If you are a licensed winegrower, or you own or lease a bonded winery or a bonded wine cellar in California and are producing or selling wine in the state, you are eligible to become a Wine Institute member.
NOTE: You need to have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 or above to use these forms. Acrobat Reader is free and can be installed by clicking HERE.
In addition to the Membership Application, Members must submit a Dues Computation Form. (Both forms are available for download at the end of this page.) Members who own or lease more than one bonded winery or permit number must pay dues for each entity. Dues may be paid collectively or individually on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.
Wine produced or bottled in California that derives any portion of its volume from grapes grown in California is subject to dues. Additionally, Members are allowed to use either formula for each brand or SKU (stock-keeping unit).
