Bat and Bottle Wine Merchants


JUST HOW GOOD A WINE SHOP ARE WE?
We are incredibly proud to be the first ever recipient of the London Wine Fair "Wine Buyers Award" for UK Online Specialist Wine Buyer.
We sell directly to the public from our warehouse.
We are specialist importers of Italian wine, based on Oakham Enterprise Park, out on Ashwell Road (on the old Ashwell Prison site).
Founded in Uppingham in 1994, we buy directly from the wine cellar, mostly from small artisan producers.
We are truly online wine merchants, known for our excellent customer service; we deliver wine nationwide,

NO MINIMUM ORDER

LOCAL COVID-19 STATUS:
Please use our website and 'Pickup' service for 'Click and Collect' orders.

We have Schott Crystal Glassware should you want your tables to have that extra special touch (pick up clean, return dirty service).

CORPORATE WINE:
We recommend and deliver wine (and wine tastings) for your business, whether it is for corporate dining, corporate gifts, hospitality, or entertainment.

RESTAURANTS:
Our wines are available at a few discerning restaurants around the UK; all known for having remarkably interesting, normally award-winning wine lists.

JOIN OUR WINE CLUB:
We have been importing Italian wine directly from small producers since 1998, so the normal hyperbole of boutique wineries, small production, limited availability and exclusivity is in fact all entirely true; our youth may have been exchanged for experience and back pain, but our focus remains resolutely ‘artisan’.
The Bat and Bottle Wine Club was shortlisted as the 'other' finalist by the IWC (International Wine Challenge) for UK Wine Club of the Year.

OAKHAM SHOP
Please do come and visit us at our warehouse - if we are working there, we are open as a shop.
However, we are a micro-business (small but mighty - truly multum in parvo!) so we strongly recommend you check our diary on our website; or call us first to avoid disappointment, just in case we are working away: 01572 759735 or 0780 9828662 or, email: [email protected]

We hope to see you soon. Cin Cin.
