Saturday, October 1, we’ll be getting all of our Vine Club Members together on Lakeside Lawn with LIVE MUSIC from Ken Wenzel, lawn games, and tastings of some exclusive wines!  This is the perfect chance to socialize with fellow Vine Club Members, taste through some awesome wines, and enjoy the day as we toast the end of summer and the bountiful harvest at hand.  We’ll be pouring some of the wines in the current Vine Club package, as well as having some exclusive pre-releases and limited wines available for purchase (D9 anyone?)!  Picnic tables will be set up on the lawn, so bring your picnic and get ready to have some fun!

Quarter 1 Vine Club Blending Session Party
 
It’s back!  One of our most popular Vine Club events returns this March, as we hold our Quarter 1 Vine Club Blending Session Party!  This is a chance for you to have a say in the winemaking process, as the winning blends will be bottled and included in 2017’s Vine Club selections as Winemakers Select Bin Wines.
 
Quarter 1 Vine Club Blending Session
Saturday, March 12 and Saturday, March 19
11:00 am (SHARP!) – 3:00 pm
Great Room
$75 per person
Limited to 36 people each day
Make reservations for March 12 HERE and for March 19 HERE
 
If you attended this event two years ago, you already are aware of how fascinating, educational, and utterly tasty this Blending Session is.  Pretty much every wine in the world is a blend of some sort and to start with we plan to touch on explaining that philosophy and why even single variety wines are usually blends.
 
Led by Tarara Winemaker Jordan Harris, you will taste and learn about the component wines as well as the reasons and processes used in blending.  After that, each table comprising a team will take time to create one blend to be submitted for the competition for all to taste.  And since we can’t have you taste and judge effectively on an empty stomach, we’ll serve you lunch provided by the Wine Kitchen.  Choose from one of the following at check out: Beef Shepherd Pie with small side salad;  Tuscan-style Roast Chicken with herb couscous; or Ricotta Ravioli with winter root vegetables. Mmm, tasty!
 
Make reservations for March 12 HERE and for March 19 HERE

Don’t wait to reserve your spot, this event WILL sell out!  We hope to see you there!

Be sure to mark your calendars!

Now for the fun stuff!

And don’t forget about the savings that you enjoy if you pre-pay for your Vine Club Membership or simply buy into another membership! 
 
You can save more than your normal discount of 15% by purchasing additional packs (essentially getting another club membership) for 20% off of the normal price.  Not only will this provide you better savings than you would receive if purchasing normally in the retail store, but also will give you more access to the limited wines that are only made available in these club packs.  As a bonus, this will also allow you to bring two more people for complimentary tastings per club and two more season tickets for the concerts.  This really is a great value!
 
If you pay for your whole year of membership all at once rather than quarterly, you would receive an extra 5% off the price of the Vine Club Membership - bonus! If you’d like to take advantage of either of these opportunities, please contact either Kim Parker or Bryan Winfrey or give us a call at 703-771-7100 and we’ll be more than happy to help.

Vine Club Lounge
Bottle and food service for Vine Club Members 
Great Room at Tarara
Every Sunday
1PM - 5PM 
(21 and over. Please no outside food.) 


Bin Wines from the Library available!
In order to better serve our Vine Club Members, we have changed the focus of the Vine Club Lounge to offering bottle and food service exclusively, rather than wine tastings. It is our goal to be able to provide our Vine Club Members with a unique space of their own to relax on Sunday afternoons, away from the hustle and bustle of the tables in the Tasting Room downstairs.  This enhances our ability to do so.

Vine Club Members are, as always, invited to enjoy a wine tasting in the Tasting Room, and are then welcome to move upstairs to enjoy the afternoon, some good wine, and good times. Members are also welcome to bypass the tasting and after checking in at the front desk, head upstairs to relax with this bottle and table service.
 
We would still ask that all guests be 21 years of age (no children please) and that no outside food be brought upstairs to the Lounge.

Why Join the Vine Club? Why Not!
  •  If you want to relax, have fun with friends or meet new friends Tarara is the place to go. Their friendly staff, nice wines and imaginative entertainment not to mention the lovely setting makes this our goto vineyard. We particularly enjoy their "Friday Night Flights" for a great way to end the week. Congratulations to management, staff and winemaker!
- Jim and Carly Guy
  • As wine club members for over 2 years, we have thoroughly enjoyed the great wine, beautiful scenery, and the fabulous people that work there. We have had the pleasure of meeting Margaret who treated us more like family than guests in her home. We have also had many great times at the summer concerts. We continue to bring our friends and family to the winery and they love it as much as we do.  Looking forward to more great wine and times ahead!
- Rick and Mona Reid
  • Since joining the Wine Club in March 2005, we’ve enjoyed watching and participating in the “evolution” of Tarara. The wines are fantastic, the Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and very creative when producing both our Club events as well as public events, and we always enjoy our visits.
- Brian and Frannie Shreve
  • Tarara is to wine what Woodstock was to rock music... Big, Bold, Epic!
- Kim and Jim Ries
  • I have been a vine club member for 10 years. We have seen Tarara grow into a wonderful winery. It's always great to spend time there with wonderful employees, awesome wines, and meeting new people. It's also exciting to get to taste all the new releases. Thanks to everyone that has made Tarara what it is today.
- Tim Jellison
  • There are so many nice things to say about Tarara.  Happy 25th Anniversary, Tarara!  We’ve been enjoying Tarara wines since our first visit 24 years ago. Need we say more?!
