Country Life Feature
Take a peek in the 15th April edition of Country Life and you’ll find DBM Wines in ‘Town & Country Notebook’. In ‘Wine of the Week’ we feature with one of our current favourite bottles Famille JM Cazes, Domaine de L’Ostal, Estibals, Minervois, Languedoc, France 2016. This juicy, ripe Syrah-Carignan-Grenache-Mourvedre blend has subsequently proved to be so popular that we have temporarily sold out! But fear not, we can recommend an equally delicious alternative , St Chinian "Les Cerises", Domaine M & P Guiraud.
And don’t forget we offer a full wine delivery service, straight to your door. Our shop may be closed for the time being, but our office is open from Monday to Friday, 9.00am – 5.00pm and we are able to take orders online, by phone and email.

Helping Bristol University Support Key Workers.
Ordinarily we are known as a Bristol Wine Merchant, however this week we were extremely proud to have the opportunity to diversify and help support our local community in these extraordinary times.
A team from University of Bristol’s School of Chemistry has been providing a vital role in producing much needed World Health Organisation (WHO) hand sanitisers for key workers across the city. Academics, researchers and technicians from the University have over the past ten days successfully sourced raw materials, secured the necessary certification and produced around 1000 litres of sanitiser.
We were asked if we could help with the distribution and did not hesitate to donate 50 brand-new, strong DBM boxes.
The first delivery of 600 pump dispensers was delivered to Bristol City Council last week and our boxes will be used to distribute the sanitiser to key workers such as the emergency services, postal workers, waste management operatives and transport staff.
Professor Gallagher of Bristol University said: “This has been a real team effort, with unstinting support from colleagues from across the University, the City Council and our external partners and suppliers.
“The demand for WHO-grade sanitiser, and the raw supplies needed to make it, has soared in recent weeks, and with absolute reason. It’s vital that our front-line workers are as protected as possible, so they can continue to carry out their crucial duties and keep our city running”.
Professor Tim Gallagher went on to confirm the team will continue to produce the free hand sanitiser for the city to help meet the rising demand and that their next target is to make a further 2,000 litres in the coming weeks.
Richard Davis of DBM wines said: ‘It goes without saying, we would be delighted to help again. Hopefully nobody will get confused, and we're not expecting any miss picks as this is definitely not for consumption. This hand sanitiser is 70% Proof!’
