Most of us taking part here in this ‘test phase’ are reasonably long-standing members of The Society and experienced in matters of ordering, Members’ Reserves, tastings, finding member reviews of wines, and so on.
However, this community will hopefully become one of the first places that new members joining in future will turn to read about the Society, what wines to try and to get advice on any issues they may have on making the most of their membership.
We will shortly be encouraging some brand new members to test the community with us, and I wanted to prepare the site with some information that would be useful for them - and I need your help.
If you were to think back to when you first joined, compared with what you know now, what is the piece of advice you wish had been given then that would have made your life easier?
What piece of advice would you pass on to new members?
In my case it would probably be to check out the Wine Without Fuss options earlier. I kept putting it off, and buying interesting looking cases individually instead, but occasionally finding myself without decent wine at home on a weeknight and wishing I had a magic fairy-godmother that had sent me cases to stock the shelves in the interim.
I will put your suggestions together in a “FAQ” format at some stage in the next few days and weeks, and post new questions to the same area so more experienced members might proffer their wisdom and we can build up the list.
