Wine Tours

Interesting is always, tucked around the corner, a little more difficult to find.

Wine shops in West Sussex and Hampshire

Vin Wine Merchants operate from a listed building dating back to the mid 1700’s offering a range of wines from all over the world which are racked using old fruit crates as shelving.

Wine merchants on the South Coast

They run courses and tasting events which are held in a tasting room.

Wine tasting events and courses

Woith a small wine bar in the upstairs lounge offering wine and fizz by the glass,  local and international beers or a tasty G&T as well as sharing platters with crusty bread, olives and dipping oils .

During the warmer months there is courtyard garden to enjoy some al fresco drinking. Quiet and relaxed its the perfect place to unwind and escape for a bit.

Local Schools

Despite the restrictions placed on their use of the internet, the boys still manage to find more to interest them on their PC’s and cell phones.

Rather than sitting down and ploughing their way through the books we drew through the Library before we were locked down. Let alone the Year 7 Maths they will need to get through their GCSE’s. It’s going to be a steep hill they have to climb just to catch up. But that is for me to worry about.

School admissions are handled by the local council. When I phoned I was politely directed to the Council web site where you are supposed to be able to find all the information that is required. But in practice it doesn’t quite work out as well as it should. I was still left bewildered and overwhelmed.

Recycling

Deciding what does and what doesn’t get recycled gets complicated. Different rules apply in different areas and if you are not sure, best to bin it as general waste. What you do recycle should be clean, dry and loose. Don’t mix different items, putting one in another.

Havant Council accept the following items:

Plastic bottles – cool drinks, milk, shampoo and cleaning product bottles. Lids and labels are not a problem but they should be empty and clean. They should also be squashed before replacing the lid. No spray or pump dispensers. What about bottles with drinking spouts?

Cardboard – Unlaminated cards, toilet and kitchen roll tubes, cereal packets and boxes. Wrapping tape and staples should be removed and larger boxes torn into smaller sizes. Wet and food soiled cardboad should not go into the bin. Food and drink cartons go into general waste.

Paper – Newspaper, magazines, junk mail, catalogues and envelopes including window envelopes. But not wet, soiled, shredded or laminated paper, gift wrapping, tissues, paper towels or photographs.

Cans – Drink and food cans, sweets and biscuit tins that have been rinsed clean.

Aerosols – Empty aerosols such as deodorant and air freshener sprays. But not camping gas canisters or aerosols with a hazard symbol (an orange and black skull and crossbones). For example oven cleaner. The containers should not be pierced or squashed and no plastic lids.

No Glass.

Breakfast Cafes

Not your traditional cosy Builders Cafe. But the English breakfasts at Mamawu’s in Nutbourne are as good as breakfast gets.

Breakfast in Emsworth

In addition to which, the menu offers customers the usual option of sandwiches, jacket potatoes, cakes, bakes and kids meals. They have also managed to sneak in a few Asian dishes making Mamawu just a little bit different.

The attention to detail. The commitment to quality making it…..just  different.
