For wine lovers who wish they had more time to research and try new bottles, Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley is offering its Club Vin du Soleil, a new club membership that delivers quality, limited-production wines to your door. After an extensive vetting process of about 200 mostly local wines per week, Auberge du Soleil’s wine director, Kris Margerum, selects four to six different bottles to send to members each quarter. In addition to the wine, club members also receive invitations to private events and wine tastings, preferred restaurant seating, and a subscription to Auberge Resorts’ magazine.
Membership is offered at three levels that range from the basic offerings, or the Cru ($325 quarterly), to the Premiere Cru ($600 quarterly) and the Grand Cru ($1,200 quarterly), whose members are greeted with a bottle of sparkling wine and discounts on Auberge du Soleil hotel rooms, restaurants, and spa treatments.
