STV-PHENOLOGY-logoPhenology: the Wine Club at Silver Thread



Club membership is the best way for fans of the winery to keep their cellars stocked, and ensure access to limited production wines.

Phenology is a branch of science dealing with the relations between climate and periodic biological phenomena.  Our club members, “phenologists,” are keenly interested in learning about our wines and how the climate and weather conditions of each season make them taste differently.  The club name is also a nod to owner-winemakers Paul and Shannon Brock’s involvement in wine education—Paul as a professor  of viticulture and wine technology at Finger Lakes Community College and Shannon as a Wine & Spirit Education Trust certified educator.

What to expect from your membership…

  • 20% discount on Club Selection wines.
  • Winemaker notes, recipes and food pairing suggestions.
  • A special holiday gift for members receiving a December shipment.
  • 15% discount on all wine purchases made in the tasting room or on-line.
  • Complimentary tastings for yourself and up to 3 guests each time you visit.
  • Invitation to member-only events, including Winter Winemaker Seminar (February) and Summer Solstice Celebration (June).
