We are an independent Wine & Spirits merchants based in the centre of Stroud in the Cotswolds.
We provide customers with the best, most interesting and diverse selection of wines we can find. Our range is regularly updated, we import many of our wines direct from small vineyards and list a large selection of organic, biodynamic, natural and vegan wines.
With a combined 30 odd years in the wine trade, from Oddbins in the early 2000's, to running a busy independent in Brighton for 6 years, we thought it was about time to move to the country and start our own business. Laura's family are all from Stroud, so that was good for babysitting, and finding a pretty, bustling market town with no wine shop, surrounded by the most stunningly beautiful countryside meant that it just had to be! We opened in May 2017 just off the High Street, behind Stroud's old Withey & Withey Wine Merchants (now Moonflower). Our little arched brick cellar was no doubt storing wine 100 years ago, so it’s nice to be putting it back into use.
Since then we've somehow managed to squeeze an enormous range of over 1,500 different wines, beers and spirits into what is surely the smallest wine shop in the Cotswolds. Every bit of wall and floor space is now crammed floor to ceiling with bottles. We don’t have a particular regional speciality but always try to keep things interesting, so alongside the classics from France and Italy you will also find a great selection of wines from Portugal, Greece, Germany, Georgia, Slovenia, Austria, and Brazil and Uruguay too.
We've got beers from Arbor, Kernel, Burning Sky, Deya and Lervig, alongside the full range from Stroud Brewery, and loads of nice German and Belgian beers.
Our Wine On Tap section is extremely popular, the whole idea is to save on packaging and emissions from transporting wine. We have a selection of five wines available to take away. They are served in glass bottles for a £2 deposit, or bring in your own container or an old wine bottle and we’ll fill it up!
We stock over 250 different spirits and liqueurs, including Gins, Rums, Vermouths, Single Malt and blended whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Sweden and Japan. We also have a good range of Port and Sherry, loads of miniatures, and a wide selection of the best Cuban, Honduran and Nicaraguan cigars.
We can be found down the alleyway behind Moonflower, directly opposite Mountain Warehouse at 55 High Street, Stroud. The nearest car park is Church Street
We are open 10.00-17.30 Monday to Saturday, with wines open to taste every Saturday and at least 20 different spirits and liqueurs available to try all day, every day.
We have recently opened our tasting room next door, there are plenty of seats both inside and outside and we will be hosting outdoor events regularly. As restrictions are eased we will aim to move our tastings indoors too.
Most of our wines are available to buy online, but there are often small parcels which may not make it to the website. If there are any special requests just give us a call. We offer 10% off any 6+ wines in-store, and for delivery to local customers. Please see the 'delivery' page for a map of our local delivery zone.
