This wine emporia was a great find when we moved to Surry. I had discovered it online and wanted to see the actual store. Their discription of being online gourmet independent wine merchants with a specialist wine shop, offering an extensive list of international fine and rare vintage red, white and rose wines as well as mixed wine cases, champagnes and spirits, including rare malt whisky, was spot on. What I really enjoyed was that they also offered wine courses, wine tastings and fine wine dinners. The first time I visited the store was for a wine tasting. I happened to wear one of my favorite choker collar necklaces that was made from Re-purposed zippers with chain links. It was perhaps a bit edgy, yet elegant. I was surprised at the number of women who came up to me at the end of the wine tasting to ask where I had bought it. Several thought it would be a perfecrt gift for their millennial daughters who lived in London. That amused me. Over the course of the next year, I would try to wear various chocker necklaces to events at the Arthur Rackham Emporia store. I think I became the de factor saleswoman in Surry for the online store, Siamm Patra, where I bought them. I almost had business cards made with the site's url so it would be easier to hand it out rather than writing it down on napkins and other scraps of paper. We have since move back to NYC. I miss the Arthur Rackham Emporia, but must admit the Big Apple does have its share of fine wine stores. I will miss the wine tastings with the delightful folks of Surry and the surrounding area.
