A NEW wine shop has opened its doors in the city centre.

Artisan Wine & Spirit Co, on Winchester Street, will be Salisbury's "only independent wine merchant", and has special offers in place to celebrate its opening.

Doors opened today (Tuesday, May 4), and the team behind the shop said: "We will be waiting to welcome you to our brand new shop with a brilliant range of great wines from small producers, eclectic spirits, craft beers and cider and a range of Vermouth the likes of which, I think it’s fair to say, Salisbury has never seen.

"We will be Salisbury’s only independent wine merchant so please come in and say hi, have a chat, spread the word and support local."

To celebrate what they described as a "momentous occasion", they are giving away a bottle of Bolney Estate Classic Cuvee English Sparkling wine with any order of £150 or more between Tuesday, May 4 and Saturday, May 8.

It is open from 10am to 5pm.
