Why does my wine get delivered to my rugby club?
Your rugby club is used as the delivery hub as this saves distribution costs and enables more of the profit to be shared with your club. The idea is that you collect your wine when you are at the club for normal reasons, eg training or a match. Home delivery is available if required too.
Can I have the wine delivered to my home?
Yes you can. Where possible we prefer to deliver to your club monthly but home delivery can be arranged by speaking with us or when ordering online and there will be a small charge for delivery if this is required. If you happen to be near to us in Gloucestershire then please contact us using firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to collect your wine in person.
How much does my club make from this?
Your club receives £3 from the profit on each box of 6 bottles that you buy from TRWC or this doubles to £6 with a subscription. Our Club Subscription is just £25 per month and then there are further subscriptions at £35 per month and £65/£69 per month, so a price that hopefully suits your pocket so you can start to help your club regularly.
How can I learn more about the wines?
On our website there are short tasting notes and videos from Mike and Gabriel Cuisset, our wonderful innovative wine maker from Chateau Grinou in the Dordogne, France. There are also longer videos if you want to learn more, the choice is yours. You can go straight to the video notes from your mobile or tablet by scanning the QR code on the back label of each bottle of wine! We plan to run trips to the vineyards for you to meet the winemakers in 2023 if you want to learn a lot more. Watch the website for more information.
What if I run out and need wine before the next delivery?
We hold stock so please order online or drop us an email to email@example.com to help you out. If you are having a party, wedding, club dinner or ball and need lots of wine please contact us, order early and we can sort it out on a wholesale basis and also on a sale or return basis.
Can I change my subscription?
Yes you can. Our subscriptions are designed to provide what you need (red, white, rose, bubbles or a mixture) but if you do need to change then please get in touch. Alternatively, you can order additional wine on a one-off basis at any time to supplement your subscription and this may be easier. Please email us using firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch.
Will you have new wines?
Yes we have already added three more wines to the three wines we launched with and we have plenty of plans to offer more wines from across Europe, but they will all be organic, innovative and new to the UK market. We aim to keep you excited by our growing range of exclusive wines.
How will I know about wine tastings at my club?
All events will be listed on this website and also will be publicised by your Club Champion. We will also be attending other clubs in your area as well as rugby related events and Mike’s charity events. Please keep an eye on our events page as well as Twitter page to see when and where you can catch up with us. You can also contact your Club Champion who will know when we are next visiting your club.
Which rugby clubs are already partnered with The Rugby Wine Club?
Please see our Club page for information on all the clubs and charities that we are partnered with. If your club is not a partner you can still buy and nominate your club at checkout so that they receive the funding from your order.
Why do you only sell organic wines?
It’s all about grass roots! The best way to help is the greenest way and less of the nasties is good for the planet, good for your club and good for you! We have been drinking these wines for over a decade and we think they taste great and don’t seem to induce head injuries the next day, so fewer HIAs (hangovers in attendance).
The Rugby Wine Club is a new concept
It is completely free to join The Rugby Wine Club and to start to enjoy our wines and help your rugby club. There is no obligation to buy wines and you benefit from access to additional tasting notes, offers and information.
