Our wine club is a great way to try new wines! On the 15th of every month, we release two bottles of wine, specially selected with our members' tastes in mind. We have a variety of tiers to choose from:

 

The Pickpocket Gang
Our most-affordable monthly habit: just $20.99

(One white, one red, each average $10/bottle)
 

The Bandit Gang
Two whites or two reds: only $26.99

(Two reds OR two whites, your choice)

The Thieves Gang
Our more premium selections: only $32.99

(One white, one red, each average $16/bottle)

The Embezzlers Gang
Our super-premium tier (and still a great value!): only $69.99

(Mostly two red wines, but we've been known to sneak in a remarkable white on occasion)

 

 

Other Perks!

 

On top of receiving two bottles of wine each month at the value you are paying for, we also provide these extra perks as well:

 

  • If you live nearby, you can pick up your wines to avoid any shipping costs! Otherwise, we do ship to many states, just ask.

  • We provide information cards that you can print out to learn more about your monthly wine club selection. Check out this month's version here.

  • Did you forget to pick up your wine club? No worries! We hold up to three months-worth of your wine club selections. But if you have been really bad, don't worry, we will provide a comparable alternative for you so you always get your money's worth. And if you don't drink your wine selection right away, you can look up the last 6 months' worth in our Wine Club Archives.

  • Wine club customers are eligible for a discount on our already rock-bottom prices. Any in-store purchase of 6 or more bottles qualifies you for a 10% pre-tax discount (Note: discounts do not apply to special orders of wines we do not usually have in stock).

  • FNT's (Friday Night Tastings) are FREE for members PLUS one guest!

  • NO HIDDEN FEES: we debit your credit card each month for the amount shown above, plus tax and any applicable shipping charge. We ask for a minimum commitment of three months; after which you can cancel at any time.... but why would you want to? Here's a few testimonials from some of our current wine club members:

 

 

"Wine Thieves is a marvelous gem in Lafayette. They have a great collection of regular, well-priced wines and many exciting new finds at low prices. We are long-time Wine Club members and we love receiving new and different bottles of special-value wines every month. We love this wonderful, local shop!

~ Eva & George Duesler

 

"We have been wine club members for several years now and we love it! Friday night tastings are free and it's a great way to start the weekend... We always look forward to picking up our wine selection and tasting good wine." 

~ Michelle Heim

 

"We love Wine Thieves! The staff is knowledgeable and welcoming. We go there every Friday for the tasting and they also serve wines by the glass! We love their selection of wines because they are different.

OUR STORY

After an unexpected turn of events as beverage buyer for a grocery chain, Jim Meyers decided to turn his dream of owning a unique, bargain-oriented wine shop into a reality. In 1999, he opened Wine Thieves in Lafayette with long-time friend and late business partner, Bennett Burke. From 2004 to 2013, Rod Santos was also part of the gang, but has since hung his wine thieves hat and currently resides in the Napa Valley. Today, Jim is the sole owner at his wine shop and although a lot has changed nearly 20 years later, Jim's dream has remained the same. 

"At Wine Thieves, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional customer service and a unique, affordable selection of quality wines from around the world."

While mainly serving as a retail store, Wine Thieves also provides several other services such as:

... And more!

Over the years, Wine Thieves has carved out a quaint, personable niche that customers crave; one that separates them from the detached atmosphere of larger grocery chains. Jim admits, "I love it when I am helping someone out to their car with wine and I see bags full of groceries from Safeway, Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. Yet, they made a conscious decision to come to Wine Thieves for their wine. It tells me we must be doing something right. That's what excites me, I get goose bumps just thinking about it".
In short, what Wine Thieves is about is providing you with, not just great wines at a great price, but an unparalleled experience that isn't often found in retail stores today.

 

"Stop by Wine Thieves today and experience it for yourself!"

Special Events/Holiday Hours

Private Tastings

HOST AN EVENT

NOTE: As of October 2017, our cellar has been renovated and we can no longer hold events inside that space. Our outdoor back patio is still available for private events (weather permitting) and we can accommodate10-30 guests upstairs if you would like to reserve the space inside (please note, our indoor space is unavailable on Fridays).  

Here's what to do:

  • Pick a handful of dates you are interested in for hosting your event: Fridays & Saturdays book up quickly, so call 925-299-9070 at least a month ahead to check availability.

  • You may invite a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum of 30 (see below for minimum cost requirements and details).

  • You may bring your own appetizers if you'd like, but please be advised that hot food needs to be prepared ahead of time, as we do not have a kitchen or food prep area. We also recommend these local caterers: 

~ Classic Catering is great for formal events. They also provide linens and other rental equipment that may be required. 

~ The Hideout is great for finger foods and appetizers. They are also located right across the street from us; it doesn't get more convenient than that!

  • COST: The minimum cost to rent our outdoor or upstairs space is $250 (which is used towards your accommodations and covers approximately 14 people and 10 bottles of $10-$15 wine). Detailed costs are as follows: $15 per person + the cost of wine (variable at your discretion). Facility rental includes two hours' time, glassware for wine tasting, your very own choice of wines from our store (or let us choose for a fun, "around-the-world" experience) and your very own Wine Thieves specialist for the duration of your event!

  • OFFSITE TASTINGS: We also accommodate offsite tastings for $50/hour, plus the cost of wine opened (glassware not provided for offsite tastings. We recommend C&M Party Props for glassware rental).
