Signal Wine Club launched this week, announced by Russ Briley, director of product sales and distribution for The Signal.

The club gives local residents a chance to sample award-winning, boutique artisan wines without making three- to eight-hour treks into California’s wine country, he said.

Memberships include monthly shipments of two bottles of wine — one bottle each of red and white wine — for $49.95 per month including shipping and handling.

“There are no terms or conditions of being a member,” Briley said. “No one is locked in to a specific period of time. So it’s a great opportunity to become a member without any risk.”

With each shipment, members also receive a copy of the magazine Uncorked, describing the wines members receive and including stories about California’s rich vineyards and wine tasting opportunities.

Unlike other wine clubs, however, members of the Signal Wine Club will receive a personal review of the wines written by local winemaker and columnist Briley. Briley’s column, “Wine-ing,” is published bi-weekly in The Signal and he also produces small lots of pinot noirs under the label Nuggucciet Cellars.

“New and current Signal subscribers will be eligible for periodic discounts  and special offers in the Signal Wine Club,” Briley said.

If members like the wines they receive, they’ll be able to order more of the same varietals. And wine lovers also have the opportunity to buy other high-end wines through the club, Briley said.

If people order before the first shipment goes out on Nov. 19, they become a charter member and save 50-percent off the first shipment, Briley said.

“We’re proud to offer this new service and with Russ driving it, it should be a lot of fun for the local community,” said Publisher Randy Morton.
