Wine is our passion. We’re proud to stock a wide range of top-quality wines from producers who specialise in sustainable, organic, biodynamic and natural wines.
We champion wines from winemakers who make individual hand crafted wines and not branded, industrially produced examples of mediocrity.
These growers work with their environment. Their methods include the use of wild yeasts, natural winemaking techniques, sustainable, organic or biodynamic viticulture.
Put simply, whatever your preference, the one recurring theme which sets a great wine apart from an average one, is without doubt, attention to detail in the vineyard and in the winery.
Unfortunately, as as a result of our desire for convenience, more than 75% of all the wines we drink are bought from our local supermarket. This in turn has led to a significant decrease in quality and thus detrimental to the enjoyment we experience as consumers.
Here at the Grape Store, we want people to know that there is an alternative to the mass marketed brands we are so used to seeing on the supermarket shelves. Our aim is to champion smaller growers and vineyards who value quality and enjoy drinking their wine as much as we do.
The more you learn about wine, the more fascinating the subject becomes. There is truly nothing better than discovering a new wine, a new grape variety or an inspirational winemaker.
