The Society's Annual Vintage Card is released in October each year having been thoroughly reviewed by the distinguished members of the IW&FS Wines Committee, which includes several Masters of Wine.  Vintage assessments are provided for key regions around the world and the Wines Committee try to ensure that regions are reviewed and assessed as to whether they are worthy for inclusion.  Every care is taken to produce accurate ratings, but inevitably there will be exceptions.  There are always some good wines made when a vintage does not warrant a high rating and some poor wines produced in the best vintages.

The 2018/19 Vintage Card, now available to purchase from the International Secretariat of the IW&FS in London.  The latest vintage information on the Card includes a great 2017 vintage for a region and country in the northern hemisphere and one “new world" country enjoying one of its "best quality harvests in memory”.  Please place your order for your friends, customers and colleagues to find out more. 

The Society publishes a non-members edition of this card for non-members to purchase.  It is a very useful token gift for friends, family and colleagues and it is just the right size to include with a card or letter.  Non-members can purchase the Vintage Cards, via the International Secretariat in London, at the prices detailed below:
