Caviste Independent Wine Merchant
Welcome to the web pages of Caviste where you will see our wines, read some stories, find out a little about our small but energetic team who run the show. We are a Hampshire Wine Merchant with two shops, one in the rather charming High Street of Overton where the River Test rises through the chalk and flows south into the Solent. The other sits alongside the large enterprising Newlyns Farm Shop at North Warnborough by Junction 5 of the M3, alongside the River Whitewater which also rises a mile upstream through the Hampshire chalk, but flows north toward the Thames. Being independent means we have the freedom to buy and sell the wines, gins, whiskies and beers that excite and interest us. Generally speaking we all love our wines and the wider range of bottles that we sell. We also love our food and appreciate the joys of drinking new bottles with both traditional and new dishes.
After six months of this whole pandemic business – despite all the many cancelled weddings and 21st and other parties – we have realised that one of the greatest pleasures is sitting down with small groups of family and friends and enjoying home cooking and amazing bottles of wine. We believe we do the latter bit very well indeed.
Both shops are very much open for business but we also send wine throughout the UK to appreciative customers or as gifts to lighten up people’s restricted lives (minimum value only £75 for free delivery). Do please also visit our Events page where you will see our Zoom tasting events that have been so much part of our customer engagement the past six months and will entertain us further in the weeks leading into Christmas.
Yes Christmas is unlikely to be crowded or as noisy as previous years, but we can still enjoy some amazing bottles to enjoy alongside some wonderful winter food with those whose company we value.
We look forward to keeping touch. Thank you for visiting our website - and if you can, pop into one of our shops! We would love to meet you.
