Vine Wine, run by Paddy Magill, is a small independent wine merchant based in Somerset. Paddy set up the company 2015, having realised that there was a place in the market for a good reliable wine merchant who could offer good honest wines at good honest prices. The creative portfolio showcases Paddy’s broad knowledge within the world of wine, gained from over 30 years experience working within both the wholesale and retail sides of the trade as a buyer and a retailer. The exciting wine list reflects his intuitive understanding of today’s market. It offers a range of characterful wines to suit the style, budget and palate of his clients. For events, such as weddings/funerals and birthday celebrations, he offers all wines on sale or return and a free glass hire service. He enjoys developing bespoke wine cellars for anyone who wishes to create their own wine portfolio. He hosts regular wine tastings where he offers the opportunity for clients to taste and discover new and exciting wines from all corners of the world. Paddy also hosts wine courses for private or corporate clients, which is a great way to entertain friends or clients. His extensive wine list enables him to work with hotels, pubs and restaurants to create tailor made wine lists that are innovative and interesting. He is able to offer a country wide delivery service which is free within a 60 mile radius of his Somerset based cellars.
I’ve a wealth of experience working in the UK and abroad in decorating and interior design. I can draw on this practical knowledge as well as creating schemes to any budget. I enjoy working with clients to realise and enhance their ideas. I believe in creating schemes that are a collaboration of my client’s vision and my expertise.
I take great satisfaction in getting a top-quality look for a keen price, problem solving and working closely with a pool of expert tradesmen and specialists, many of whom I’ve known for years, as well as using my trade accounts, to create my client’s vision.
As a speciailst decorative painter I can create a myriad of bespoke textures. Whether it is leather, woodgraining, or marble, the only restriction is your imagination. There can also be a hint of glitter or shimmer anywhere!
I am happy to take on whole projects or fit in as a consultant or sounding board. Contact me to discuss your project.
I run language courses in coffee shops in and around Somerset. I teach through conversation as this builds confidence and helps to put students in realistic situations. Each group is treated according to its individual needs and the courses develop organically as a result.
In addition to these courses I offer a monthly online magazine which arrives straight in your inbox. So no paper wasted! The magazine covers a range of topics from grammar to cultural differences, jokes, art, sport, music and an up -to -date article from La Corriere Della Sera, one of Italy’s most important newspapers. This is great for anyone learning Italian and for Italian learners of all levels.
We run study holidays in the beautiful Byzantine city of Ravenna, on the East Coast of Northern Italy. Ravenna has an extraordinary history, sporting fourth century mosaics, Dante’s tomb and some wonderful architecture from the Byzantine period, as well as being only ten minutes by car from the sea!
