Welcome to Shaftesbury Wines

Half 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 an outrageous number of super-premium gins, a good rold townange of Malt Whisky, Brandy, Grappa, Port, fine hand-rolled cigars, local craft ale, mead and cider and all sorts of other goodies.

The range is constantly changing with new finds being added and squeezed in, where space permits.  You won’t find industrial mass-produced brands here.  You will find expert, friendly guidance in a non intimidating environment where you can discover something new and delicious.  We feel it is important to have drunk each of the wines so we can offer a personal opinion as well as the knowledge which comes from 40 years working with wine; We love our work!

In the Product part of this site you can search for wines by country, region or grape variety as well as all other product currently in stock.  

The What's New? page tells you about new products or just seasonal favourites


Did you know? Includes a number of interesting fact and figures about the wine industry.

Rage against the Machine has lots of (sometimes a bit angry) rants, articles and information about the dark side of the modern wine trade.

Please drink responsibly; to me this means enjoying real wine made with passion rather than chemicals.
