Membership 2017

Based on their level of giving, guild members will share in the bounty of the harvest, and will enjoy other community benefits including special food, wine, social and educational events, and occasional outings.  Based on their gifts of time and/or talents, all workers who labor on behalf of the RDV ministry become Guild Members, regardless of their financial contributions.

  • If you are a previous Guild member, we hope that you have come to enjoy taking part in Guild activities, and will renew your membership for the 2017 year.
  • If you have not yet joined, Guild membership requests are ongoing.  Your tax-deductible donation from $3,500+ to $100 will secure a RDV Guild Membership for 2017.  Please contact membership@reddoorvineyard.org for a form.
  • Renewal levels may be adjusted slightly in 2018 and beyond.

Members will be acknowledged permanently with a plaque bearing their name and their membership type and level on the Red Door by the entrance to the vineyard.

All financial contributors to the RDV will enjoy the benefits of the Guild based on their gifts of treasure.

* What is a Share?

In 2012 – 2015, one share was equal to three (3) bottles of RDV wine.  In 2016, one share was equal to two (2) bottles of RDV wine.  While we hope to maintain this equivalency in 2017 and beyond, this estimate is subject to change, based on participation and annual wine production. Similarly, the renewal levels for those joining this year and in future years may need to be adjusted slightly.  A minimum of 10% of the wine produced each year will be tithed for use by the church.
