I just sent this message using the website feedback form. I had to edit my message quite heavily because of the limited message length allowed by the form, but I think I am clear enough.
Here it is:
You have been selling more wines in en primeur offers. I know a wine merchant who provided one of the wines for an offer. He tells me it was very profitable for him and you. I think these offers discriminate against those members who have limited funds. They are unfair and not appropriate for a cooperative.
I wanted to buy some Gratien 2012, but you only offered it en primeur in unit sizes that I couldn’t afford. Should I be denied a Wine Society staple because I can only afford to get a couple of bottles at a time?
Now you are doing it again with Boizel Grand Vintage, a wine I would also like to own a couple of bottles. You are prevent the less well off from getting wines because you only sell them in en primeur offers in expensive unit sizes.
I am disabled with an extremely limited income. But I am a regular customer even though my orders may be small. I shouldn’t be denied wines. I shall be taking this isuue up with the committee.
