Really nice place for wine tasting, the couple who run it know everything about wine and are keen to impart their knowledge but in an interesting way. The wine was served with cheese and biscuits.

Love this place taught me an awful lot about it with no wine snobbery involved. Recommended it to loads of people who are now regulars

This is fun, they have a wine menu serving 25 or 50ml tasting glasses of wine and flights of sherry. Nearly everyone who tastes Rubis - a chocolate red wine - buys a bottle. In 30 mins to an hour you have tastings and the expertise of the owners (Sam & Charlie?) who really know their wines

Visited Vino Vero for one of their wine-tasting evenings. The evening's tastings were Australian. You were given 3 whites and 3 reds to sample along with a bonus 7th! I bought this as a birthday present for my hubby who absolutely loved it. You also get a cheese platter with your tastings. The owners are extremely knowledgeable and make you... More

We stumbled across Vino Vero on an afternoon stroll in the sun, the shop looked really interesting so we popped in for a look. We were greeted by Sam who was very friendly and explained how the shop worked - explaining the wine tasting options and what they currently had on offer. We promised to return later in the day...

We casually popped in one evening to try some new wines. We were seated and talked to by Sam. He provided a fantastic insight into a wide variety of wine to someone who likes to ask copious amounts of questions. Himself, the wine and cheese combination ensured that we returned for a wine tasting evening a few weeks later. The... More

My partner and I visited last month (May 15) for a full wine tasting evening. It was the first time we had been to an organised tasting and we really enjoyed it. There was a relaxed atmosphere, the hosts were approachable and had extensive knowledge about all the wines. I would highly recommend the wine tasting and also not just... More

Visited for their full wine tasting and got a cheese board and olives. Really enjoyed it, the wine tasting is good value especially considering you get their extensive knowledge if you want to ask any questions! The staff were so friendly and helpful as well. Can't wait to go back!

As I know very little about wine it's great to find a shop where not only are the staff extremely knowledgeable and helpful, but also completely down-to-earth and unpretentious. Their genuine enthusiasm for good wine shows through. I've had some delicious wines from here without breaking the bank, and they've even organised delivery for family and friends further afield.
