Wine Blog



Our Autumn Wine Festival is back with a sparkling new look! Refresh yourself with a full-bodied 25% discount on over 100 selected individual bottles of wine, with an extra 5% discount applied to purchases of six bottles or more (applied after any other discounts). The offer is available 04.09.17 – 01.10.17.

And in even better news, we’ve just won Decanter’s Supermarket of the Year 2017 at their Retailer Awards:

Decanter is the wine industry’s go to publication for wine enthusiasts, connoisseurs and wine trade professionals, and the awards are judged by five experts, including Fiona Beckett, Guardian wine writer, and Matt Walls, Master of Wine.

Booths beat stiff competition including Waitrose and Marks and Spencer to win the award, and were in esteemed company amongst other winners including Berry Bros and Rudd and The Wine Society.

We’ve focused our attention on helping you to discover a little something different for your wine cellar this Autumn. As well as 25% off your favourites, our wine buyer Victoria has found some corking recommendations for you to try, whether your usual tipple is a rich and oaky white, or a ripe and fruity red – all included in the offer. Look out for our ‘Discover Something Different’ displays in store, designed to help you find your next favourite.

IMG_5958.JPGEveryone has their go-to bottle; a trusty, dependable wine they can rely on for flavour and satisfaction. Our Wine Festival is about introducing customers to their next undiscovered favourite – whether you’re confident or cautious when it comes to wine, we want you to take advantage of the great savings on offer during the Wine Festival and venture out of your comfort zone.

We are highlighting some alternative choices with tasting notes and information on the wines in store and also have a selection of these wines available to taste throughout the eventenabling customers to make an informed decision if they are feeling adventurous. My recommendations include a fabulous Etna Rosso from the volcanic soils of Sicily, made from two little known indigenous grape varieties, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, which is elegant and full of perfumed red fruit.

Another favourite is Camel Valley’s Pinot Noir Rosé, a stunning example of how great English sparkling wine can be. The grapes are grown on sun-drenched slopes near the Camel River in Cornwall by family-owned, multi-award winning producer Camel Valley. I also highly recommend the Picpoul de Pinot Baron de Badassière, which is a lip-smacking white and the perfect bottle for bidding farewell to our English summer.
