Wine Club

Thank you for your interest in Swiftwater Cellars Wine Club.

A membership at Swiftwater Cellars is unlike any other wine club membership. We value your support and commitment to our craft, and in recognition, we offer more than other wine clubs. In joining Swiftwater Cellars Wine Club, you become not just a member of a club, but rather a member of the Swiftwater Cellars Family.

Within our Wine Club, we have two tiers of membership for you to choose from. With each tier, you will receive a hand-picked selection of our in-house, handcrafted wines, created by our acclaimed winemaker, Andrew Wisniewski. You will also enjoy additional privileges and VIP service upon your visit to the winery or while dining in The Hoist House Restaurant. Your wine club membership discount is honored on all of your purchases in The Hoist House Restaurant, at The Boutique at Swiftwater Cellars and, of course, on any wine purchased by the glass, bottle, or to take home.

What if I do not like the wine(s) selected for me?

Our Winemakers attempt to hand select a variety of wines that will have an appeal to most members. Alternatively, you are able to customize your case, however custom cases will be charged full price with no member discount. We suggest that you at least give the Winemaker’s selections a try. You may be pleasantly surprised!

Can my wine club benefits be extended to someone else?

Club benefits are exclusive to the person or persons named on the account. They CANNOT be transferred to your children, friends etc.

Can I send someone in to pick up wine or gifts for me?

Yes, however all purchases should be made prior to their arrival for pickup. We can either charge the credit card on file or you may use an alternative card when placing the order. Please notify us of the date and name of the person(s) picking up your order.

How can I make changes to my wine club account?

If you need to update your account with new information such as a new address, new phone number, new credit card number or expiration date, club subscription, or will call, you may contact us by phone at 509-674-6555, by emailing the wine club at wineclub@swiftwatercellars.com, or by mail.

What happens if my wine club shipment is sent back to the winery?

We ship all our wines via UPS Ground with an estimate of 5-7 business days for delivery. We are unable to ship to a P.O. Box APO/FPO, and an adult signature is required at the time of delivery. We strongly suggest you provide a business address for shipments if you are away from home during the day. Address changes MUST be received by us prior to shipping. If you are unable to sign for your wine package on any of the 3 delivery attempts, UPS will return your package to Swiftwater Cellars. Reshipped wine will be at the cost of the club member.

How many guests can I bring with me to taste?

The tasting benefits that are a part of Swiftwater Cellars Wine Club Membership are available for up to four people including the member(s) who must be present at the time of the tasting.

If I can’t make it to the winery, can I have someone else pick up my wine for me?

Yes, absolutely! Be sure to give us a call with the name of the person picking up prior to their arrival, so that we can make notes on your account. This is to ensure that your wine is leaving the winery with the correct person.

How long will the winery hold my wines for pick up if I can’t make a release?

From the date of the release, members have a 4 month grace period to pick up their selection, after which the members will be contacted via e-mail notifying them that the selection will be shipped to the address on file.

How long does my wine club membership last?

Your Swiftwater Cellars Wine Club membership lasts for as long as you wish it to continue. There is no annual fee and your only obligation is to purchase the cases of wine your membership level commits you to. We do ask that you partake in the first wine release after your initial sign up. After this point, you are free to cancel your membership at any point.

What benefits do I receive as a wine club member?

Each level of our Wine Club program offers a number of benefits, which vary depending on your membership level. See the above description of each membership option for more detail.
