A refreshingly different drinks supplier


We can't think of a better way to celebrate English Wine Week this June (19th - 27th) than introducing you to the deliciously British Severn Valley wines. Named after the rural heart of mid-western England, Severn Valley uses the trusted combination of tradition and science to bring the best out of Britain!

English Wine Week

The aim of the event is to inspire more people to get to know wonderful English wines better, and help them buy from local vineyards. English wine week is a chance to connect vineyards, retail outlets, influencers and of course all wine lovers across the country, to celebrate and promote English wines. Join the celebration!

There are so many reasons why now is the time to invest in English wine! Doing so supports local producers which is great in itself, and provenance is something consumers are really taking into consideration. Customers are also interested in discovering more about English wine development which although not as big as in other parts of the world, none the less fascinating to watch grow year on year, and start to see those medals come in! Even though English wines might cost more, they do offer bars a chance to offer a premium home grown product which is that little bit different, and often a new experience for the wine drinker, so a perfect fit for those post lockdown celebrations!

So take advantage of the consumer awareness English Wine Week will hopefully bring. To get you started take a look at Severn Valley...

Raise your glass to Severn Valley

With the finest estate-grown fruit, Severn Valley transforms the carefully grown weather-hardy grapes (Bacchus, Huxelrebe, Madeleine Angevine, Regent, and Rondo) as well as the classic varieties (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) into a breath-taking range of English still and sparkling wines.

Severn Valley wines are fresh yet fruity! And let's not forget vegan and gluten-free!

Don't forget that this June, Severn Valley wines are on offer: buy five bottles of red, rosé or white wine and get one bottle of the same type, free.

The Halfpenny Story
It was the vision of Martin Vickers 30 years ago to plant a vineyard that would one day match continental vineries. The first ½ acre was planted in 1983 by Martin himself who still runs the vineyard today with his family. By 1991 a further 22 acres were added and today the vineyard totals almost 30 acres, making it one of the largest in the UK.

Halfpenny Green Wine Estate is situated 250ft above sea level in well-sheltered south-facing slopes, with light, sandy free-draining soil. The winery, built-in 2005, has become the toast of Staffordshire - winning numerous regional, national, and international awards in the process.

The Wines

Pinot Noir, Regent & Rondo:

Lively red fruit and red apple aromas with a hint of pepper. Its fruity sweetness and silky structure complement its cherry-style flavours. The wine is lighter in its style and body - perfect for easy drinking yet with a finish powerful enough to complement red meats, game, and strong cheese. Try it here.

Madeleine Angevine & Huxelrebe:

Medium dry, aromatic, and fresh. Hints of pear drops and orange zest drive through on the nose. Caramel notes and limes are present on the palate with a crisp, clean finish. Matches fish and light style chicken dishes perfectly.
Try it here.

Rondo, Dornfelder & Pinot Noir:

Medium dry rosé with soft summer fruit berry aromas on the nose with mild green tea notes. Upon tasting, the wine shows off a refreshing balance of light fruit (strawberries and limes) and sweetness with great length. To be enjoyed chilled, on its own or with white meat or fish. Try it here.
