Bottling specialist launches retail store in County Durham

22 April, 2015

Bottling firm Lanchester Group is opening its first off-licence in a former Morgan sports car dealership in County Durham.

The group, run by Tony and Veronica Cleary, bottles for major retailers including Asda and Sainsbury’s and suppliers such as Concha y Toro, and runs a wholesale business serving the on and off-trade.

It is now diversifying into retail and the Clearys’ son Ben is running the new store, which is called the Pip Stop and opens on Saturday, April 25.

He said: “I’m very excited to make my contribution to the development of the family business by adding a strong public-facing retail brand to our portfolio. There’s been a tremendous amount of interest and we’re looking forward to a busy day on Saturday.“

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
