A new wine bar has opened on one of Macclesfield's most characterful streets.
La Dulce Vendimia, opens on the iconic hilly cobbles of 19 Church Street, replacing The Wreckless Vape Company (which recently moved to Mill Street).
Emily Wilson has combined her love of Spain and wine to create a cosy but trendy wine bar in the heart of Macclesfield.
The bar's name comes from a Spanish translation of 'Sweet Vintage', a previous business she had.
"The wines by the glass will be changed every month," Emily said.
"That will keep things fresh and get people to try new things. We offer wines to sit in and wines to take out as well.
"We also have corkage on the bottle so you can sit in and have anything and buy the rest of the bottle to away."
La Dulce Vendimia has up to 25 seats inside. Emily is also hoping to do a yard up outside for two more tables.
There will be a main focus on Spanish wines, but more from around the world as well.
"I want to offer something a but different but also offer familiar choices as well like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc," she added.
"I've got an Argentinian Malbec but I've got something a bit more unique like a Aligoté or Burgundy wines from France. Aligoté in particularly is renowned for their Chardonnay and is coming up in the wine world, it is really tasty.
"Brazilian and Hungarian wines are a little different as well. We have lots of vegan, organic and alcohol-free wines as well.
"We also have spirits, some Macclesfield beers with RedWillow and SiDa cider. I've also invented some cocktails all under £9 as well.
"As of Thursday [May 12], we've also introduced cheese and meats as well.
"Church Street is quite an up-and-coming g area of the town, it has got beautiful views with the valley as well.
"I fell in love with it, and the space is a perfect size as well."
If you can't pop in this weekend, Emily will be hosting a chocolate and wine tasting event on Thursday 26.
Pop in or email [email protected] to book a place. £30 per ticket.
Emily hopes to have something for everyone, from reasonably priced wines to the more indulgent finer wines. The bar is card only.
La Dulce Vendima is open five days a week from Tuesday to Saturday.
Tuesday to Thursday will be 12pm to 7pm.
Friday to Saturday will be 12pm to 11pm.
They will be open once a month on Sundays for the Treacle Market, from 12pm to 5pm.
