With over 20 years’ experience, we have built up our selection of vineyards and wines with great care to provide members with memorable experiences and award-winning wines. We have known all our winemakers for many years and most of them are now producing exclusive wines just for you. They are winemakers who want to share their story and passion with you, in bottle … and in person.
Your 3D Wines year explained – how it works
1. Receive your Welcome Pack:
You are now a ‘Vineyard Partner’ with 3D Wines and will receive your Welcome Pack providing you with details about your vines, your wine, your vineyard(s) and your winemaker(s). You will also shortly receive your 3D Wines Membership Card and list of member benefits.
2. Visit your vines and meet your winemaker:
If you visit your winemaker(s) you will be made most welcome. You will gain an insight into how your wine is made. Our friendly team will be on hand to help you organise your vineyard appointment(s) and we can also recommend and make bookings in nearby hotels and chambres d’hôtes.
3. Receive your vintage tasting notes and wine option letter:
We will mail you your options letter and vintage tasting notes in the spring/early summer – see our timetables for more precise dates. You decide how much wine you would like to order. There is no obligation to buy, but as a Vineyard Partner, you will benefit from special prices – often less than the recommended cellar door price.
4. Collect your wine from your vineyard, from our collection point in Calais or have it shipped to you at home:
Most Partners enjoy visiting their vineyard to collect their wine in person* (and enjoy the savings that can be made in doing so), but it can also be collected from our collection point in Calais, or you can have it delivered to you at home (UK mainland). If you choose to collect your wine, it will be safely stored at your vineyard or at Calais for a year.
*Wines from New Zealand are delivered to the UK.
5. Enjoy your wine:
You can enjoy your wine now, or keep it for pleasure in years to come. Your vintage notes will provide you with details about the perfect drinking window for your wine – and you can also refer to the Vintage Charts that we provide in our newsletter 3D Uncorked!
6. Throughout the year:
You will receive our newsletter 3D Uncorked! twice a year with news from the vineyards, details of exclusive events and wine tastings as well as special wine offers.
7. Renew or transfer your vine rental at a special rate:
If you’ve enjoyed your wines and experience, you can renew your rental at the end of your year at a special rate, or transfer into another vineyard/region.
