We are thrilled to announce that refills are now available at our W3 store. We’ve spent months looking at different ways to do this in a way that fitted in with the look and feel of the shop.
We also wanted to offer a great wine that we really loved and where we could offer a real saving both in terms of money and glass.
So how about a white Burgundy from small plots in the Mâconnais at £11.95 instead of £18 (which would be its typical price in the UK)?
Sound good? Want to know more?
Q: What are refills?
A: You can bring your own clean 75cl bottle, or we can let you have one for a £2.50 deposit.
Q: What are the benefits?
A: Better Burgundy for less money, using only 20% of the carbon footprint of a normal bottle of wine.
Q. What makes the wine so good?
A: Le Grappin Wines are made by Andrew Nielsen, an Australian who has worked for stellar Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producers throughout the world. He seeks out small parcels of vines in overlooked areas of Burgundy, and works by hand throughout the winemaking process.
Q. How long do they last – when should we drink them?
A: On the day of purchase, ideally, as some oxygen will get into the bottle during filling. But they’ll be fine the day after too. We walked around with a bottle for several hours in the blazing heat. It still felt fresh, succulent and juicy when we popped it in the fridge and drank it later that night.
We think that Blanc du Grappin is about to become your favourite wine of the summer. But don’t take our word for it, try a bottle or pop in and try some in store.
Blanc du Grappin is available now in refillable bottles from Park+Bridge in Churchfield Road, Acton, W3.
