Wine lovers will be spoilt for choice when visiting Tivoli Wines, with the Cheltenham business now offering a Wine Library where enthusiasts and novices alike can taste a variety of different tipples.
The independent retailer, which has been owned by David and Helen Dodd since 2016, wanted to invite customers to explore the world of wine after becoming increasingly frustrated with supermarkets dominating the UK retail sector.
Visitors will be able to sample 32 varieties from Enomatic tasting machines, a state-of-the-art wine dispensing and preservation system being used for the first time in Gloucestershire, along with an additional number of fine wines available by Coravin, which allows you to pour wine without pulling the cork.
The tasting room, which features wine-themed décor designed by Monica Lenore Designs, will offer the chance to try a variety of different wines from the tasting machines using a top-up card, with sample sizes of 25ml, 75ml and 125ml available, while prices will vary from £1 to £80.
David said: ‘We will be providing samples from some of the most iconic wine producers in the world, which typically retail at £300 to £500 per bottle. Very few are able to spend that much on a single bottle but we want to make these wines more accessible to the public so we’ll be providing 50ml samples starting at just £20.’
The Wine Library is open from 1pm to 9pm from Tuesday to Saturday, while the business plans to launch its Grape School in 2018 which will host fortnightly educational events.
