Cool Grapes Ltd is owned by myself, Alan Clement.
I have always had a passion for wine. Not just drinking it, but everything surrounding the subject, from its history to the thousands of grape varieties there are and how the vines are grown, to how wine is made and how the same wine, can at times, taste totally different, yet made from the same grape. I have also always been fascinated at how some wines go with one type of food, whilst others do not. I also like to experiment and try to find unusual food & wine pairings that buck the trend of the traditional tracks of thought.
I also love to talk…about wine! It truly is, an awesome tipple, but can sometimes be shrouded in mystery so that is why, after a long career in IT, I decided to leave and start over, in the world of all things wine! And, I now invite you to join me in my journey. I do not claim to be an expert, however I do know a bit more than many, having spent many years taking an in-depth interest, together with spending all of 2016 studying to attain my WSET Advanced certificate in Wines and spirits.
I’d love the opportunity to share some of my experiences with you and to help you to see beyond the label on a bottle, to know whether you are going to enjoy the wine and why you enjoy it.
Specialising in organic and bio-dynamic wine, my ambition is to introduce people to quality wines from across the world, how to pair these with the food that you eat and to empower you with a little more knowledge about each wine.
Whena customer, new or returning, visits my site, I want them to feel confident and empowered, in their purchasing decisions. If booked for a food and wine tasting event, this approach is at the top of the agenda. There is no hard sell at the end of an event either, as I want customers to feel overjoyed with their purchases so they gain trust and return.
In the future, we will be launching our Cool Grapes Wine Club, that differs from most clubs you may have heard of before.
So, please feel free to look around the new website, take a look at our fantastic range of organic and bio-dynamic wines, our aim is to become the biggest of its type in Gloucestershire!
I also offer free delivery to all Cheltenham postcodes, subject to minimum order requirements and a very reasonable rate for nationwide delivery.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and for reading this page and I look forward to welcoming you into the world of Cool Grapes!
