Welcome to the Society of Vintners
The Society of Vintners Ltd is a consortium that has 27 members covering the whole of the British Isles.
The majority of Society Member companies are family-owned independent enterprises whose owner-managers have decided to band together with like-minded entrepreneurs operating broadly similar companies. The objective is to obtain competitive rates for an interesting and satisfying range of wines which are offered exclusively for sale through the consortium's network.
This emphasis on near-exclusivity is a major point of difference (treasured by the Members) between the national operators and the independent members of the consortium.
One member accepts the responsibility for negotiating with potential suppliers from a particular wine producing region and offers to the full committee a variety of recommended options.
After much deliberation based on the interface of price, quality and service, decisions are made to stock and sell preferred wines through the members' network.
Shipping is carried out extensively from France, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Spain Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, and California.
Continuity is vital to many members and providing that the product range and presentation is suitably refreshed, many of the supply deals become, de facto, long term reliable contracts.
