The Privileges of Membership at Orange Coast Winery

Bottles of wine-flavored memories

“Membership has its privileges” was the theme of the American Express credit card from 1987 to 1996. If you’re old enough to remember, the card’s previous tagline from 1974 to 1987 was “Do you know me?” With apologies and due credit to AMEX, both statements also apply to Orange Coast Winery’s wine clubs.

Membership really does have is privileges. There are two specific clubs that offer you the best way to extend your enjoyment of our sterling collection of award-winning wines. Let’s take a look at the benefits of the Yacht Club and the Beach Club memberships.

Beach Club

It’s perfect timing. Just as the recollection starts to fade, you’ll be able to rekindle the amazing memories you had tasting the featured wines at Orange Coast. Was it that ES Zinfandel that left fruity footprints on your tongue? Or was it the Sauvignon Blanc and the citrusy lemon-grass veil it draped across your nose?

You’ll be able to renew these memories and have new tastes make more of them with 8 in-house tastings of Orange Coast’s full wine list for you and a guest. Your membership also grants you exclusive access to the Orange Coast members’ room, where you’ll receive 20% off all wine, food, and merchandise. The members’ room is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Orange Coast Beach Club members are among the first to be notified of private events, new wine release parties, and more. Membership is a bimonthly charge of just $66 billed in February, April, June, August, October, and December – the credit that accumulates in your account can be used to purchase food and your favorite wines at the members’ discount rate.

Yacht Club

Prepare to enter an unexpected level of service when you opt for Orange Coast Winery’s exclusive top-end membership. When you’re ready to return to Orange Coast Winery for a visit, you’ll be treated to a flight of 8 wines for you and 3 guests. The wines (and, in all likelihood, the guests) will be selected specifically based on your tastes, and served with a complimentary plate of cheeses.

This is likely to engage your appetite for more, so your Yacht Club membership also entitles you to 20% off all wine, food, and merchandise as you relax in the Orange Coast Winery members’ room. While it occasionally opens during the week, this exclusive area of the winery usually only welcomes members on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Yacht Club members are at the top of the list for news about upcoming private events, new wines, as well as wine release parties. Your $125 wine credit is billed bi-monthly each February, April, June, August, October, and December, and you can attend one of our quarterly pick-up parties or drop in anytime to pick up your custom wine selection.

But what about…?

Ah, yes. How does “Do you know me?” apply?

It works for Orange Coast Winery just as it did for the famous credit card. Things hit a different level when you’re a private member. The staff takes the time to get to know you. Your preferences are remembered and met with customized choices. And your transition from the outside to this special world of wine is only possible by the privileges that come with a Beach Club or Yacht Club membership.
