Outside the (gift) box
If you're unsure of someone’s preferences, why not opt for a gift card? Let them choose from our fantastic range to find something tailored to their own taste. This way, they can embark on their own wine adventure and discover new favourites. You can even use them as event vouchers, so how about gifting an unforgettable experience at one of our fantastic tasting events? What better gift for a wine lover than an opportunity to expand their knowledge and enjoy the company of fellow enthusiasts!
For those looking to delve even deeper into the world of wine, consider tickets to a WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) course. This internationally recognised qualification – run by our wonderful owner Duncan, who has a 100% pass rate! – provides a solid foundation in wine knowledge and tasting techniques, making it an ideal gift for aspiring wine professionals or curious enthusiasts. And it's fun!

You never get the same wine twice, and subscription holders also get 10% off when they shop with us. There’s no contract – you can pause or cancel at any time – and if you buy now you can even get a discount on the first case!
