Tivoli Wines was established in 2010 and purchased by David and Helen Dodd in 2016 – who immediately went to work expanding the range to over 450 wines, spirits and craft beers, whilst placing a strong focus on ‘experience’ retailing. The shop is a treasure-trove of fantastic quality and great-value wine sourced from traditional French regions through to emerging countries such as Japan - with prices from £8.99 to £349.99 there’s something for everyone and every budget.
However, the real gem is upstairs where The Wine Library is found. Launched in early 2018, with the aim of creating an inviting space for customers to explore and discover new wines, the new owners created an innovative wine lounge for upto 35 people.
Using Enomatic© wine dispensing machines, which dispense wine in three sample sizes, customers can try over 30 wines whilst relaxing on chesterfield sofas or at the communal high tables. Customers can pop upstairs to sample a few wines to aid their purchasing decisions or stay a while longer and share a few glasses with friends. To compliment the wines, cheese and charcuterie platters sourced from local catering partners can be pre-ordered for your own cheese & wine tasting experience. Tables can be booked in advance or the entire room can be hired for a bespoke wine, spirit or cocktail tasting experience with one of Tivoli Wines WSET-trained educators. The Wine Library is open from 2pm to 9pm on Wednesdays to Saturdays with tables booked through email@example.com or contacting the team on 01242 269886.
Over the past 18 months, Tivoli Wines have also built a strong reputation for their value-focused approach to events, hosting over 50 events per year in a variety of formats; including an 8-week “Grape School” wine course, Fine Wine or “Meet The Maker” events and their hugely popular ‘Mini-Festival’ tastings held on the last Friday of each month. Their approach to wine education was recognised by Decanter Magazine in 2018 with a nomination for “Best Regional Wine Merchant” with the team taking away the “Best Newcomer” award.
