Joining the Cambridge University Wine Society (CUWS) is a rewarding and fun experience. Our membership is as broad as the University’s — from experienced wine tasters right through to people who just want to try something new.

As a member of CUWS, you will be given access to advanced tickets to our events at a reduced price. Most of our events sell out in the members’ pre-sale, so becoming a member is a way to guarantee your place at our events.

Membership to CUWS also gives you a range of discounts with our partners with your CUWS membership card.

Discounts include:

  • Up to 40% off selected Decanter wine events (voucher codes sent out via the CUWS mailing list).
  • 10% discount at Cambridge Wine Merchants for wines purchased in stores
  • 10% discount at Thirsty Cambridge
  • 10% discount at Noel Young Wines for wines purchased in the shop
  • 10% discount at Grape Britannia for wines purchased in the shop
  • 15% discount on orders over £45 from Thorne Wines, including free delivery for members within the Cambridge delivery zone (contact the Membership Officer for the code)
  • 10% discount on cases and half cases with the Georgian Wine Society (see below for details)

Specialising in the finest Georgian wines, use your CUWS discount to try something a little different. Simply choose your wines from the wide selection (including mixed cases) at and send your order to with the discount code ‘CUWS’. The GWS will then send you a secure electronic invoice with your 10% discount allowing you to pay either directly over the web, or by bank transfer.

Multi-year memberships are only available to current students and alumni. Members of the public can still buy 1-year memberships. Memberships are measured for academic years, and so will last until the last event of Easter term.

If the email account used during registration is not, or, you will need to provide proof of your student/alumni or staff of the University status to confirm your membership.

As soon as you have paid, we have a record of your membership status, so you can buy tickets at the member price immediately (note that if you bring guests who are not members they will still need to pay full price). You can collect your membership card at the next tasting from the membership officer. Alternatively, if you would like to receive your card by post, please email the Membership Officer with your college or address
