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.
