Welcome to the Jolly Vintner Too Wine Shop. I am an independent wine merchant (the only one doing what I do in Bournemouth) and have been involved with the wine trade for over thirty five years. Within this time I won a scholarship through the Wine and Spirit Education Trust exam system to spend three weeks in the vineyards and wineries of Germany in 1980. I gained my Diploma in Wines and Spirits in 1982. I also owned a restaurant for three and a half years in the mid 1990s in London. I retured to my first love ­wine­ by opening the Jolly Vintner Too Wine Shop in Bournemouth, May of 2006.

I currently stock approxiamately 500 wines from aroud the world with everything from everyday drinking to unusual, rare and fine wines for those special occasions. I have tasted or drunk everything that I sell so I can personnally recommend wines, spirits or liqueuers to cater for all your needs. To do this I probably taste upwards of 1000 wines each year and regularly introduce 50­ or 60 new wines each year to freshen up my range and provide regular customers with something different to try. Alongside the range of wines I have over 70 Malt Whiskies (many available to taste), 60 liqueuers, rums, cognacs, armagnacs, gins and other interesting spirits.
