Bench Wine Sale

08 Jul 2024

Dear Colleagues,

Bench Wine Sale

I write to draw to your attention an unprecedented and most welcome opportunity for members of the Inn…

The Inn’s Bench Wine reserves have, largely for COVID-related reasons, become over-stocked with ready-to-drink wines (which in normal circumstances might have been consumed by now at Inn events). In consequence, it has been decided to offer over 3,000 bottles from those reserves for consumption by members of the Inn at their leisure.

There are many reasons why this offer is not to be ignored. Three, in particular, strike me as significant:

  • The bottles were all bought on release and have been impeccably stored since purchase.
  • The wines were all chosen by the Inn’s Wine Sub-Committee to provide the greatest possible combination of quality, value for money and drinking pleasure.
  • The offer prices all the available stock at or about 20% below current market values.

The offer goes live via the Inn’s online shop ( on Monday 8 July 2024. Bottles are available individually and by the case. You will find famous names from Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Rhone, Italy, Spain, Germany…

I urge you to have a look!
