Cheers to App State!

Hand-crafted limited production Napa Valley wines made exclusively for Appalachian State University. 20% of proceeds are given back to App State.

1899 Club

Membership financially supports Appalachian State University!

Since 1899 and with a shared vision of our founders of helping children in North Carolina’s “lost provinces” discover educational opportunity to match the splendor of the mountains in which they lived, Appalachian State University has distinguished itself as the premier public undergraduate institution in the state of North Carolina and is known for its special combination of people and place.

Those who join the 1899 Club will receive handcrafted, limited-production wines that arrive at your door in a vintage fire-branded wooden crate that is handmade exclusively for Appalachian State University.

Club Format and Cost

In order to receive discounted shipments and additional lifestyle benefits, you must be a member of 1899 Club. A $50 one-time, non-refundable deposit will be processed to secure your 1st shipment only. This deposit will be deducted from your 1st club shipment cost. Wines are released in two 3-Bottle or 6-bottle shipments each year based on the club level you select. The cost will range based on your selections. The cost of a bottle ranges from $35 to $75 + tax & shipping.
Each club shipment for 3-bottle members will arrive in a cardboard shipper that can be upgraded to a fire-branded Appalachian State University wooden crate for a discounted price of $25 ($50 Value). All club shipments for 6-bottle members will arrive in a wooden crate at no additional cost ($99 Value). Except for your one-time, non-refundable $50 deposit, your card will not be charged until the Release date. Again, the $50 deposit will be deducted from your 1st shipment cost.
Each club shipment can also include a special welcome package and gift at no additional cost ($30 Value). Additionally, you can completely customize your wine selections! New, library and special edition wines will be offered. There is no long-term commitment, and you may cancel at any time.
Please review 1899 club member levels and benefits on comparison matrix presented on the Club page. Enjoy your wine and remember, when you share a glass, gift a bottle or visit the Fairwinds tasting room in Napa Valley together, you are supporting Appalachian State University!
