Bordeaux has a reputation for fine Chateau and fine wine but it's not all Petrus and Lafitte. If you know what you're looking for, there are some affordable gems to be found.
We spend quite a bit of time sipping, slurping, swooshing, sloshing and spitting here at Ake and Humphris, all in the name of research of course.
As a nation we drink more Champagne than anybody else in the world (aside from the French themselves)!
As fellow wine and beer enthusiasts, we have a simple idea behind what we do...
We hand pick our way through thousands of bottles each year (let's face it - taste everything!) to discover outstanding examples that are both true to their style and region as well as representing excellent value for money.
Please visit us at our wine shop on Leeds Road, Harrogate and in Collingham, Yorkshire or Shop online (with great value wines and convenient home delivery), you'll be sure of a friendly welcome and expert advice from some of the most experienced wine drinkers in Yorkshire.
The Harrogate wine shop offers over 1000 bottles of champagne, fine and value wines and over 250 specialist beers as well as a compelling variety of spirits, and handy off-road parking. To entice you to expand your palate we have regular Harrogate wine tastings in-store, where you can sample some fine wines and discover what you really love from our extensive selection.
We are proud to offer wines, beers and spirits you will not find on the supermarket shelf - each one tried and tested by our dedicated team - delicious wines for every occasion from £4.99 to £279 and the greatest IPA's and Yorkshire beers for your daily revival.
We also provide a personal and corporate event service - providing bespoke advice, food and wine pairings, wine tastings and bulk supply for weddings, parties and business functions including the provision of wine hampers and wine gifts. Please ask for Martin or Paul.
Not just a retailer, A&H are also Yorkshire's premier wine merchant, providing a wholesale service to trade customers throughout the country.
We are truly independent trailblazers and buy what we love and what we think is great, we hope you do too!
“Whenever I want something special to take to a dinner party I pop in for a bottle and it always comes with great advice and a bit of a tale. Something for every budget too and a much nicer experience than going to the supermarket!” Nicola Wilson, Harrogate. September 2016
