Join Us

One of the greatest values our club brings to members is the opportunity to be a small batch wine maker. Truly, anyone who has an interest in making wine, CAN! Even if it means just doing a 3- or 5-gallon carboy (small glass vessel) in your garage! 

Whether you want to make a small batch of homemade wine on your own, prefer to just learn about evaluating wine or mentor others and enjoy wines made by fellow members, the CCHVA welcomes you as a wine aficionado. 

Our vision is to grow the CCHVA membership by encouraging existing members to share their experiences with friends and colleagues and invite them to join us! This club can be whatever we aspire it to be. I look forward to leading you as your president and welcome everyone’s inputs to take our club to the next level. 

Discover how we volunteered to run the home wine judging competition for the Santa Barbara County Fair and how well our members have done in this competition. 

Learn about the grape buying co-op and how you can source grapes with fellow club members to make you own wine. 

Grape Buying Co-op, this is an excellent opportunity to source high quality grapes from local vineyards. In previous years, our members bought over 16,000 pounds of grapes from 36 different varieties. That makes over 4000 bottles of wine! 

  • Lots of activities, you can visit the Events section of this website and see all the activities we have to offer
  • throughout the year. We conduct wine evaluation seminars and “tips from the pro’s” sessions at local wineries. There are opportunities to be part of wine judging events, new winemaker’s seminars, and vineyard and harvest activities. Winter is capped with our annual membership meeting at the Avila Yacht Club. Just about every event involves the enjoyment of great wines, sharing of ideas, and an appreciation of all the hobby has to offer. 
  • If you still have questions, you can go to the Contact Us section and our membership chairman or I will be happy to answer them.
