Prospective Member FAQs

We believe our estate vineyards are the best sources for Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah. Our hand-crafted wines do not come from large-scale industrial manufacturing, but from a natural, smaller, and simpler process marrying artisan to agriculture. The vision for the Bergström Wine Club has always been one that resembles a farm share or community-supported agriculture (CSA) program. Membership ensures access to our portfolio of highly rated and small- production wines. Membership also comes with a generous benefits package.

  • First access to all wines and exclusive access to certain wines
  • Customizable allocations
  • Member savings on all wine purchases.
  • Shipping promotions based on membership level. Premiere members receive complimentary ground shipping!
  • Club Member visits to our estate
    • Complimentary “casual” club visit OR
    • Fully hosted and guided experience at special club member pricing. See our EXPERIENCES page for the most up-to-date information about tastings.

Yes! Approximately one week before your club allocation is processed, you will receive a club allocation notice email detailing your allocation and containing a prompt to log into your account where you can finalize your selections and/or add additional bottles.

Of course! We want to ensure that all members receive their ideal club allocation and get the most out of their membership. To confirm your preferences, our wine club manager will follow up with you via email shortly after you become a member.

Our club members enjoy member pricing on all wine purchases. This includes club member allocations as well as any additional wine purchases. Your specific savings depends on club member level.

Additional savings opportunities are available throughout the year!

Here are our average allocation prices by member level, as of 2022.

There are no enrollment or annual fees.

Each club cycle begins with a notification email and a one-week customization period. You may process your customized order at any time during that week. If you choose to not customize your allocation, the default allocation will be processed to the card on file at the end of the customization period.

Wines purchased and shipped prior to de-activation are not refundable.

We hope you will have the opportunity to enjoy our wines at each stage of their development in bottle. As Caroline Bergström will say: “There is a reason why wine is sold in cases!”

We craft wines that are vibrant and ready-to-drink upon release! There is a lot to love about young wines!

We also love our wines with some age! We have found that most of our wines begin to reach their secondary phase of development after approximately seven years of bottle ageing. That is why our annual library release celebrates the vintage seven years prior.

There will always be variation in our recommended drinking schedules from vintage to vintage and from cuvée to cuvée. That is part of what makes wine engaging and irresistible. Josh Bergström prepared this helpful vintage guide. Please do not hesitate to email us at with any specific questions.

Our club members are our best ambassadors. We invite you to share the one-time-use promo code MEMBER4ADAY with your friends and family so they can enjoy your club pricing on their first purchase.

As a club member, you receive first access to our small production wines before we release them to our general mailing list. Club allocations are charged in advance of shipping to secure these wines before they sell out. A delay between charging and shipping allows us to navigate any potential weather challenges. A detailed shipping schedule is contained in your club allocation confirmation.

If you have specific shipping requests, please contact us by emailing , calling 503-554-0463, or texting us at 503-837-2665.

It is of utmost importance that you receive your wine in pristine condition. Wine is a perishable good and its integrity is affected by exposure to hot or cold temperatures. When determining shipping schedules, we monitor the weather at point of origin, along the predicted transit route, and at the destination.

If these weather conditions are not conducive to shipping your wine, you will be immediately notified of a hold and presented with alternatives. If you are inquiring about a specific shipment, please contact us by emailing , calling 503-554-0463, or texting us at 503-837-2665.
