Frequently Asked Questions
How quickly can you get my wine to me?
When placing an order online or over the phone you can pick a convenient date to suit you. Available delivery dates are as quick as just 48hrs.
Can I order single bottles of wines or mix my own case?
Yes, you can. We’re pleased to say you can now order single bottles or mix your own case.
The product I want to buy is out of stock – will you be getting it back?
Our website will always show you the most up-to-date status of a product. Wines that will come back into stock will show a 'due-in date'. Products which are shown as 'out of stock' are unfortunately no longer available to order. Our Member Services team are on hand to help you select a substitute.
When is the next List coming out?
Our Christmas List is about to be published and will posted out to members from 9th October. In the meantime, we have an assortment of offers planned and a full email programme too. As always, our full wine selection is available to browse online and current offers can be found on our features and offers page. Our Member Services team will be happy to help you narrow down your choices.
How do I log in to the website for the first time?
To set up your account, you'll need both your share number and the email address you provided most recently to us. If you are unable to find either or both, please email us and we will be happy to help you as soon as we can.
I joined The Wine Society several years ago, how do I reactive my membership?
Once you become a member of The Wine Society, you'll always be a member of The Wine Society: simply use your share number and password to log back into your account. If you've lost your share number and/or log-in details, please contact our Member Services team, who'll be happy to help.
Do you offer an export service?
Yes, we deliver to the Republic of Ireland and to our collection point at Newry. We also deliver to EU countries and the rest of the world. Currently deliveries to the Channel Islands are on hold but we hope to resurrect shortly. Further details and updates are here.
How is payment taken for en primeur wines?
At the time an en primeur order is placed by a member, we verify the card number and get authorisation for the payment (this reduces the incidents of payment failures later down the line). This puts the payment in a pending status (we haven’t deducted the money from the account but the funds have been ringfenced). Once the offer has closed, we then allocate the wines. Once wines have been allocated amongst members and we can confirm the fulfilment of orders, we will deduct the amount owing from the card (up to the maximum amount of what had been ringfenced).

Click and collect is currently suspended until further notice. However, The Cellar Showroom in Stevenage is open and available for purchases and collecting orders.
Can I return my empty boxes?
