If demand exceeds supply
We have long relationships with many of the producers in this offer and access to good quantities of wine. It is possible however that demand may exceed supply for some individual wines. If this happens, we share out the available stock equally amongst ordering members (sometimes down to one bottle per member). Ordering large quantities of a wine will therefore not increase your chances of obtaining some. If this still does not allow every member to have some wine, then as a final resort we allocate the available stock by groupings. These are calculated via members’ level of support for The Wine Society (taking into consideration quantity of wine bought, spend and also any unsuccessful orders from previous offers). Members who have given greater support to The Society will therefore 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 you may nominate your own substitute when ordering – doing this will not lessen your 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.
Members can store their En Primeur wines with us ‘in bond’. Duty and VAT on wines stored in this way will be payable only when the wines are withdrawn from Reserves.
