Novel Wines

Unique and wonderful wines you've never tasted before, from Bath's award-winning online wine merchant

The brainchild of award-winning wine journo Ben Franks (in the middle) and Hungarian wine importer Gyorgy Zsiga (on the right), online wine merchant Novel Wines aims to put the fun back into wine.

Showcasing unique and wonderful new wines, from small producers and community co-operatives from around the world (often from places not previously known for their wine),  you’ll discover wines you’ve never tasted before.

Wines come from places like Lebanon, Thailand, Japan, Croatia and India (yes you did read that right), as well as their own specialisms of England and Hungary.

Search for wines by style, region, body or producer. Look for vegan, veggie and organic wines. Their wine pairing search function is inspired. Just select what you’ll be eating and discover the perfect match. Note to self: there’s a choice of seven fizzes to accompany a Full English.

Not just wine: there are unusual gins, liqueurs and other tipples, too. Truffle gin, anyone?

Ben hosts regular wine tastings open to wine lovers of all levels in Bath (or you can book a private session), complete with tasting notes, spittoons (got to do this properly), cheese and nibbles.

No minimum order and free delivery when you spend £99 or more.
