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 always have 24 wines on taste via our Enomatic tasting machines - just pop in, ask for a sampling card, and our staff will be on hand to assist.
Here's a peak of what's currently on taste:
Gruner Veltliner Keltenwein
Bott Geyl Gewurztraminer

The restoration and refitting of a listed barn for use as a wine shop is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
Welcome to Taurus Wines
BREAKING NEWS: We are delighted to have been voted (by our fellow industry professionals) as no.10 in the Harper's 50 Best Indies awards. To put it into perspective, there are now 913 independent wine merchants in the UK, all of whom were in the running for these awards, so we're incredibly proud of our team here for getting us so close to the top spot!
We are delighted to be a finalist in the first Waverley Business In Growth Awards. Even though it's a very rural part of Surrey, Waverley still has over 8000 businesses within it, so to be in the top 12 is something of which we are very proud.
We have been shortlisted in the Decanter Retailer Awards as one of the top 13 independent regional merchants - vying for Regional Wine Shop Of The Year. Fingers crossed for the top spot, but we're honoured to be in such esteemed company and proud to even be shortlisted.
Last month we were honoured to be awarded a special commendation from The Drinks Business in the category of Independent Retailer of the Year. The judges were impressed by our 'destination wine shop' - so why not visit us and come and see why!
We won... Best Wine Merchant In Surrey! Thank you all so much for voting for us - we're chuffed to bits to be announced as Surrey's favourite wine merchant. It's a real honour - and is especially meaningful as it's voted for by you.
We are an independent, award-winning wine merchant and importer near Bramley in the Surrey Hills. We specialise in parties, weddings and celebrations, as well as having an extensive range of fine wines and spirits, all nestled on the shelves of our beautifully renovated barn.
Call us on 01483 54 84 84 or come and see us - we're open from 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 6pm on Saturday.
