Members.
12-Bottle Membership includes access to our personal concierge service to enhance every aspect of your visit to the Santa Ynez Valley. From scheduling bespoke tasting experiences with us, to booking dinner reservations, to assisting with hotel or transportation bookings, our concierge is at your service. This benefit will be available upon opening of the winery, expected Q3 of 2018.
Complimentary Private Bookings
12-Bottle Membership includes complimentary bookings of our private tasting room for two hours per year for personal gatherings of up to twelve guests. Host a special birthday dinner, a group tasting and tour, or corporate off-site meeting at the estate.
*Effective upon our grand opening expected Q3 of 2018.
