Brassica Mercantile has the perfect essentials for summer picnics, whether up on Eggardon or down at Burton Bradstock. Yesterday saw the exciting arrival of Bagnums (http://www.legrappin.com) . If you read the Sunday Times then you will already have heard of "Bagnums" (they were voted as 'Getting Hot' on their Style barometer).  If not, these are magnums in a bag - 1.5 litres of fine artisanal wine from Burgundy.

The white Chardonnay is perfect with fresh fish or the Rose as a lovely accompaniment to antipasti. These innovative bags can be squeezed into your rucksack or carried by the neat handle. The wine stays fresh for weeks and reduces on the recycling.

In addition to Bagnums, we have relishes made by the restaurant, fabulous canvas cooler bags, delightful enamel plates and mouthwatering chocolate for sale.
