Fortitude Communications supporting Oxford Wine Group’s new venue

Oxford Wine Group has appointed Fortitude Communications to support the launch of an exciting new independent venue.

The Oxford Wine Cellar is set to open in the autumn, providing a unique venue for the city.

Based on the corner of the High Street and King Edward Street, Oxford’s newest bar will be based just a stone’s throw away from the group’s other city venue, Sandy’s Piano Bar.

The Oxford Wine Cellar will bring the popular concept of the group’s Jericho based venue Oxford Wine Café to the city.

Visitors to the wine bar will be able to choose from more than 200 different quality and affordable wines as well as a wide array of spirits and beers. Spread across two floors, the versatile venue will offer visitors a unique experience and will be open all day for coffee, light food and drinks.

Professional PR

George Sandbach, a director of the Oxford Wine Group, said: This is another significant investment in Oxford by our group and further demonstrates our commitment to delivering exceptional venues and experiences in the city. 

We wanted professional PR support to help us launch this fresh concept in Oxford and there’s only one go-to agency for this brief. Fortitude has a great reputation, understands our brand, the market, the media and our community and it’s great to be working together.”

Greig Box Turnbull, director of Fortitude Communications, said: Oxford Wine Group is a leading business that has an unrivalled reputation for providing exceptional wine and hospitality experiences in the city. 

We’re proud to have been the Group’s natural go-to-choice for PR and communications support and look forward to helping develop its narrative.”
