This event occurred in the past

All wines in The Generation Series are one-time bottlings offering a taste of liquid history​. We’ve divided the range up into four chapters, each one covering a 50-year period. Matthew and Ewan will be discussing and tasting four wines from Series 1 and 2. We have let you know which below so you can buy in advance and taste with us. We’ll also be giving you a sneak peek at two wines from Series 3, yet to be released.

The Generation Series is part of our 150th anniversary celebrations, and has been crafted by our buyers and some of our best-loved producers. Inspiration for the range has been gleaned from our archive of wine Lists. Our buyers looked at the types of wines being enjoyed by members in the past and worked with our winemakers to create new, modern incarnations of historic wines. Each carries a unique label taken from a pictorial history or Vineline depicting The Wine Society’s 150-year history.

We will be discussing the evolution of wine across our history, using six wines to illustrate some of the points. Four of the wines are already available, and these are below. Feel free to buy one or more of them to taste along with us during the event. A further two wines will also feature, but these won't be available until our upcoming third release of these wines on 6th June.
