Welcometo the Wine Tasting shop

We are both a wine shop and bar specialising in top-quality wines by small producers, providing exceptional value for money. We offer a broad international range with 400 bottles available in-store, at least 20 of which are available by the glass, including organic and biodynamic wines, and our own label varieties.

Pick any bottle off the shelves to sip onsite for a flat corkage fee, or simply buy a bottle (or two) to enjoy at home.

We hold fun and informative themed wine tasting events weekly and also cater for private wine tastings, either onsite or at a venue of your choice.

To complement our wine selection, we serve top-quality artisan cheese and charcuterie platters.
