Yachts, wine and new beginnings

Wine and cheese night


As you know, we’re all about the British here at The Mantique so our wine and cheese evening was no exception! Guests enjoyed English sparkling wine from Hattlingley Wines along with local Hampshire cheeses. The wine tasting was provided by our friends at Toscannaccio and Cat did a great job of keeping glasses filled whilst sharing some surprising facts about Hattingley’s award winning wines. Maybe a little too good a job as my head was a little fuzzy the next day…

Why I’m sponsoring a yacht at Southampton boat show

You may or may not know that before I opened The Mantique I was a professional sailor. Bit of a change in direction! I absolutely love running the shop but I do miss being out on the water every week.

So when I was approached about putting a team together for the Ladies Cup at Southampton Boat Show - how could I resist?!

This one day event is being held on Tuesday 18th September and I need some awesome ladies to join our team. No sailing experience is necessary, just be prepared for lots of fun! This is a great opportunity to connect with other local business women and experience something a little different. The cost is £220 and includes breakfast, lunch, all sailing gear, entry to boat show and a drinks reception after the sailing. You can find out more and sign up here.

Something new is on its way...

Have you heard the rumours?

There may or may not be a new shop opening in Winchester very soon…

That new shop may or may not be of particular interest to the ladies…
