The Venn Club at Flint Vineyard
The Venn Club is a special project that was launched by Ben and Hannah in 2016 to bring people closer to Flint Vineyard. The name Venn is related to our logo, a Venn diagram which represents the coming together of wine science and tradition.
The central focus of the club is to release small volumes of hand crafted wines exclusively to members. These are wines that Ben produces using the very best lots of fruit and that reflect the nuances of the particular vintage, using ultra premium techniques.
Members also have the opportunity to be involved, with an allocation of tour places, discounts on further wine purchases and invitations to participate in key wine making events such as the harvest and bottling. Many of our members join us regularly throughout the year, forming a small community of interested, passionate and loyal wine lovers!
The story so far
The last five 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…
2 x 6 bottle cases
Cases include a selection of wines made exclusively for VENN members, including an unfiltered and barrel-aged Chardonnay and a skin fermented and barrel-aged Pinot Gris. (Wines will be available for shipping as soon as they are ready)
Priority access to limited release wines, such as our Bacchus Fumé and Pinot Noir Tardif
Exclusive access to our back catalogue, via our online members’ area.
10% discount on future wine purchases
2 x Discovery Tour gift vouchers
Free tastings in our shop and tasting room
Opportunity to be involved at harvest
Members’ only events
What will my allocation include?
Your 2 x 6 bottle cases will include a selection of wines made exclusively for Venn members, limited-release wines, and our standard range of Bacchus, Charmat Rosé, Silex and Pinot Noir Précoce from our current vintage.
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?
The first case of 6 wines will be available for collection or shipment in the 1st week of May. The second case includes some wines that are being aged for longer in barrel and so will not be ready until the autumn. When signing up, you will be asked if you would like to receive your first case as soon as possible (May), or if you’d like to receive all your wines at the same time in the autumn.
You will also be asked to state your delivery preference: either ‘collect from winery’ or ‘delivery by courier’.
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?
Click the Sign Up button and you can add one membership to your cart. We will then be in touch to tell you how you can access your vouchers and discounted rate.
THE VENN CLUB WILL REOPEN IN APRIL. PLEASE EMAIL US TO GO ON THE WAITING LIST.
