Cir­cle mem­bers are given a taste of things to come at wine mer­chants

Gloucestershire Echo - - BUSINESS -

» TIVOLI Wines owner David Dodd ex­plained why he doesn’t sell Prosecco – but he does rec­om­mend Cava – to Cir­cle to Suc­cess mem­bers at their re­cent Get Con­nected event.

Hosted in the shop’s Wine Li­brary tast­ing room, in An­dover Road, Chel­tenham, David of­fered a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into the wine trade.

He re­vealed why cer­tain brands cost more, his plans for the fu­ture and how in­de­pen­dent wine mer­chants can buck na­tional high street trends to reach more cus­tomers – with em­pha­sis on the rise of English pro­duc­ers.

The event, co-hosted by Cir­cle to Suc­cess and Reach plc, pub­lish­ers of the Echo and Cit­i­zen news­pa­pers and Glouces­ter­shire live, saw guests sam­ple 32 wines on of­fer in the Wine Li­brary’s state-of-the-art Eno­matic tast­ing ma­chines. David said he wel­comes all shop­pers to visit the Wine Li­brary be­fore mak­ing a pur­chase. The venue is also used for events and cour­ses and dis­counts are avail­able on Satur­days from 2pm.

Tivoli Wines’ Christ­mas Wine Fes­ti­val will be held at the Pittville Pump Room on Fri­day, Novem­ber 29. For more in­for­ma­tion about the fes­ti­val and all Tivoli ex­pe­ri­ences, visit tivoli­
