Summit Cru Member Profile
I’m sure you have heard us talking about or referring too our amazing Summit Cru Wine Club members in the past, you might be one of them! Over the 15 plus years we’ve had our wine club we’ve had the most amazing time with members and we can’t wait to have more! Our Summit Cru members are integral to our business and are firmly apart of the Feathertop family! As such we always strive to add more and more value to membership. One such Feathertop family member is Chris! Below we’ve asked Chris a list of questions about his experience with Feathertop. Thank you Chris!
Meet Chris from Melbourne, Victoria
Summit Cru Member since 2008
What do you most like about being a member?
“I like the variety of great value wines that are produced. I’m very much looking forward to the Montepulciano when it’s ready!”
What are your favourite benefits?
“Well, I’m not sure if this a benefit, or simply a side effect of being a borderline alcoholic, but being greeted by name when I visit the winery is very nice. I do also very much enjoy the events held every now and then and join in on most of them. It’s nice to catch up with the team to see what’s happening up there. Not only the winery but the area in general.”
What’s your favourite Feathertop event you’ve attended?
“I used to travel a lot for work, so it was always very hard to get to events. My favourite event was probably the first event I was able to attend, which was the 5+ year lunch a few years ago at the winery.” [Feathertop: This was one of the events we hold to celebrate membership milestones – we will get working on more of these for the future].
“I had just spent 3 months in Saudi in 50+ degree heat, so to land back in Australia and drive up to the winery in Winter after 3 months of sobriety was quite an enjoyable shock! It was also the first time we stayed at the winery, so waking up, walking around the winery in around 0 degrees, having a coffee etc was really nice… and of course the lunch itself was great too.”
“I also remember one of the lunch events in Melbourne at the Boat Builders yard. That was a very relaxing, enjoyable day spent with some friends who came as guests. From memory some of our guests joined that day too!”
Would you recommend Summit Cru membership to others? Why?
“I already have! 3 good friends have also joined, for the same reasons as I did; lots of different varieties of wines at very good value prices.”
