Great wines for Easter

With restaurants sadly still closed, the wine trade continues to offer us some really great wines, and all at mouth-wateringly reduced prices:

  • Les Patis is a 2020 Pouilly-Fume for only £12.99, a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc (saving £6 on normal prices).
  • Chateau Bonnet is a classic Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon from Bordeaux, also for only £12.99 (a great saving of £5).

We also have 3 great new wines for only £6.99 each:

  • Benjamin, a refined and elegant Chardonnay from Argentina.
  • La Voluta Grande, a rich and juicy Sangiovese from Puglia in the south of Italy, just right for any pasta dish.
  • Rebel Canyon, all the way from California, a big, soft and plummy Merlot.

Springing Forward?

Well the sun has been shining and our spring flowers are appearing in abundance – who can believe it’s almost a whole year since we had to make such life-changing adjustments to our world.

Here at Woodgreen Community Shop we are so looking forward to the time when our shop can return to being one of the social hubs for the community where people can stop to chat in the shop, sit to enjoy a coffee and join in our popular tasting events. Maybe if we are lucky that will not be so far away…..

However, in the meantime, we are still continuing to follow the Government Covid guidelines and in the words of Professor Jonathan Van-Tam “not take our foot off the pedal yet” so we just need to gently remind you of our shop protocols. For everyone’s continued safety, please adhere to our guidelines:

  • Do not enter the shop if you have a persistent cough or a fever
  • Wear a face covering unless you are medically exempt. Sanitiser is provided for your hands and the baskets
  • Do not enter the shop if there are already 3 customers present or 2 customers at the PO counter, we will call you when it is safe to enter.
  • Respect others – shop alone if you are able, to prevent a queue building at busy times.

Thank you again for all your support, kind words and appreciation of the shop.
