a community of wine lovers

Vino is a different way of connecting with, understanding and enjoying wine, wine producers, and the wine country.

Our final Vino Kitchen event for 2013 is our annual Festive Italian Table on Wednesday December 11th in the Pebblebed Wine Cellar, Topsham. Please email Marc for further information or to reserve.

Stop Press 1/12/13 Marc will be in the Pebblebed Wine Cellar on the Saturday mornings of Dec 7, 14 and 21 with a selection of wines to taste and purchase, as well as wine related gifts and signed copies of my latest book "Wine, a global history" (£9.99 - the perfect stocking gift for the wine lover in your life).

Our aim is to work directly with a handful of small wine producers who make great wines and who are personal friends. We bring these wines direct to you: wines with personality; wines with a story to tell; wines made by real people who work the land, harvest and press the grapes, vinify and age the wines themselves; wines above all that we ourselves love drinking.

Wine may just be the fermented juice of grapes, but we believe that it is much more than simply a liquid inside a bottle: for us, it’s as much about the people who make it, the lands they come from, the taste of the terroir, the local gastronomy, the culture and traditions. And it’s about friendship and sharing.

Vino is about building direct relationships between wine producers wine lovers. We keep Club Vino members informed about what is happening in the vineyards and wine cellars throughout the year. We arrange occasional talks, presentations and tastings about wine areas and producers. We organise wine dinners in conjunction with wine producers and local restaurants. And we occasionally organise Vino wine tours to the great vineyards of Italy to experience, to learn, to taste and above all to enjoy direct at the source.

Above all, our aim is for Vino to become a true community of wine lovers. We hope you’ll join us.
