Membership

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 Chicken” over his party line phone. 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! Because of our devoted members, the winery can continue our mission of preserving these historic Zinfandel vines and carrying on with the family legacy.

ALDO'S GEMS

Aldo’s GEMS are Biale customers who exceed $1,250 in yearly wine purchases. The program is designed to provide you with more frequent Biale information and assure you the opportunity to secure your favorite Biale wines – most of which sell out quickly and are sold exclusively at our winery. An additional benefit of reaching Aldo’s GEMs status is that you are also automatically enrolled in the 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 at (707) 257-7555  or emailing wineclub@biale.com.
