English Tourism Week

English Tourism Week 25th March - 2nd April is a campaign organised by VisitBritain which is an annual celebration of English tourism and gives us the opportunity to highlight the value of tourism in our City, and a great platform to kick start the Summer Season.

As the oldest Independent wine retailer in the city and huge enjoyers of Brighton and Hove and all it has to offer, we will be highlighting the english wine producers in and around Sussex and Kent throughout the week.

In both Butlers shops we will be offering 10% off all English wines bought throughout the week. We will open various bottles throughout the week for customers to taste, starting with Breaky Bottom Francine 2007 on Tuesday 28th March in our Kemp Town shop.

We would also like to take this opportunity to highlight and highly recommend some of our stockists around the city who will all have English wines and spirits on their wine lists ready and waiting for you to order and enjoy!

Fourth & Church will have one our favourite producers, Gusbourne, available by the glass and bottle throughout the week.

They will also have Plumpton's new release First Contact by the glass, a skin contact wine made at the college with an excellent label. Hoffman & Rathbone 2010 is also on the current wine list.
