Lone Stars FAQS
How do I join Lone Stars?
What are the costs of membership?
There is no joining fee.
You just need to purchase the Sampling Pack, or your own selection of wines to make up a six-pack to become a member.
(Please note, if you purchase the 2019 Lone Star Creek Sauvignon Blanc, there won’t be a 10% discount as this wine is already reduced.)
Curated Pack prices will start at $130 for the throwback pack and range up to the high $100’s for the top shelf pack – but you’ll always have a choice of which one suits you best, prior to delivery.
What wines are included in the curated packs?
Every six months we will offer up to four choices of six pack ranging from budget to premium.
The budget option will likely include wines from Lone Star Creek recent releases. Other options could include vertical wine selections and wines from our Stable collection.
How do I access member pricing in the online shop?
After you complete your online form and your initial six-pack purchase is processed, we will email you a voucher code which will apply a 10% discount to any purchase in the shop from your email address (except for Lone Star Creek 2019 Sauvignon Blanc).
Is my Credit Card information stored securely?
Yes, you authorise Squareup to store your credit card details on our behalf when you make your first order.
Do I have to pay for shipping?
Free delivery of six-packs, or more, is included to most capital cities (excluding Hobart, Perth & Darwin).
For our Hobart, Perth, Darwin and regional Australia members, you will have the option to pay a flat-rate for each product in your cart. Sometimes the Australia Post option is cheaper, so choose that one when you are checking out!
Can my friends join Lone Stars?
Of course! We love new members. Please direct them to lonestarcreek.com.au/join-lone-stars where they can complete the online form.
We greatly appreciate referred members. Let us know if a friend does join and we’ll send you a two-bottle gift pack of our wines.
How do I opt out?
You can opt out at any time after receiving the first curated pack of your membership, and up to one month prior to any future scheduled release.
If Lone Stars is not quite for you, please send us an email to email@example.com and we will cancel your membership and instruct Squareup to destroy your credit card information.

lone Star lamb
What is the lamb offer?
Our lambs are bred and reared on Lone Star Creek Vineyard. Once a year, the lambs are culled to prevent over grazing and preserve the sustainability of the flock and our land.
Lamb is sold as whole sides which, in addition to the meat, includes offcuts of fat & meat, offal, neck, etc. Most offcuts are great for pets, although there could be a bit of fat waste if you don’t render it down for dripping. Offcuts are usually around 15% of the total weight.
The meat is butchered by a local butcher in the Upper Yarra Valley.
All meat is LPA certified and abattoir stamped.
When is the lamb offer?
Our annual lamb sale generally takes place in the second half of October.
Can any member purchase our lamb?
Yes, on a first come first served basis and provided the meat can be collected safely by the member.
We do not have refrigerated delivery facilities, so all orders are subject to confirmation based on pickup commitments. This may exclude some members.
How will I pay for the lamb?
We will invoice you and charge your credit card prior to collection.
