New Italian White Wines for Summer!

July 15th, 2013

This summer we have a great collection of white wines from Italy for you to try! Perfect for an afternoon in the sun, or for accompanying a light meal outside in the longer evenings, we’ve selected 5 wines that we think you’ll love…

1. Castel Firman Pinot Grigio. This is a lovely wine from northern Italy and we think if you are used to supermarket Pinot Grigio, then once you try this you’ll never look back! Pairing well with white meats and fish, this wine is fresh and fruity. £9.95. > To buy Castel Firman Pinot Grigio online click here…

2. Gemellae Vermentino. This is a delicate wine that matches superbly with seafood. From the island of Sardinia, this has become one of our favourite white wines. At just £7.95, this is a great wine. > To buy Gemellae Vermentino online click here…

3. Organic Bianco. As the name suggests, this is a completely organic wine suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. The label on the bottle says “Perfect for post-work wind downs and a great party wine!”. We can’t argue with that! £8.95.> To buy Organic Bianco online click here…

4. Rosa Bianca Pinot Grigio. Another Pinot Grigio which we think will help convert you! This wine pairs very well with mushroom-based dishes as well as lasagne and grilled fish. The palate of this wine is dry and softer than the Castel Firma and slightly fuller in body. £7.95.> To buy Rosa Bianca Pinot Grigio online click here…

5. Verdicchio Colle Stefano. Looking for a nice alternative to Sauvignon Blanc? This is the wine for you! This Verdicchio has notes of melon, apple and flowers and pairs well with olive and almonds. On top of a great taste, this wine is also organic and has become one of our more popular whites.> To buy Verdicchio Colle Stefano online click here…

New Spring Wines & Offers!

May 27th, 2013

We’ve got some fantastic new wines and wine offers online!

New is the Santa Louisa Syrah. Earlier in the year, this was very popular with The Village Vine customers. This is a great value wine and a perfect light accompaniment to steaks, Italian food and cheeses. With 22% off at £6.95, you really can’t go wrong!

The Murphy’s ‘Big Rivers’ Chardonnay is also on offer! At just £7.50, you save 16%! Pairing really well with veal, pork or chicken, this is again a great wine for the price and will certainly help you entertain on what we hope will be lovely, sunny summer evenings…

The Henri Nordoc wines have been very popular as although they’re not in the same price ranges of the more expensive French wines, they are excellent and very drinkable! The Cabernet Sauvignon is a house-favourite and the Merlot is a lovely wine as well. At just £7.95, these are fantastic value…

Real Wine Tasting This Weekend!

March 21st, 2013

Join us for our monthly Wine Tasting This Weekend!

(Saturday 23rd March)

It’s time for our next tasting & this time something a bit different from our normal rotation of countries…

…to tie in with The Real Wine Month promotion we’ll be tasting some individual natural wines from France, Italy, Chile & Argentina.

An increasing number of people are seeking out more minimal intervention, ‘real’ wines from smaller winemakers. Here at The Village Vine, we have always stocked mainly artisan wines from these very producers, although not all would fall under the ‘natural’ wine bracket.

So, it’s great to have a national promotion to support these proud winemakers (wines very unlikely to be found in the supermarkets…!)

Remember, in order to spread the tasting wines evenly, they are limited to 2 btls. (of each) max. purchase on the day, but of course will be available (in varying quantity) thereafter.

As usual we’ll kick-off around 2pm and end up at 7pm. It’s a ‘free, walk-in’ tasting and a good chance to sample something ‘new’, or perhaps a bit different from your normal choice.

We very much hope you can join us this Saturday, if not, pop in soon and see our excellent range. (Including the best range of Local Beers + Cider and premium Spirits & Liqueurs!).

Plus, remember we offer national delivery at competitive rates. (custom-made gift-boxes: 1, 2, 3 btl, or 6/ 12 btl. cases).

To shop online, visit our online shop at www.thevillagevine.co.uk/shop!

Wine Tasting Saturday 16th February!

February 14th, 2013
FREE Wine Tasting: This Saturday in store 2-7pm!

South Africa Fairtrade Wine TastingIt’s time for our next tasting & this time we’re heading back to the New World to look at some great wines from South Africa

Often overlooked by the better-known offerings from Oz & N.Z., wines from this historic wine-producing country arguably produce better value-for-money than the Antipodeans and their wines tend to show a style somewhere between the ‘Old World & the ‘New World’.

We’ll start things off with a new sparkling rosé from our fairtrade producer, Thandi, followed by 2 whites and 2 reds, including a gold medal-winner and a highly rated newcomer from Rustenberg.


Don’t forget to check out all our great Bin-End bargains too …. some cracking offers in store & some not hanging around too long…! The Chapel Hill Chardonnay has already run down!

> Prophets Rock Pinot Gris, Central Otago, N. Zealand. £9.95 (down from £18.95!)
> Yalumba Wild Ferment Chardonnay, Eden Valley, S.Australia. £7.95 (down from £12.95!)
> Ruitersvlei Cabernet/ Merlot, Paarl, S. Africa. £7.95 (down from £10.95!)
> Wooing Tree Pinot Noir, Central Otago, N. Zealand. £19.95 (down from £28.95!)


Remember, in order to spread the wines evenly, they are limited to 2 bottles (of each) max. purchase on the day, but of course will be available (in varying quantity) thereafter.

As usual we’ll kick-off around 2pm and end up at 7pm. It’s a ‘free, walk-in’ tasting and a good chance to sample something ‘new’, or perhaps a bit different from your normal choice.
