"An Aladdin's Cave of Wine!"

Ann et Vin in Newark on Trent is a small independent wine retailer offering more than 500 different wines, spirits, beers and associated alcoholic items.

Ann takes great delight in personally choosing all of the wines and spirits that are for sale in her Newark wine shop. Modestly, she says that she does not consider herself a wine expert, but certainly knows more than the 'man on the street'. She actively supports smaller independent wine producers and wine importers and her wine suppliers love that she can do this for them without a corporate agenda.

She has a fabulous 'wine memory' and can still recall the taste of wines that she tried more than 20 years ago! Ann is recognised by her peers as one of the top female independent wine merchants in the UK, often being asked to judge at wine competitions held by the Wine Merchant magazine and other publications.

Ann combines a 'commercial palate' with good retail acumen and she's able to understand exactly what customers want from a particular wine.

Ann et Vin has weathered the UK's recession and challenging economic status for small high street businesses but it is her determination and love of wine that keeps her getting out of bed every morning to serve her loyal customers.

Ann will never baffle her customers with 'wine speak', she wants more people to come along and try her wines with help and advice. She says: "Everyone's palate is completely different and I don't expect everyone to like the same wines. But I love being able to challenge people's perceptions with my wine choices for them. I call it 'getting them out of their wine bubble'."

Ann et Vin has pushed the boundaries for a small wine retail business while it has been open in Newark. The emphasis is always on providing excellent quality wines at a wide range of prices to suit the palates of her local customers.
