State-of-the-art tasting area

Enomatic wine-dispensing machine

Showroom visitors can enjoy our tasting area, featuring two Enomatic wine-dispensing machines. The machines serve wines at perfect temperature and a harmless inert gas ensures the wines are dispensed in perfect condition.

Each machine holds eight bottles. One features wines from The Society's current selections and bin ends, and is free to use. The other gives members a chance to try some more expensive wines. For this machine, members are able to buy a card and charge it with credit which you can pay for in store, and the wines will be charged for on a per-sample basis.

Spiral Cellar

As members who visit us regularly know, The Showroom now boasts its very own cellar, visible through a stylish glass door in the floor, next to our Vintage Room. This state-of-the-art cylindrical storage unit was installed for us by Spiral Cellars, the leading UK supplier of constructions of this type. Three metres deep and with space for about 1,800 bottles, its insulation and ventilation systems keep wine at optimum levels of temperature and humidity. Access is via the horizontal glass door, operated via a switch on the wall.

If you'd like more information about Spiral Cellars, or would like to see one for yourself, do pay us a visit and we'll be happy to show you around. If you like what you see, it could be well worth your while!

Buy a Spiral Cellar and start stocking it right away with a wine credit of £250!

1,800 bottles may sound like a tall order, but as a Society member, you can get the ball rolling right away with a reward of £250 when you purchase your unit. This generous thank-you from Spiral Cellars will take the form of a credit on your Society Share and, of course, we have no shortage of wonderful bottles you'll be able to spend it on.

Please contact Member Services for more information.

Advice

The Showroom team is well qualified to talk to you about any queries you may have on wine whether you are looking for special bottles for anniversaries or a wine to partner a particular dish.

Come in and talk to them on-the-spot or send an e-mail.

Glass hire

Members may borrow trays of glasses from the Showroom for parties and large gatherings at no charge. The tulip-shaped ISO tasting glasses are suitable for all styles of wine and are ideal for wine tastings; tumblers and Champagne flutes are also available.

Members need to collect the glasses themselves and return them washed to the Showroom.

WINE OF THE MONTH

Hortas do Caseirinho Frisante

Hortas do Caseirinho Frisante

£7.25 per bottle in store, or here

I have a real affection for Easter. Firstly, darkness has retreated, revealing the bonus of extra daylight which makes the evenings no longer just a time to eat and then sleep. Secondly I always think of it as a stress-free Christmas: no pressure of present-buying (apart from possibly some chocolate eggs!), yet you acquire a mini holiday and get to see friends and family.

To commemorate this celebratory feel, this month’s wine is an easy bubbly likened to Prosecco from Portugal. (ref SG2571)

Conveniently lower in alcohol, adding to its lightness of touch, I feel this semi-sparkling wine offers a refreshing, vivacious citrus-fruited palate but without aggressive acidity, making it the perfect wine for this laid-back month. And all for £7.25!

This April, why not make it an effervescent Easter. This Portuguese present proves sparkling wine is not just for Christmas.
