FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We know it’s been awhile since you’ve logged into your account. Here are answers to frequently asked questions to help you get your shipment customized and account updated in no time.

 

WHAT’S IN MY SHIPMENT?

Our Winemaker pre-selects 6 (Somm) or 12 (Proprietor) bottles on your behalf every April and September as we prepare to send you wine our diverse collection of Aurora Cellars of the Leelanau Peninsula in Northern Michigan.  These selections typically include exclusive, pre-released wines, just for our club members. See the Fall Winemaker’s Selections.

 

We recognize everyone has their favorite wines, so you can customize your shipment by logging into your account. It’s also a great time to update your credit card information or shipping address. For members who do not make changes to their shipment by the deadline, the Winemaker’s selections will be charged to the credit card on file and shipped to the address in our records.
