    Late night shopping and seasonal discounts from Lyme Bay Winery

    Winery News 9th November 2022

    Once the embers of Bonfire night have died down we start to get into the Christmas spirit here at Lyme Bay Winery, and what better way to get ahead of your seasonal preparations than with a spot of late-night shopping – and mulled wine tasting! – at our Cellar Door.

    Late night shopping

    In the run-up to Christmas, we are extending our Cellar Door opening hours on Thursdays 10, 24 November, and 8 December until 7 pm, where our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be on hand to help you get all your Christmas drinks preparations well in hand.

    Christmas Drinks

    As well as our award-winning English Wines and a sensational selection of spirits, Lyme Bay has also gained a flurry of fans for our tempting festive tipples, which are the ideal accompaniment for Yuletide merrymaking.

    For starters, Christmas isn’t Christmas without a pudding, so we’ve embodied the character of that rich, fruity classic in our delicious warming, Christmas Pudding Wine.

    Then there’s our Christmas Mead which, as you might expect, is made from the finest mead gently blended with Christmas spices for a perfectly smooth and mellow Christmas tipple.

    For a double whammy of festive necessities, our Mulled Wine & Christmas Mead Gift Box supplies a duo of spiced delights to beat the chill.

    Another fast favourite is our Lyme Bay Winter Gin. This winter warmer is grounded in rich, earthy tones layering black pepper and nutmeg over notes of elderberries, blackberries, and a hint of burnt orange. The warm, lingering finish is reminiscent of long evenings in front of the fire – the place where our Winter Gin is best enjoyed.

    Stock up for Christmas

    Our Lyme Bay Winery Cellar Door here in Shute, near Axminster, is an established Devon stop-off whether you’re looking for your everyday favourites or something special for Christmas, so do stop by for a spot of late-night shopping and a glass of mulled wine on 10 and 24 November and 8 December.

    We’re also proudly taking part in ‘Axminster Chamber of Commerce’s ‘Big Deal for Axminster‘ initiative – with the aim of encouraging our local community to support independent traders in the run to Christmas – and are offering customers at our Cellar Door 30% off a case of six bottles of our popular Shoreline Rosé.

    Small Business Saturday UK

    According to the Chamber of Commerce if every adult spent £5 a week in Axminster that they would otherwise have spent elsewhere (or online) the value to the local economy would be £1.8 million each year.

    Even if you don’t live – or shop – in our beautiful part of the Jurassic Coast you can still make a difference to small businesses in your area by ‘shopping local’ on Small Business Saturday, which takes place on the first Saturday in December each year and this year falls on Saturday 3 December.

    Order drinks online for Christmas

    Our award-winning range of festive drinks means you are sure to find something for everyone on your Christmas present list, and our wonderful Cellar Door is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm, and on Sunday from 11 am until 3 pm, as well as the extended hours mentioned above.

    If you can’t make it in person, then you can always order online or get in touch with our friendly Winery team via email at [email protected] or by calling us on 01297 551355 if you’d like to order by phone.
