About ten years ago increased visitation to Linden pushed us beyond our ability to maintain the intimacy, atmosphere and genius loci that we strive to protect. Many of our good, loyal customers told me that they stopped visiting frequently because of the crowds on the weekends. I was put in a situation to either significantly expand Linden’s facilities and scope of business or to put restrictions on what we do. I chose the latter. Hence was born Case Club. On Saturdays and Sundays Case Club members and guests (up to four people total) have the opportunity to stay after tasting to enjoy our wines and sample our small food pairings on Linden’s deck or grounds.
Case Club membership is automatic to anyone who purchases a 12-bottle case at Linden. You will receive a membership card, but your name will be entered in our computer should you forget to bring your card on a subsequent visit. Our regular tasting fee is waived for case club members and their guests (A charge for the cellar tasting still applies).
After tasting, Case Club members and their guests (no parties larger than four) may want to take the opportunity to relax and enjoy their favorite wine on our deck overlooking the vines and the valley. During the winter months the enclosed part of the deck is heated with a wood stove. We especially enjoy pairing our wines with food, and are big supporters of small, sustainable, regional farming. As a result, we offer a small selection of local artisan cheeses and/or or a local summer sausage that pairs wonderfully with our wines.Since we are not a restaurant, we would be happy to recommend some great lunch and dinner spots in the area.
Case Club members receive advance notice of vintner dinners, seminars vineyard updates, and new releases via e-mail.
