  • Free Local Delivery during Coronavirus Outbreak

    Whitmore & White / March 17, 2020.

    The rapidly changing situation in relation to the Coronavirus COVID19 outbreak has led Joe and I to think about how we can continue to serve our customers through this difficult period, as well as protect our business from the worst of the economic impact. We have therefore decided to start delivering to the areas around our Heswall and Frodsham shops from 18th March 2020. Continue reading

  • Wine Storage by Elite Wine Refrigeration

    Whitmore & White / March 11, 2020.

    Have you ever wondered how best to store your wine at home? The reality is you don't need a grand cellar with vaulted ceilings (although who wouldn't want one?) but if you're serious about your wine and want it properly kept, you need to find somewhere better than under the stairs! We've joined up with Elite Wine Refrigeration for this edition of our blog, and their guide to wine storage is a great starting point for anyone considering how best to store their bottles!

  • Join the Dots!

    Whitmore & White / February 1, 2020.

    These wonderful wines are made by sister and brother team, Heidi and Roman, at Weingut Pfaffl in the Weinviertel region of Austria, in certified sustainable vineyards around Vienna  (or Mozartworld as Disney would have it!). Their range of wines have won more awards than you can shake a stick at and they were recently voted European Winery of the Year - and it’s easy to see why. Continue reading

  • Ranch 32 Wines by Scheid

    Whitmore & White / January 26, 2020.

    One of the latest additions to our wine portfolio are the Ranch 32 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Scheid Family. The name Ranch 32 relates to the place where Al Scheid (pictured with the Scheid family and team) planted his first vines in California’s Monterrey County in 1972. At the time, winemaking was still in its infancy in California Continue reading

  • Port & British Cheese

    Whitmore & White / December 5, 2019.

    Port and cheese is just so quintessentially British isn’t it? And it's never more so than at Christmas time when sales of both sky-rocket! Putting the festive tradition aside for a minute, with the style ranging from white Port, through aged Tawny styles and onto single vineyard and vintage Ports, there’s no reason why Port shouldn’t be consumed at any time of year! And with the wealth Continue reading

  • Akashi-Tai Plum Sake

    Whitmore & White / December 1, 2019.

    I’m sure you’ll agree that nothing screams Christmas like Plum Sake. What? You’ve never even heard of Plum Sake?!! Fair enough, nor had I until a few years ago, but now, along with Bing Crosby, Burgundy, and Star Wars Lego, it’s on my Christmas essentials list. Continue reading

  • The Grape & The Groove at Christmas!

    Whitmore & White / November 30, 2019.

    Christmas tunes: some people love them, some people not so much. Personally, if I never hear Mariah Carey’s cash cow again that would be just fine! But I ain’t no humbug;  I love a bit of ‘Winter Wonderland’, East 17’s cringy ‘Stay Another Day’ makes me feel bewilderingly nostalgic, and I get misty-eyed at the final verse of ‘Fairytale Of New York’.  Continue reading

  • Jacques' Whitmore & White Christmas

    Whitmore & White / November 21, 2019.

    Jacques has been managing our shop in Frodsham for a couple of years now, and fresh from his starring role in ITV2's Killer Camp this Halloween, we asked him about his plans for Christmas. Needless to say the waxing lyrical went on for some time, but who are we to argue with a man who got blown to bits in the back of a hay trailer on national television?  Continue reading

  • Whitmore & White Chester Open for Christmas!

    Whitmore & White / November 21, 2019.

    Great jingling bells of fire! We've only gone and reopened our Chester shop for Christmas! If we gloss over the past eight months, it's almost as if we never left. The response to the news that we're making a come back on Godstall Lane has been quite astonishing! Continue reading
