Our Story

INSPIRED BY GOOD WINE, GOOD FOOD & GOOD COMPANY

The Wee Vinoteca is all about keeping things simple: we have an ever-changing wee range of wines to suit all budgets, a simple menu of snacks to complement them, and a bar that feels like home.

We welcome families, babies and dogs, and look forward to having you over for good wine, good food, and good company.

OUR STANDARDS

Things we believe in

Always be Adventurous

Our aim is to introduce you to some seriously underrated (and sometimes undiscovered) wines.

Pairing is Caring

We are all about good wine and good food. Whether it’s to be enjoyed with our cheeseboard at the bar, or for a special meal you’re cooking at home, we can always recommend the perfect wine to go with it.

Informal but informed

At the Wee Vinoteca we pride ourselves in knowing our stuff but hate the idea of anything snobby or pretentious.

Less is More

To encourage exploration, we have a small hand picked selection of wines, which changes seasonally.

The Name

WEE: adjective SCOTTISH

1. little. – “when I was just a wee bairn”

VINOTECA: noun SPANISH
  1. Wine library
  2. Wine bar, wine store, wine mecca, emporium of luscious fermented grapes…basically, anything with wine in it. 

Meet Duncan

Duncan grew up in a family where food was at the heart of everything. The Gammies were that kind of family: always having people around for dinner, a barbecue hut with a pizza oven and rotisserie and fields full of family grown produce. 

The seeds of the Wee Vinoteca were sown during Duncan’s time as a Sommelier and Assistant Manager of a Michelin starred restaurant in Edinburgh. Not your stereotypical sommelier, he got a kick out of helping people find good value on the 400+ bottle wine list and encouraging them to try more unusual wines, rather than more expensive ones. Pop in the store and spend five minutes chatting with Duncan, you’ll realise not much has changed.

Meet Hannah

Hannah started out as a Receptionist at a 5-star hotel, before moving to the Event Department and becoming Events & Wedding Manager. She ensures all our events run smoothly, right up until the last guest leaves and the lights go out. 

After meeting in Scotland, Hannah and Duncan moved to Hertfordshire. While exploring the area they found the beautiful market town of Hitchin, a hot spot for local foodies and a place that loves to support independent businesses.

GET YOUR SWIRL ON

Watch Us In Action

The Wee Vinoteca is an award winning wine shop and bar located in the Hitchin arcade, just off the town square. Known for it’s ever changing wine list, knowledgeable staff, popular wine tasting events & delicious cheeses, this is a place for people to relax and explore. All wines available in the shop can be drank in our wine bar for a small corkage fee. 

When it’s good…it’s GOOD!
