As the first month of 2015 draws to close (already!) we’ll be opening the doors of the registered office of Amber Valley Wines for a pop-up shop event in conjunction with out sister website The English Wine Shop.

We’ve been running a January Sale on the site for English Wine all month and with the stock that is left  – we’ll be selling in a traditional retail shop style, so no delivery costs etc.  Just come along browse the wines and buy as you fancy.  Most of the wines will be discounted by the 15% January Sale amount so it’ll be well worth a visit.

SATURDAY 31st JANUARY – The address is 51 Brook Street, Heage, BELPER, Derbyshire, DE56 2AG – we’ll be open just for 2 hours 1pm – 3pm.  More info available CLICK HERE

As for the vineyard and the works – we’re trying to hold off on our pruning as late as we can so we can try & avoid any frosts on the newly pruned canes.

We’re just over a month away from heading into the lab to taste test and make alterations to the base wine – of our very first vintage – which is just too exciting!

We have also started initial plans on a very exciting project for 2015 which could reach out nationwide – if you’re in a position to consider corporate sponsorship, then please drop us a line at the following email address and we’ll be in touch with more information about the event & whats on offer, perhaps you’re the boss of a major international company in Derbyshire or a supportive local business – this really is a great opportunity.

Email Duncan for details :

We’re just finalising the dates for the public tours & tastings and we’ll have more info on those ASAP watch this space we expect them to start around May this year.

That’s it for now but if you want some hints on the wines to buy this Saturday – I strongly recommend the following :

Bolney Pinot Gris

Bolney Cuvee Rose

Three Choirs English House Medium / Dry

Bolney Rose

Great wines but there all good to be honest.


Duncan & Barry
