The Equus Club & Winery will hire the following firms to assist in establishing the club:

BB&T – Banking
Smith Moore Leatherwood – Legal
Scheetz, Hogan, Freeman & Phillips – Insurance

The Equus Club & Winery will be funded by the first 500 equity members paying an initiation fee of $28,500 raising $14,250,000 which will allow our club to be fully funded with no debt. Our club’s management has set a goal to have all construction of the winery, tasting rooms, Culinary Center, stable, covered riding arena, Wellness Center, art gallery, and member clubhouse completed within one year of final funding.
An additional 150 memberships will then be established and sold to raise additional capital to allow our Club the ability to purchase additional vineyards or amenities at the direction of the Board of Directors.
The Equus Club & Winery will be open 50 weekends a year for the members’ private use. Monthly membership dues will be established at an “all-inclusive” rate of $495 per month (membership includes two individuals who are married or a single individual and a guest). Monthly dues will commence when the Equus Club has finished construction and is open for members’ use.
