our story

Lockdown has been hard for everyone across the world... It has stopped us from attending the social activities that we once took for granted and kept us locked up in our homes with far more spare time than we ever dreamed of.


Words with Wine was created by Anna Smith during lockdown whilst reminiscing about her separate book club and wine club she attended before lockdown.

Missing the community aspect of both clubs and never straying far from her go to wine or book genre, she decided to combine the two and create the UK's first wine and book subscription club.

our mission

Our mission here at Words With Wine is to encourage wine and book lovers to try different wines and read genres they might not choose for themselves - all while supporting new authors, small wine regions and independent suppliers.

"Great wines are like great books.
Once you take your first sip, they're hard to put down."
