As the world’s largest member-owned society of wine lovers, we believe in doing business differently, offering great value every day.

The Wine Society is unique in the world of wine because we have no external shareholders to please, so t
he money we make gets reinvested, keeping quality high and prices low. Not only that, but our award-winning buying team has the freedom to choose wine based on quality and value alone, seeking out new discoveries for our members. 

Our long-standing relationship with suppliers – some stretching back more than 100 years – means we’re able to secure exclusive wines you won’t find anywhere else.

‘The Wine Society is almost certainly the best UK retailer for value – not cheapness, but real quality per penny.’

Our strongly held principles

Whenever big (or even small) decisions are taken at The Society, we always refer to our core principles. These are a list of non-negotiable rules that make The Society special. They exist to keep us distinctive and true to ourselves, and are at the heart of the way we're run. They include:

  • We don't maximise profits: we don't have to please external shareholders and can put profits back into fairer prices and better service for you.
  • We sell only to members: we don't make profits or compromise our principles by selling to restaurants, wine bars or other on-trade outlets.
  • A member can own a maximum of one share: this means every member is equal, and no member has an unfair advantage when it comes to buying wine or the service they receive.
  • Our buyers choose wine based on quality and value alone: our buying team are truly independent, only interested in buying bottles they think you'll enjoy.
  • We don't share our members' data to third parties for marketing purposes, so you'll never receive dodgy-looking emails from unknown providers!
