Wine Credits 

You earn credits by ordering wine. There is sometimes a positive cash balance after a wine has arrived and all expenses are paid. If so, a credit is assigned pro rata to all subscribers on that specific offering, and is reflected in your statement. News of credits issued is always in Opimian News (inserted into every issue of Quench). Credits can range between 2 and 6 per cent of order price. You can use your credits towards wine orders, events, Opimian gourmet products or to renew your membership.
