Here at Taurus Wines we're lucky enough to be in the beautiful Surrey Hills, a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. But the area is more than just a pretty face. We're a member of the hard-working Surrey Hills Enterprises group, and together with other local producers and suppliers we aim to support our local businesses and promote the Surrey Hills as a national asset. Did you know that some of the best food - and wine - in the country comes from Surrey? Follow the link in the logo to see how many other great businesses work in Surrey, plus ideas on how you can enjoy our beautiful hills and spread the word!
Fancy a spin? Our Spiral Cellar is installed and looking fabulous in the new shop. Come in and see it for yourself - it's a dizzying 2.5m deep and we think the smartest thing around here...
We're still open - even with the snow! If you can cope with the chill, come and see us in our new shop - it's just a few metres from the old one, but a world away in all other respects! (Well, except for the fact it's still us behind the counter!)
Breakfasts will never be the same again! Our favourite Buckshot Original Bloody Mary Mix has just won a Great Taste Award. Why not spice up your cocktail game and try a bottle... just follow the link!
It's here! Direct from Provence overnight - our first batch of rosé of the season. Luckily this year we didn't get a scorpion tagging along for the ride... New wines this year include Rock Angel and Garrus from the top-class Château d'Esclans - enjoy!
We won! We're delighted to announce that we are the winners of the 2016 Muddy Stilettos Awards for Best Wine Shop in Surrey! Thank you to all our customers who voted for us in this prestigious competition.
Amazing news! We are the overall winners in the 2016 'Up Your Game, Up Your Gain!' challenge, sponsored by the Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce and our local councils, Surrey CC and Waverley.
