Tennessee Department of Agriculture says Wine Club Memberships are Golden This Year


The Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – Gold is always a good idea for the holidays. It was one of the original Christmas gifts, after all. This year the gift of a wine club membership from a Tennessee winery is particularly golden—as in gold medal award winning.

Knoxville recently hosted the southeast regional Wines of the South competition. In a blind competition among 274 wines from 42 wineries, Tennessee wines won 3 out of  8 “Best of” awards:  Best Rose’, Best Red, and Best Muscadine.

Tennessee wineries earned a total of 148 medals, including 21 gold medals and another 22 Concordance Gold medals. To win Concordance Gold, all 5 judges must rank the wine as worthy of a gold medal.

Such accolades make the idea of giving local wines as holiday gifts undeniably golden. One of the easiest and best ways to give a selection of Tennessee’s award-winning wines is through a wine club membership.

Wine club members receive by mail a predetermined number and type of wines from a winery either monthly, quarterly, or twice a year. When wine club memberships are purchased online as a gift, recipients are notified via email. Club members choose for themselves the types of wines they’ll receive. Since most Tennessee wineries use a number of local fruits and grapes, every shipment can hold a new flavor experience.

Members may also receive discounts on additional wine, invitations to special members-only events, discounts on purchases from the winery’s gift shop, and even exclusive wines made just for members. Every Tennessee winery offers membership, so members may be paired with wineries close to home to take advantage of every aspect of their gift.
