We would of course like to wish all of our friends and customers a very Happy New Year, and thank you for all of your support in 2016.
As the cold winds descend upon us, there are some fabulous offers available in the shops and online.
Dry January? We can do dry....
Dry whites / Dry sherry / Dry gins / Dry white ports
And many a manner of winter warmers (our mulled wine tins are perfect)....and a motley collection of new gins to boot.
Apparently you can't ever have enough gins, so we now stock over 130! Goodness, had to actually count them to find out!
Also, keep an eye on our Wine Course dates, including our Wine in a Day, which is a great fun experience for you or a loved one.
And get Saturday 4th November in the diary - our Petersfield Wine Fair. Organisation starts now!
If you have any feedback on 2016 (or 2017 thus far), please do get in touch through the shops, online or on social media.
See you soon!
