Want a good wine deli in Bristol?

I have two wine deli recommendations based on the overall experience of charm upon visit.

Two Bellys

Two bellys is a great, wine, cheese and meat deli on Whiteladies road. It’s cute and un-pretentious, with lovely, helpful staff and a love for the produce they offer.


Cave is a wine shop and deli on Gloucester road- a great little store- simple and un-pretentious- with great wine selections and friendly staff. Site here.

Wine Tasting in Bristol

This list of wine-tasting in bristol highlight our top 4 spots:

  1. Kask wine (Affordable, vegan)
  2. Cave Bristol (unpretentious, quality, price)
  3. Le Vignoble (personalised, glam)
  4. 22 Clifton (the expert)

Kask Wine

Kask do in-person, online, and at-home tasting kits. In-person they run themed monthly wine and cheese tasting for £35 per person. They also run weekly ‘Pour decisions’ wine nights- a very casual setting and £5 pay-per-glass price, making this a relaxed, un-fussy and sociable. Link here.

Cave Bristol

Wine tastings every other Tuesday around the long table bar, aimed at offering lesser-known wines under the theme for that week. Tickets are around ~£30 for 5 wines and cheese. Link here.

Le Vignoble

More traditional, city wine tasting- with great wine selections. Their approach is to help you find wines you most enjoy- not tell you what you should enjoy! Not snobby, and a really nice company that likes stories behind each of their bottles.

Le Vignoble do about one tasting event per month (see details here) with extra sessions for their wine club members.

22 Clifton Wine Tasting

Monthly wine tastings at around £45 per ticket. Details here.
