Top Tip

Never underestimate the draw of an own-label wine, especially if the label is quirky or amusing. Display it near the till and it provides an excellent conversation opener for your customers. Our own-label bears the name of our park and highlights that this is Last of the Summer Wine country.

We buy a variety of back-label only French wines from Booker which are really affordable and also enjoyable. Our customers tend to buy them not only as original souvenirs and gifts, but also as a regular everyday wine to drink.

In case anyone thinks we are being deceivingly unpatriotic, another of our best-sellers is a locally produced range of fruit wines from Splash Winery.

Hazel Peaker, Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park, Thongsbridge, West Yorkshire
