They are future presents or raffle prizes then! Sorted!
Indeed, but there is nothing there I would actively object to and I suspect none mine will make to the end of lockdown!
These £95 cases are excellent, and would certainly tempt me to buy one…but there are none left. Need to keep an eye out. Our daughter has just taken delivery of one as her second ever order - think she’s done pretty well.
She has indeed! White selection looks interesting, the Albarino is great, and Grenache Gris looks interesting…
Trust that isn’t still the Christmas tree in the background (he said swivelling with fingers crossed)…
Yep, we like the Albarino, and we used to drink Chateau Thieuley Blanc when we were about her age - it was one of the first “proper” wines that we really got into, so it’s nice for us to see her get a bottle.
Just went through my £95 mixed dozen case. How did I do? (Actually asking, as I’m still fairly green when it comes to my wine knowledge!).

If that’s a mystery case, looks like a great one.
Awesome very nice case
I generally don’t want too many society labels, just to mix things up, but having said that you got at least 3 of my faves (Bordeaux white, limari Chardonnay and the Fleurie).
Nice selection with the cava and sherry thrown in. For an average of 8 quid a bottle that’s a great case.
Edit: I misread, it’s the White Burgundy, also great
It is indeed a mystery case. Thanks for the validation all!
@HBlackburn yep, I haven’t had any of these (nor any TWS only label or Exhibition wines yet), so it’ll be a nice educational experience.
That’s what these mystery cases are all about for me, getting to try wines you wouldn’t normally buy, great way of experiencing new wines
I would take that selection in a heartbeat!!
At an average of £8 per bottle, a terrific advertisement for the concept. Well done.
The £75 mixed & red cases are back as well as the £95 mixed cases if anyone is interested.
The shiny red van delivered me this today:
£95 well spent I think. Unspeakably excited about the Zilliken
I bet! I had a bottle over Christmas- it was great. Also good are the Society’s Greek white and the Vetrice Chianti.
Don’t know the others, but that’s a bloody amazing mystery case
Agree I would be delighted with that lot!
There appear to be £185/6 mystery cases available
What have members’ experiences with these more expensive mystery cases in the past - are they as good value for money as the 95 for 12 ones (i.e. do the wines typically have a value well in excess of 185)?
Yes, although be aware that usually one of them is a champagne, which depending on your opinion is part of the “making up the value”. Cut and pasted (and a typo corrected) from further up the thread, in the first round of them, I got:
- 2005 Vina del Olivo Contino Rioja (£50ish)
- 2010 Certan Marzelle Pomerol (£60ish)
- 2013 Exhibition Barolo (£30ish)
- Boizel Champagne (£35)
- 2014 Exhibition Hermitage Blanc (£30ish)
- 2014 Beauregard Pouilly-Fuisse (£20ish)
That’s £225ish worth of wine at £185. Probably the least good value of the cases, but still got some cracking wines and a decent saving. Several people here did have a few problems with the value of the wine on the last lot, which hopefully have been sorted by now!
