Anthony Rose: 'The Wine Society delivers on all the features you could want from a dynamic wine merchant'
Saturday 14 April 2012
The staid image conjured up by the name might deceive you into thinking that the Wine Society is some fusty Victorian institution of claret tipplers. In fact, this no-frills company delivers on all the features you could want from a dynamic wine merchant: consistent quality, great value, adventurous range and unparalleled service. Last month I came away from the spring tasting itching to put together a delicious dozen at around a tenner each.

Anthony Rose: 'Vin de France is a new affordable category that makes it easier for French wine to compete with the New World'
Saturday 16 July 2011
In the dead of a German winter, three English wine writers sat round a table in an Italian restaurant discussing French wine. The start of a joke? Actually it was the end of one, the punchline being the French authorities' refusal to allow its more humble wines to use the name of their grape variety. A new French wine category, Vin de France, was born last year and we were being asked to road-test it with a group of German colleagues in order to make a selection for June's Vinexpo, the giant wine fair in Bordeaux.
