While member satisfaction and loyalty are our most important measures of success, it is also pleasing to get independent recognition from the wine industry.

We are therefore delighted to announce that The Society has been voted National Retailer of the Year by Decanter magazine. This is the fifth consecutive year in which The Society has received this award.

The panel of expert judges, chaired by Peter Richards MW, unanimously agreed that The Society should once again be awarded this title ‘for its exemplary quality, value and service’.

When giving the award, one judge commented: ‘It’s one of the best wine businesses in the world: you really feel the love for wine when you buy from them.

Chief Executive Robin McMillan said: ‘In announcing the award one of the judges mentioned The Society’s consistency. With consistency comes reliability, with reliability comes trust and that is something we have all worked very hard to gain from our members and is a cornerstone of what we do. The judges also commented that ‘you really feel the love’ when it comes to The Wine Society; not many businesses could make that claim!’

Our continued commitment to sourcing the best wines at the best possible prices with service to match remains solely for members’ benefit. Therefore, above all, we would like to thank you for your continued support for your Society.

    A well deserved reward. The WS is more a fellowship of wine lovers than a business. The care that is taken in selecting the best at truly competitive prices and the precision in the descriptions make you feel at home with people you can trust.
    Having been a member for over 35 years I feel that I have always been treated both generously and fairly when I have had a problem and delight in each new posting to find out the latest discoveries/news.
    I am so glad that the increase in membership has done nothing to alter the ethos.

    A reward richly deserved. Well done and may you continue to go from strength to strength. I have been a member for many years and have joined up several family members and a number of friends all of whom say it was the best present they could have been given. Certainly you are a wine company beyond compare in every respect. I look forward to many more years of tasting and drinking your superb range of wines.
