Haywood Wines is owned and run by sisters Philippa and Suzy. They have a long association with Southbourne, having been brought up on the Grove and attended the local junior school. They were delighted to return and open their wine shop in July 2015, after a long hunt for the right premises.
Philippa joined the wine trade in 1990 and holds the highly regarded Wine & Spirit Education Trust Diploma. Her knowledge and passion for the subject is fast becoming legendary in the shop and customers enjoy learning and hearing all about her stories and tales of life as a Wine Merchant.
From the outset, the shop’s philosophy has been to source and supply excellent wines that are honestly priced and of quality. Philippa has (in a professional capacity of course!), tasted all the wines in stock over the years, and through her network of Agencies and Suppliers achieves the best prices – she is well known and highly respected. She has one rule though….to enjoy!
The range of wines in the shop is ever changing and expanding. New wines arrive most weeks, with prices starting at £6.99 right though to a mouthwatering £180. There really is something for everyone.
The shop also stocks a range of unusual spirits, and can usually find that rare bottle you just haven’t been able to get anywhere else – just pop in and ask.
Local producers are represented – the very successful and delicious Dorset Dry Gin from Conker Spirits is a popular choice, along with Pothecary Gin, Southbourne Ales, Purbeck Cider and beers from Flack Manor.
Haywood Wines looks forward to welcoming you – come and experience and explore this lovely shop.
