NEW AND EXCITING: THE WINETHUSIAST CLUB
On Sept. 1, 2021, the 40-year-old Society is launching an innovative, varietal-specific wine club for the first time ever – the WINETHUSIAST Club!
“I wanted to create a new opportunity for our winery members to connect directly with wine-loving consumers,” OWFS General Manager, Elan Morris, said. “What makes our wine club unique is that WINETHUSIASTs will be able to view Varietal of the Month videos and learn about the wines included in the monthly wine packs prior to purchasing shipments.”
Morris continued, “These wine shipments will include wines from many different wineries. So, for those, who just can’t get enough of their favourite varietal and want to learn the differences brand to brand, this club is for them.”
WINETHUSIAST Club members will be able to:
- learn from BC winemakers through educational “Varietal of the Month” videos that speak to what makes their wines unique and extraordinary
- purchase optional monthly, varietal-specific wine shipments to their door
- receive discounts to OWFS Signature Events
- register to attend complimentary pre-event VIP wine tastings
- access discounts and giveaways from Okanagan Valley businesses
- learn about BC wine through Spotlight!, a curated collection of wine-related content including articles, podcasts, and videos
- and more
Sign up for OWFS’s newsletter to be one of the first to join the club!
