Welcome – benvenuto – to the launch of the Poderi Crisci Membership Club ‘En Primeur’.
Antonio Crisci and the team have designed the perfect way for you to become part of the Poderi Crisci family. As the famous credit card tagline said, membership has its privileges.
La Locanda has been specifically created and designed as a venue for exclusive events such as hosting new vintage tastings and private aperitivo evenings all focused on ‘En Primeur’ members.
En Primeur privileges
– ‘En Primeur Collezione’ of 24 bottles of pre-release wines
– An invitation to our harvest, dining privileges and exclusive members aperitivo evenings
– Members first event invitations to all Poderi events including Masterclass cooking classes.
En Primeur membership would be a fantastic gift – anytime – for your partner (or friends) as a gift you could all enjoy together.
For only $1000 per annum, En Primeur is an exclusive membership, therefore numbers are limited. We have limited spaces still available and would love you to be able to take advantage of this and become part of a very exclusive club.
From our cellar to yours
Due to the genuine boutique nature of the vineyard, a select amount of wine is bottled prior to public release. This is a great opportunity to build your cellar and create a collection that allows you to savour our skillful winemakers craft and the subtle uniquenesses from vintage to vintage.
This unique ‘En Primeur Collezione’ of 24 bottles is delivered in carefully packed wooden boxes, with a detailed description of the harvest, wine making techniques and winemakers notes for each wine.
You will be invited to join us for the harvest – including grape stomping if you wish – to have a full understanding the craft that goes into Poderi Crisci wines.
As a member you will also have the opportunity to create your own personalized label* as if owning a small part of the Poderi Crisci family.
*A fee will apply
