S H Jones WinesSH Jones Wine Merchant

S H Jones Wines was established in Banbury in 1848.  Since the beginning a large proportion of the company’s business has been supplying the on-trade, and we continue to serve pubs, hotels and restaurants in a large area around Banbury.

The company took over the current High Street premises in 1910, and opened two further shops in Bicester and Leamington in the late 1990s.  There is now a second outlet in Banbury, the Cellar Shop, attached to our large warehouse on the Tramway Estate.  As well as our extensive range of wines, the shops also stock a large range of spirits and liqueurs, and a variety of local bottled ales.  All our staff receive accredited training from the WSET, the Wines and Spirits Educational Trust.

Weddings & special occasions

Planning the perfect wedding, whatever the style and budget, can be a monumental and sometimes stressful task.  From deciding upon the guest list to choosing outfits to planning the reception – there is so much to think about and to do.

This is why at S H Jones we like to ensure that our customers’ experience of choosing wines for the special day is relaxed and enjoyable.  We want you to have the confidence and peace of mind that everyone will appreciate your choices for the traditional toasts and in matching the meal that is served – whether it be a formal wedding breakfast, buffet or barbecue.

 

Events & wine tasting and special offers

Faliero ‘Miliasso’ Langhe Nebbiolo 2012

This was a very exciting find! Nebbiolo from its homeland of Piedmont, NW Italy, with a little bit of bottle age for less than £10; surely some mistake. No mistake, and it’s rather good! More approachable at a younger age than most Barolo and Barbaresco (the iconic expressions of the grape), this still has that fabulous combination of fruit, spice and savoury notes on the nose, leading onto a warm palate of spiced plum and cherry fruit with well integrated tannins, a peppery/leathery kick and a delightful texture.

Was £14.99, Now £9.99

Alvi’s Drift Viognier

Viognier from Worcester???? Worcester, South Africa that is, and an absolute belter it is too!

The nose is typical of the variety, white peach, apricot and delicate musky notes; expressive but restrained and elegant at the same time. Nicely ripe and with a pleasing, delicately viscous texture, the crisp limey acidity lends balances and adds to its versatility when it comes to food pairing – try with spicy Thai fish cakes, creamy curries or spiced roasted butternut squash. The current 2014 vintage garnered 2 gold medals at South Africa’s Michelangelo International Wine Awards 2014.

Was £8.49, Now £7.49

Alverdi Sangiovese

There’s a trio of wines from Alverdi on offer (a lovely Pinot Grigio & a rosé are the others), but it’s the Sangiovese that stands out as over-delivering on the quality/price ratio. Ripe black cherry and black berry fruit, notes of violets and spice, and a balsamic twang. And it’s a pleasingly modest 12% ABV. Perfect with all manner of pasta dishes, it also excels at BBQs.

 

Was £6.99, Now £5.99

Innocent Bystander Pink Moscato

Lummy, what a treat! This gently effervescent, delicately sweet Australian rosé, made from Moscato, is nothing short of dangerous – like a posh alco-pop if you will – 5.5% and redolent of cherry, rhubarb and peach fruit. Frothy and frivolous, maybe, but utterly divine. Find an excuse, shut the door, turn off the phone and enjoy. You could even use a straw!

 

Was £10.99, Now £8.99

Look what I’ve found!

Rummaging about in the warehouse recently we stumbled across some magnums of claret, which was nice! The 2009 and 2010 vintages in Bordeaux were outstanding, by the way. Very limited stock.

Château Talbot, St. Julien 2006 & 2008

Château Leoville-Barton, St. Julien 2007 & 2009 Château Petit Village, Pomerol 2008 & 2010 Château Gazin, Pomerol 2006 & 2009

 

£75.95 & £82.95 respectively £109.60 & £171.00 £93.40 & £96.70 £122.00 & £182.40
This month we’ll end with a couple of sparkling wines. One, the easy-going Villa Granda Prosecco, offers up appealing pear and peach-skin flavours on a soft and gentle palate. A bargain at £7.99, this looks even sharper if you buy it in 6’s and save 10%.The other, Moncontour Vouvray Brut, is a sparkling Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley, produced by the Méthode Traditionnelle*, and is a fabulous melange of windfall apple and lemon zest flavours, with a backnote of almond and minerals. Utterly charming and elegant, this is as good served with fish or seafood as it is served on its own at a celebration, or as an aperitif. £13.99, with 10% off when bought in 6’s or as part of a mixed case. Marvellous! *Méthode Traditionnelle is the name given to the process of producing the fizz in Champagne & some sparkling wines by inducing a second fermentation inside the bottle, a byproduct of which is carbon dioxide.

 Frogabilia Art & Vintage Deco

Inspired design and art

Frogabilia took shape in 2011, dreamed up by artist Athanasia Mavroudi who has always been inspired by beautiful objects and original design.  Sourcing the best of retro style, quality antiques and deco design, Frogabilia brings you everything you need for inspiration, decoration and expression, for gifts, for your home, for you!

Frogabilia Art & Vintage DecoOur philosophy

At Frogabilia we believe that beautiful objects can really enhance your life, making your domestic environment more inspiring and restful, creating harmony whilst expressing something of yourself.  Creating and decorating an interior is a creative process, and the results reflect who you really are.  We also like the idea that each object has a story to tell, and has been made with a lot of skill and craftsmanship, and with good quality, long-lasting materials (the odd chip here or there just adds to the charm).  The fact that these objects have survived, standing the test of time, proves their value.  We believe that you must choose the things that surround you by your inner feelings and not according to what fashion dictates, matching objects with your personality.  This is why you will find such a range of beautiful and quirky items in our shop alongside classic designs and styles.
