Winery Membership

Our membership programs and services are dedicated to telling the amazing story of New York’s wineries and growers, and to improving our ability to succeed in a new business reality. NYWGF Membership will now provide two categories of benefits 1) basic business support services and 2) capacity building and educational services.

While Tier 1 membership benefits will be similar to last year, dues will be $300 regardless of the production size of your winery. Later this year, we will also be providing Tier 1 members with electronic marketing tool kits, downloadable point-of-sale collateral, and access to a series of educational webinars.

For those looking to expand or diversify your business model and build the capacity of your business, Tier 2 membership benefits will include access to enhanced webinars on topics like DTC strategies website development, digital metrics, and website building. We will also provide printed point-of-sale collateral, and access to one on one coaching with experts in areas like marketing and sales. Dues will be $600 regardless of the production size of your winery.
