LOCATION: Wincanton is a charming hillside market town conveniently situated just off the A303. It is well known for its racecourse and is officially twinned with Ankh-Morpork the premier city state in author Terry Pratchett's fantasy Discworld novels. The town contains many handsome period houses and staging inns together with an ever increasing number of new homes being built on the outskirts of the town. Also, the opening of the Hauser and Wirth Gallery and Arts Centre in nearby Bruton continue to bring ever increasing numbers of visitors to the area.

Divine Wines is a beautifully presented Grade II listed property situated in the heart of Wincanton. Upon entering the premises customers are immediately struck by the exquisite decoration and welcoming atmosphere. There is a traditional wooden bar servery with floor to ceiling display shelving offering an array of wines from around the world. Seating is arranged throughout the ground floor and extends out onto a wonderful walled courtyard. The owners accommodation is spread over the first and second floors and offers particularly generous living accommodation together with a delightful rooftop terrace. There is access to the maisonette through the cafe or separate front door which offers potential to convert some of the rooms to letting accommodation.
