- In order to receive shipments and qualify for club benefits, members must have a Texas shipping address. Shipments will be delivered via FedEx.
- Shipments will be charged to the credit card account on file. No charges will be made without notification.
- Cancellation requests must be received 30 days prior to ship date. This will remove you from the wine club ending your wine club benefits.
- New members may only cancel Wine Club membership after accepting two shipments.

- Members may choose to have the wine selections shipped to them (for a fee) or held for pick-up. The winery will hold selections for one month after the shipment has been released. If members are unable to pick-up the shipments within the 30 day time-frame, a separate shipping charge will apply and the selection will be shipped to the address on file.

About San Pasqual Baylon
From his position in our cellar and on the pavilion, the winery's patron Saint, San Pasqual Baylon, guards our wine.
San Pasqual, meaning Holy Ghost, was born to poor peasants on May 24, 1540, in the Kingdom of Aragon. Beginning his life as a shepherd, he taught himself to read by taking books with him as he tended the flock and begging passersby to teach him the alphabet.
In 1564, he was accepted as a Franciscan lay brother and chose to live in the poorer monasteries. He continued to shepherd and was also the keeper of the monastery’s pantry and wine cellar. Perhaps it was this role that led San Pasqual to create the popular Italian dish zabaione, a rich and frothy mixture made of eggs, sugar and wine, which he hoped would help provide nutrition and energy for his small parish.
He is quoted as stating, “I was born poor and am resolved to dying poor,” and would share his meals with those in need as he was out in the fields with his flock. He walked without sandals and was always content, cheerful and full of respect for all.
San Pasqual was canonized in 1690 by Pope Alexander VIII for his devotion to the Holy Eucharist. His patronage includes chefs, cooks, the Eucharist, Mexico and Puerto Rico. The feast day of Saint San Pasqual Baylon is celebrated on May 17th.
