To allow for social distancing measures we are unfortunately not able to offer any of these services until further notice. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause.

The tasting area

Enomatic wine-dispensing machine

Our tasting area features two Enomatic wine-dispensing machines, which serve samples of wines at perfect temperature for our visitors to try. The two machines each hold eight bottles – one features anyday selections from our current offers and bin-ends, and the other gives you a chance to sample some of our most expensive fine wines without needing to buy a whole bottle! To taste wines in the fine-wine machine, you can buy a tasting card and pay to charge it with credit – the machine lists the price for each sample of fine wine. If you would like to know the current selection of wines before you visit, please email

NEW: Wine on Tap!

We have an exciting new development happening in The Cellar Showroom. Bringing our growers closer to our members and doing our bit to help reduce carbon footprint, we are trialling a new service, offering you the chance to purchase wine by the refillable bottle from our good friends at Gloucestershire-based Three Choirs.

We are offering a fresh dry white and off-dry fruity rosé blended especially for us by winemaker Martin Fowke at Three Choirs. Your first purchase includes the price of a refillable bottle (£8.50), thereafter, you can come in and fill up as many times as you like for a just £7.50.

Our staff will be on hand to help you and pour the wines and answer any questions.

Wine on Tap

Spiral Cellar

If you've visited us before, you'll know our Showroom has its very own spiral cellar, visible through a stylish glass door in the floor next to our Vintage Room. This state-of-the-art cylindrical wine storage unit was installed for us by Spiral Cellars, the leading UK supplier of this type of storage. 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, 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.

Glass hire

Members can 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, and; tumblers and Champagne flutes are also available.

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


'Dirt Track' Cinsault by Duncan Savage, Swartland 2018

'Dirt Track' Cinsault by Duncan Savage, Swartland 2018

ref SA14891, £7.95 per bottle in store, or here

As we march into spring, I felt I wanted to put forward a wine this month that would again help with any shift in season; equally suited to warmer days but perfectly ok should wintry chills linger.

Duncan Savage's 'Dirt Track' Cinsault is just the wine. Rarely found as a varietal, cinsault seems to have missed out on the limelight. However, this South African number goes some way to increasing its appeal. For me, it offers up a ripe red cherry palate with smooth smoky spice all wrapped up with soft tannins.

Light enough to be sipped of an evening it would benefit from a fleeting fridge-door visit, chilled this wine would be great with salmon but also has the fruit to handle heartier fare as I can testify when it was paired perfectly with my chipotle-infused vegetable chilli.

An everyday trouble-free option, in my opinion, to either see us out of winter or into spring. Great, whatever the season.

The Wine Society uses cookies to enable easy navigation and shopping on the website. We take the privacy of all who use our website very seriously and ensure that our use of cookies complies with current EU legislation. The following guide outlines what cookies are, the types of cookies used on The Society's website and how they work.

You may alter your browser settings to turn off cookies or block those types which are unacceptable to you, but this will cause difficulties when accessing and using some areas of the site. Instructions on how to do this can also be found below.

4.4.1. What are 'Cookies'?

  • Most major websites use cookies.
  • A cookie is a very small data file placed on your hard drive by a web page server. It is essentially your access card, and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you.
  • Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.
  • The purpose of a basic cookie is to tell the server that you returned to that web page or have items in your basket. Without cookies, websites and their servers have no memory. A cookie, like a key, enables swift passage from one place to the next.
  • Without a cookie every time you open a new web page the server where that page is stored will treat you like a completely new visitor.
  • More recently, cookies have also been used to collect information about the user which allows a profile of their preferences and interests to be created so that they can be served with interest-based rather than generic information about available goods and services.

4.4.2. How do Cookies help The Wine Society?

Cookies allow our website to function effectively. Cookies also help us to arrange content to match your preferred interests more quickly. We can learn what information is important to our visitors, and what isn't.

4.4.3. How does The Wine Society use cookies?

The Wine Society does not accept advertising from third parties and therefore, as a rule, does not serve third-party cookies. Exceptions to this include performance/analytical cookies (see below), used anonymously to improve the way our website works, the provision of personalised recommendations, and occasions when we may team up with suppliers to offer special discounts on goods or services.

The Society uses technology to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to our site.

4.4.4. What type of cookies does The Wine Society use?

    These cookies remember that you are logged in to your account – without them, the website would repeatedly request your login details with each new page you visit during your time on our website. They are removed once your session has ended.
  • Session Cookie
    These cookies are used to remember who you are as you use our site: without them, the website would be unable to tell the difference between you and another Wine Society member and facilities such as your basket and the checkout process would therefore not be able to function. They too are removed once your session has ended. Functionality & Targeting/Tracking Cookies
These cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our website and to provide enhanced features. This allows us to personalise our content for you. Under this heading, we currently use the following cookies:

    • This cookie expires after 13 months.
  • Peerius Cookies
    These third-party cookies are used to provide you with personalised recommendations based on your purchase and browsing history. They expire within 4 hours of your visit. Performance/analytical cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information which identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. Under this heading, we currently use the following cookies:

  • Google Analytics Cookies
    These are third-party cookies to enable Google Analytics to monitor website traffic. All information is recorded anonymously. Using Google Analytics allows The Society to better understand how members use our site and monitor website traffic. Authentication Cookie
In order for us to ensure that your data remains secure it is necessary for us to verify that your session is authentic (i.e. it has not been compromised by a malicious user). We do this by storing an otherwise meaningless unique ID in a cookie for the duration of your visit. No personal information can be gained from this cookie.
