Chilled wine.

I will be staying in Victoria Rd for one night and planning to eat at Fatima's. Is there a shop nearby where I can buy some chilled wine as Fatima is BYO.

There’s a decent sized Sainsbury’s “local” only about 100m away.

My local Sainsbury's (full -sized) doesn't keep its white wine in a chill cabinet nor do any of my other local supermarkets, to my knowledge. If the OP is looking to purchase an already chilled bottle of wine and take it straight to the restaurant, he may be out of luck. Perhaps better to stick to red.

I wonder if it's a regional thing then Christabel, I can think of several retailers (both larger stores and the smaller 'convenience' stores) around me who have white wines on display ready chilled in fridges.

I can drink red but prefer white with a curry. I was hoping that there would be a small shop / offy somewhere nearby selling wine already chilled. I am staying in a B&B just for one night so have no way of chilling it myself. I can't drink a white unless it's nicely chilled.

Sorry if I'm too late with this reply.

When I have visited BYO Indian restaurants they have brought an ice water filled wine cooler to the table. OK you have to wait a few mins for the wine to chill down but it's better than warm wine.

If the supermarket does meal deals then they will usually have a white wine offer in the fridge that can be bought on it's own

So, there's good news and there's bad news. Sainsbury's have a wine fridge but the fridge is broken at the moment. Hopefully it will be fixed before I arrive in 3 weeks.
