What’s An Average Day Owning a Wine Club?
It’s a question we actually get on a fairly regular basis-what’s the average day that you experience owning a wine club?
I get it, people picture me driving around from vineyard to vineyard and drinking wine. Yeah, it’s like that a few days a month and that’s why we do the rest of it. Finding 90 point wines for reasonable prices (especially from wineries making under 2k cases per year) leads us pretty well off the beaten path. Instead of 5-6 appointments a day like most casual wine tourists, we tend to be able to fit in only 3.
Mostly, we work on the computer, or in our warehouse packing boxes. All the usual caveats of a small business definitely apply. Sometimes I am the shipping coordinator. Sometimes I am the lead customer service associate. Sometimes I am the marketing department. Sometimes I feel like someone who founded a business.
All that is to say simply thank you for your support. We greatly appreciate it and hope to continue to reward you with quality wines well into the future.
