  • New Wine from Rhône and Burgundy

    Whitmore & White / October 1, 2020.

    Keeping our range of wine fresh and new is a constant challenge for us. Balancing the need to keep customer favourites and best sellers on the shelf, whilst constantly keeping the range new and interesting is difficult to do without ending up needing an aircraft hangar! Those of you who know our shops will know that we are the antithesis of "hangar" so from time to time we have a good old review of our range. Continue reading

  • W&W Welcomes Top Rope Beer

    Whitmore & White / September 1, 2020.

    Those of you who know me will know that I often get accosted by all manner of people who announce apropos of nothing that they have made a beer. "I've done a beer" they blurt, breathless with excitement, "it's made of cabbages and MDF!". I'm not sure if that's what they really say, but I've usually tuned out by that point. Such is the prevalence of craft beer now, trying to find the good stuff has become a dark art. If the moon is just right, sometimes you win. And this time I feel like I've won...  Continue reading

  • Takeaway Wines - Thai

    Whitmore & White / July 26, 2020.

    All too often we spend ages deliberating over what to have from that Just Eat or Deliveroo menu and give next to no consideration to what wine might go with it, opening up whatever's in the fridge or wine rack because "it'll do Marjorie, it's just a takeaway". With more of us staying in-in rather than going out-out this year, we think we can do better than "it'll do"! So we're here to arm you with some suggestions Continue reading

  • Free Local Delivery Update

    Whitmore & White / May 27, 2020.

    If you're one of the hundreds of people who have been using our local delivery service for groceries, wine and spirits since lockdown began, we must start by thanking each and every one of you for supporting our business and of course us!

  • Stranded in New Zealand at Riverby Estate

    Whitmore & White / April 24, 2020.
