Connolly's Hits the News

March 16, 2012

The news of Connolly's expansion seems to be capturing people's imagination, so much so that we are featured in this week's Birmingham Post.

If you haven't heard about the new Connolly's outlet then here is a little run-down of what is happening.

Chris and Tania, our illustrious leaders, have snapped a fantastic retail opportunity on the Dovehouse Parade in Olton, Solihull. The leases are signed, planning permission granted and the builders are on the case.
The shop will carry the full Connolly's range and we are busy hunting out exciting new wines to add to the shelves. This in addition to the extended hours we will be operating will make it the perfect destination to stock up the cellar.

One of the most exciting things about the new Olton premises is The Tasting Room, a purpose-built space above the shop to house our increasing programme of events and, something we are really looking forward to, Connolly's Wine School.

We hope to open the doors in early May.

Our existing shop, on Livery Street in Birmingham City Centre, will continue to trade as usual.

It started early on a Saturday in June. I’m minded to say that it disturbed my lie-in but it was way earlier than that that my phone first pinged to announce the arrival of a new website order. (I wonder if Jeff Bezos has the same app on his phone?). Ignored it, rolled over and 5 minutes later it went again. And again. And etc, etc. Finally, before switching the thing off, curiosity got the better of me and I opened up the online shop to find a stream of orders for a wine that I fell in love with 2 years ago but that we had failed to make much headway with – Coteaux du Giennois, Terre de Silex from Clement & Florian Berthier,

Although the world has been turned upside down of late, Covid-19 hasn’t interrupted our Captain Kirk approach to wine-buying – seeking out new wines, new spirits and beers, boldly drinking what no man has drunk before. Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration
