How do I use it? Once you have purchased your membership, you will receive your physical membership card in the mail (1 card is issued per 2 person membership). To take advantage of an offer, Participating Wineries will require you show your membership card when you visit. A virtual or printable alternative to using your membership card is not available.

Are there any Blackout Dates? Members may redeem their member offers during operational winery hours so long as they are open to the public. While their are no specific “Blackout Dates”, many wineries will occasionally close to the the public for weddings, private events, or ticketed & wine club-only events. These are infrequent, but when the winery is closed to the public, Passport Members will not be able to visit. BACK TO TOP ↑
