Our shop Our wine is the village shop’s very own wine club, established to extend members’ appreciation and understanding of the wines Our shop offers from our specialist supplier, Hallgarten and Novum Wines. Since we started the club in June 2020 we have welcomed over 100 members from 80 different households in the village and a few beyond. We have a Facebook group and a WhatsApp group so we can keep members informed and in turn they can exchange opinions about the wines.
Every month a small team of dedicated volunteers selects a number of wines to promote as Wines of the Month, with a special discount for club members. We always have a red and a white, one or more rosés through the summer and occasionally a sparkling wine as well. So far, countries featured include Argentina, Chile, France, Spain, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand and the wines have travelled as far afield as Fowey in Cornwall and Durham. We are always looking for interesting wines that are good value for money and many of our members have told us that the choice of Wines of the Month has opened their eyes to wines that they would not have thought of buying before.
We sometimes have bin ends to sell or else a special parcel of wines which go out as WIGIG’s – When It’s Gone It’s Gone. We have also launched our very first Christmas wine case as we head towards the end of the year
We hold a monthly Zoom wine tasting and social event and once the current restrictions are relaxed we will organise proper wine tastings in person.
Membership is free (to Over-18’s only) and there is no obligation to purchase. You can join in the shop or message us on Facebook. No expertise is needed, just enthusiasm and a thirst for more knowledge about Our shop’s Hallgarten wines.
