Tengreenbottles to open outlet

11 June, 2010

Online wine merchant tengreenbottles.com will be venturing into bricks-and-mortar retailing when it opens its first shop in the summer.

Co-founder Sam Devaney said a shop and wine bar would open in the centre of Brighton in mid-August.

“A few people are trying a similar format in London but they tend to be a restaurant with wines on the wall,” Devaney said. “We want to hold tastings and talk about interesting wines.” He said the website was a good way to get the name out but “it is never going to have the same impact as fixed premises”.

Devaney said the range of wines would cost from £6.99 to £150, with 10 wines being on rotation for sampling.
