Somerset wine shop coming soonBy Gabriel Stone
A Somerset wine tasting events company is expanding its focus to open a shop for its local client base next month.
The Wine Tasting Co. shop is due to open on the High Street in Winscombe, Somerset, on 5 October.
Established two years ago by Kelli Gould, The Wine Tasting Co. runs tastings for both private and corporate groups across the south west of England. While these off-site events will continue, the new shop will offer an additional base for the firm’s tastings and WSET-accredited wine courses.
“Opening a shop is something that I’ve always wanted to do and it feels a natural progression of what the company is doing already,” explained Gould.
Promising a range of wines from around the world, Gould noted that there would also be a strong local feel to the shop, which will stock products from The Somerset Brandy Company, Cheddar Ales and Oatley Vineyard.
In addition to drink, the shop will feature a selection of complementary food in the form of cheese from nearby supplier Times Past and chocolates from Maison Loulou.
Emphasising a focus on “small independent importers,” Gould outlined her mission, saying: “I used to be a 3 for £10 girl and just with a bit of information its amazing how much more you can enjoy wine and that’s what I want to pass to my customers.”
