We were delighted to visit the New Zealand Cellar this week at its new home in PopBrixton. They participated in our inaugural Commonwealth food and drink festival in Parliament last Christmas and we also helped them crowd-fund their expansion early this year.
The Cellar is run by Melanie Brown, a proud Kiwi and Brixton resident. She raised £42,502 on Kickstarter which allowed her to open a shop front for her wines. You can pop down to the store to buy by the bottle, sit at the bar and drink-in by the glass, and you can also order online.
Offering a unique portfolio with 200 wines from 72 producers, the company’s intention is to showcase the very best wines from the country’s finest vineyards, with a firm focus toward boutique wineries and small production wines.
There is also a plan to circulate a magazine advertising the best of New Zealand products to those in the UK.
One of CX’s objectives has always been to support small businesses in London and beyond who are from a Commonwealth background. That is why we are delighted to play a small role in Melanie’s company. All our supporters will also get an email over the coming days with a limited time promo offer.
So we urge our supporters to visit Brixton this weekend and sample the fine New Zealand wine.
