Golden Cork Event

It’s time for one of the most exciting events we’ve ever held!

On October 5th, one bottle in our tasting room will have a golden surprise on the cork when you open it. If you are the lucky person to find this cork, you win an amazing prize - a Barrel Club Membership!

For those who don’t know, a Barrel Club Membership usually costs $650 and is valued at over $1,000! The membership is good for 3 years, and includes all of the perks of Case Club, a free case of wine every year, and a private Barrel Club dinner in the fall for you and a guest each year. As a cherry on top, you’ll get your name put on a barrel stave to be hung in our tasting room!

But that’s not all! For every bottle sold this day, River Bend will be donating $1 to the National Kidney Foundation. So come on out for a charitable cause and a chance to win a huge prize!

Rules for Golden Cork event:
- There is no time limit for when the prize can be redeemed, meaning even if you don’t discover that you’ve won until a year later when you open the bottle, you’ll still receive the prize.
- Bottles must be purchased before they can be opened. If a person tampers with the winning bottle before it is purchased, the prize will be null and void.
- If a current Barrel Club member wins the prize, they will have the option of extending their membership or gifting the membership to a friend.
