  1. Log in to website
  2. Renew your membership if not already - SEE INSTRUCTIONS AT EMAIL AT BOTTOM

If you have any questions about a vineyard, contact the vineyard focal listed in the vineyard description write-up or, for general questions, contact Grape Procurement Coordinators Joe Enright (This email address is being protected from spambots.

**Open Enrollment - Open enrollment period is when any order placed for a vineyard/varietal will have equal priority to other orders for that vineyard/varietal.  If the orders exceed available grapes or if there are shortages at harvest time, those shortages will be spread among open enrollment orders in an equitable manner.  Those who order after open enrollment have lower priority and will not get grapes if the vineyard has sold out or will have lower priority if there are shortages at harvest time (i.e. will be impacted first).  You can still place orders after open enrollment but run the risk of not getting what you want.  PLUS it is helpful for the club and our standing with our vineyards to order as early as possible.  

Time to start ordering grapes for 2018!  Time sensitive!

GRAPE ORDERING (open enrollment) time period:

  • Corvus Vineyard:       Opens today and Closes Friday, March 15th for Mourvedre and March 23rd for Cabernet Sauvignon (ENDS EARLY)
  • All other Vineyards:   Opens Saturday, March 10th and Closes Saturday, March 31st 

Note- You can place orders after open enrollment closes however those orders have less priority than orders placed during open enrollment in the event of grape shortage at harvest. 

All open enrollment orders have equal priority.

PRICING:  2018 pricing for Corvus isn’t 100% firm but will be similar to last year.  Pricing on the remaining vineyards is still in work but will likely be similar to last year as well.  Please be flexible with any price increase made during open enrollment; you’ll have an opportunity to cancel or change your order.

ORDER GRAPES using the website system, same as last year.  Please note that our ordering process uses Google Forms.  Boeing firewalls block access to Google Forms so you must access registration from a personal computer or mobile device (you shouldn't be ordering from work anyhow!) If you log into Google before submitting your order, you'll be able to access it later!

After logging into the BEWBC site, Follow the links on the site described below.
