En Primeur: How does it work?
Orders by telephone, website and post will be accepted.
Orders need to arrive at Stevenage by 8pm, Tuesday 24th September, 2019 and will be processed thereafter. Members whose orders have been received by this date will receive confirmation of their purchase by Tuesday 15th October, 2019 at the latest.
If demand exceeds supply
The Society has a long relationship with this producer and access to good quantities of wine. It is possible however that demand may exceed supply for individual wines, in which case we will share out (as far as is practical) the available stock equally amongst ordering members. If this still does not allow every member to have some wine, then as a final resort we divide members into groups depending on their level of support for The Society (quantity of wine bought, spend, orders placed etc). Members who have given greater support to The Society will have a better chance (but no certainty) of being allocated wine, and those who have given less support will have a lesser chance (but still a chance). We will offer a similar wine as a substitute if the original choice cannot be provided, or members may nominate their own substitute when ordering. Doing so will not lessen the chance of receiving the original wine.
Our Society’s Members’ Reserves is a purpose-built, temperature-controlled facility offering members access to optimum storage conditions. The annual rental charge is £8.64 per case inclusive of VAT and insurance at replacement value. Members can also remove a few bottles of a full case stored in Reserves. Please visit here for more details.
You now have the opportunity to store your en primeur wines with The Society ‘in bond’, which means that the duty and VAT are payable when the wine is delivered to you.
