By Region

The Society’s aim is to introduce members to the best of the world’s vineyards at a fair price. Our buyers’ job is to find high-quality, interesting and value-for-money wines from around the world at all price levels. Each year thousands of new discoveries are made and the best of these are introduced to members. Claret, Burgundy and the Rhône are, of course, passions, but the current range of around 1,500 wines has room for less well-known wines which members are encouraged to explore.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is the largest vineyard of fine wines in the world. It is a vast region with a great range of wines among the lesser-known appellations as well as among the crus classés. The diversity in character and style is due to the varied soils and climate and to the care and ability of the people...

Burgundy

Burgundy is home to some of the world's finest wines. The reds have a light colour, highish acidity, light tannins and 65-70% of its pleasure comes from its aroma - as such, they are very different to say Bordeaux's darker, richer and more structured wine. White Burgundy is comparatively easy to...

Rhone

Substance, generosity and sun-ripened fruit are the essence of Rhône wine and it is the promise of such abundance of flavour that has propelled the Rhône to dizzy heights within a relatively short time. The Rhône is divided into two unequal parts, north and south, separated by a 20-mile stretch of...

Loire

The Loire is the longest river in France, stretching some 1,000km from its source in the south to the Atlantic coast a little west of Nantes. The geology and climate varies dramatically along the length of the Loire, and, as a result, so too does the choice of grapes planted and the style of wines...

Beaujolais

At its best, there is little that can match the fragrant fruity flavours of Beaujolais. The wines tend to be delicious upon release. These are dream times for Beaujolais, too, with several outstanding recent vintages. For more information, please visit our How To Buy Beaujolais guide....

    Alsace and Lorraine

    Our award-winning Alsace range reflects the long and fruitful history we have enjoyed with this exceptional wine region. Surprisingly, the region's wines are still sadly misunderstood. However, an Alsace label is one of the easiest to read: in contrast to other parts of France where wines take...

      Chile

      Chile is 3,000 miles long, spanning most of the world climates apart from sub tropical, thus allowing most of the world's grape varieties to be grown in an ideal climate. It first became known for cabernet sauvignon and merlot, but now the Rhône varieties garnacha, syrah, mourvèdre and cinsault are...

        Italy

        Italy's wines are wonderfully diverse. The Italians' individuality and long history, and stubborn campanilismo (hometown pride) has developed 330 recognised DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) wine denominations, not to mention 70 DOCGs (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) with...

          Australia

          With a land mass of more than 7.5 million sq km, you could fit England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland into Australia 30 times, and still have a bit left over. It's not surprising therefore that climates and topography are varied. The climate of individual regions has the greatest influence...

          Germany

          Riesling has many aspects. In Germany in 2013 it was aromatic, bright, fresh and bracing. In most regions a small crop of mostly Kabinett quality was made, together with attractive dry wines. Both are gastronomically useful because they go so well with food as well as making fine aperitifs....

            Portugal

            2014 marks 140 years of Wine Society history, which began in 1874 with the sale of a handful of Portuguese wines. Styles may have changed since but the individuality and value offered by Portugal's diverse vineyard landscape remain. There is rarely a consistent vintage story throughout all regions....

              Argentina

              Some of Argentina’s best wines are blends of malbec with other varieties. Weinert’s Carrascal and Cavas are lovely examples in an old-fashioned style. The Zaha and Teho wines take this one step further as they have been made with partial co-fermentation of varieties which produces a lovely...

                South Africa

                South Africa continues to offer excellent value for money. The rand has been helping us, but these days quality is there to offer further support and variety grows unabated. Cooler regions are increasingly prized and produce a wide range of results: contrast the light and charming pinot from Newton...
