Nick Thomas
STORE MANAGER - NICK THOMAS

Nick has inhabited the world of wine for so long that Bacchus and Dionysus probably asked him for advice! Nick is older than most of the vines that produce the grapes,that make the amazing wines on our shelves. His roots too go deep! Nick spent 8 years in France with his better half Laura, where they owned and ran a couple of Bar/Restaurants and his love of the European epicurean culture is deep seated. He has also spent a lot of time in Italy and counts as friends so many winemakers and restauranteurs, that he’ll never have to pay for a glass of wine or a meal for the rest of his life!

Nick created and taught a Wine Education Course for Liverpool City council for 5 years,has acted as a consultant for Michelin starred restaurants and has hosted so many tastings he’s lost count! Come in and he will share his passion for both food and wine and will take your taste buds on the most interesting journey they’ve ever been on!

We have a busy calendar of events here in Chester. Whether you're looking for a wine tasting, gin tasting, whisky tasting or Champagne, we host an array of different tastings all year. We are regularly visited by wine importers and producers from all over the world who host tastings with us, and we always take the opportunity to show off our fantastic food alongside our wine! Well, why wouldn't we?

You can book places on our forthcoming tasting evenings here online, or call into the shop. You can also purchase Tasting Vouchers to give someone a great experience as a gift!

We also offer private tastings in store for groups, corporate clients and specialist event organisers. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

  • Join the Dots!

    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!).

  • Ranch 32 Wines by Scheid

    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

    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
