Independent real wine specialist

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 range of malt whisky, brandy, grappa, port, fine hand-rolled cigars, local craft beers, mead, 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!

Summer 2018 – Despite Alice’s best efforts, our website got a little left behind in the early part of this year.

We’ve more or less got everything shipshape now, but if you’re making a special journey for a particular bottle, it’s still a good idea to give us a quick call and check that we haven’t accidentally sold it.

Similarly, we often have exciting finds which we haven’t quite got round to listing yet – so it always pays to ask us what’s new!

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