After working hard for about 6 years with my events Covid19 came early in March and changed all the plans I had.

Virtual events became the order of the day. During this difficult time, I had to think differently about how we go about hosting our events.

The Vines Club was an idea that I had early in the year by introducing the patrons to an APP that would have rewarded them with discounts, specials, points and stamps for participating in my events. Covid19 put a dead stop to this as all our events where and are still canceled.

Not sure with when we will be able to host events as we did, I decided to relaunch The Vines Club as a Social Club with all the benefits that the app would have had.

As a member of The Vines Social Club you will have access to the following:

– Two social runs/walks every month. Venues and distances will be confirmed in time for you to make your decision on where you would like to join us.

– Discounts on longer 2 to 5-day breakaways to run/walk at unique venues.

– Discounts, specials, rewards, stamps and points at Wine Estates, Merchandise Retailers, Lifestyle Adventure Activities, Craft Beer and lots more.

– Discounts on our virtual Taste and Dine The Vines from different world class Wine Estates.

Cost – R250 per month. Signed yearly debit order.

The Vines Club will launch on the 1st of September 2020 with the following social gatherings taking place at stunning venues:

12 September – Wildeberg Wines – Opening of a new 5km trail for runners and hikers that was completed in August 2020. Only 50 patrons per day will be able to join us for a special experience with good food and wine at Wildeberg. R50 permit fee for trails is included.
