If this sounds like your kind of place, you might consider joining their Vinofile club. Members receive advance notice of shows and the opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public plus other benefits. Membership costs $75 per year, which includes a $25 certificate to use at City Winery's online wine store. Here's a listing of all the perks of Vinofile membership:
— No Service Fees on all ticket purchases.
— 48-Hour advance notice to purchase tickets before the public.
— Free glass of Tap Wine for every 10 glasses of Tap Wine purchased.
— Free pair of Reserved Tickets for every $500 spent at the restaurant.
— Special invites to members-only events throughout the year.
— Online website view of your wine consumption with expert Virtual Wine Sommelier™ recommendations tailored to your preferences.
— The membership program works all locations — New York, Chicago, Napa and Nashville
Other membership opportunities at the original City Winery locations don't appear on the Nashville website for purchase yet, but they include a wine club where members receive delivery of wine to their home or office twice a year and a Barrel Club membership where you can actually blend your own wine for delivery in cases of bottles with customized labels. Maybe we can look forward to these sorts of opportunities in the future, but in the meantime, head to the local website if you want to sign up for Vinofile status.
