Gift cards
8 questions
  • Wine voucher gift cards can be purchased online from a number of different wine retailers in the UK. Things you need to be mindful of are: i) How long the gift card vouchers are valid for;  ii) Where the retailers delivery wine to and iii) How much they charge for delivery. We recommend the following retailers: Savage Vines, Laithwaites, The Wine Society and Naked Wines.

  • The most popular wine to send as a thank you gift is a bottle of Champagne or red wine from Bordeaux. If you are unsure what type of wine the recipient likes to drink then the best option is to send them a wine gift card. This way they can choose the type of wine they prefer and get it delivered at a time that suits them.

  • There’s no expiry date on our Wine Gift Card Vouchers. Recipients are free to use them when they are ready.

  • On the checkout page you can either select for the wine e-gift card to be emailed to yourself (to print off and put in a card) or have it emailed to the recipient directly.

  • Unfortunately this functionality is currently not built into the website. However we can process Wine Gift Cards for you in bulk saving you the hassle. Please email [email protected] and ask us to send you the bulk wine gift card template. We will email you a spreadsheet template to populate and once you send it back we can create the Wine Gift Cards for you and then just send you a link to pay once. 

  • You certainly can – there is an option to add a personalised gift message on your wine gift card at the bottom of the checkout page.

  • Savage Vines wine gift card vouchers start at £10 and go up to £500. Recipients can use a combination of wine gift card voucher credit and additional card payment if they want to purchase something which costs more than the wine gift card value.

Gift Wine Subscriptions
9 questions
  • If you misplace or can’t find the PDF gift notification for the wine subscription you can download it again from your account. Once logged in head to your account page and then select orders. From there you can see your order history and if you open each order you will see a link to download the gift notification again as a PDF. From here you can either print it out or forward it on in an email. An example of what it looks like can be seen here.

  • We leave that up to the recipient of the Wine Subscription Gift. Once you send (via email) or give them their printed gift notification PDF the recipient will have the instructions on how to redeem their wine subscription gift. When the recipient activates their UK Wine Subscription Gift one of the process steps allows them to choose their wine preferences. They can select to receive all red wines, all white wines or a combination of both in their monthly gift wine subscription delivery.

  • No, this is a one-time purchase. You pay for the entire length of the gift wine subscription up front, let the lucky recipient know, then they manage it from there. No further funds are taken from your account.

  • Orders going to Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and the Scottish Highlands incur greater delivery charges. Due to the cost of this we don’t offer them as part of the subscription service.

    We recommend you use a local business in the area unless you plan on purchasing a lot of wine to make it viable. Alternatively, you can sign up to the Savage Vines wine club and use store credit to make larger purchases, (at the subscriber discount rate), in order to negate the high delivery costs.

Indigenous Grape Variety Wines
7 questions
  • Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Burgundy could be considered wine grown from indigenous grape varieties. However, these varieties are grown across the world, so it may be that they are not the best examples to use. Other examples include Grillo in Sicily, Nebbiolo in Piedmont and Montepulciano in Abruzzo.

  • You’ll have to do your research. A quick Google of the grape variety can help. You can also read our full blog post on the topic here.

  • Savage Vines are proud to stock a number of great options. You can browse the full range here.

  • The answer is not necessarily. Indigenous Grape Variety wines may be more suited to low-intervention organic methods. However, there isn’t a concrete link between the two.

  • Well, many argue that through minimising human intervention you get a truer expression of terroir. So, with indigenous grape varieties, you have a grape which is native and perfectly suited to that environment. When it is then turned into a wine through low-intervention practices, you can argue that you are getting a wine which is truly reflective of the terroir.

  • Indigenous Grape Variety Wines are, simply put, grape varieties which are native to the land in which they are grown. For example, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are both believed to be native to Burgundy. Learn more here.
