THE "FELLOWSHIP OF THE ROCK" WINE CLUB
THERE IS A TIME TO COME
After much contemplation and thought, we have decided to terminate the wine club. Our goal is to provide great wine at reasonable prices. We strongly believe in providing a product that has a great price to value ratio.
Our 2015 Merlot, 2015 Cabernet Franc and 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon releases have received huge awards at national competitions this past year. Our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon received a Double Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition and a 95-point rating. Given these awards, the price of our wines at our regular prices provide a “great value” compared to wines that have received similar awards.
However, we want our wines to be an everyday part of your life. To make this happen, we will continue to have our “flash sale” promotions and our everyday 50% off mix and match case promotion. These promotions make our wines a “super value.”
The price of our wine in the wine club shipments does not make sense when compared to the price of our wines in our promotions. Wine club members have been bypassing the wine club shipments and instead have been buying mixed cases of wine at the promotion prices.
We have decided to become a web-based wine sales organization following the industry trend for small wineries. However, our tasting room in Wilbur will be open on the Saturday of a flash sale weekend. This will enable you to buy our wine without incurring shipping charges, taste our current release wines, enjoy our famous Whitestone White Chili and other munchies, and socialize with fellow “Whitestone” wine lovers.
We pray that you will continue to enjoy our wines by purchasing them on our website and make them an everyday wine in your life! Thank you so much for your loyalty and buying our wines. Judy and Walter Haig.
