WineLab’s Best Kept Secret
WHAT IS MONOPOLE?
If there was a Venn Diagram showing wine lovers, secret keepers and bargain hunters, Monopole would lie smack in the centre. WineLab tastes thousands of wines each year, many of these from small winemakers around the world struggling to make ends meet despite housing some true gems.
We figured with the power of the people we could fund great deals, both for the winemaker and the customer. No strings. No schemes. No subscriptions. Introducing: Monopole.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We find something special, literally sometimes hidden at the back of the winery. We know that while it may not be on the main export list, we have a cohort of WineLab devotees who might just love it, so we negotiate the best possible price.
While this wine will be available until stocks run out, the pre-arrival price will be for a limited time only, saving you 25-50% on standard pricing. Once it lands in our warehouse it will be dispatched to you immediately.
There is no fee to join. Simply sign up to our mailing list to be notified when a new Monopole offer lands.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Wines are offered with pre-arrival offer pricing, and as such will be shipped at the first opportunity once they arrive at our warehouse. Monopole wines leave their respective wineries before or shortly after the offer period closes. Each Monopole offer has a different shipping window depending on the location of the featured winery. This estimated shipping date will be shown on each offer page. For European wines allow approximately 3 weeks from placing your order.
Yes. If there are any leftover, they may find their way into the odd Bottle Project box, but typically these offers sell out fast.
We agree to purchase a set amount of boxes and pre-pay the winery, allowing us to negotiate the best price possible. With Monopole we have designed these deals to reduce shipping, warehousing and admin costs along the way.
These could be the few remaining cases of a Monopole offer or premium end of line offers. If you see something you like, grab it before it’s gone! We won’t be getting these wines back.
Not in the slightest. The idea of end of line wines is part of the inspiration of Monopole. For us, our end of line wines are simply the last few bottles of wines that we are no longer able to import. End of lines are a great way to try some truly special bottles at a discounted price.
In the unlikely event that you don't like the wine, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put it right for you. We always want our customers to enjoy their wines as much as we do.
