Your gift recipient doesn’t have to know good wine to be a member of the Wine Explorers Club, and they don’t even have to travel from their sofa to experience walking the vineyards. And, if they do know good wine, they best buckle up and get ready for a real treat. The monthly subscription lands at their door and takes them on a journey to good wine, good food, good people and good humour. Each month they will be introduced to fiercely independent winemakers from around the world who prioritise sustainability and respect for biodiversity over boring supermarket wine. There is a choice of 3 or 6 Bottle subscriptions starting from our Flight Case. The tasting notes, food pairings, and yes, sometimes even little surprises are extra perks to help make the journey even more enjoyable. Click here to hear more about the 3 bottle Flight Case or here to read more about our 6 Bottle Voyager, Navigator and Commander level subscriptions.
