Organic, sustainable and natural wines are the focus at Le Social, a wine shop and tasting room housed in a converted shipping container in Pollard Yard, Ancoats.
While much of their business is done through their online store, their walk-in shop is getting bigger and busier by the month. Head here to find small-scale producers chosen for their ethical business practices as well as the quality of their wine. They also sell low or no-alcohol alternatives to wine such as kombucha.
Owner Jerome puts on regular tasting events at Pollard Yard where you can sample a few bottles and hopefully take a few home. Originally from Nantes in France, he has many years experience in the wine trade so he knows his stuff and will happily give you recommendations according to your tastes.
You may have seen the Le Social name here and there – as well as the shop and tasting room, they stage pop-up bars, parties and tastings, and supply wines to local restaurants and bars including Common, Feel Good Club and General Store.
