Did you know more Pinot Noir is grown in Germany than New Zealand? This and a number of other things surprised me on my recent trip to Germany.
Can you resist having a peek at our “before and after” photos of our shop and bar transformation in Ripon?
Do you decant wine prior to drinking? Our fine wine buyer, Des Tinline, is a fan of decanting but he knows this is not everyone's opinion and offers his thoughts on the subject.
As fellow wine and beer enthusiasts, we have a simple idea behind what we do...
To hand pick our way through the thousands of bottles out there and discover outstanding examples that are both true to their style as well as representing tangible value for money.
We're open to the public seven days a week with competitive rates for all manner of events and we supply trade customers too.
We offer advice and services for weddings, parties, business functions and plenty more, in fact, wherever wine might be desired!
We'd love to raise a glass with you too. At our regular in-store tastings you can discover for yourself our wine know-how, simply shared.
Shop online or pop in to our stores in Harrogate, Ripon and Collingham where you'll be sure of a friendly welcome, expert advice and, of course, some truly great things to choose from.
With delicious wines from £5 and the finest selection of bottled beers for miles around, Ake & Humphris is a great place to explore. We offer delivery within the UK, free for UK mainland orders over £99 and click and collect in store.
Whether you want a casual drop for any day, or something more special, we offer experiences and adventures in wine far beyond those found on a supermarket shelf.
Shop independent for a personalised service and better choice.
“Whenever I want something special to take to a dinner party I pop in for a bottle and it always comes with great advice and a bit of a tale. Something for every budget too and a much nicer experience than going to the supermarket!” Nicola Wilson, Harrogate. September 2014
