Share the pleasures of our table with fellow wine club members

Pickup Parties

We make wine, we create recipes to pair with our wines and we pair cheeses from villages around the world with our wines.

Each new release of a wine, paired with new cheese and a new recipe, comprise the quarterly shipments to our wine club members.

Every quarter we host a series of parties, complimentary for our Wine Club Members, incorporating several of the new wines and recipes in a seated, lunch party setting.

The parties are complimentary to all members but mostly locals come to pickup their wine shipment, hence "Pickup Parties".

Come to a Party

Choose either a morning or afternoon session held on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in February, May, October & December at Bill's Cellar, 18 Matheson Street, Healdsburg. The courtesy of an RSVP is requested.

Naughty Members - Didn't Show?

Occasionally Wine Club Members will RSVP and then not turn up, without good reason. We held their table, prepared food and denied other members from booking that table so they may be billed a naughty no-show fee of $35 each.

Frequently Asked Questions - Pickup Parties

Pickup Parties are complimentary for Wine Club Members (plus one) on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the months of February, May, October and December.

You may also invite guests to join you at the Pickup Party at $35 per person with a maximum of four guests per party.

You must be a Wine Club Member in current standing. Due to space limitations and popularity of the parties we can only accommodate members with prior (RSVP) appointments so please confirm as a reservation is required for entry.
The pickup parties are provided complimentary as a courtesy to wine club members by the Williamson family. The parties allow family members to spend time with their wine club members in a social environment. As such, they are not a fundamental component of wine club membership and attendance is not transferable.
Yes, simply contact our concierge 707-433-1500 and let them know when you would like to attend. They will confirm the details and have you on the RSVP list for that party.
If you can't make it to one of our parties you can pick up your wine any day at either of our Matheson Street tasting rooms or simply call or email us so we can arrange a visit for you to pickup your wines or alternatively, we can ship your wines.

If we don't hear from you we will make multiple attempts to contact you via email and phone.

If we cannot contact you after 30 days your wine is packed and stored, waiting for your next visit.

Per our membership agreement your wine allocation has already been billed to your credit card on file.

If you come into any of our facilities to pickup your wines within sixty (60) days of the billing date you can substitute for other wines of equal of greater value.

Wines that have been billed for more than sixty days cannot be returned to our inventory and so cannot be substituted.

If you can't make it to one of our parties you can pick up your cheese any day at either of our Matheson Street tasting rooms or simply call or email us so we can arrange to ship your cheese.

If we don't hear from you we will make multiple attempts to contact you via email and phone, however the cheese was purchased especially for your cheese club order and it has a limited shelf life.

If we cannot contact each other within 30 days we will have to consider your cheese abandoned and dispose of it. In this case no credit is available.

Attending a Pickup Party is special event offer we make for members only, plus their accompanied guests, while picking up their wines.

At a Pickup Party every table is occupied by members who are happy to be in the company of fellow members who enjoy the same wine and food benefits of their membership.

If we made this same offer to non-members then it is no longer a special membership privilege so imagine how all the other members at the party might feel.

For this reason you cannot gift a Pickup Party, however we do offer a similar event every day as Lunch at Epicurean Kitchen that a member can gift to their friends and still receive their member discount.

For members who ship their wines as opposed to picking up their wines, we provide a flat shipping rate of $35 per case of wine shipped anywhere in the contiguous United States, in lieu of a PUP.
