What is The Wine Gang?

We are five of the most experienced and respected wine critics in the UK. At the beginning of each month members receive our report which assesses hundreds of  new wines and analyses the ranges in supermarkets, independent wine merchants and online retailers. Our monthly reports cover the UK wine scene like no other guide - including best buys, wines to lay down and wines to avoid. Everything is added to our searchable, 14,000-wine database so you can find the perfect wine, at the right price, for any occasion. Life really is too short to drink bad wine.

Anything else?

In the middle of the month you'll receive and update with our latest best buys, hot tips and news, and we've an online food-matching helper. We also organise fabulous wine events and member-only competitions. Joining the Gang is a smart move for every wine lover - and remember we offer a no-quibble 30-day guarantee: try our service for 30 days, and if you decide it is not for you we will refund your money in full. Annual membership: £19.99.
