Drinks for your party

Planning a party, whether it’s a wedding for 200 or a dinner party for 10, can be tricky. We are here to help you choose the right wines for your event, appropriate to your budget and tastes.

We will help you match wines from our entire range to your menus and we can also suggest the quantities you may require, helping to make the wine buying process as simple and easy as possible.

As well as wine we offer a range of softs and spirits so that all your drinks can be arranged with one point of contact, one delivery and one bill.

You will be able to try many of our wines in the shop alongside our inventive small plate menu. This will be a sociable environment where an initial enthusiasm can either be fostered from scratch or an established passion developed for many years to come.

No Corkage Tuesday

Normally we charge a small corkage fee so that any of our over 250 wines can be opened and enjoyed at Saville Row. Following on from the popularity of this in Tisbury, on the first Tuesday of each month this will be free... it's a bargain.
