Why Become a Member
Family Winemakers wants to help you grow your DtC with our new partnership
Accepting memberships for 2024!
Family Winemakers of California (FWC) is now accepting Associate Member Renewals and New Applications for 2024.
Family Winemakers of California is dedicated to championing the rights of its members to produce, market, and sell wine. During each legislative session, FWC actively scrutinizes more than 100 proposed bills that could affect the Wine Industry. On behalf of its small family winery members, FWC then takes action before the California Legislature and relevant state regulatory agencies as an unwavering advocate for positive change.
An Associate Membership with FWC is strongly encouraged since you are an allied professional or business who serves the Wine Industry and supports the growth and success of Family Wineries. Dues are a mere $600 per fiscal year. A membership with FWC gives your organization direct access to Sacramento legislators through FWC’s lobbyists at Political Solutions. To further extend our educational outreach and support candidates who align with our views, we have established the FWCPAC. Funds are raised independently for this purpose through donations made by our member wineries per Fair Political Practice Commission guidelines.
We strongly encourage Associate members to become key sponsors for our 2024 Tasting Event season. We have restructured our sponsorship opportunities for 2024 and funding levels begin at $500 for representation across all events. Please contact Jessica Venezia by email, email@example.com, to receive a full list of sponsor related products and event details and dates to determine which product and placement is the best fit for your organization.
As we embark on the journey in 2024, we invite you to renew your membership with FWC and actively participate in shaping the future of the California wine industry. Your support is invaluable, and together, we can ensure a thriving environment.
