Wine Club Home Tastings

We hold a free virtual wine tasting for each case, in the week that the case is released. So, wherever you are, we can meet ‘in person’ and talk through the wines, see a few of the pictures we remembered to take, maybe even get a producer to drop in.
Our home wine tastings last about an hour, brevity and pretension are met with a hard stare, we aim to make the events as joyous as the wines themselves. As a member you are welcome to join in any of the home tastings, whether you are tasting along or not. 

You can subscribe to always receive a Home Tasting Kit 
Conspirators Home Tasting Kit £21.60 delivered

The Ethos Behind our Wine Club

Ben and Emma Robson; Bat and Bottle on Tour - taken at Fattoria Santa Vittoria

Bat and Bottle’s Wine Club reflects what Emma and I love about our business – meeting and buying directly from dedicated, small wine grower producers - and being the first contact for our clients.

Our vision of a wine club was twenty years in the making! We always wanted it to be different: special, inclusive and inviting; a warm welcome into our personal world of really good Italian wine.

We have been importing directly from Italian producers for over 25 years, so the normal hyperbole of boutique wineries, small production, limited availability and exclusivity is in fact all entirely true; our youth may have been exchanged for experience and back pain but our focus remains resolutely ‘artisan’.

Members of Bat and Bottle's Wine Club give that little extra flexibility to be able to actively seek out those small, exciting parcels, where volumes just don’t add up commercially.
Our wine club ensures there are enough of us across the UK invested and eager to explore and enjoy.

 We import wine that is hard to find and easy to love…

… wines that we would normally buy for ourselves - usually only available in tiny quantities, often from newer or undeservedly overlooked small producers. These are dedicated artisan folk, with a strong drive for sustainable farming in its many guises.

 

Limited Membership

Our insistence on buying only the wines that fascinate us has ensured a niche small enough to stunt unnecessary growth. We reflect this niche scale in our wine club and each vinous solution that we are offering has a limited membership.
Our free, live, online tastings are delivered in person for every case, so there is opportunity to share our infectious passion and enthusiasm and join a community that is genuinely excited about good wine.
Every single one of our members receives a personal level of service and expertise that can only be found with an experienced, specialist wine merchant such as ours.
