Second Wine Boutique shop due to open in Northumberland
by Iain Laing, The Journal, August 30th 2011
BROTHERS Michael and Gareth Bateman have just opened their second wine shop and are preparing to franchise the business they began in Northumberland last year.
Michael, a former manager of the luxury Samling hotel in the Lake District, and his brother have found a keen following for their Wine Boutique shop in Alnwick.
And now they are opening up their second branch, among the food stores and delicatessens at Heighley Gate Garden Centre in Morpeth.
“We were really pleased by how popular the shop in Alnwick has been. It has been phenomenal. So we thought we would open another so people can choose some good wine when they buy their local produce,” said Michael.
