Plan B Frankland River Shiraz-Tempranillo 2010

…real character… almost rioja-like… just add a bowl of spicy sausage and beans. - Fiona Beckett

( The Guardian 4th Oct 2015 )

Percheron Old Vine Cinsault, Western Cape 2013

For a light red, The Wine Society deserve a collective knighthood for offering [this] for £5.95. Light and tangy, it’s a cracking party wine. - Olly Smith

Percheron Old Vine Cinsault, Western Cape 2013

A total steal for a light-bodied sleek red to send your palate soaring. - Olly Smith

Muga Rosado, Rioja 2013

This is a classy wine – dry and elegant, but with cherry and strawberry notes and a sprinkle of white pepper. Lovely with stir-fried squid  - Susy Atkins

La Rioja Alta Viña Ardanza Reserva, Rioja 2004

A 'Spanish favourite' - Jancis Robinson

The Society's Cava Reserva Brut

Good, ordinary, fizz for under a tenner is almost extinct, so grab this lengthily aged, yet refreshing, bold, appley, tutti-frutti sparkler from Sumarroca, a small, family-run estate. - Jane MacQuitty

Côtes de St Mont, Les Vignes Retrouvées 2012

Trust The Wine Society to have managed to snap up one of the very best of the Plaimont Producteurs wines (in contrast to Waitrose whose version is dilute, disappointing AND more expensive!). A glorious, interesting white, unoaked, made from gros manseng, courbu and arrufiac. Shards of preserved grapefruit, and dry with just a suggestion of wild honey. - Victoria Moore

Dry Riesling, von Kesselstatt 2013

Hints of white flower and freshly squeezed limes. The zingy lime flavours really started to sing when I tried it with a Thai fish curry. Oh, and it's bone dry! - Carole Brown

Chianti Classico, Fontodi 2011

Delicious... a big, bold, perfumed, sandalwood and black fruit-stashed charmer. - Jane MacQuitty

( The Times 11th Oct 2014 )

Malabarista Tempranillo-Garnacha, Navarra 2012

The Society’s sub £7 bottles are among the best on the block and this soft, easy-swigging, grated orange peel-scented red, with a squirt of spicy oak on the finish, gets my autumn vote. - Jane MacQuitty
