Our carefully gathered little selection of favourite and interesting wines
Basa Blanco 2016 - Spain
A light and refreshing ‘happy’ wine with light dusty aromas and a crisp taste with lime and citrus pith flavours. (Grown organically but not certified organic)
Gavi di Gavi 2016 – Italy
A new favourite – complex and distinctive. White peach notes on the nose leading onto more stone fruit on the palate, as well as delicious honeydew melon.
Woodchester Valley Bacchus 2016 – Cotswolds, England
Made locally from vineyards in the Stroud Valley this aromatic dry white wine is an enticing blend of tropical and citrus fruits with a complex long lingering finish
- And a Rosé –
Regent Rosé, Woodchester Valley – Cotswolds, England
Made in Gloucestershire. Aromatic with bright summer fruit flavours
Prosecco Superiore Il Colle NV - Italy
Dry (for a Prosecco) and refreshing with light peach and perfect soft bubbles, all enhanced by the super elegant bottle
Moet NV Champagne
Perhaps the best known name to make special moments extra special – be certain of this clean, crisp, classic Champagne with citrus aromas and hints of biscuity flavours.
Alpha Zeta Ripasso Supererioire 2014 - Italy
The ripasso adds a dried cherry intensity which reminds us every time why this is possibly our absolute favourite. Concentrated perfume of red and black cherries. Full-bodied and opulent but balanced.
Moon Harvest Shiraz 2016 – South Australia
We discovered this firm favourite on a trip to Lyme Regis – and have decided that it travels brilliantly ! Good berry fruit balanced with a touch of white pepper spice and subtle oak ageing. Moon Harvest grapes are picked at night to preserve freshness and the result is a classy wine that is good with or without food.
Bodegas Rasillo Rioja - Spain
Plenty of flavour but on the lighter side with rich redcurrant and raspberry aromas, very refreshing with hints of liquorice. Great sociable, sharing wine.

Bramley and Gage Fruit Liqueurs
From the makers of 6 o’clock Gin, right here in Thornbury, their range of Fruit Liqueurs including our favourite, Elderflower, and of course Crème de Cassis, both perfect with Champagne/bubbles
Fonseca LBV Port 2011
Bottled unfiltered so that the port does not lose richness and concentration, preserving the deep colour and natural fullness of body and flavour. A rich and sweet melee of red and black fruit flavours with a lick of spice and liquorice. Just made to go with cheese – especially blues such as our Colston Bassett Stilton. Or, just enjoy on it’s own by the fireside or after a meal
