Wines at The Cork and Cheese
We stock a lovely selection of beers and wines, both English and International that you will not find in your local supermarket. We cater for all budgets, have a good understanding of our wines and as we have personally tried many of them, can give you advice, whatever you are looking for. We love gift-wrapping our wines and Champagnes so that they look even more special for the lucky recipient. So whatever country, region or grape variety you are looking for, we should be able to help.
We also stock some lovely Ports, fortified wines such as the fabulous Rubis, flavoured vodkas and the gorgeous Lord Nelson's spiced rum liqueur, along with Cognacs, Armagnacs and Malt Whiskies, so if you want something different for yourself or a friend, we can always help.
Wines and beers can also be delivered to most places in the UK, either on their own or included in one of our fabulous hampers! Please contact us to discuss your requirements
We hold regular free tasting events plus great educational and fun wine and cheese tasting evenings.
IF YOU FANCY DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT,
WHY NOT HOLD A PRIVATE WINE-TASTING EVENT?
We have wines from all over the globe:
Apart from the award winning wines from Titchfield Vineyard, we also stock lovely wines from Poppydown Vineyard and Jenkyn Place. If you are visiting friends elsewhere in the UK or entertaining overseas guests why not consider introducing them to wine from your local vineyard? The Southern Shore sparkling wine is made in the traditional way and is a lovely, affordable alternative to Champagne.
You could also consider our Adopt a Vine gift package if you are looking for something different for someone who likes their wine. They’ll even receive two bottles of the Southern Shore sparkling wine with their welcome pack.
Don’t know your Bordeaux from your Burgundies? Confused by all the names? No idea what grapes are in each wine? Don’t worry; we’ll be able to help you navigate your way through the labels and help you select just the right bottle, whatever your taste and budget!
We also stock all the big name Champagnes and if you are buying a bottle as a present, will always gift wrap it for you to add the wow factor.
We stock all of your favourite grape varieties, but have a few that you may not have tried, so please ask if you’d like to try something different for a change.
We’ve also got some lovely Proseccos in stock if you want a bit of Fizz, but don’t want to spend the earth. We’ve also got some mini bottles if you want to treat yourself, either in the café or to take home!
Spain is really back on the wine radar again, so we have recently introduced a new range of wines, beers and cooking seasonings from the little known Spanish region of Extramadura. They are all really lovely and as we have tried them all, can confidently recommend them. We also stock wines from the better known regions too, but who knows, we may be able to tempt you into trying something new instead!
We’ve also got some lovely Cavas, if you like a sparkling wine that is a bit heavier than Prosecco, but doesn’t break the bank.
US wines are really under-rated in the UK, possibly because of the abundance of cheap examples in the supermarkets. We try very hard to bring you quality examples at affordable prices and have found some really lovely choices for you.
We have tasted them all, so can recommend based on your own preferred grape varieties. Look out for our fabulous unoaked Chardonnay, so moreish!
We don’t stock a massive selection of Argentinian wines, but all of those we do keep are lovely examples and we do try to offer a variety of price points to suit all pockets.
Again, we’ve tried them all, so can advise you based on our own experience.
Chilean wines are really great value for money. Many of those we stock are organic or Bio Dynamic, with the added bonus that they taste good as well! We’ve held many Chilean wine tastings and our customers always love them and keep coming back for more.
Our best-selling fizz, Fresita is also Chilean and is a fantastic blend of Chilean sparkling wine and strawberries. Fresita is perfect enjoyed outside in the sun or as an alternative to Bucks Fizz for any celebration. The mini bottles make great gifts and look fab included in one of our fabulous hampers.
Some of our best-selling wines are South African and that’s because they are so lovely. We have a good selection and are constantly adding to our listing and always on the look-out for affordable new examples for our customers to try.
We’ve visited some of the wineries ourselves which always helps when making recommendations.
We don’t carry a massive selection of Australian wines, but try to ensure that those we do stock our quality examples for their price point.
I would say that three of our best sellers are Australian, so it’s definitely a case of “Quality not Quantity”!
We have a lovely range of New Zealand wines and are constantly on the lookout for new examples The New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs and Pinot Noirs always come out favourites when we hold tastings, so their reputation is well-justified. However, we do stock some other grape varieties!
