In 1991 Dick Scheer formed the Ann Arbor Wine Club to continue the wine-tasting and wine-buying activities undertaken from 1973-1991 under the aegis of the Wine and Food Society of Ann Arbor. The main program consists of a series of 6 annual offerings (January, March, May, July, August, November) of approximately 8 dozen wines each (plus a sprinkling of other foods and beverages, and wine accessories) accompanied by a tasting of most of the items on offer. Village Corner, the purveyor, offers exceptional discounts on these products in consideration of the cost efficiency of the program and buying clout of the group.

Locally, Village Corner offers the area’s most ambitious tasting schedule, through its Ann Arbor Wine Club and the local Tasters Guild Chapter. The AAWC six-times-per-year walkarounds provide the city’s best bang for the buck, with dozens of wines available to taste; non-members can attend for a small surcharge, although only members can order.
