Your case contains

1 Bottle of each of the following wines:

2016 Wanderer's Heart, Thorne & Daughters, Western Cape
This delicious Mediteranean blend is the very first vintage made by John Seccombe, one of South Africa’s rising stars: it’s a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre, and one of just 4,000 bottles made.

2010 Château des Brousteras, Médoc Cru Bourgeois
Here’s a Cru Bourgeois from one of the best Bordeaux vintages in decades: there's rich fruit and a classy structure, mature claret drinking at its best.

2013 Barbaresco, Cantina del Pino, Piedmont
This tiny winery holds a special place in the history of Barbaresco: its first owner put Barbaresco on the map. Owned by a lovely Italian couple, Franca and Renato, devoted to the Nebbiolo grape, this silky, more elegant cousin to Barolo is delicious.

2014 Bourgogne Pinot Fin, Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux
Arnoux-Lachaux are one of Burgundy's finest names, and this is the perfect introduction to this prestigious domaine. This Pinot Noir is made using some new oak and the pressing of some whole bunches of grapes, leaving it intensely rich and concentrated with crunchy red fruits and silky tannins.

2015 Crozes-Hermitage, Domaine des Grands Chemins, Delas Frères
With an impressive female winemaker, Claire Darnaud, at the helm since 2010, and considerable investment in the cellar, Delas is one of the best names of the Rhone Valley. Fresh, textured and accessible, this Syrah is simply delicious. There’s pure cherry and spice with a touch of smoke, and it’s thoroughly charming.

2005 Viña Tondonia Rioja Reserva, López de Heredia
Lopez de Heredia is one of Rioja's most storied names and this, their 2005 Viña Tondonia Reserva, a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, is the wine for which they're famous. It's made from their own vineyards, a rarity in the region, and aged in old oak vats as is tradition. The wine, called "exceptional" by critic Luis Gutierrez and awarded 93 points, is very well balanced, with bright fruit and energy, and a long clean finish.
  • I’ve just joined the club, what happens next?

    Thank you for joining a group of loyal wine enthusiasts who enjoy inside access to fine wine! Your wine advisor will be in touch to arrange delivery of the Fine Wine Discovery Collection, discuss your wine preferences and answer any questions you may have about the club.

  • Can I buy the Fine Wine Discovery Collection without joining the Club?

    There’s no commitment to stay a member, but when you buy the discovery collection you are indeed joining the club. We’d of course love for you to give us a few months to impress you (and your palate) - and hopefully longer!

  • When will I receive my case of wine?

    You’ll receive the discovery collection within seven days of confirming your delivery details with your advisor. Thereafter, you’ll receive six bottles of wine every other month, once you’ve had a chat with your advisor.

  • So is each wine worth £20 a bottle?

    We select wines which vary in price: you might find a good bottle of claret over £30 or a particularly good value Muscadet under £10. However, we’ll always make sure the total is more than your subscription.

  • How much is delivery?

    We include the cost of delivery in your Fine Wine Discovery Collection and in the bi-monthly cases thereafter. For additional orders, you can arrange to have them delivered with your bi-monthly case at no additional cost, or for free to your local Majestic store if the order is over £120.

  • How long do I have to stay in the club?

    Many customers never leave! While there’s no minimum commitment, we do ask you to join with an open mind to trying new wines and to give us a few months to impress you. We’ll do our very best!

  • Can I pick the wines to go into my cases?

    The best part about the Fine Wine Discovery Club is that we make selecting wines dead easy: we put together a case, and have a quick chat to make sure you’ll be delighted with the wines. Most members take our selection because it’s the best way to discover new wines. From time to time, we may suggest something you’re sceptical about, but most often members decide to give it a try regardless. It’s our job to surprise and delight you, after all!

  • What if you send me something I don’t like?
    We can’t get it right every time! That bottle is on us. Let us know and we’ll send you a replacement with your next case. Of course, the same applies if you ever receive a faulty bottle.
  • Can I buy more of the ones I do like?

    Yes - provided we still have some! Fine wine is often produced in small quantities, so do let your advisor know immediately if you’d like more of a particular wine, and he or she will sort it straight away. If it’s no longer available, we’ll do our best to suggest a good alternative.

  • How long can I store these wines?

    The Fine Wine Discovery Club is designed to offer great wines that are ready to drink now yet have years in front of them should you wish to keep them. We will send you tasting notes, advised drinking windows and the individual bottle price of each wine.

  • Why does your website show two prices for the same wine?

    We show prices “in bond”, in which the duty and VAT have not yet been applied, and “duty/VAT paid.” There’s a “toggle” on each product page to switch between prices. All wines in the Fine Wine Discovery Club are sold duty/VAT paid.

  • What’s the difference between “in bond” and “duty/VAT paid”?

    Customers buy wine “in bond” when they wish to store the wines in a bonded warehouse, deferring the payment of duty and VAT until they wish to have the wines delivered. Customers who may wish to sell their wines on through our broking platform may also choose to do this.

    In order to take delivery of a wine, the duty and VAT must be paid first. All wines in the bi-monthly Fine Wine Discovery Club cases are sold duty/VAT paid.

    From time to time, we’ll feature wines for sale which are being sold “en primeur.” This means that the wine is not yet physically available.

  • I live in Scotland: can I join?

    Yes, if you can collect your cases/deliveries from your local Majestic store. Unfortunately our delivery partners currently do not offer home delivery in Scotland or to Scottish Islands.

  • I live in N Ireland/Isle of Man/Channel Islands: can I join?

    Unfortunately our delivery partners currently do not offer delivery in these areas.

  • Aren’t wine clubs just a way of getting rid of wines you can’t sell?

    Good question - and we’ve got a good answer! It’s quite the opposite. We’d be silly to do that, because we know that Fine Wine Discovery Club members who have a world class experience will go on to try other wines from us. So, our job is to find the best possible wines for the money.

    One way to think about it is this: our Fine Wine buyer doesn’t source wines he wouldn’t drink himself, on his own budget. It’s easy to buy fine wine at £100+ a bottle but our club brings you great wines at a fraction of that price.
