We win Decanter magazine’s top prize…again!
We are thrilled to tell those of you who haven’t heard already that we came away with the top prize at this year’s Decanter Wine Awards being named ‘Outstanding Wine Retailer of the Year’ for the seventh time in eight years.
‘Ultimately it was the ‘sense of joy’ that won it for The Wine Society. Top buyers, great wines, good value, impeccable service, constant improvement and a real sense of community. It doesn’t get much better.’
Not our words, but those of the judges who also awarded us ‘Online Retailer of the Year’ once again, saying, ‘The Wine Society continues to improve and innovate, reaching out to new consumers and engaging existing ones via its community and forum and investing in its online operations...’

We were also named ‘Best Regional France Specialist’ and runner up for Spain, a tribute to the hard work and well-honed fossicking skills of our buyers and your never ending appetite and enthusiasm to embrace and enjoy our buyers’ booty! Of course it is wonderful to receive this kind of recognition from our peers in the wine industry but it has always been and will remain all about getting it right for you, the members.
