January wine club newsletter

Winter Wine Club Selections Available 1/29/16

We will be processing your Winter Wine Club Selections beginning on Wednesday, January 20th.  Please let us know as soon as possible if any of your account information needs to be updated.  We know many credit cards have been replaced in order to include the new chip and pin technology, so please do let us know if you've gotten a new card number recently.

Please note that due to the lengthy process involved in increasing our production, our Wine Club is now closed to new memberships in order to guarantee wine will be available to each and every member.  If we are unable to reach you for updated information required to process your shipments, your membership will be canceled after two missed quarters in order to allow those on our wait list an opportunity to join the Wine Club.  We appreciate your understanding!

Those of you who have chosen to pick up your wines at Vina Moda may do so on or after January 29th.  Just a reminder that we are located at 147 Main Street, Murphys, and are open Friday through Sunday, noon until five in the evening.  We will be sending wines out on Thursday, January 28th to members who have chosen to have their selections shipped.

Please visit the Quarterly Wine Selections tab on the Vina Moda website to view the list of wines for our various membership levels, as well as the approximate cost that will be billed to the credit card we have on file for you.
