This offer expired on 15 May but please make use of the coupon ‘slowsummer2020’ when subscribing this summer to receive a 25% discount off the regular price.

At, we’ve been doing all we can to actually increase coverage of wines from around the world. We’ve every intention to keep this up for as long as it takes to get through this and give our subscribers as much to read as possible while so many of us are in some form of isolation around the world.

Why expand when everything else (including jobs) is currently scaling back? Because at the very least, if we’re stuck at home, we should all be able to read, enrich, and get ready for a life–that while potentially different than the one we’ve known before–will hopefully be brighter and fuller of interesting wine than the one we have now in confinement.

This free one-year subscription gets access to a decade’s worth of articles, regional profiles, winemaker interviews, an extensive tasting note database, and forthcoming highly-analytical Tasting Reports (such as Xarel·lo!) Yes, it may seem hard to believe given that all travel has ceased, but in the pipeline there are currently several current-vintage tasting reports for wine regions in Spain as well as other thematic articles.

Acknowledging the difficult situation hospitality professionals are currently experiencing due to Covid-19, we’d love for all of you to join us, whether under-employed or well, not employed, and stay connected with as much wine geekery as possible while life slowly gets back to normal–whatever the new normal might be. All you have to do is fill out this form [expired] and we’ll email you with your login details.

And just to make it even more appealing, everyone who takes advantage of this will be entered to win a set of the Vinologue books, sent anywhere in the world.

Likewise for anyone not in hospitality who would like to directly support independent, ad-free, non-sponsored wine journalism, do consider subscribing to the site.

And last but not least, please feel free to reach out. Wine is inherently social and we live in some very strange, very lonely times, so don’t forget to stay in contact with fellow wine geeks, let us know if you have an article idea about something that you finally have time to write up, or simply to share the details of the last exciting wine you drank.

Stay safe, stay at home, and also, stay well-read!
