Wine merchants celebrated in Small Business Saturday campaign
A husband and wife-owned wine merchants in Oakham, Rutland, which specialises in importing wine from Italy, has been recognised by Small Business Saturday.
Bat and Bottle, owned by Ben and Emma Robson, has been named among the 100 small businesses in the UK to be celebrated by Small Business Saturday, the campaign that culminates in the UK’s dedicated day for small businesses on December 3.
The couple founded Bat and Bottle in 1994 from their kitchen table, just after getting married, with a plan to sell cricket bats as well as interesting wines. The cricket side has come and gone, but the passion for wine remains.
