The Hye Society

Our Hye Society wine club members enjoy a whole host of perks and privileges, and we’re constantly looking for ways to take extra special care of this amazing group, from private elevated experiences to concierge-level account and reservation support.
As a Hye Society wine club member, you will receive six special releases per year and will also have the first option to purchase any new wines as soon as they're bottled. Our Hye Society Release Parties traditionally occur in February, April, June, September, and November. See our Events page for upcoming release party dates.

Join Hye Society and experience what it's like to live the "Hye Life"!
Note: This club features wines from and benefits at William Chris Vineyards. If you are a member of another William Chris Wine Co. club, your member benefits are not transferrable.

Additional member benefits include:

  • Invitation to members-only release parties for up to four

  • First access to paired wine dinners, barrel tastings, and library tastings

  • Option to purchase limited production, members-only wines

  • Access to our Hye Society Lounge with a complimentary glass or tasting per visit (reservation required)

Plan Your Perfect Hill Country Trip

  • How long does it take to get into Hye Society?

    Since William Chris is a small production winery, we keep a careful eye on the number of wine club members we have so that we are sure to have plenty of wine to meet our member's needs. It typically takes 2-6 weeks to process your request and get you set up in our wine club.
    NOTE: Total spaces in Hye Society are limited.

  • Logistics and Payments

    If you choose to have your wine shipped, an adult signature is required and a business address is recommended. If you prefer to pick up your wine, you may do so however any wine that has not been claimed for 45 days after the date that the credit card on file has been charged will be shipped to the address on file. Cancellations and order preferences must be received 30 days before releases are processed - two e-mail reminders will be sent to you. Credit cards will be securely stored in your member profile and charged on the processing date of each shipment - this charge which will happen after you have received the two e-mail reminders is non-refundable.

  • Can I skip a Club Release?

    We allow our members to skip up to 2 shipments in a 12-month period. If you would like to skip your release, please contact our membership department for assistance. 

  • Returns and Cancellations

    We will replace or refund you for any bottle of wine that is damaged, flawed or that the customer finds unsatisfactory. We ask the customer to return the unfinished portion of the original bottle for replacement. By law, we cannot accept returns of alcoholic beverages unless the product is corked, or flawed.

    We are also unable to accept return of wine that was damaged due to adverse weather conditions during shipment, or wine that is ordered in error. A 15% restocking fee will be applied to all canceled orders.

  • Wine Club Cancellations

    All wine club cancellations MUST be made 30 days prior to a wine club release. You will receive an e-mail reminder the month prior to your shipment prompting you to update your wine club information.

    Given the limited quantities of wine set aside especially for our Hye Society members, we are unable to give refunds after wine club orders are processed.

    Please e-mail to confirm your cancellation.
