Tasting this Thursday! Limited spaces available for an intimate tutored tasting with Rachel from Domaine Treloar

We’re very pleased to have Rachel from Domaine Treloar with us on Thursday for an intimate tutored tasting of their highly-regarded wines (regarded by Jancis Robinson MW, Britain’s most respected wine critic, as the best in the Roussillon). The tasting will take place on our central table, so spaces are very limited - please get in touch quickly to reserve a place!

The story of Domaine Treloar is a fascinating one: the couple were living and working within 500m of the Twin Towers on September 11 2001, and witnessing that event made them rethink their lives, leading, by way of wine studies in New Zealand and at Plumpton College, to the purchase of a 10 hectare estate around the Catalan village of Trouillas in Roussillon. Jonathan and Rachel do all the work in the vineyard and winery themselves, so it will be a great opportunity to learn about these exciting wines from the winemaker.

We’ll be tasting through six wines: two whites, three reds and a fortified Muscat. Discounts will be available if you’d like to purchase any of the wines on the day.

Tickets are £10 per person, please email shop@tengreenbottles.com or call 01273 567176 for tickets.

Wine refills at Ten Green Bottles

We’re pleased to announce that we’re now offering wine refills here at Ten Green Bottles. This eco-friendly alternative to buying by the bottle reaps many rewards: for the planet (packaging and shipping combined often account for more than 40% of the total carbon footprint on a bottle of wine, not to mention landfill/energy needed to recycle); and for your pocket - when you buy refills, more of the money you’re spending goes on the quality of the wine itself, and much less on packaging and shipping costs, so you can get good quality wine for a lot less.

We’ve decided to offer our refills in 500ml bottles, as it’s a nice size to have to hand without having to worry about getting through a whole bottle, and means we can offer a decent amount of wine for a very reasonable price. Plus, it will be nice to see your faces more regularly! We’ll be introducing a loyalty scheme soon too, so do remember to give us your name when you purchase a refill, so we can keep track!

We’ve persuaded our friends at Domaine de la Paleine, in the Loire Valley, to send over some of their wine in refillable format, meaning we have a white Chenin Blanc and a red Cabernet Franc, both organic and biodynamic, currently available as refills. These wines have always proved popular with our customers, and I imagine this will continue as we’re now offering them at a snip of the price!

Our refillable bottles cost £2.50 to buy and can be reused as many times as you want, thereafter refills of the Paleine white and red are only £5!

Why not pop by and try it out?

Sunday Aug 31st, 4pm. Argentina tasting: along the Andes

Most of us are familiar with the quality of wine coming out of Argentina these days, but much of it on shop shelves is from one area, Mendoza.

Alistair from Las Bodegas, who ran a great Argentina tasting for us last year, is going to go a little more in-depth this time round and show us a range of wines from the very north to the south of the winegrowing area of the Andes mountains, not to leave out Mendoza of course, as we’ll include a comparison of four Malbecs from different Mendoza sub-zones.

As usual, there’ll be a discount for wines from the tasting purchased at the event.

Hope to see you all at the tasting!

Now fully booked!
Here at Ten Green Bottles we have always had a vision. That vision was to provide excellent, interesting and artisan wines at accessible prices. Over the years we have evolved, starting with only independently sourced wine from Italy, France, Germany, Spain and England, we have now (with the help from innovative suppliers and friends) managed to place within the shop bizarre and wonderful wines from as far as Chile and New Zealand.
We are constantly looking for wines to change peoples perceptions and wines we love to drink ourselves, we strive to provide; traditional, cult, vegan, biodynamic and natural wines as part of our stock, along with the best quality wines we can find worldwide. 

We also trust your opinions, if you want something, let us know! We always like to hear about new wines, plus we can’t really stop talking about wine…

Next time you are in ask us about some of our most interesting stock, or if you fancy we can even provide a box of 6 with a 5% discount.

After months of asking, we finally have back in stock the much loved Traviata from the fantastic Domaine de la Paleine in Saumur. 
Fully embracing of vintage variation (each vintage is vinified in order to showcase the best of what the year has to offer, followed by naming it after a classic opera), this one off Chenin-Blanc has become a Ten Green Bottles classic. Full of honey-dew melon and grapefruit, this off-dry vintage is incredibly well balanced and one we wish we could keep drinking for a while to come.


However, having checked with the winery they are down to the last of this stock, so sadly this may be the last bite of the cherry for this wine. 


This bottle is selling at £14 (a bargain surely!) and we have it in stock now!


For those of you who are fans of drier Chenin-Blanc we do have in stock the following vintage ‘Toccata’, at the same price, in which the year called for a much drier style.

Next tasting: Sunday July 13th, 4pm. Italian wine with Passione Vino

Now sold out!

Our next tasting has just been confirmed - and it’s not that far off! We’re pleased to have Luca Dusi from Passione Vino coming to talk to us on the 13th July, focusing on some of the less well-known aspects of Italian wine.

Luca has specialised in importing wines from small, exceptional producers in Italy to the UK for nearly ten years. We were hugely impressed when we first tasted his wines and since then - from having our preconceptions about Lambrusco turned upside down, to tasting wine made from vines that have classical music played to them all year round - we have been equally impressed every time since.

And - quality of the wine aside - Luca is certainly a passionate and entertaining speaker. We look forward to hosting him here at Ten Green Bottles, and to discovering another side of Italian wine!

Tickets: SOLD OUT

Some photos from the relaunch of Two Kats and a Cow art gallery that we sponsored recently. A wine tasting there coming soon!

Come along on your own, as a pair, or as a few of you, and join a group of like-minded wine lovers for a session hosted by one of our qualified members of staff, learn a little about the basics of wine and tasting, and discuss and sample a selection of six our wines.

Drink good wine, meet new people, go home ‘enlightened’.
