From as little as £50 a month
The Bat and Bottle Wine Club offers unprecedented access to some of the most extraordinary wines Italy has to offer.
Our Wine Club reflects what Emma and I love about this business – buying from dedicated small wine producers - and we enjoy being the first contact for our clients.
We have been importing Italian wine directly from small producers for over 20 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’.
The Club's wines are those that we would normally buy for ourselves, usually only available in tiny quantities, often from newer or undeservedly overlooked producers; rare parcels of wine that have often been left un-shipped as the volume, and frankly the expense, just didn’t add up commercially.
The membership of this Wine Club gives that little extra flexibility to be able to say yes to, and actively seek out, those small exciting parcels, simply because there are enough of us invested and eager to enjoy.
Delivery months are: January | April | July | October
The Wine Club offers a quarterly case of 12 bottles for the Conspirators - or 6 bottles from the Vini Curiosity curated collections.
Everyday eccentricities for the adventurous.
Each case of 12 is made up of 3 bottles of 4 different wines.
Delivered every 3 months, pay £50/month or £150/quarter.
Conspirator wines give instant drinking pleasure, can be served on any occasion and are wines you are unlikely to have tasted outside their home country, simply because they are so rare or production quantities are so small. Ben chooses every wine for its uniqueness and interest, its quality and its character.
These wines will be enjoyed by those who want guaranteed quality but to explore a little, step off the well-trodden wine path.
Extreme, rare and exotic vinous experiences.
Each case of 6 is made up of 6 unique wines.
Every 3 months £53/month or £159/quarter.
Vini Curiosity wines will be extremely unusual, absurdly rare and have a real sense of terroir. Ben chooses them for their one-of-kind character and their ability to surprise.
If you are vini-curious, relish wines that are far from run-of-the-mill and you are happy to venture into the unknown in your wine selections: join Vini Curiosity.
“Everyday eccentricities for the adventurous”
A quarterly option on a 12-bottle case of quirky, interesting and limited-production wines.
As the irresponsible buyer, I promise never to give you anything dull – these wines will come from the artisan producers to whom I have dedicated my liver.
