About The Club…

The idea is simple:

I want to give you access to some of Oregon’s finest wines from small producers that are rarely (if ever) found on supermarket shelves.  Worldwide interest in Oregon wines is reaching fever level, and yet it’s difficult to find bottles from anything other than the largest producers in your local bottle shop.  I’m here to give you access to the good stuff!

Your online passport to Oregon wine

Backroads Wine Club is your online passport to the winding gravel roads of Oregon where talented young winemakers are putting out amazing small-batch Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and more.

Each year, I take scores of people on tours through Oregon Wine Country with my other company – Backcountry Wine Tours.  Everyone falls in love with the boutique wines tasted throughout the day, but many would complain to me that they weren’t able to find the wines they had discovered when they got back home.  So I’ve taken it upon myself to create a wine club in which I bring the Backroads to you!  Think of it as a “Wine Tour in a Box.”

How the wine club works:

If you’ve ever joined a wine club at a winery, you already know the template for this.  If not, here’s how it works:

  • First, you join the club by visiting the Club Options page and choosing the type of club that suits you.  If you have questions about any of the clubs, contact me!
  • You will then be prompted to select how many bottles you want per shipment (6 or 12)
  • After that, enter your Shipping and Billing information – YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED AT THIS TIME.  There is no fee to join!
  • Your card will be charged 1 month prior to the next “Allotment Date.”
  • When the next “Allotment Date” comes, your wines will be packaged up according to the club you have chosen, and the wine will be shipped to the address you have provided.  You will receive an email notifying you of your shipment including Parcel Tracking info.
  • Allotment Dates are April 1st and October 1st.  As such, cards on file will be charged on March 1st and September 1st.  Please note, the actual shipping date may be different based on weather conditions.  We will not ship if there’s any danger of your wines being damaged in transit!
  • When you get your wines, you will also receive a newsletter written by yours truly with a list of each wine you have received, tasting notes, and a short story and/or description of each label and bottling.  This is the fun part where you get to learn about new wines and wineries and winemakers!
  • You may cancel your membership at any time at no extra charge, or you may put your membership on “hiatus” if necessary.
