Federation of Wine and Food Societies of Australia Inc.

Federation Wine Cellar


Over the years the Federation has built up a cellar of premium quality, well-aged wines, which have been carefully cellared and which are available to societies at very attractive prices for various purposes. Generally the cellar has been available primarily for Federation functions – the Victor Gibson Commemorative Weekends and the Federation Conventions.

In 2016 the Committee agreed that societies be encouraged to access the cellar more frequently and the following access rules have been developed. Access to wines in the cellar must remain at the discretion of the Federation Cellar Master in the first instance and with the Federation President and Committee.

A list of the wines in the cellar is provided on the website, although the Cellar Master will be able to provide the list with prices on request from a member society. From time to time a list of wines ‘for immediate sale’ will be circulated to societies, and placed on the Federation website.

Access Rules:

A society which has agreed to host a Victor Gibson Commemorative Weekend or a Federation Convention can from any point after agreeing to host the function request that as many wines as they wish from the cellar list be reserved pending further consideration.

  • Once they are placed on the reserved this, they cannot be sold to any other society until they are released or until the date of the event.

  •  The Cellar Master will be available for discussion with the host society organising committee regarding the wines available and the reserving of the quantities which might be required for the functions.

 A society may request wine from the cellar for society functions.

  • Other than wines which have been placed on a reserved list for a Victor Gibson Weekend or Federation Convention by the host society, any society may request wine from the cellar during each calendar year, for any reason, up to a maximum of 0.25 bottles per member (as defined at the time of completion of the annual return and paying the annual subscription fee). This may be spread across any number of different wines. For example, if a society has 40 members it can request 10 bottles in total (10 of 1 wine or, 5 bottles of two different wines, or 4 and 3 bottles of 3 different wines).

  •  If a society is hosting an anniversary dinner (decade only – 20, 30, 40 years etc.) the amount of wine that they can request in any calendar year will be 0.5 bottles per member.


  • Notwithstanding these rules above. If a wine is placed on the list for immediate sale, then any society can buy from this list without restriction with regard to the overall number of wines or bottles ordered.

  •  All wine sold to societies (including those purchased for a Victor Gibson Weekend or a Federation Convention) is non-returnable.

  • A freight charge will be added to the invoice for the wines, unless suitable arrangements are made to collect the wines.

  •  A current listing of wines is below

  • some wines are available to member Societies with special pricing
