The Signal, the Courier’s sister paper in Santa Clarita, Calif., recently started the Signal Wine Club, and the Courier has agreed to partner with the Signal and make membership available to its readers.
The club gives residents in Liberty and Long counties and the surrounding areas a chance to sample award-winning, artisan wines from California shipped to their home, Courier Publisher Mark Griffin said.
Memberships include monthly shipments of two bottles of wine — one each of red and white wine — for $49.95 per month, which includes shipping and handling.
To join, go to coastalcouriercom.com and click on the “Signal Wine Club” banner ad, or go to the “Deals” section on the site and click on “Wine Club” in the dropdown menu.
“There are no terms or conditions of being a member,” Griffin said. “No one is locked in to a specific period of time. If you enjoy great wine and tasting vintages not easily available to us in south Georgia, it’s a great opportunity to become a member without any risk.”
With each shipment, members also receive a copy of the magazine “Uncorked,” which describes the wines members receive and includes stories about California’s rich vineyards.
Club members also get a review of the wines shipped each month, written by California winemaker and newspaper columnist Russ Briley.
If members like the wines they receive, they’ll be able to order more of the same vintage. And wine lovers also have the opportunity to buy other high-end wines through the club, Briley said.
