Caviste Independent Wine Merchant
Welcome to the world of Caviste! We are a wine merchant based in North Hampshire with two shops, both close to crystal clear chalk streams for which our county is famed. Our original home is in Overton, source of the River Test, where we share our wine shop with Honesty coffee shop. While our Newlyns Wine & Gin Emporium sits alongside a farmshop on the upper reaches of the River Whitewater close to Odiham and just one minute from Junction 5 of the M3.
Caviste is a French word that is best translated as ‘small wine merchant’, and can describe both the person and the place. We are all (including our driver and financial controller) passionate about wine and food – as well as a range of gins, whisky, local and continental beers. We do get quite excited when customers show an interest in our world of flavour. Both our shops demonstrate the variety of grapes, wine regions, styles and countries that we have on offer. Hence our slogan ‘The Adventure of Wine’.
Do click on our events page and consider joining us for tastings and suppers – or even our Annual Oyster & Fine Wine Evening on 27th September in Overton which has become one of our star events.
We look forward to meeting you either through the website or when you visit either of our shops, perhaps even at our Overton Friday night wine bar the highlight of every week for both us and our local customers.
