The Solent Cellar is a specialist, independent wine merchant for the New Forest. To celebrate their 5th Birthday they're offering all New Forest Escape guests 10% off their wines, gins and cigars! All you need to do is order online, contact the team for your discount code and your wines will be at your door, ready and waiting, when you arrive.
Their shop dates back to the 17th Century but they have a much more modern approach to selling wine. Their online shop is well worth a look but you can still drop in for a relaxed and informal taste.
They stock wines from all over the world and take great care in hand selecting each one with a focus on small, quality driven producers.
The Cellar is run by the lovely Simon and Heather. Simon has a serious passion for good wine and over ten years of experience in the wine trade. He has travelled and worked in many of the Worlds leading wine regions and has a keen eye (and nose!) for searching out quality wines.
Heather also began her career in the wine trade before pursuing her passion for cooking by training as a chef at the renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland. It was here where she became committed to the philosophy of only using the freshest and finest ingredients. Since then she has gone on to work for Masterchef winner 2009 Mat Follas, and has enjoyed a brief stage with Michel Roux Jnr at Le Gavroche!
Heathers expertise means Solent Cellar can also offer a catering service or excellent food and wine matching advice so drop in and see them with any questions.
