Bat and Bottle are Rutland’s only specialist importers of Italian wine. Truly multum in parvo, we are winners of the Decanter Retailers Awards for Best Italian Wine Merchant, and came second for Best Subscription Wine Club, as wel as being the first ever (2020) London Wine Fair Wine Buyers Award for: UKs ‘Best Online Specialist Wine Buyer’.
Our small warehouse on Oakham Enterprise Park is packed with artisan wines – shoppers are welcome to drop in whenever we are open; we sell directly to the public and there is no minimum purchase. Our wine club was shortlisted by the IWC as one of the UK’s top two wine clubs, we have even represented UK small businesses at Downing Street… You can be assured that though serious when we buy our wines, you will never find life is too serious when you shop with us.
Gradings & Awards
We are open as a shop whenever we are at the warehouse (which is all day, most days and many Saturdays).
However, our work includes frequent travel so we keep our website diary updated so that you can see when we are available and open.
Please check: https://bat.wine/pages/diary for our daily hours.
Whether or not we are present in the shop, we are always available and our delivery service does not stop.
You can always rely on us for our usual friendly, professional and personal service whether you shop with us in person or online.
