Tony and Barbara Laithwaite

Laithwaite’s was founded by Tony Laithwaite in 1969, who has built the business from a single Ford van making trips to France to supply his customers under a railway arch in Windsor to a multi-million pound company, Direct Wines, that includes The Sunday Times Wine Club and has franchises in Hong Kong and India.

In a nutshell: Laithwaite’s offers three levels of membership of its Seasons wine plan, starting from £99 for a case of 12 whites, also offering members the option of swapping wines in the case, or picking the whole selection themselves, with a 10% discount on the usual selling price. Cases are sent quarterly, unless a greater frequency is required.

Financial commitment: From £99.99 every three months.

Delivery charge: Free on your introductory case only, normally £7.99 a case.

Price for a mixed case of 12: £99, but £49.99 for your first case.

Overall yearly cost: £399.96 for 48 bottles (four cases) over the course of a year. = £8.33 a bottle average. (Note, your first case is £49.99, saving £50 in the first year)
