We started out with a selection of 45 wines when we opened in April ’21, offering 15 by the glass at the height of summer!

Then it crept up to 80 odd by September, then 120 and somehow we now find ourselves with a list of over 175 to choose from. Demand and interest from customers, and their willingness to try something different, has made the list far more interesting and varied than originally anticipated…

…of course there are familiar names and ‘Go to’ wines that people want, but there are a few that were lesser known and have fast become favourites with our customers, such as ‘Boa Vida’ produced by Dona Matilde from the Douro in Portugal using Touriga Franca & Touriga Nacional grapes; a great big juicy red wine. Roussane Grapes featuring in wines from the Savoie and the delicious, Bio, Côtes Du Rhone from M.Chapoutier, as well as surprises such as White Port in the shape of Baronesa De Vilar’s white port (Gouveio) from Porto the heartbeat of port. And the Biggest surprise of all the Rijks Touch Pinotage, not many will believe you when you say your number one selling wine by the glass is a Pinotage… but it is!

During the Autumn & winter months we reduce our wine by the glass offerings to 9: 4 whites 4 reds and a rose, along with prosecco and champagne, and of course Port and Sherry, so still plenty to choose from. As we have done since the start we shall rotate the wines by the glass on a regular basis but keeping the most popular on the list eg the Rijks Touch Pinotage!

We are not just all about wine we do have a selection of Scottish bottled beers, lagers and ciders, a carefully selected choice of Whiskies, half a dozen or so Gins and other spirits most of which are local/Scottish plus an array of soft drinks

For fear of you falling asleep we won’t list all 175 plus of our wines but below is an mid Summer top 10 well worth a try and like our rotation by the glass we will suggest a few more every couple of months.

Mid Summer Top 10

Grape, Region, Country, Producer/Name

Price per bottle

Albariño, Galicia, Spain, Rias Baixas, Heredad Chavarri ’20                           


Opening up this current Top 10 the most popular wine we have had out by the glass over the last few months and now a stalwart of our list and hard to take off the by the glass option… From Spain’s North West, loads of ‘apples & pears’ with a dry mineral finish. Works really well with all platters! At the same time a really lovely drink on it’s own.

Cinsault, Capestang, Languedoc, France,  Villa des Anges '20


We had to have a couple of Rosé included in this 10 as it’s summertime, this particular one has proven to be very popular, very pale, very light and easy drinking … almost too easy! A good choice for the Vegan platter. Then there are the Anchovies!

Syrah/Cinsault, France, Coteaux Varois en Provence, Château Bellini Rosé


Superb wine which punches way above its weight, fabulous combination of red fruits and zippy freshness. Outstanding favourite and a top seller in this bar

Sauvignon Blanc, Loire Valley, France, Sauvion, Les Rafelières


Zippy grassy freshness, hints of pear even grapefruit, basically sums up this classic French style sauvignon. A chance to move off the Kiwi stuff! A good companion to all the foods we have to offer.

Touriga Franca/Touriga Nacional, Douro, Quinta Dona Matilde, Boavida ’19


A favourite at a Staff tasting, a growing favourite of our customers when out by the glass, loads of fun, a succulent juicy wine!

Gouveio, Douro Valley, Porto, North Potrugal, Baronesa de Vilar – White Port

£5.50 by the glass

I’m including this White Port as ever since we have made it available, it has become a favourite with many customers especially in the flights. A favourite pre Sunday Lunch drink (slightly chilled) with those from the North of Portugal. Not as well known as it’s ruby red cousin but a lovely sweet hit, alternates as a desert wine. A recent Portuguese visitor stated that is was as a good as some of the better known brands of white ports out there…So a local recommendation!

Pinot Noir, nr Beaune, Burgundy, France, Domaine. Agnès Paquet ‘16


Pinot noir is the lighter end of the scale when it comes to red wines and when you get to Burgundy you are talking serious quality. Cranberries immediately springs to mind here, dry with a hint of acidity but smooth as.

And if you like this one I guarantee you’ll like the other Burgundy reds on offer!

Malbec, Cahors, France, Château du Caillau, 2019


We had to have a Malbec here somewhere, not necessarily Argentinian, but from the original home of Malbec – Cahors. I have been lucky enough to have worked with this wine for years for use at events and it has never disappointed. Currently out there by the glass  and very popular with customers. Verging on dry, but a softer wine. Plenty of the dark purple fruit tastes you would expect from a Malbec along with those oaky/leather undertones …but slightly different from Argentinian Malbec.

Check out Malbec, Cahors, Dom. Prince L’envol du Prince ‘18    I love French Malbec!

Cabernet Sauvignon/ Merlot/ Petit Verdot, Bordeaux, France Haut Médoc, Reflets de Cissac ’17


I couldn’t really not include a classic Bordeaux style, this one from the most popular and famous region, where only red wines are allowed to be made! The is a second wine of Cru Bourgeois Château Cissac in the northern Médoc, and it is a true second wine in that it is made from barrels which didn’t make the cut for the grand vin. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot, it has lovely perfumed black fruits, good plummy complexity and a moreish, mineral finish. Keen price point too.

Cremant de Bourgogne, Pinot Noir, Brut P100 Blanc de Noir, Simonnet Febvre


Last but not least a Fizz and very fitting this one is too… as good as some champagne, made with the same grapes, made the same way, the difference – it can’t be called champagne! For those of you who like a fizz this is a great treat, step up from Prosecco its worth it. I am confident you will not be disappointed!

Pinot Noir

Pinot noir is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name may also refer to wines created predominantly from Pinot noir grapes. The name is derived from the French words for pine and black. The word pine alludes to the grape variety having tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit.


Malbec is a purple grape variety used in making red wine. The grapes tend to have an inky dark colour and robust tannins, and are known as one of the six grapes allowed in the blend of red Bordeaux wine.

The Chablis region is the northernmost wine district of the Burgundy region in France. The cool climate of this region produces wines with more acidity and flavours less fruity than Chardonnay wines grown in warmer climates.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France. The grape most likely gets its name from the French words sauvage and blanc due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France. It is possibly a descendant of Savagnin.

Salmon tartar

Basil sour cream, horseradish oil, marinated radish, kale chips & warm red onion jam.

Beef Burger

Chevre Noir, dill tomato, roasted onion mayo, arugula, Quebec Wagyu’s beef bacon, crispy potato & dijonase.

Demi-poulet de Cornouailles

Portuguese spices rub, radicchio, lentil & aragula salad, goat cheese, whole grain mustard dressing.

Grilled Calmari

As well as the wine by the glass we offer a 3 x 50ml flight of any 3 of the wines that are opened for by the glass drinking, including Ports & Sherry.

However, we do not include the Fizz’s or any blackboard specials that may be on.

Magnum Night

Every third Friday of the Month will be Magnum night. Why a magnum? Well the bigger the bottle the better the wine keeps, and it’s just not always convenient to open a magnum or bigger when just two of you, so on these Fridays we will crack open a magnum or two depending on popularity to sell by the glass! Now there is treat to look forward to!
