Award winning wines at competitive prices
Bush Vines, specialists in distinctive wines from small producers in Spain, New Zealand, South Africa and England, is an independent wine merchant covering the South East Hampshire, South Surrey and West Sussex areas.
Why do we limit our selection to just four 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 New Zealand, South Africa and England to provide the styles of wine that the warmer climate of Spain cannot produce.
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. Some are organic 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.
