Service Provider - 3D Wines

3D Wines introduced the concept of ‘renting a row of vines’ 25 years ago. Since that time, they have become a well-known unique gift business and wine specialists with a knack for seeking out great vineyards and wines crafted with real passion and flair.

Their first vineyard was in the Loire Valley in the appellation of Saumur-Champigny. Over the years they have expanded to cover all the major wine regions in France including, St-Émilion, Champagne, Sancerre, Gevrey-Chambertin, Fleurie, Sancerre and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Marketed as a unique gift, the idea is very simple.  If someone you know wants a bit more excitement from their wine than a trip to the supermarket can deliver, then this is the ideal present.

Listening to customers – and acting on what they tell you – is one of the enduring mantras of business success and 3D Wines developed in such a way as to take on board what their customers wanted right from the start.  Alongside arranging vineyard visits for individual members (or Partners as they like to be called), 3D Wines started organising group visits where Partners would meet up in a French hotel near their vineyard and enjoy a weekend of good food and wine in convivial company.

This year 3D Wines will organise numerous exclusive events at their vineyards throughout France – including champagne blending, truffle hunting, relaxing picnics amongst the vines or dining with winemakers in their châteaux. A highlight this year will be their 25th birthday celebration in the cellars of one of their Champagne Houses in November – joined by many 3D winemakers and over 300 Partners.

Andrew Bennett, co-owner of 3D Wines tells us, “We feel privileged to be doing something we absolutely love. Many of our Partners have been with us for the entire 25 years and describe it as being like a family. Their loyalty is astounding. That says it all. 

 Partners tell us that opening a bottle of their wine at home is like uncorking the memories. Some say it is almost as good as being there. This does not surprise us – it’s why we started!”

In the press

Joining a vine-share scheme allows wine lovers to rent their own row of vines, visit the vineyard, meet the winemaker and collect the wines in person. The best is run by 3D Wines.” The Telegraph

Fancy producing a bottle of your own wine at a dinner party but don’t have the time or money to run a vineyard? Then 3D Wines’ rent-a-row of vines programme could be just the thing you are looking for …” Living France Magazine
Customer testimonials

I bought a vine rental as a gift for my husband. What a great gift for a man who has everything! We have already visited ‘his’ vineyard and continue to enjoy the delicious wines back at home.

It is not just the excellent wine – it is the great team and friendly service that makes all dealings with 3D Wines such a pleasure.  01205 820745
