Raising a glass to The Dorset Wine Company

One of the most recent additions to Queen Mother Square is The Dorset Wine Company, who relocated from Peverell Avenue West in May last year.

The showcase shop, owned by Jonathan Charles, offers an incredible range of wine, spirits and liqueurs and you are able to enjoy wine by the glass or bottle for tastings.

With nearly 20 years of experience in the wine trade, Jonathan has built up a host of valuable contacts and is passionate about the range of wines that are stocked and the small, dedicated producers that The Dorset Wine Company represents.

Established in 2006 by Jonathan, The Dorset Wine Company has built up a legion of loyal followers who appreciate that no nonsense advice and great wines that needn’t cost the earth.

Following the popular summer pizza events alongside Jalopy Pizza last year, Jonathan is hoping to organise more pop up restaurants two evenings a month with Yalbury Cottage.

He said: “We are really pleased we made the move because the bigger premises has allowed us to do tastings and the events we’ve held have been really popular.”

Wine by the glass or bottle is available all week until 6.30pm and 8pm on Fridays.

The Dorset Wine Company also run regular in-store tastings that have become something of a Poundbury institution. The already sold-out GINuary Blues event takes place on Thursday, 26 January and will see gins sampled from around the world.
