Friends don't let friends drink bad wine

As an experience-first wine company and subscription service, The Wine Community takes the guesswork out of wine selection and leaves all of the experience to you, allowing you to discover your perfect wine.

We offer wine tasting events or at home wine tasting programmes, and for all our customers the addition of tasting bottles on top of regular orders. Always supporting our customers with an opportunity to taste the wine first before committing to major purchases.

Experience Wine First

Ok, by now you should have got the idea, we want you to have a chance to try before you buy. We want you to get a wine at a wine tasting event, at a hotel wine tasting or through some sort of at home wine tasting, so that you can experience it first.

Many wine companies require you to purchase 6 packs or a dozen of wine you don't even know. Our difference is that you can either meet us in person or participate in an online at home programme where you can get access to dramatically discounted wines to give you that chance to taste before you buy.
