Finzels Reach will welcome Le Vignoble wine lounge and shop to the quarter this autumn.
French for ‘the vineyard,’ Le Vignoble will be offering up to 64 wines in what it describes as ‘wine heaven’ in the atmospheric surroundings of the restored heritage brewery.
The changing monthly selection of wines will be available from innovative self-service Enomatic dispensers that keep the wine at the perfect temperature. Le Vignoble enables customers to sample wines from all over the world in a relaxing and sophisticated bistro-style ambience.
Le Vignoble founder Yannick Loué is on a mission to take the snobbery out of the wine tasting tradition and help everyone to sample new wines and flavours. Every wine comes with tasting notes and all staff are highly trained experts able to guide novices towards new grapes, regions and varieties.
Wine is sold in tasting 25cl glasses, medium or large glass and customers can either pre-pay for their wines on a free membership card or pay at the end of their evening. Members can also preview new wines and have priority booking for the many events that Le Vignoble hosts including pop up guest restaurants and meet the winemaker evenings.
An authentic French tapas-style food has been created to perfectly compliment the wine. The menu includes meat and cheese platters, much of it imported direct from Paris, alongside several traditional hot dishes. There are also craft beers and ciders all sourced from the South West.
Le Vignoble will be based on the ground floor of the historic Fermentation Buildings which have been home to several famous breweries over the years. The interior will be decorated in keeping with the stunning industrial location with reclaimed wood tables, vintage lighting and aged leather Chesterfield sofas creating a relaxed and informal environment to enjoy the wine and food.
