If every cloud has a silver lining, then so too should every glass be stained by the remnants of a fine wine.That’s the gospel according to the owners at Mistral Wines. After finding their job situation shaken by you-know-what, the plucky team took the plunge and set up shop on Bonnington Road, selling tempting tipples from Europe and beyond. What really sets this plonk haven apart, however, is the lashings of love bandied towards smaller, independent suppliers, and their determination to shine a light on the grape-growing communities. Their website comes loaded with information and tasting notes, and their speedy doorstep drop-offs will have anyone within the city’s Bypass limits sorted within 24 hours. This summer will also see the kick-off of their weekend food menu, and we’ll be first in line to tuck into their vino-friendly platters when they come.
