Member satisfaction matters, not profits
The Wine Society is more than just another retailer. It was founded in 1946 as a not-for-profit cooperative and its purpose hasn't changed since. The Wine Society only exists to serve its Members. Member satisfaction is the priority, not profits.
Buy shares in your cooperative
It's true: The Wine Society is owned by its Members. Your $50 membership fee is in fact 25 x $2.00 shares in the cooperative, making you more than just a customer. Your say matters every bit as much as any other Member. You can influence and shape the way our Society develops. You can even stand for election to the board of directors!
Although your shares will not accrue in value, you can resign at any time, and receive a full refund. There are NO additional charges or Membership fees; however, to safeguard the ongoing viability of the cooperative, all Members agree to spend $100 every 12 months. The only hard thing about that, is deciding how to spend it!
Support the Australian wine industry
Big brands and big retailers have dramatically changed the wine industry in recent years, with market share and profit driving the change. Our focus is on the wine and the winemakers. Through our Young Winemaker of the Year awards, we support the development of future talent and every day our wine buyers seek out new and exciting wines made by the 'little guy', to share with our Members. Join The Wine Society and you help ensure that in the future we will continue to see the incredible range of exciting high quality wines available in Australia today.
Learn with us
Whether you're just starting out on your wine journey or have a bit of experience under your belt, you've come to right place. As Australia's original wine club, we've been sourcing, sharing and enjoying wine for a very long time and that's left us with an abundance of knowledge that we'd love to share with you. Talk to our experts, join us for our Education Courses, and let us bring our latest discoveries to you. You can never know everything (we're certainly still learning) but it's great fun trying, so why not come along and join us for the ride?
Our monthly e-catalogue will keep you up to date with all the latest fantastic drops our buyers have unearthed and much more besides. And if you'd like us to, we'll keep you in touch with any other great offers as they come along, via email and telephone – just let us know your preferences.
Exclusive Society label wines
Value for money, consistency and, above all, exceptional quality are the hallmarks of The Wine Society's exclusive own label range. Produced by leading winemakers from some of Australasia's best wineries, (e.g. Tyrrell's and Leconfield), Society label wines are frequent medal winners on the wine show circuit.
Our optional Wines Plans cover all tastes and budgets, and offer the ultimate in convenience. With regular deliveries, you'll always have the perfect bottle on hand. They're flexible too; if you have too much in your cellar you can always skip a delivery or have it sent to someone else as a gift.
Best in Society
Best in Society is a sensational annual quartet of wines comprising four seasonal selections crafted exclusively for Members by Australia's premier winemakers in consultation with The Wine Society's finest palates. Recent Best in Society partners have included Kaesler, Bird in Hand, Katnook and Taylors.
The Tasting Panel
Every wine we offer must first be approved by some of the most discerning palates in the business. Winemakers, international show judges, even Masters of Wine – our Tasting Panel is extraordinarily experienced and frighteningly hard to please. When these exacting judges tell us a wine passes muster, we know we can offer it to our Members with confidence.
100% money-back guarantee
With our expert Tasting Panel vetting all wines before they are offered for sale, it doesn't happen very often but should any Member find they don't like a purchased wine, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee. We want you to enjoy your wines and if you don't, you won't pay for them.
Trusted Wine Advisors
It's not just our Tasting Panellists that know their stuff. Our Trusted Wine Advisors are bursting with knowledge and enthusiasm and they love nothing more than matching the right wine with the right person.
Our delivery rates are amongst the most competitive in Australia and unlike many organisations we refuse to conceal them within our prices. We prefer to be absolutely transparent. Also, if you order four cases or more in a single order, we won't charge you a thing.
