THE VENN CLUB AT FLINT VINEYARD
We are so very grateful to all of our members: those who have just joined and those who have supported us from Day 1.
We always intended the Venn Club to be more than a wine club. We wanted to bring you closer to Flint, our crazy project. And we wanted to give you something very special back in return. With this in mind, we hope that 2019 will be the most exciting year yet for Venn Club members.
The central focus remains the same: hand crafted, small volume wines, exclusive only to you. The opportunity to visit and bring friends. And the chance to get involved.
THE STORY SO FAR…
The last three years have been a bit of a blur for us. We’ve had to check ourselves many times, but above all have felt indebted to our incredible members, many of whom have helped at some of the critical times of year. We are lucky to now have over 200 members.
During this time, we have released seven unique wines for Venn members, giving you the chance to taste different styles that perhaps you wouldn’t ordinarily. Stand out examples have been the Bacchus Fumé: free-run pressed Bacchus left to age in barrel for 12 months, the Venn Pinot Blanc: an age-worthy barrel fermented wine and our very first Single Estate Bacchus, made from our own vineyard’s first grapes in 2018.
The plan for future Venn Club wines is just as exciting…
NEW FOR 2019…
Most recently our daughter, Ella, designed the label for one of our Venn Club wines: the Single Estate Bacchus. We loved it so much that we’d like to offer you the chance to design the 2020 label. This could be a unique way of contributing to the creation of a new wine.
We listen to our members’ feedback and as a result have decided to produce a barrel fermented Bacchus every year. The feedback has been so good that this may become part of the Flint range. Another example of members making things happen here.
In addition to giving members complimentary places on our tours, we are planning a series of exclusive events throughout the year, hosted at the vineyard. These will allow you to visit, meet other members and just enjoy some time here, accompanied as always by some food!

The Venn Club wines, depending on when you are joining will include the below:
VINTAGE 2019 RELEASE (renewing members)
Venn Bacchus Blush 2019
An exciting take on an oak aged Bacchus. This Bacchus has been aged our red wine barrels, previously used for Pinot noir. It’s yet to be bottled but so far is tasting excellent!
Venn Chardonnay 2019
A stand out wine from the 2019 vintage, we have chosen to make this a single varietal Chardonnay exclusively for our members. Super ripe, soft and rich, this will be one to savour.
VINTAGE 2018 RELEASE (new members)
Venn Bacchus Fumé 2018
A favourite with Venn members. Free-run Bacchus fermented and aged in French oak barrels. Bacchus in barrel becomes Riesling like: full of frangipane and citrus peel with a soft texture coming from the time in oak.
Single Estate Bacchus 2018
The first wine made exclusively from our own grapes. A delicate and perfumed example of Bacchus in its purest form.
Will I get the same wines every year?
The idea behind the Venn Club is to give members access to ever evolving wines. The wines will never be the same and you will have the chance to see how they develop over time.
When will I receive my wine?
If you are a new member your wines will be ready for delivery or collection immediately upon joining.
If you are a renewing member that is re-subscribing before April 2020 and have already taken the 2018 vintage, the 2019 vintage will be delivered to you as soon as the wines are ready. This is expected to be early Summer 2020.
Am I tied in?
Absolutely not – you simply pay annually. We will send you a reminder when your yearly subscription is coming to and end. You can decide whether to continue your membership at that point.
I'm in - what happens next?
You can buy membership online by clicking on the ‘Subscribe Now’ button. You will then receive your Venn membership pack in the post and your wines will follow shortly afterwards.
How much is delivery?
Delivery within the UK is included in your annual membership. For international delivery please contact us.
