The Somerset Wine Company is a small family-owned business launched in 2015. We believe in showcasing the best wines made by the best smaller producers which convey a strong connection to the land and place where the grapes are grown. ‘Terroir’ is the French explanation - we might say ‘sense of place’.

We supply our lovely products for both retail, via our shop in Castle Cary, and wholesale.

We are small and offer very personal service. We are 100% focussed on the quality of the wines we stock. We taste every bottle to select the best wines at the right price points we feel represent great value for you: From a fabulous niche Burgundy producer to a delicious every day Rosso Piceno under a tenner. We are excited by introducing you to new wines, unusual grape varieties or emerging wine regions to entice you to drink out of your usual comfort zone. These days folk are drinking less, but better - as Von Goethe famously said, “Life’s too short to drink bad wine”. Cheers to that.

Having a party? Friends for supper? Planning a wedding or celebration? Need to hire glasses? Fancy learning about wine?

Email, call or just pop in and tell us about your event, supper menu, or general wine needs. Wine isn’t rocket science, it shouldn’t be intimidating, it is fun and collaborative. Ours is a social wine shop: We’d love to chat, taste wines with you and help.

Principal Grape Varieties/Wine Regions? How To Describe What You Smell?



There is just something so irrefutably wonderful about wine. It is a simple agricultural product but a magical one. It is the ultimate alchemy: the humble grape turned nectar from heaven. It has an ability to touch your soul in the same way as music or art. Wine is a life enhancing product which has the power to move, to turn a shared meal with friends or family into an occasion, a picnic into a romantic proposal. Wine charts life's milestones, it celebrates and commiserates; it is inextricably linked to the joy of living and therefore so much more than just a drink.

Wine is so multi-faceted: It is where geology meets geography, agriculture meets art, chemistry meets culture, all blended together by the human hand. Wine is a collaborative process: a synthesis of nature's diverse elements and man's skill and creativity. It is a truly fascinating subject and we aim to share our passion for it with you.
