If wine consumers are going to make their voices heard they must band together or the well-funded, lobbying interests of Big Alcohol will take priority every time—and that’s almost always bad for the consumers.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 03, 2014
The American Wine Consumer Coalition announced today the beginning of its 2014 membership drive, inviting wine consumers across the country to join the only national wine consumer advocacy organization for only $20.14 per year. The annual two-month membership program gives new members access to all the AWCC benefits and puts their weight behind its ongoing effort to overcome restrictive, anti-consumer laws governing wine across the country.
Wine consumers can take advantage of the $20.14 (33% off normal) annual membership price during June and July by joining at the AWCC website: http://www.wineconsumers.org.
“Consumer groups are only as strong as the size and passion of their members,” said David White, president of the AWCC. If wine consumers are going to make their voices heard they must band together or the well-funded, lobbying interests of Big Alcohol will take priority every time—and that’s almost always bad for the consumers.”
Founded in June 2013, AWCC not only advocates for wine consumers rights, but provides its members with a host of benefits including significant discounts on wine education, wine books, wine clubs, travel and much more. New membership also come with a year-long subscription to the Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine, one of the longest running and most influential sources of wine reviews and ratings in the country.
“Our goal for the 2014 membership drive is to attract an additional 1,000 members to AWCC,” said White. “While the benefits and perks more than pay for the promotional membership price, new members also keep informed on political efforts across the country to expand wine consumers rights on issues like winery and retailer-to-consumer shipments of wine, moving wine into grocery stores, privatization movements and battling other efforts to restrict how consumers access the wine they want.”
