December 2014 Newsletter

Wine Club Billing Schedule

We have a very important announcement regarding the Quarterly Wine Club Billing schedule. Beginning in 2015 we will be processing the Quarterly Wine Club shipments in the following months: April, June, September and December.

The March shipment will be sent in April moving forward.

Many of you are away during March (March Break, snowbirds, work travellers, etc.), and a large number of you have requested to receive your shipments in April rather than March.

Please note that this change affects the Quarterly Clubs only. Obviously, monthly memberships will continue on their normal schedule and Home for the Holidays packages will continue to rotate between March and April, depending on when Easter falls in that particular year.

Please reach out to the Wine Club team 905-468-4637 x 5630 if you have any questions.

Important Revisions to Wine Club Member Benefits

As the Wine Club program evolves, we are constantly looking for ways to improve & redefine the benefits for you. Beginning this summer, we enhanced the Jackson-Triggs Amphitheatre program to offer Advanced Seating (from anywhere in the concert bowl) and we have expanded our Mini-Events programming so that you will have seasonal, monthly (October-March), complimentary wine and food pairing opportunities. Additionally, we have also revised our complimentary tasting benefit: we want you to come and visit our wineries, and please taste while you’re here – but moving forward, you will be limited to one Icewine flight per couple per visit.

Jackson-Triggs Amphitheatre 2015

We’ve already started planning for the 2015 Amphitheatre concert season. Watch your email for the lineup and release date in late March/early April 2015.
