2014 Price List

Sadly, the Trout Wine Shop closed for the last time on Saturday 25th January 2014.  However, although the shop has gone, the website lives on and I continue to offer an interesting and personal selection of wines for sale.  Since browsing my shelves is no longer an option, I hope to make it easier to browse "virtually" by including photographs.  If you would like to be advised when the new, improved, version of the website is up and running, please email me.

Now that the shop has closed it will still be possible to call and collect wine from The Trout but, as my stock will not be stored here in future, advance warning of a visit is advisable.  Glass hire will still be available for parties, again by prior arrangement.

As before, screw top wines are marked with the initials ST


We are delighted to quote prices for delivery to any part of the UK mainland which, wherever possible, will be on our own vehicles but we cannot guarantee either speed or cheapness!  Please do ask - you may be surprised.  See below for details.

Wine continues to be what this list is all about - wine that has been selected because it is interesting, enjoyable and which, while offering good value for money, is not included because it fits an arbitrarily set 'price point'.  Nearly three quarters of the wines in this list fall between £6 and £12 per bottle because this is where, I believe, the best value is to be found.  These are wines that I am passionate about - I hope you will share that passion.

Please note:  the discounted prices in the main list apply to mixed and unmixed cases.  And if, heaven forbid, you decide that you do not like a wine you have bought from me, I will happily exchange unopened bottles.

  Forge Mill Pinotage 2011  Coastal Region

  Spice Route Pinotage 2009  Swartland 11.20 9.99
  Special occasion wine, perhaps, but what a wine!  Packed with glorious flavours of chocolate and coffee.  Totally different to any other Pinotage - world class!
