Grape and Nectar is a start-up by two mums (and wine trade professionals), Katherine Dart MW and Fiona Hayes. We want to make sure that everyone can find a moment of joy in every glass of wine they choose to pour. Our mantra is to drink better, rather than more and it’s our intention to spread the word that wine can be (and is) accessible. Ultimately, our goal is do this in a relaxed way, and we’d love you to join us for the ride.

Our Story

Between us we have 3 children and 35 years of experience in the wine trade. Over the years, we have travelled over 50,000 miles together, discovering, tasting and sourcing wines from all over the world. Most importantly, wine is a shared passion and we love the people who make it and the places it comes from. It has woven its way into our lives. We would like to share our knowledge with you, so please stay for a while, read some of our blog posts, look at the wine services we can provide, our upcoming events and, hopefully, one day we will get to meet you.

What can we offer you?

Knowledge is power. We are on mission to de-mystify wine, share our knowledge and help empower you to find bottles that will make you smile (#noshitwineplease). Therefore, whether it’s the perfect bottle to share with friends at the end of the week, or the ideal bottle for mid-week drinking with a bowl of simple pasta, we will be able to point you in the right direction.

Grape & Nectar will be running tastings, workshops and supper clubs throughout the year (click here to see our calendar of events and other services we can offer).

The Grape & Nectar blogs are packed with tips, tricks and advice on how to drink better. We want to personally guide you through a world that can appear complex, occasionally elitist and sometimes old-fashioned. Follow us on Instagram (@grapeandnectar) to stay up-to-date as our plans unfold.
