SHAFTESBURY WINES, Dorset

Independent Dorset wine merchant Shaftesbury Wines, offering fine cigars, real wine and “odd beer”

logoHalf way up the High Street in the picturesque north Dorset town, Shaftesbury Wines is an independent treasure-trove of real wines from small producers. You will also find a good range of rare Malt Whisky, Brandy, Grappa, Eau de vie, Port, fine hand-rolled cigars and local beer & cider.
The range is constantly changing with new finds being added and squeezed in, where space permits. With spirits, we can sometimes get the odd bottle of something odd in a bottle so it is worth asking. It’s not so easy with wine as there are millions of different wines available and only a small proportion find their way to our tiny island! If you know the style we can usually offer something similar.
You won’t find industrially, mass-produced supermarket brands here. You will find expert, friendly guidance in a non intimidating environment where you can discover something new and delicious. I feel it is important to have drunk each of the wines, so I can offer a personal opinion as well as the knowledge which comes from 30 years working with wine; I love my work!

A family business run by David and Alice Perry. No online ordering but wine details online with tasting notes. Also trading as the Campaign for Real Wine!
