Few things can top sipping a glass of excellent wine on a relaxed afternoon at Medaloni Cellars in Lewisville. Located just 10 minutes outside of the bustle of downtown Winston-Salem, true connoisseurs of Medaloni’s superior wine collection also know that joining the vineyard’s exclusive Wine Club brings even more rewards and plenty of good times! Savoring your favorite Medaloni wine in the comfort of your own home, for one, and knowing in advance what delightful new offerings are just around the corner.
Lucky Wine Club members are privy to the winery’s newest introductions in advance, and Sunday, November 4, marks the next Wine Club tasting, where winemaker – and visionary – Joey Medaloni will personally oversee a delightful tasting through the wonderful new releases. He loves the chance to interact with Wine Club members and enjoys hosting these exclusive club tastings while sharing his knowledge of the industry, and the nuances that make his wines unique. Having spent several months in Bordeaux, France, before establishing the vineyard in 2011, and opening to the public in 2012, Joey learned from the best and passionately cultivated his own winemaking skills.
“There are new wine releases every three months,” explains Wine Club manager Alyssa Tull, who coordinates club events with members who reside all over the United States. The group celebrated its one-year anniversary this fall, with approximately 200 members who know and fully appreciate the art of fine wine. Perks and other specials for members include a 10% discount on the order of three bottles every three months, a 15% discount on six bottles every three months, and a 20% discount (plus free shipping) on a case order.
“Becoming a member of the Wine Club – which is absolutely free to join – is a great opportunity because you’re paying for wine you’d be buying anyway, but with the advantage of discounts and special outings,” says Alyssa. Members can mix whites and reds within their order, stick with a tried-and-true favorite, or enjoy the chance to give the newest introductions a try as well. Wine Club membership is the ideal way to expand your palate a bit, and discover a brand new favorite every three months.
Truly a feast for all the senses, Medaloni Cellars sits on over 20 acres of land and walking trails that overlook the Blue Ridge Mountains, and is situated right at the beginning of the Yadkin Valley Wine Trail. Joey and his staff blend experience in the hospitality industry with their passion for winemaking, creating the perfect venue for weddings and private parties, plus there are cozy rental cabins for fun and relaxation right on the property. But amazing wine remains the heart of the business.
“Our wine sets us apart from other wineries, it’s as simple as that,” says Alyssa, who encourages visitors to the vineyard to join the Wine Club for fun, fellowship, and a chance to share their love of good wines.
