Who are we? Appellation Nation is an independent wine business founded in 2003 and based in the heart of the Cotswolds with wine shops in the market town of Cirencester and most recently in Montpelier, Cheltenham.
Why come to us?
One by one the traditional wine merchants have disappeared from the High Street leaving the big supermarkets with the lion’s share of the business. We have nothing against supermarkets but to fill the shelves of hundreds of stores means having to source wines on a huge scale and more often than not this means selling wines that are produced almost industrially with more attention paid to production cost than quality.
As a true independent wine shop we take pride in sourcing wines direct from small growers; winemakers who care about how the grapes are grown and producing high quality wines with care and minimal intervention. In store our trained staff is on hand to answer any questions, make recommendations or to help you with that tricky food pairing. We hold regular event tastings and always have two or three bottles open in store at the weekends for you to sample.
With interest in wine showing no signs of slowing down we believe our customers deserve the best and you can rest assured that we have gone to the greatest lengths to source individual, honest, quality wines for you.
**Please note that we have a wider range of wines in our shops, and some of the online special offers may not be available in our shops and vice versa.
