Yes, that's right. We are now accepting new members for the 2013 vintage. A big word of T-H-A-N-K-S to all of you who joined during our Friends and Family Pre-Registration period and have purchased your shares. If you preregistered and haven't yet purchased your shares or if you were waiting until we officially opened, you can now purchase your shares here.

June Roadshow

Next month, I will be taking the Glasshaus show on the road to Los Angeles, San Diego and Boston. With wine in tow (2011 Glasshaus Dry Creek Zinfandel and other Sonoma treats), I am organizing Talks & Tastings to share our vision and mission. I will be firming up dates over the next week. Please email me directly if you would like to join in to taste some great wine and meet new friends. You can reach me at rodney@glasshauswines.com.
