Who are we?
Prior to setting up The Bubbly Wine Company, company owner Alison Calder spent 15 years working in various roles in the UK On-Trade and Wine Industry. This included training as a Sommelier with Malmaison Hotels, working in a management position for a Michelin Star restaurant and then focussing her career in the Wine Industry working for both international and UK based wine companies.
Alison has a Masters Degree in International Hospitality Management, has completed her WSET wine exams to diploma level alongside the WSET educators course. The years Alison spent working in the wine industry meant that she experienced first-hand the pretence around wine, she decided she wanted to create a wine company where this didn’t exist and so The Bubbly Wine Company was born.
Alison believes that “wine is fun, exciting and something to celebrate but is so often presented in a way that is stuffy and uninteresting” For us it is all about bringing that extra sparkle to your wine experience, bringing the wines to life and having fun with it. We are Cheshire based and hold a whole range of events around Cheshire and Manchester. These include our regular themed tastings, pop up events, private tastings at our customer’s houses and corporate events.
We also work on a consultancy basis with On-Trade establishments and are happy to travel for all events and consultations.
We are extremely proud of the range on our Online Wine Shop where each wine has been lovingly selected. We feel that we have something to offer all palates and budgets and we are always here to offer guidance should you need it, just drop us an email or give us a call and we will help in any way that we can.
Our Wine Club was created for those of our customers who like an element of surprise, who struggle to find time to do their own wine shop or who want to experiment with their wine choices. We really care about creating a positive customer experience, whether it is making lasting relationships with those customers we see regularly, or exceeding the expectations of a customer who buys off us for the first time.
We will also shortly be introducing the “Learn Wine” section of our website along with our Blog so that we can give something back to you so will be publishing podcasts and webinars for oodles of wine information. Please follow us on social media to be updated on this.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of help in anyway.
“Would like to recommend Alison Calder and the Bubbly Wine Company. Alison is so lovely and knowledgeable and has introduced me to some gorgeous wines I would not normally try and suggested wines as gifts for friends and family that have been VERY well received”
