Our Story

An Englishman, a Frenchman, and the Queen of Chipstead are taking on the wine world one bottle at a time!

Thomas opened The Grape Variety in Spring 2018 when it was just a wine shop. Quickly the demand for a quiet place for the people of Chipstead and its surrounds to enjoy a glass of wine grew. Thomas was joined by Matthieu from Burgundy, whose exceptional knowledge of wine and love of passing this knowledge on has won him fans from far and wide. Catherine, a local Chipstead lady with a passion for people and parties, brought expertise from industry to bring you champagne tastings, scalextric racing afternoons & pizza evenings Her dedication to the community has meant there are strong links between TGV and the rest of the Chipstead Village. Private events, parties and giving local Mums a safe place to meet are just some of the things she does.

What started as a dream for them all has been realised in a little gem that The Grape Variety Wine Bar has become.

We look forward to seeing you all for a drinkie in our little wine bar very soon.

Best wishes
The Grape Variety Team.
