In 2018 we are endeavoring to improve our events for you our valued members, with a greater selection and a better quality of wines, and with better speakers and educational offers when we have them. In recent years we have seen a large drop off in membership, and membership dues are one of the ways we fund our advocacy and educational programs. This year we are raising our tasting prices, but we have put together a cost schedule that will allow you to forgo that raise, by bringing us more potentially members. We are now implementing a $5 increase in tasting prices, but if you bring in guests to our tasting your cost will be zero, and even if you pay for your quests tasting that cost will be only what the combined member and guest price from 2107 would have been. This may sound confusing so read the details below.
Member Price – $10 without an accompanying non-member guest. If a member brings a non-member guest then member tastes for free ($0) and the guest pays the non-member price of $15 (see guest pricing below). If a member brings a non-member household couple the member still tastes for free and the couple pays a guest couple price of $25.
Non-Member/Guest Pricing – $15: Non-members and individual non-member guests pay $15 for our tastings. Non-member guest couples pay $25 for our tastings (non-member non-guest couples pay $15 each). All of these prices may be discounted (see discount).
Non-Member/Guest Membership Pricing Discount – If on the day of the tasting the individual non-member or the individual guest decides that they would like to join Nevada Vines and Wines, the amount they paid ($15) for the tasting will go toward the normal membership cost of $25. Therefore for an extra $10 the individual may become a member and in essence the new member gets that days tasting for free.
If on the day of the tasting the guest couple decides that they would like to join Nevada Vines and Wines, the amount they paid ($25) for the tasting will go toward the normal membership cost of $40. If a non-member non-guest couple decides that they would like to join Nevada Vines and Wines, the amount they paid ($30) for the tasting will go toward the normal membership cost of $40. Therefore for an extra amount the couple may become members and in essence gets 2 tastings that day for free.
