April was a busy Tasting month for Bush Vines; we enjoyed providing tutored Tastings on South African Wines to both Portsmouth and Chichester Wine Societies and an “Off the Beaten Track Spain” Tasting for the Portsmouth Hispanic Society, and in June we gave a “Tour of Spain” Tasting to Emsworth Sailing Club. If you are interested in a Tasting for a Group – please get in touch.
A Case of wine specially chosen can make a special present. If you are looking for a “bespoke” Case for a loved one (with Tasting Notes) for a special occasion, just drop us an email or phone 01243 378618 for a chat. We are always happy to offer advice about wines.
We are all about sustainably produced wines, the majority of our wines are either certified organic (or they use organic practices) and some are also biodynamic like Dominio de Punctum wines. We may be biased but we find they are delicious wines and also kinder to your “system” than the more mass produced wines. They are also excellent value.
At this time of year our taste-buds are on the change towards fresher wines – crisp, dry whites, dry, blush rosés and lighter reds. Whatever your interests, we believe we have a great selection of exciting wines, so why not surprise your guests with your new wine discoveries! (in a nice way, of course). You will find wines from Spain, England, South Africa, Portugal and New Zealand at Bush Vines.
Discovering new wines & ordering
Please browse our On-line Wine Shop and Case Offers. As well as keeping our prices extremely competitive, occasionally we are able to obtain parcels of wine at a lower price and will pass these benefits onto our customers as a “sale” price.
We were pleased to see three of our wines feature in Decanter Outstanding and Highly Recommended wines – read the excellent reviews + if you are curious about the difference between organic and biodynamic wines – find out more about Punctum Biodynamic Family Vineyards.
We also have 12 different Case Offers which come complete with Tasting Notes; starting at £45 they include a NEW Cases of IBERIAN DISCOVERIES: RAVISHING ROSÉS: DOMINIO DE PUNCTUM BIODYNAMICS and more.
Our CASE OFFERS have sold really well throughout the year and have proved to be a popular way of discovering and learning about some new wines.

Find out more about Bush Vines
Bush Vines, specialists in distinctive wines from smaller producers in Spain, England, Portugal, South Africa and New Zealand, is an independent wine merchant covering the South East Hampshire, South Surrey and West Sussex areas.
Why do we limit our selection to just six countries? Because we want to know as much as we can about all our wines and their producers. The variety of grapes, wine styles and quality in Spain alone is amazing and we have concentrated our efforts here on about 40 wines from 25 different bodegas, with a few selections from winemakers in England, South Africa, New Zealand and Portugal to provide the styles of wines and grape varieties that are not at home in Spain.
We source all our wines from small wineries, usually family-owned, that pay attention to detail in the vineyards as well as in the making of the wine. Many are organic, some are bio-dynamic and most apply the principles of minimum intervention i.e. no spraying or added chemicals.
Why Bush Vines (with a “V”)? Because allowing the vine to develop as a single bush, rather than entice it to climb a trellis, is the traditional method of growing grapes in Spain – our main specialist country. Oh, yes, our surname is “Bush” as well!
Be it an every-day or a fine wine, our list contains distinctive wines from both famous and less well-known regions that provide value for money and show true regional character. Several of our wines have won awards, including IWC, IWSC, Decanter and Wines from Spain; you will see these details and Tasting Notes when you click on a wine in the Wine Shop.
Please visit our Wine Shop to discover our range of great value, quality wines. We aim to offer the keenest prices, consistently throughout the year. We do have Case Offers and occasionally we may offer a few wines at a discount, usually to clear stock to make room for new vintages.
If you have any queries or are seeking advice about wine, please email or call us on 01243 378618. Join our email list to receive news, views and invitations to our Tastings.
