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 the 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 the Honesty coffee shop. Out other store is the Newlyns Wine & Gin Emporium which 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 get pretty excited when customers show an interest in our world of flavour. Both Caviste shops demonstrate the variety of grapes, wine regions, styles and countries that we have on offer. Hence our slogan ‘The Adventure of Wine’. Though we must not forget our ever expanding range of craft gins, which excites both ourselves and our customers.
As we look forward to the year ahead, we shall continue to celebrate the world of great wine and good food, whether modest or elaborate. Starting with our Italian Fine Wine Supper on Thursday 7th February in Overton, there will be a new calendar of events to attend in both locations – and lovely new wines to excite the palate. Stay tuned and Happy New Year!
