Muddy finds: The Art of Wine, Truro

3 Mar 2016

A quickie just to give a nod and tip of the hat to the dapper Roland and Enora at their brand spanking new venture The Art of Wine in Nalder’s Court, Truro – we are totes excited about this one. Only open a week or so now, its already on the radar of the pre-theatre dinner crowd.

Not just a wine shop, not just a lounge bar and not just a gallery – it’s all three. Every bottle of wine, chunk of cheese and painting on the wall has been hand-picked – and shows their amazingly cool tastes.

wineemotionHow cool are these? The WineEmotion dispensers give you a choice of 16 wines to try by the glass  in serving of 25ml, 75 ml or 125 ml. This allows customers to try the wines before they buy a bottle, to make new wine discoveries or to have just a glass or their favourite wines at a very reasonable price. You just top up a credit card type thing at the counter with how ever much you want to spend, and from as little as 80p you can try new wines. Who knew Serbia had a wine industry? Not this wine-thicko.

Roland ran his own construction business in France and England for years, before deciding to follow his passion and work in the wine industry. And he’s done a rather splendid job on the reno:

The official launch isn’t for a few weeks – keener than a mum on the front row of the christmas concert I’ll be camping outside in a sleeping bag the night before. Watch this space…
