Welcome to our new site!

You’ll see that we’ve given our mailings and website a fresh new look. We've decided to update a few features and designs to continue the evolution of Averys and drive us on for the next 200 years.

New look - new wines
Our buyers have been busy travelling the globe looking for new wines and these are just a few of our favourite recent discoveries. If the sunshine has re-ignited your love of rosé, you will be delighted to see two new additions to the range - Portuga Rosé and Urbina Rioja Rosé. Other new wines from Rioja include the flagship range of Bodegas Muriel - triple gold medal-winning Viña Muriel Reserva Rioja 2008, an astonishing £72 off the Marques de Solariego Reserva Rioja 2008 and a new white, Viña Muriel Reserva Rioja Blanco 2010.

Lots to look forward to in the coming months…
It’s not just the new look that has got us excited here at Averys HQ. We have lots of plans to share with you for the rest of the year. Get your diary at the ready and start planning.

• Bristol International Balloon Fiesta - 7th-10th August
Averys is the official wine supplier for the Balloon Fiesta this year and even if you don’t live in the area, it is well worth making a special trip. Now in its 36th year, it is the largest ballooning event in Europe. With over 130 hot air balloons, the world famous red arrows and spectacular fireworks (obviously not all at the same time!), as well as some amazing wines, it is one of the must-see events of the summer. Best of all, it’s FREE!

• Bristol Affordable Arts Fair - 19th-21st September
For the first time, Averys is sponsoring the Affordable Arts Fair at Brunel’s Old Station at Temple Meads. It’s a really friendly and relaxed environment in which to buy and enjoy contemporary art from 55 different art galleries – all under one roof. Only £5 per person or better still, drop in after work on Friday and enjoy half price entry (between 6pm and 7pm) and a glass of complimentary wine, courtesy of Averys.

The Three Wine Men Events - 27th-28th September, 11th-12th October, 29th-30th November
The Three Wine Men are Oz Clarke, Olly Smith and Tim Atkin MW and they want to get
everyone in the country tasting and enjoying new wines. How? By bringing food and wine
retailers together at wine events around the UK. I’ll be there to present a number of wines
from the Averys range at the tastings in York (27th-28th Sept), Cardiff (11th-12th Oct) and
Manchester (29th-30th Nov). Visit www.threewinemen.co.uk for more information.

Averys Celebration of Wine - Saturday 8th November, 1pm-6pm
Yes, I know it may seem a long way off but tickets are now on sale for our annual Celebration of Wine Event at Bristol Grammar School. It’s £25 per ticket which is refundable against any order of 12 bottles or more purchased on the day. Pop the date in your diary, invite friends and book your tickets early as this event is always popular.

What’s happening at Averys Bristol Cellars?
Those of you who shop at our Bristol Cellars will have noticed a few changes of late. It’s not just the website and mailings that have had a new lick of paint! Building works are still going on at our Culver Street premises but the results will be well worth it. Visit the shop to keep up-to-date with all the new changes and ask the team about hiring the premises for parties and events.

I look forward to meeting you at one of the many events planned over the next few months and let’s raise our glasses to another glorious British summer.

Mimi Avery
