Who we are

Vesuvio is an independant family owned wine merchant, wine bar and shop. We have an extensive range of gins and craft beers, and from Food @ Vesuvio, upstairs, we serve high quality food prepared by Chef brothers, Nathan and Jacob Pattison.

Come along and sample any of our 300 or so fine alcoholic beverages, head upstairs and enjoy the delights of Food @ Vesuvio
 ... or just to take a look around and see what we do.

Our upstairs area is available for private hire. In addition to our regular wine tastings and dinners, we are also able to host bespoke private wine tastings, either at Vesuvio, or at a venue of your choice.

 Vesuvio Evolution

The business was started almost 5 years ago by brothers, Darren and Adrian Shield. From relatively humble beginnings as a wine shop, the bar was added as a sampling and serving area.

We have served food in various styles over the years, and currently the superb culinary skills of Chef brothers Nathan and Jacob Pattison are able to offer our customers
Food @ Vesuvio. The Food page has more information

We hold wine tastings and events usually usually at least once a month on  Sundays. You'll find information on the Events page and on the 'Vesuvio News' notice board in the shop.

 We also have live music from our resident duo, Somethin' Blue, in the bar each Sunday from 5-7pm. 

Our business is about making quality wines, gins and beers accessible to everyone, and providing our customers with a relaxed and friendly environment in which to enjoy and indulge.
