Which wines will be included in the Wine Club shipments?

A third of every shipment will include our current release Akarua Pinot Noir. The rest of the shipment will be made up of at least two other seasonal varietals.

How do I know which wines will be included in each shipment?
In the month prior to each shipment you will be advised by email of the wines to be included in the up coming shipment. These wines will be automatically forwarded to you unless you request to customise your order at least 2 weeks prior to the shipping date.

How do I pay for my Wine Club shipments?
The cost of each shipment together with any applicable shipping costs will be charged to the credit card submitted with your membership application. This charge will be made in the first week of the month of each shipment prior to the dispatch of your wine.

Can I change my Wine Club order at any time?
If you are a 12 or 6 bottle member you can change your Wine Club order at any time up to 2 weeks prior to any shipping date. We will notify you of any resulting change to the amount to be charged to your credit card.

Can I change my Wine Club membership status?
You can upgrade your membership status or change to another membership option at any time up to 2 weeks prior to any shipping date.

Do I have to take every quarterly shipment?
We appreciate that some members may from time to time accumulate more wine than they need, so you may skip a shipment by notifying us up to 2 weeks prior to the shipment date without penalty.

What if I decide I don’t want to be a member of the Wine Club anymore?
After one year membership can be cancelled by written notice at any time up to 2 weeks prior to any shipping date. You may also choose to place your membership on hold (for a maximum of 12 months) rather than cancelling, which will enable you to continue to receive our newsletters and enjoy all other exclusive membership benefits until you choose to recommence your quarterly shipments

Can I pick up my wine from the winery instead of having it shipped to me?

Yes. If you would rather pick up your wines from our Bannockburn winery you can select that option when specifying your shipment information.

What are the benefits of Wine Club membership other than discounts on wine purchases?
The Akarua Wine Club is more than just a discount buying scheme – we want you to enjoy all of the other benefits of belonging to our club – and we are continuing to work on the development of more new benefits and member only events for the enjoyment of our members:
