The Biale family has been growing Zinfandel in Napa since the 1930s and as the story goes, Aldo Biale sold bottles of homemade Zinfandel known as “Black Chickens” over his party line phone. It is because of our devoted members, that the winery is able to continue our mission of preserving these historic Zinfandel vines and carrying on with the family legacy. Over the years, we have created a loyal following of Black Chicken Society Members who receive a bottle of Black Chicken Zinfandel in every shipment as well as a selection of our Single-Vineyard Zinfandels, Petite Sirahs, and Proprietary Red Wines. We look forward to having you join the flock!
Members receive 4 bottles per shipment, four times a year. (About $200 per shipment, based on wines included)
Members receive 8 bottles per shipment, four times a year. (2 bottles of each wine, which is about $400 per shipment)
Members receive 12 bottles per shipment, four times a year. (3 bottles of each wine, which is about $600 per shipment)
*Shipments are delivered 4 times per year: February, April, September & November–just in time for the holidays!
New members of the Black Chicken Society Level 1, 2, 3, or Custom Club must take the most recent shipment or a 4+ bottle customized order to “activate” the membership and begin receiving benefits.
Members receive (2) 12-bottle cases per year. Members have 3 weeks to select the wines they wish to receive either through their Biale website account or with the Biale team. If members do not select their wines by the stated deadline in their allocation email (sent in Spring & Fall), Robert Biale Vineyards will automatically send a pre-selected mixed case.
*Shipments are delivered 2 times per year: One in March and one in September.
Aldo’s GEMS are Biale customers who exceed $1000 in yearly wine purchases. Aldos GEMS is a service designed to provide you with more frequent Biale information, and assure you the opportunity to secure quantities of your favorite Biale wines–most of which, as you know, sell out quickly and in most cases are impossible to find in stores. An additional benefit of reaching Aldo’s GEMs status is that you are also automatically enrolled in the GEMS program–a multi-winery referral network.
*The Black Chicken Society is an automatic renewal membership that will continue until the member cancels. A member may cancel by contacting Robert Biale Vineyards directly by calling (707) 257-7555 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
