Anyone want to join a wine club?

A new private members’ club is set to open in Pall Mall this summer. But this is not just any private members’ club; this is a wine lover’s paradise.

Set over 3 floors in a Grade II listed former bank, 67 Pall Mall is set to be a “candy shop for wine lovers”. With six sommeliers, hundreds of fine wines by the glass and 5,000 wines by the bottle, wine lovers will have their work cut out choosing where to start. Which is why the wine lists can be perused on iPads. The club also houses a members’ lounge, a wine shop, a wine storage facility and a 12-seater private dining room. Sounds fantastic.

The only downside to enjoying all of this “candy” – the fees. To be a member one has to part company with a one off joining fee of £1,000 (or £500 for those under 27) and the annual membership rate of £1,000. It is said that over 1,000 wine lovers have already joined the club and the remaining 200 places are likely to disappear fast.

If however, you don’t live in London, are aged over 27 and don’t have £1,000 to join and £1,000 per year to stay a member – perhaps you might like to check out our fantastic range of reasonably priced fine wines.
