Press Wine Services

Independent Wine Shop in Canterbury

Press Wine Services select wine specifically to deliver quality, typicité and expression and are chosen by Master of Wine Clive Barlow from independent importers and producers.

Quality selected wines

The wines on sale at the Goods Shed’s Press Wine Services are selected specifically to deliver quality, typicité and expression and are chosen by Master of Wine Clive Barlow from independent importers and producers. Instead of shelves full of large global brands you will find wines from smaller, quality-focussed growers and winemakers who aim to create individual characterful wines for individuals. As well as wines from Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Cornwall there are plenty to choose from the Classic regions of Europe such as Burgundy and Bordeaux, Rioja and Piedmonte and you will come across great finds from Austria, Portugal, Spain and Germany.

The wine range

The wines range from simple good drinking wines giving good levels of fruit and balance to fine age- worthy creatures which deliver complexity harmony and texture. Whatever the price point or style, each wine will have enough structure to partner food, and many can be consumed as ‘drinking wines’ or  an aperitif. There are no ‘fruit bomb’ wines here, no sugar-sweet wines masquerading as dry wines just good honest wine delivering honest true flavours from the grape, terroir and winemaker.

Wine Search Service

Press Wine Services hosts a wine search service to help you find those wines you love but cannot get hold of and also seeks out small parcels of special wines produced only in small volumes, such as the Gonzalez Byass Palmas range, to offer its customers.

Wine Events & Dinners

In addition to offering a range of wines there a number of wine events and Dinners at which you enjoy a lively, informative tasting or a fine meal accompanied by specially selected wines. To date the Wine Dine events have taken place at local restaurants including the Goods Shed Restaurant, The Sportsman at Seasalter, and Wheelers of Whitstable. There are also regular tasting dates at the Goods Shed for you to attend.

If you wish to attend any of the events, or organise a bespoke wine tasting, or be sent the latest list please email clivewine@aol.com or contact form. Or come and visit him at the Goods Shed.
