Johnson Wine Club

All grapes welcome


About Us

The Johnson Wine Club was founded upon the premise that good wine is a treat to be shared and enjoyed by all. JWC provides fun and educational opportunities for students to enjoy and learn about wine.

Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to taking an educational approach to support BIPOC businesses in the wine industry that has a broader impact on the university. We are focused on giving inclusive voices a platform, so expect to have the opportunity to meet great up-and-coming producers, try their wines, and learn more about the nuances of the wine industry.

Members Benefits

Fall 2020 Membership

Membership this semester, similar to the 2nd half of last semester, will include various wines curated by our board and purchased on your behalf. This will again be available for pick-up at Cellar D’or in Ithaca Commons at your convenience. This is in lieu of the wine club meetings we would typically have.

New Virtual Membership

For students that will be remote the entire semester and unable to pickup wine at any time, we have a discounted membership option that will include information from our board and recommendations of wine to purchase yourself. Please note: this option will not include any wine.

Blind tasting ed & competitions

As a member of the Johnson Wine Club you will have access to multiple virtual classes in tasting from sight, nose, palate, to conclusion. For those interested, towards the end of the semester we will be hosting fun team competitions all virtually enabled for equitable participation.

How does it work?

In lieu of your regularly scheduled tastings in the basement of Sage, JWC has partnered with the Cellar d’Or to bring you wine this semester via small group virtual tastings! After signing up for Johnson Wine Club, you’ll receive instructions for picking up a kit of pre-selected wines from Cellar d’Or that we’ll open together in small groups over the course of the semester. This will give everyone a chance to learn more about wine, meet new Johnson classmates and spill wine on your own furniture for a change!

Please join wine club by September 14th to ensure wine availability. Members joining after September 14th may not receive the same wines.
