What is Sampling?


Each of us has different tastes in wine, so we believe that you need to try a wine before deciding whether to buy it. 

In each shop we have 80 wines available to sample every day, ranging from inexpensive party wines to the world's finest bottles. 

You pay a small fraction of the bottle price for each sample so there is no pressure to buy and complete freedom to try whatever you fancy. 

Just come into the shop and ask for a sampling card and we will explain the rest.


What is currently sampling?


In each shop we have 72 wines arranged by grape variety, so you can compare the same grapes from different countries, prices and vintages. We also have a special sampling machine in each shop which is dedicated to some fascinating and occasionally very expensive wines.
