You couldn’t get a better location for a wine specialist. Situated opposite the historic Abbey, nestled in the centre of Sherborne, Vineyards is an independent bottle shop with an edge on the high street counterparts. Taste is key, which is why every wine has been tasted by their expert team. Recommendations are carefully thought through and taken incredibly seriously at Vineyards. So much so, a second tasting for each wine is “blind” to ensure that no bias can influence the sampling of each sip. Expect to leave with a “clink” in each step and the confidence in exactly what you are drinking with a little taste of it’s story. Approachable and knowledgeable, the team often invite visitors for group tastings and like a spot of friendly competition on their social media pages. Believing in the power of a personal experience, the shop is informal and relaxed. Enjoy a place to browse with a touch of expert advice should you need it.
Hannah Wilkins opened Sherborne's independent wine shop 'Vineyards' in 2005 and has nearly 20 years of experience in the industry. She sees the beauty of buying wine the 'indie' way…
The heart of Sherborne lies in the interesting character in each of it's buildings and the individual characters inside every independent shop and cafe. With the oldest building, The Abbey, dating back as far as AD705, English writers throughout the ages have praised the town's inescapable beauty. Following the footsteps of poets and novelists such as Thomas Hardy and John le Carré, you can still enjoy and discover pockets of architectural beauty from centuries past with a walk through those quaint and rambling streets. Boasting traditional charm and a friendly village atmosphere, the local independents are a winner when it comes to getting a feel for the Sherborne community.View neighbourhoodView community
