To all our lovely customers, thank you for your continued AMAZING support for Ann et Vin during the lockdown. This has been a trying time for us all but we are hopefully starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We also wanted to give you an update from Ann & the Team.
Summer Wine Tasting, Friday 5th June & Mini Wine Tasting, Saturday 6th June – these events, for obvious reasons, have been postponed for the foreseeable future. We are still hoping that the Autumn Wine Tasting in November will go ahead as usual, so any Summer Wine tickets already bought will be automatically transferred to the Autumn event. You are also welcome to have a full refund (just contact Ann on 01636 700900) or you can use the value of your tickets as store credit. The choice is yours!
Onto more news now…as the Government is now starting to ease the lockdown restrictions for retailers, we are planning a phased re-opening of the wine shop:
Ongoing – we will continue taking wine orders via email (email@example.com) for delivery. For the moment, the shop will remain closed to the public.
Tuesday 16th June – we will be reopening the shop on Castle Gate, five days a week (closed Sunday and Monday). Please note that initally, we will only be open 2pm until 5pm. We would ask you to observe social distancing guidelines and use the hand sanitzer available to you before entering the shop. We will also be limiting the number of customers in the shop at any time. The inside Courtyard Wine Bar will be closed for the foreseeable future.
Wine deliveries – even after we re-open, we will absolutely be continuing with our wine deliveries and we’ll be using the mornings when we are closed to do the packing up. The order cut off for next-day deliveries will be 12 noon. Please email Ann on firstname.lastname@example.org to place your orders and Ann will be in touch to arrange payment and confirm delivery.
– to celebrate the reopening of the shop, we will be running a socially-distanced (of course!) FREE prize draw for two lucky people to win either a bottle of D1 London Gi
n or D1 Potato Vodka, plus two runner-up prizes of DJ’s Cold Infusion Pockets. From Tuesday 16th June, bring a pen and drop your contact details (name / email / phone number) in the Entry Box by our front door and you could be in with a chance to win! We’ll be picking the winners in a Facebook Live video on Wednesday 1st July, so make sure you head over to the Ann et Vin Facebook page
) so you don’t miss all the excitement!
Finally, once again, thank you to all our lovely customers for your support. We hope that this new shopping experience won’t be too inconvenient for you. I’m sure we’ll all get used to the ’new normal’ very soon!
We can’t wait to see you all again very soon.
