Accolade opens its own UK wine store
Accolade said the shop is its answer to a "cellar door" in the UK
Accolade has opened a wine shop at its head office site in Weybridge, Surrey.
The company said that its 1853 Wine Club shop, which opened today, is its answer to a 'cellar door' in the UK. The shop is an extension of its existing 1853wineclub.com e-commerce site.
Accolade will sell its own brands, such as Hardys, Flagstone and Mud House, as well as a "number of old world wines supplied by strategic partners; Constellation Wines and Matthew Clark".
The shop also has two Enomatic machines, featuring 16 wines available for sample.
Rob Harrison, Accolade Wines general manager for UK and Ireland sales, said: "The shop was part of the strategy in the decision to relocate the Accolade Wines UK head office to Weybridge in the later part of this year."
Earlier this month, Accolade Wines partnered its Kumala brand with former England cricketer Ian Botham on his latest charity walk, across South Africa.
