Food Booze & Groceries
The Winesociety is Australia's oldest independent wine club, not for profit, founded in 1946. If you join the wine society at the moment, you will get a bottle of wine sent to you that has an RRP of $130 (Wolf Blass Black Label 2006). Membership is a once off cost of $50 (twenty five $2 shares - fully refundable), although you are expected to spend a minimum of $250 a year if you want to maintain your membership.
So, you can always join, get the bottle, and have your shares refunded later (in which case there's your free bottle) although I've been a happy member for over 20 years now so have never considered leaving. Although the competition is harder now than it used to be, with Dan and co offering wine at pretty low margins, the winesoc always seems to have a bottle or two that you otherwise can't get or is at an even better price. I'll have a hunt and see if I can find an example.
They also hold courses in wine appreciation and the like, as well as dinners, plus sell other forms of kit.
FYI - If you can't make it into one of their stores, delivery is $7 a case, or free when you order 3 or more cases. Plus they have a 100% money back guarantee - don't like it, then you get your money back.....
