The Society's Community

What's your favourite Society or Exhibition wine?



I suspect I might be out there with this one, but I don’t think I have ever had a Society or Exhibition bottling…


OK at £54 this Vintage Port is not the cheapest exhibition wine - but blimey it’s the finest.

Does this whisky count as an exhibition wine ?


If it doesn’t it should…though having it as a tasting choice for the online event might be a little impracticable…


But, but, why? :woozy_face:


On the contrary, especially that I would not have to buy a bottle…


The Society’s French Dry White. This is terrific value and has depth and fruit. A full flavour here and our wine tasting group in my village preferred it to a Montrachet costing £85.00. The WS has some very good cheap wine. There is no doubt that price is not everything. The jump up from a sub £10 to £20 plus is often not reflected in quality


For the purpose of the tasting I’d propose the Jumilla. It was in a case of Spanish wines that I ordered a year or so ago and I was seriously impressed at the quality for the price. I’ve since reordered it (I’ll order more soon) as I’ve subsequently developed quite a taste for monastrell /mourvedre /mataro.

Surely you don’t need to showcase the bigger sellers such as the white burgundy or the NZ chardonnay and whilst I don’t know how well the Jumilla sells, IMHO, it ought to be given the plug that it deserves.
