Try before you buy

We encourage you to join us as a guest including paying the guest price for events before you join. So feel free to attend one or two events to make sure. After that sign-up and well you’ll receive all the benefits of membership.

Cost to members

We try to keep the cost to members as affordable as possible. Our subscriptions are $25/year, and our door charge is between $10 to $20 each event, depending on the support offered by the presenters, covers the cost of wines we are tasting on the night, light supper, room hire & presenter gifts.

Cellar Club Glasses

In an endeavour to reduce the amount of washing of club glasses, we just wanted to remind all members are expected to bring your own glasses to tastings. We recommend the standard 215ml wine taster glass as shown here. The club will continue to provide glasses for guests and the occasional club member who forgets.

If you wish to purchase 6 of these for $18, please contact Wayne and he will either drop them off to you or bring them to the next tasting. Sadly the suppliers of the glasses no longer provide boxed sets, so you will need to find/provide your own solution for taking them to and from tastings.
