Katie Butler

Katie has been in the wine trade for 22 years, starting as a wee starlet at Oddbins in 1999! It's all been downhill from there really! Ten years ago Katie founded Black Dog Wine Agency which specialises in wines of New Zealand, such as Riverby Estate, and South Africa, including Waverley Hills, all of which can be found on our shelves. Katie woke up one day and asked Dave (her husband) what was the worst thing that could happen if they imported a pallet of wine. And so they did and the rest is history!

On her days off you can find Katie walking Jet, the black dog who has more taste than I do in cardboard, lurking in Cheshire hostelries or watching cricket, a noble pastime of which I am still learning the rules many many years later!


We usually have a busy calendar of events here in Frodsham, but for now they are all on hold. Whether you're looking for a wine tasting, gin tasting, whisky tasting or Champagne, we host an array of different tastings all year, usually on a Saturday evening. 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.

Catching a haggis is an art and can take years of practice, but it is well worth it as a freshly caught and cooked haggis is singularly sublime!  Continue reading

  • What makes a Craft Beer a Craft Beer?

    Many people view craft beer as the younger, hip cousin of real ale. While both reject the blandness of mass-produced beers, real ale focuses solely on traditional brewing methods, with most served from a cask via a hand pump in the pub. In contrast, craft beer embraces experimentation and innovation in search of new tastes and styles. The result is modern craft brews with distinct personalities that upend the status quo - this is not your father's beer! So what does make a craft beerContinue reading

  • What the Truffle? Hunting for Black Gold!

    Truffles are a kind of fungus that grow under the ground. They are among the most valuable foodstuffs in the world.
