Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to join the Wildcat Creek Winery Wine Clubs?

There is no fee to join any of our wine clubs.

What is the minimum commitment of shipments for my membership?

Your minimum membership commitment is 4 shipments per year of 6 preselected bottles of wine.  These shipments occur in February, May, August, & November upon sign-up.

 

How long does my membership last?

Wine club shipments auto-renew with members' information on file without notice of cancellation.

 

Can I skip a shipment or pause my subscription?

Yes! If you need to skip a shipment, you can email us at wineclub@wildcatcreekwinery.com

Is there a cancellation fee associated with canceling my wine club membership prior to my commitment being met?

There is no cancellation fee.  However, membership cancellation must be made in writing 30 days before the next quarterly shipment to avoid being charged for that shipment. You can email us at wineclub@wildcatcreekwinery.com to cancel your membership. We do reserve the right to cancel membership or refuse sale of wine for any reason. 

 

What is the cost of the shipments in each club?

The cost of each shipment will vary.  Members can expect their shipment costs to range between $70 - $120 before taxes and shipping charges.  Club shipment costs are subject to change without notice.

 

What types of wines are in each club shipment?

Each shipment will consist of a collection of pre-selected wines.  Wines on the drier side will include a variety of dry red, white, and occasionally an off-dry wine or two. Wines on the sweeter side will include a variety of sweet red, white, rosé and fruit wines.  Seasonal wines will be included when available.  You will receive an email that describes what we are sending.  You will have the ability to make changes in your wine shipment if you so desire. 

 

Can I customize my shipment? What if I want to order more than six bottles?

Yes! You are free to swap out anything you want in your upcoming shipment. You may also add more than the standard six bottles to your shipment.

How soon will I know what is included in my club shipments?

A club email will be sent to you in the week or two before the pickup or shipping date in a release month.  Your club email will outline selected club wines, new releases, and a chance to update your personal billing and shipping information 1-2 weeks prior to your card being charged.  You will have the opportunity to customize your shipment at that time.

 

When will my card get charged for my club shipments?

We charge four times per year for club shipments.  Charges will occur 5 days before the official release date, so make sure you make any desired changes to your order before then. All club releases automatically send order confirmations to your email for your records.

 

If I reside in Indiana, may I opt-in to be a pick-up member?

Yes, we allow local members to pick up their club shipments at our tasting room located in Lafayette.  Members will have 7 days after the release date to pick up their order.  You may also have a friend or family member - per your permission -  pick up your club shipment on your behalf.  We just ask to be sent an email so we may note your account.  Friends or family members may not attend wine club pick-up parties on your behalf.

If pick-up time exceeds 7 days, we will automatically ship your wine to you.  However, if you have elected for pick up and do not pick up your release within 7 days, you will be charged a shipping fee.

 

How soon will I receive my club shipment if it is to be shipped?

Wine club shipments may take a few days to ship during high-volume club months.  We appreciate your patience during this busy time.  We email a UPS tracking number to the email you have on file allowing you to track your package.  Note: club shipments are not an immediate turnaround and are subject for hold due to any weather or inventory constraints per the winery’s decision.

 

What address do I use for my club shipments?

We highly encourage business addresses or UPS pick-up locations as the best shipping address.  We can still ship to home addresses, but someone over the age of 21 must be present to sign for your wine club shipment.  To select an alternative address for your shipments, search online for UPS pick-up locations in your area. 

 

What happens if my wine club shipment gets sent back to the winery?

UPS will make 3 attempts to deliver your wine shipment.  If your shipment is not signed for it will be sent back to the winery and the club member will be charged for the return shipping fee and for the new shipping fee. 

 

What if I end up with a corked or damaged bottle(s) of wine in my club shipment?

We try our best to replace 100% of corked or damaged wine for you.  Wildcat Creek Winery has the right to investigate or decide to replace any wine shipments that have been reported as lost, stolen, or damaged per our discretion.  Please email us at wineclub@wildcatcreekwinery.com as soon as possible to report the status of your wine order.

 

Do you offer any case discounts or discounts on the wines?

By law we are unable to provide additional wine discounts to wine club members beyond our standard 10% discount on half cases and 15% off 1 - 3 cases. Please take advantage of wine club perks like free tastings for you and a guest, discounts on food, apparel and merchandise.  Discounting does not apply to Indiana Artisan consignment merchandise.

Wildcat Creek Winery will not ship your wine when temperatures reach above 90 degrees or below 40 degrees. Your order will be packed and sent out once it is safe.  Our shipping department will send you an email with the tracking number once your wine leaves the winery.  Our packages are sent via UPS ground.  Orders being shipped to states that experience extreme winter weather will be delayed until weather subsides.
