That first one was at the press tasting and i loved it! Saw the Hungarian and tempted but resisted. I just love dis ivering new Rosés every summer
I’ve had fifteen bottle boxes delivered, in fact I have an empty one stashed for transporting wines when I’m away for a couple of months! It’s not the same as buying a ‘case’ which is always 6 or 12, I think, but they deliver in, I think, 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 and 15 bottle boxes.
The society 100% has 15 bottle cases
Source: have placed orders for inbetween 13-15 bottles before and that’s what they came in.
They have a 2 pack IIRC too (might have been a 3 with one empty)
Sounds like someone over ordered the 15 bottle boxes…
So, I am feeling rather foolish for putting in an order last night just before all these new wines and offers were released today. What to do? Cancel it and start again?
This is good timing — rosé stocks looking a bit low, white side of the rack positively empty (relatively speaking!)
Had this at the weekend — delicious — more on the way!
Favourite summer roses 2019?
This is great @laura, it was stocked about a year and a half ago and I’ve recently taken delivery of more a couple of weeks back! Definitely recommend it .
What will the value of the ‘free’ wine be? Under £7.50 would be my guess.
I’d rather have a % reduction on a 12 bottle case and put it towards a wine I actually want.
Hi Laura. I’ll be adding a bottle or two of this to my next order ( sediment alert )…
…only proviso, I haven’t tried it yet but here’s hoping it’s every bit as good as the previous vintage, which, for my taste-buds, offered remarkable flavour and complexity for the money. P.S. the 2017 wasn’t actually orange more a lustrous golden colour.
Took the words right out of my mouth Embee. Does this mean that when ordering one would receive a case of twelve and an extra one bottle box? How wasteful is that. This doesn’t sound very well thought out does it?
A further thing I’d consider is order eleven bottles and get your cheapest bottle duplicated (up to £10 for example) Surely a better more cost effective delivery option too.
Darn it, you’ve sussed it!
I think from the T&Cs it’s to do with the delivery/collection date (between 17th and 5th July) not the order date, but if you give Member Services a quick ring they can confirm whether you’ve qualified/if there’s a way they can help you qualify!
That has gone STRAIGHT on my wish list! Way over my budget but what the heck! I’ve never tried an over-£25 rose… I’m scared it’ll become a habit now!
I visited this winery last year with @Freddy when we first discovered these guys! I absolutely love this wine and the winemakers were so lovely that I can’t imagine the new vintage will be anything but delish! @Ewan I saw you had some of this last week (thanks to Instagram!) was it the 2018?
No thankfully, we’re using 15-bottle cases so there’s no waste! We also apparently have 13-bottle cases we’re using! As @MikeFranklin confirmed (excellent knowledge, by the way! ) we have variously-sized cases, and it’s been very much a group project involving everyone from buying to distribution, so not to worry, we’ve definitely thought it through.
Almost like one of you does this sort of thing for a living.
It was one of the last bottles of the 2017 - still delish!
You’re right. We have 1-, 2-, 3-, 6-, 12-, 13- and 15-bottle cases.
A 13-bottle case? Just out of interest how does that work?
(Actually I have a 13-bottle order due for delivery tomorrow, so I may find that out soon enough).
It’s a 12-bottle case with a recess scooped out of the ‘filler’ where a 13th bottle can lay across the top of (in between) the others. But you’ll see soon enough, as you say
Maybe you can post a pic of the box to show everyone when yours arrives, @Ghost-of-Mr-Tallis!
Thanks @laura, member services have indeed confirmed you are correct and my order qualifies
Laura, it seems Ewen thinks differently?
