A Cambridgeshire village wine shop has been named the best in the county. The Wee Vinoteca at Burwash Manor picked up the Wine & Beer Specialist title at the 2024 Muddy Stilettos regional awards.

Wee Vinoteca also has an award-winning wine shop and bar in Hitchin, Hertfordshire and says its Cambridgeshire base in the village of Barton has a "small but ever-changing wine range" with a focus on value. Wines start at £10.

Wines on offer include classic Riojas and fine Bordeaux along with wines from lesser-known regions like Canada, Georgia or Japan. The shop also holds a range of wine tasting events, including "intimate tastings" for up to 10 people, supper clubs and Wine and Spirit Education Trust courses.

Owners say: "We believe that less is more, so at our Cambridge wine shop you’ll find a small, hand picked selection that changes regularly. This keeps things simple and helping you choose with confidence. All of our staff are passionate foodies who have undergone wine training so they can recommend the best options for you based on your preferences and budget."

The Wee Vinoteca is at The Dovecote, Burwash Manor Farm, New Road, Barton, CB23 7EY.
