He’ll be deciding upon wonderful drops from established vineyards as nicely as emerging winemakers, with wines coming from all close to the earth but with a target on European producers. And Blaize will with any luck , be on standby to advise what wine to buy for your night food – the dream! (We asked him to help with that during lockdown and the success ended up extraordinary.)
Bottles N Jars will also be stocking posh cupboard items and day-to-day deli staples – plus new bread shipped daily by a nearby bakery and coffees to takeaway from roasters Notes. And then there’s the cheese: excitingly that is getting supplied by Holly Chaves of Wine & Rind fame.
