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 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!
The shop is now open Mon-Sat 10am-5pm.
If you cannot make it during these hours then do please ring and I will be happy to arrange a “private viewing”.
I am happy to accept orders by email or ‘phone for local delivery or collection.
