A new flagship French wine and beer store is set to open in Northampton on Monday January 17, making it the first of its kind in the UK.

Wines and Beers will open at Mr Grants House – the former Ask Italian restaurant – in St Giles Square next week.

the Chronicle and echo Photographer Kirsty Edmonds came on Friday, January 14, to get a glimpse of the newly renovated building ahead of its grand opening.

Harriet Poupinel, from Northampton, and her French husband Florian returned to the town to open the store after living together for years in Bordeaux, France.

The business is a cross between a shop, a bar and a charcuterie that offers hundreds of products including hundreds of different wines, beers, spirits, a range of charcuterie and cheeses to enjoy in store or to take away.

The upper floor of the building will be used as a space for “masterclasses”, tasting sessions and live music, while the front terrace will provide outdoor hospitality.

Ahead of the opening, Harriet said: “We’re really looking forward to opening. It’s going to be a big day. The first 150 people to visit the shop will get a free welcome lager.

“Vins et Bières is a place where you can be yourself. We have tried to make it a pleasant, comfortable and warm setting where you can come as you are and feel at home. “

Harriet said the tasting room is complete and customers can register now for the gin history masterclass on Saturday, January 22.
