From the grapevine...
The Swindon guide to wine and spirits 


Welcome to "From the Grapevine!"

This site explores the world of wine and spirits in Swindon and the surrounding area, through blog posts, social media and tasting events.

We'll highlight some of the delights on the shelves of local supermarkets and wine shops, and give you advice and insight to help you explore the wonderful world of wine and spirits.  We write up what happened (and what we drank) at the charity wine tasting events I've been running and occasionally, I'll delve into my cookbook to pair up some food and wine delights.

The blog has been written by Claire Fleming, Wiltshire wine enthisiast, and WSET student. As a day job I market sustainable transport, but on the side, I'm a fiction writer (why not pair my novels with wine at )? 

If you have any feedback, we'd love to hear from you - you can get in touch through the Contact tab .
