Directory of Co-operatives
The Wine Society is the world's oldest co-operative wine club and is entirely owned by its members, each of whom owns one share. A co-operative with over 90,000 active members, The Society buys direct from suppliers, shipping wine from all over the world to Stevenage. Expansion over the years has provided members with a duty-paid Members' Reserves storage facility, mixed case selections, an efficient delivery service, wine advice and around 100 member tastings all over the UK and in France. The Society's co-operative principles were noted down at the inaugural meeting 130 years ago.
