Welcome to Stone Vine & Sun

Stone, Vine & Sun Wine Merchants - committed to sourcing superb wines that truly reflect the land they are grown on.

20th October 2020 - update

New arrivals this week - a pile of super red Bordeaux from the great 2015 and 2016 vintages, making perfect drinking in the autumn months: ripe and intense right bank Merlots from Rocher-Gardat and Vieux Chantecaille; from the left, the robust Haut Bellevue Moulis and classic Medoc Cru Bourgeois Les Anguilleys.

Whilst the latest restrictions throw a pall over any exciting get-togethers, dinners, events (and forget tastings), there is still life in the former chicken shed in Twyford. We are sending wine out nationally via APC and are delivering locally ourselves. Local customers may have to wait a little longer as we can't be everywhere at once, but we are dispatching national online orders asfast as they arrive, so most deliveries outside our region should arrive in 2-4 working days. We have taken two measures to encourage orders: we have reduced the free delivery threshold to £100 nationally (barring Highlands and Islands); and all wines in our stock have a 10% discount
if ordered by the unsplit dozen.

Thanks very much to all of our customers who supported our #DrinkSouthAfrican offer in August.  We had an outstanding response, with many people stating they wished to help South African producers. As a result we placed orders for 3,600 bottles of Cape wine five weeks ago and have already paid for the lot, so your money has immediately been recycled back into the local economy. Secondly our work in sourcing from South Africa and promoting the country's wines has been rewarded by SVS being named as runner up for South Africa Specialist Merchant in Decanter magazine's 2020 retailer awards.

Our shop in Twyford is still firmly closed apart from collections - we hope you will respect the reason for this. We would love to welcome customers into the shop again, but can't take the risk. If any customer comes into the shop and later tests positive then because of the track and trace rules we would probably have to close for a fortnight - and that would be catastrophic. We are offering collections at the shop between 10 and 5 during week days. If you wish to collect please say so in the delivery instructions box - and when you plan to come. Please don't come without pre-ordering; we must take payment details for telephone orders; and please don't ask to come in. You order will be in marked boxes on a table just inside our door.

Please note that due to the closure of the shop and short-staffing the office telephones will not be manned on Saturdays. If you would like to order either leave a message or email us at sales@stonevine.co.uk

Finally, thanks for all the orders we have received over the last six months - it's great to have your support,

Simon Taylor
