In a recent email update to our members about the current Coronavirus situation, we recommended joining this Community so we can stay connected and entertain each other in the coming months - and there have already been many new signups.
Firstly: welcome, everyone!
We hope you enjoy using this Community as a way to discuss wine, food and more with your fellow Wine Society members.
Just a note - this isn’t a way of contacting Member Services. If you have a problem you’d like The Wine Society to respond to, please contact Member Services directly.
We’re all here to help, so don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions or need a hand.
