Joining SARWG is easy, and anyone of legal drinking age is welcome. There are two ways to join: send a check to our treasurer (details below), or bring a check or cash to a meeting.
The current annual dues of the San Antonio Regional Wine Guild are only $30.00 per person per year or $50.00 per couple. To join SARWG, all you have to do is pay your dues. You will automatically begin receiving our newsletter, which will announce the date, location, and directions to our next meeting or activity. To join, do the following:
Send us a letter:
Include your name, address, home and work phone numbers, email address (if any), and intent to join SARWG.
Include a check:
To “San Antonio Regional Wine Guild” for the amount of $30.00 per individual or $50.00 per couple
Mail letter and check:
Mark Nichols (Treasurer)
12638 N. State HWY 16

Or, just show up at a meeting and hand your dues to the treasurer or the president. Contact any of the guild officers for info on the next meeting.
What to expect as a SARWG member
You’ll receive a monthly email newsletter containing club activities and news, correspondence, a recap of the last meeting, harvest and grape availability information, location and directions to the next meeting, competition news, and a wealth of other info you’ll probably find useful. We have nine annual meetings and at least one competition annually, and a holiday party in December. At each gathering, members wishing to do so bring samples of their wines (or a commercial wine), a food dish, and their tasting glass. We sample wines and exchange recipes and other tidbits for an hour or so, then eat (pot luck style), and then have our meeting or competition or whatever. You’re on your own not to drink so much that you can’t drive home safely.
You can volunteer to help with any function or activity SARWG is involved in. These include setting up and manning information booths and judging wine competitions at a number of regional fairs, shows, and other gatherings (as well as our own), assisting in program development, developing promotional material, or helping in other ways. However, you will be under no obligation to do so and will not be hounded to volunteer. We are a member-friendly organization.
Should you desire additional information or simply want to talk to someone about SARWG, feel free to contact one of our officers.
