The Wine Buff Research Programme

From all of us at the Wine Buff a big THANK YOU to all our customers who have supported us since we opened our first shop in 2000. We always appreciate feedback on our customer service, wines and the Wine Buff experience, with this in mind we are launching a research card that gives something back but also allows you to give us extra feedback on our wines and what new wines you would like to see on our shelves. As a research team member you'll be rewarded every time you shop with us. It is an opportunity for you to avail of additional promotional offers, tasting events, courses and regular updates on what is happening in your local Wine Buff.
