Edward Sheldon Open Day – Shipston Independent Wine Merchants

Events, Features, Places by Tony No Comments »

Edward Sheldon

Saturday 22nd September 11.00 am to 16.00 pm

Edward Sheldon Limited are independent Wine Merchants who have been trading in Shipston-on-Stour since 1842. They have a range of over 700 wines and, although they specialize in French wines, their list incorporates a wide and diverse range from around the world.

Richard Badger, who started the business, became a vintner after first selling medicated wine at his pharmacy and in the late 1850s he passed the business to his nephew Edward Sheldon. The Company still occupies the original extensive cellars and offices.

On Saturday September 22nd from 11am until 4pm (postponed from August because of the devastating floods where they lost over 18000 bottles of wine – yes eighteen thousand!!- see picture at the end of this article) Edward Sheldon are opening their Shop, Cellars and Courtyard to give everyone the opportunity to see what a local independent wine merchant can offer.

There will be Guided Tours of the 19th Century Cellars at 12.00, 13.00, 14.00, 15.00 and 16.00 together with a Pig Roast, Wine Tastings, Pimms Tent, Special Offers, Music with Helen Porter and lots more.
