Delivery and collection options

Free delivery

Delivery to any one address in the UK is free for:

  • one or more of The Society's pre-selected mixed cases;
  • at least 12 bottles or half-bottles (or six magnums or litres), which can be selected by the member to make up a mixed case;
  • goods worth £75 or more.

There's no minimum order, but there is a minimum delivery charge of £5 for smaller orders.

Next day delivery

Need your wine in a hurry? We have a next day delivery service to most parts of the UK.

Place your order by midday Monday to Friday for delivery on the next working day.

Free UK Name-the-Day delivery

We can offer free name-the-day deliveries to most areas of the UK.

This carrier service allows you to nominate the weekday you would like to receive your order. Most orders are delivered within 48 hours (two working days) depending on the time of day the order is placed. More information.

Our own fleet of Wine Society vans delivers to most parts of the UK. If your delivery is to a Wine Society van area, you can have your wine delivered on the day that the van is next in the area or take delivery by carrier.

Our carriers cover areas we can't get to and are also used for next day, name-the-day and evening deliveries for which there is a small extra charge.

Please note the following exclusions: unfortunately our next day and name-the-day services are not available for deliveries to The Isle of Man, The Isles of Scilly and some areas of Scotland.

When you checkout online you will be offered the full range of delivery options available or our friendly Member Services team can help.

Name-the-Day delivery/weekend delivery

Our name-the-day carrier service gives you maximum convenience. Choose which weekday you'd like to receive your wines and most orders will be delivered within 48 hours (two working days) depending on the time of day the order is placed. Find out more about our free name-the-day delivery service.

Carrier postcode exclusions

Outside our busiest month of December, over 95% of member addresses are served by our full range of carrier delivery options. For some distant postcodes, however, standard delivery takes a little longer and the 'name-the-day', next day and Saturday carrier services are not available. View carrier postcode exclusions.

Order Tracking

Provided we have your email address you will be sent a delivery notification email (excepting gift orders) when the order has been picked, packed and has left the warehouse. You can track the progress of most orders in the My Account area of our website. Some postcode exclusions apply.

Order Cancellation

No longer need your order or changed your mind? You may cancel your order, in part or in full, for up to seven working days after the day on which delivery is made (under regulations covering distance selling). If an order is cancelled in this way, The Wine Society will reimburse the appropriate sum within 30 days of cancellation. No charge will be made for cancellation of the goods except where there has been a prior agreement to purchase the goods on a sale or return basis. Wines bought en primeur are excluded.

Northern Ireland

Yes, The Wine Society does deliver to Northern Ireland, but please note it may take a little longer than the four days quoted for carrier deliveries. However, name-the-day services are available in Northern Ireland. Alternatively, there is a collection facility in Newry, County Down. More information on that here.

Collections from Stevenage

Members can pre-order wines, arranging for collection from the Cellar Showroom in Stevenage. More information here.

4.4. Cookie Policy

By using The Wine Society website, you agree to cookies being used in accordance with the policy outlined below. If you do not agree to this, you must alter your browser settings to turn off cookies or block those types which are unacceptable to you or cease using the website.

The Wine Society uses cookies to enable easy navigation and shopping on the website. We take the privacy of all who use our website very seriously and ensure that our use of cookies complies with current EU legislation. The following guide outlines what cookies are, the types of cookies used on The Society's website and how they work.

You may alter your browser settings to turn off cookies or block those types which are unacceptable to you, but this will cause difficulties when accessing and using some areas of the site. Instructions on how to do this can also be found below.

4.4.1. What are 'Cookies'?

  • Most major websites use cookies.
  • A cookie is a very small data file placed on your hard drive by a web page server. It is essentially your access card, and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you.
  • Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.
  • The purpose of a basic cookie is to tell the server that you returned to that web page or have items in your basket. Without cookies, websites and their servers have no memory. A cookie, like a key, enables swift passage from one place to the next.
  • Without a cookie every time you open a new web page the server where that page is stored will treat you like a completely new visitor.
  • More recently, cookies have also been used to collect information about the user which allows a profile of their preferences and interests to be created so that they can be served with interest-based rather than generic information about available goods and services.

4.4.2. How do Cookies help The Wine Society?

Cookies allow our website to function effectively. Cookies also help us to arrange content to match your preferred interests more quickly. We can learn what information is important to our visitors, and what isn't.

4.4.3. How does The Wine Society use cookies?

The Wine Society does not accept advertising from third parties and therefore, as a rule, does not serve third-party cookies. Exceptions to this include performance/analytical cookies (see below), used anonymously to improve the way our website works, the provision of personalised recommendations, and occasions when we may team up with suppliers to offer special discounts on goods or services.

The Society uses technology to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to our site.

4.4.4. What type of cookies does The Wine Society use?

We use the following three types of cookies: Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are required for the operation of our website, enabling you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services like shopping baskets or e-billing cannot be provided. Under this heading, we currently use the following cookies:

  • Authentication Cookie and Anonymous Cookie
    These cookies remember that you are logged in to your account – without them, the website would repeatedly request your login details with each new page you visit during your time on our website. They are removed once your session has ended.
  • Session Cookie
    These cookies are used to remember who you are as you use our site: without them, the website would be unable to tell the difference between you and another Wine Society member and facilities such as your basket and the checkout process would therefore not be able to function. They too are removed once your session has ended. Functionality & Targeting/Tracking Cookies
These cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our website and to provide enhanced features. This allows us to personalise our content for you. Under this heading, we currently use the following cookies:

  • Unique User Cookie
    This cookie is used to:
    • store your share number in order to identify that you have visited the website before. Without this cookie, we would be unable to tell whether you are a member or not.
    • record your visit to the website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We use this information to make our website, the content displayed on it and direct marketing communications we may send to you or contact you about more relevant to your interests.
    • This cookie expires after 13 months.
  • Peerius Cookies
    These third-party cookies are used to provide you with personalised recommendations based on your purchase and browsing history. They expire within 4 hours of your visit. Performance/analytical cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information which identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. Under this heading, we currently use the following cookies:

  • Google Analytics Cookies
    These are third-party cookies to enable Google Analytics to monitor website traffic. All information is recorded anonymously. Using Google Analytics allows The Society to better understand how members use our site and monitor website traffic. Authentication Cookie
In order for us to ensure that your data remains secure it is necessary for us to verify that your session is authentic (i.e. it has not been compromised by a malicious user). We do this by storing an otherwise meaningless unique ID in a cookie for the duration of your visit. No personal information can be gained from this cookie.

4.4.5. How do you turn cookies off?

All modern browsers allow you to modify your cookie settings so that all cookies, or those types which are not acceptable to you, are blocked. However, please note that this may affect the successful functioning of the site, particularly if you block all cookies, including essential cookies. For example, In Internet Explorer, go to the Tools Menu, then go to Internet Options, then go to Privacy. Here you can change the rules your browser uses to accept cookies.
