Welcome to Virgin Wines Australia!

Terrific wines. Big savings. And Moet & Chandon!

To celebrate the launch of Virgin Wines Australia we are offering you, our beloved Virgin family and friends, the opportunity to pick up 12 of the most mouth watering, jaw dropping boutique wines we could find.

What's more, because you mean so very much to us, we have teamed up with one of the world's most recognisable luxury brands - Moet & Chandon - and decided it's only fair to include a bottle of their famous Brut Imperial for just $99 (plus shipping).

You also get the privilege of passing this AMAZING offer onto your nearest and dearest, allowing them to reap the benefits of your success.

Sound too good to be true? It gets better…

The smarter way to buy your wine!

There's no catch. When you buy this case we'll offer you a specially selected, handcrafted case of wine every 3 months. It's entirely up to you whether you take it; this is our Discovery Club, no dull big brands. No fuss.

Oh, and if you don't like a wine, let us know and we'll give you your money back!

The fun starts with 12 fantastic wines and a bottle of the very best bubbly, all for less than a hundred smackers…

      Richard Branson has nothing to do with this… This is owned by the SundayTimes Wine Club in the UK. They are very dour catalogue business who purchased the "virgin wines" brand to look cooler.

    "When you buy this case we'll offer you a specially selected, handcrafted case of wine every 3 months"

    what does that mean?

    •  

      We select a Discovery Club case for you every quarter. Our best finds for the season. Wines for sunshine >in summer and in winter the opposite. Common sense really.

      You'll pay just $149.99 (plus shipping). We'll give you a heads-up when your case is ready. Accept it, >change the wines, delay delivery or skip altogether. It's up to you.

        So there's no obligation to accept any of these cases?

        As in, this isn't some sort of subscription service?

          As above - "You'll pay just $149.99 (plus shipping). We'll give you a heads-up when your case is ready. Accept it, change the wines, delay delivery or skip altogether. It's up to you."

      That one says: "$80 discount applies to introductory cases - worth $179.99, reduced to $99.99 (plus shipping) with this voucher. "
      ie same as above except no bubbly.

      Call me paranoid, but is that a full-sized bottle of Möet?

  •  

    Where can I see a list of wines that come in a package? Looked everywhere on sign up page and couldnt find it.

    •  

      click on "view you case details" for a javascript popup.

      The bubbly is this one:

      •  

        Are you sure about the bottle size for the Moet Manic? I couldn't find any reference to the size of the bottle that comes with the offer. Guess I am paranoid too.

        •  

          I'm wondering the same…

        • +2 votes

          Yes, sure. I took the bait, made the order, and that is the product code on the invoice.

  •  

    Ordered. At the very least that's Christmas shopping done.

  •  

    Make sure you cancel the subscription after you order or you will getting and paying for a case of wine every 3 months

    •  

      I don't think so. They don't aks you to agree to such. All is says is they will offer you a case every 3 months, and "reserve" one according to your preferences. I was suspecting one of those "book of the month club" type rackets too.

      •  

        If you do nothing, they will ship you case. If you don't believe me, give them a call.

        •  

          Plus, from what I can tell from their site… the next one they ship you costs more than this one. I pruchased the 12 + Moet for $99 but will canx the subscription ASAP.

    FREE Moet & Chandon Offer

    How much for these in the shop?

  •  

    Mine turned up today. The Moet is a full 750ml bottle. Probably share it tonight - going to an early Xmas dinner - should go well. I got 3x4 reds. They are all brands I'm not familiar with but the provenance is good eg Coonawarra Cab Sav, McLaren Vale x 2, Clare Valley Shiraz. Will keep most a few years yet as 3 x 2009, 1 x 2010. I'd recommend this as a good buy for $99 + delivery.

    •  

      They are all brands I’m not familiar with

      probably because they are Virgin/Winepeople house brands ("Black & Gold"), not actual wineries.
      So ignore the RRP, and see how it tastes.

        I just looked at the website, and they tell you who the winemaker is.
        A bit of googling, and you see for example that "The Black Pig" (Captain Pugwash's ship?) comes
        from a contract producer, Loom Wine. Loom buys the grapes, and sells the wine to Winepeople, who stick their own label on it.
        http://www.winecompanion.com.au/wineries/2227/Loom%20Wine

        Just got mine and am looking forward to tasting some.

    Drank the Moet - very good. Thought this a good deal (all reds) so ordered another 13 using a second Virgin Velocity membership we have. Wondered if you have to have a Velocity number or is it just something you can fill if you have one?

    2nd box turned up today. The Clare Valley Black Pig Shiraz and the Coonawarra Bent Wing Cab Sav were 'sold out'. Substitution wines were
    Coonawarra Cab Sav = Leconfield, Hamilton Block 2009 and
    Clare Valley Shiraz = Koonowla 'The Ringmaster' 2007
    I usually try to keep my Shiraz and Cab Savs 5 - 10 years, particularly Coonawarra, so they are all in the cellar wine racks.

    I'm pleased about the 3 bottles of Leconfield Coonawarra Cab Sav as have heard of Leconfield before. Usually around $25 it seems.

    Koonowla The Ringmaster Shiraz is easily discovered on the web at $18 and reads well (from an historic winery).

    With these substitutes this 13 (reds) offer is a very good buy now

    •  

      Dear All I joined this club before Xmas- going to keep the white wines in supply - NO Moet offer - still $99
      Each of the white is young to fresh-squeezed - none of them should be as tart as vinegar - they all are - including the NZ Marlborough Sav.Blanc - I am personally totally disenchanted - if RB has his name on this - it is not a good venture. The final irony was getting 'the book' that came with the wines about their excellence. Sorry white-wine lovers, I can do SO much better than this in the bargain bins at the local. Totally pissed.
      Loosely

      •  

        Tart seems to be the fashion for white wines in Australia. I don't know if is my taste changing, or the style of white wines, but I find it safer to stick to reds now. The reds I got from Winepeople/Virgin were OK so far, but not so good that I have not cancelled the subscription. Good for $99, and great with the Moët.

        When you say "vinegar" it implies acetic acid, a very bad thing. Surely not?
