Cheers to App State!
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.
