A Hat Trick of Awards! And Christmas Tasting Tickets on Sale now!


A Triple Success for the Shop!

Last night we attended the 2016 Ribble Valley Business Awards. And whilst we went along not expecting to win anything this time, we are absolutely delighted to have won in BOTH the categories we were nominated for – The Independent Retailer of The Year Award, AND The Micro Business of The Year Award. It gets even better… we were also ‘Highly Commended’ in the top award of the night, The Bowland Bioenergy Award, which is chosen at the end of the evening from all the winners on the night! A great night for the shop, no other entrant to the awards picked up two wins and a highly commended!

Awards like these mean a lot to our staff who put in 12 hour shifts, 7 days a week, it’s great to know that their efforts are recognised by the community, so it’s a big thank you to Tom, Jen, Matt, Will, Anna and Cara for all their hard work. But most of all our business wouldn’t succeed without the unbelievable support of our fantastic customers who have been coming to the shop and enjoying our wines for the last 6 years. THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS!!

CHRISTMAS TASTING – Sunday 20th November 2016

Our annual Christmas Tasting is here again! It’s an informal ‘walk-around’ tasting which allows you the chance to try over 80 wines. You will be given a glass and a room guide on arrival after which you are free to taste any of the wines, spirits or beers we have on show. With another great turnout from our fabulous suppliers this is the perfect opportunity to get your Christmas wine choices made. We’re sure you’ll find some stunners you just couldn’t be without this Christmas Day! To make life even easier in the run up to the festivities you can place your Christmas wine order with us on the day. Our little elves will take care of everything and let you know when your order is ready to collect from the shop… All in time for the 25th December of course. With entertainment from fabulous local group ‘The Sparkle Sisters’, this is set to be our best tasting yet!
