3D Wines

3D Wines introduced the concept of renting a row of vines 25 years ago. Since that time, they have become a well-known unique gift business and wine specialists with a knack for seeking out great vineyards and wines crafted with real passion and flair. Share in the fun of ‘owning’ a vineyard but without the hard work. Renting a row of vines gives you the year-round enjoyment of drinking the fruits of your vineyard at members’ prices. Choose vines in prestigious and world famous wine regions such as St-Émilion, Champagne, Sancerre, Gevrey-Chambertin, Fleurie, Sancerre or Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Best of all, take a trip and visit your winemaker. As a ‘Vineyard Partner’ you will receive an especially warm welcome, and during your tour and tasting, your winemaker will reveal to you the mysteries of how and why these classic crus taste so delicious. You can also attend one of 3D’s many exclusively organised, fun, wine-related events in France – such as truffle hunting, champagne blending or picnics in the vines.
