BLAS AR WIN – North Wales

North Wales wine merchant Blas ar Win is the wine arm of Blas ar Fwyd (Taste of Food)at Llanwrst (about 12 miles south of Conwy) is regarded by many as the  best food shop in Wales,  a delicatessen specializing in Welsh and Continental food and drink.

logoSince establishing a delicatessen in Llanrwst in 1988 selling fine food and wine from Wales and across the world, owner Deiniol ap Dafydd has  been serving the general public through his  shops and  restaurant.

The delicatessen business receives a wide variety of produce, much of which either comes directly from the producers or is imported especially for Blas ar Fwyd. The wines come from specialised vineyards throughout the world, while many  cheeses are the product of goats, sheep and cows grazing naturally and freely on the hills of the Welsh uplands.

“If you are in search of Welsh produce, unusual foods, European specialties, artisan & fine wines, traditionally made sweets and cakes, food prepared for your private events and celebrations, or a quality meal prepared with the freshest ingredients, then take time to visit Blas ar Fwyd.”

Very Welsh, although with an English-language version, the website feels a little dated, but works. There is no online ordering at the time of visiting (May 2014), but improvements are promised. You can download a wine list (pdf), which whilst it inevitably features Welsh wines, also has a good range of wines from around the world. Sounds like it could be well worth a visit!
