THE OXFORD WINE CAFE
The Oxford Wine Company has taken over the former Summertown Wine Cafe site in South Parade, North Oxford following its closure in September 2012 and opened The Oxford Wine Café.
The Café is run by Louise Ferreira who has extensive experience in the on trade sector as well as good wine knowledge.
As we ship from all over the world we are able to bring wine from source and command competitive prices. As well as a changing range of boutique style wines by the glass, the Cafe also offers a full and varied range of wines by the bottle.
All wines are served in Riedel glassware and regular tasting events take place on the premises presented by Winemakers, Journalists and Masters of Wine (see Tasting Diary). In addition, the company's Theo Sloot also presents informal tastings at which customers are able to comment on new wines which may later form part of the changing by the glass range.
The Café's menu is available between 8.30am and 10.00pm and features a selection of quality dishes and a selection of fine teas and excellent coffee as before. Wi fi is available at the venue.
The Oxford Wine Café, 38 South Parade, Summertown, Oxford OX2 7JN, 01865236959, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open 8.30-11.00pm Mon-Sat, 10.00-10.00pm Sun

JAZZ AT THE OXFORD WINE CAFÉ
Every Sunday 6.30-9.00pm (free)
Since September we have been featuring the cream of the jazz scene from all over the South of England every Sunday evening in the Café. We present a different style of jazz every week, from gypsy through swing, latin and blues and many more styles besides. About two thirds are vocal acts and standard of the playing is impressively high. The evenings are proving very popular with our customers and there’s a great atmosphere in the back room with people enjoying quality music and wine together – surely a match made in heaven! Come along and see for yourself.
WINNER BEST WINE WHOLESALER OF THE YEAR 2013
The Oxford Wine Company has won the prestigious Best Wine Wholesaler of the Year award at the Harpers Wine & Spirit Awards held at The Honourable Artillery Company HQ in London last night, Monday 20th May.
It is the third year in a row that we have won this highly sought after award and the win reflects the hard work of Trade Sales Director Neil Gladding and his team who have been recognised yet again by top wine trade judges as the best in the independent sector of the wine trade.
Ted Sandbach MD said:“I’m very pleased to have won this award again and would like to congratulate the sales team on all their hard work.”

Talking Wine with Ted Sandbach - April
Researchers at Texas University have found that those who do not drink any alcohol have a higher mortality rate than those who drink heavily. The research concluded that those who drink moderately (2/3 drinks a day) had the lowest mortality rate. Just something worth pondering!!
The ruins of a wine cellar dating back to 1700BC have been unearthed in a Canaanite palace in Israel. The suggestion is that this is where the palace kept the good stuff - all in ceramic jars. Although there was not actual physical liquid within the residue a blend of ingredients were found such as honey, cinnamon, bark, cedar and mint. There appears to be a consistency in the 40 jars unearthed that suggest that this was a quality product reserved for special occasions. This just demonstrates the amazing sophistication of the time often referred to in ancient texts.
