Although The Wine Society has a massive range which includes a fairly comprehensive mix of regions and styles as well as formats ranging from bag in box to jeroboams, there are still a few instances where I have thought to myself 'I wish The Wine Society sold…".
There are various reasons why a wine might be missing from the range, sometimes the vintage isn’t up to par with previous or there are limited stocks of certain wines so its only put in a spotlight or there simply isn’t enough demand. The Wine Society does however stock quite a few rarer wines such as some of the Jura wines as well as smaller wine producing regions such as Canada and Moldova to name but a few.
Have you had any thoughts when looking through the range of wines and thought ‘I wish The Wine Society sold that’?
For me there are a few:
White Port - I had a white Port and tonic when I was over in the Douro, such a nice refreshing summer drink akin to a G&T alas its not that common in the UK
Sekt - German sparkling wine, much like Prosecco its easy drinking, I haven’t managed to get a bottle of it yet as I think its mainly kept within the country
Sake - Much like Sherry its quite an acquired taste but might be great to have the ability to purchase some ‘benchmark’ Sake as a way of trying a new style of wine.
Interesting to see what others think about this.
