A unique wine shop which offers eco-friendly refillable bottles has celebrated its 1,000th top-up.

Reno Wine moved to its premises on Market Street in Wymondham in July and has since become a hit with wine-lovers.

The shop, which also stocks a range of vegetarian, vegan and biodynamic grapes, charges £2 for a reusable bottle and £5.95 to fill it from one of the taps.

And in October, Roger Percival, of Fundenhall, became the 1000th customer to top up his bottle.

The Spire Solicitors partner received a book token from nearby Kett’s Books as a thank you for supporting the concept.

Chris White, owner, said: “This is a great milestone which demonstrates the support that shoppers from Wymondham and surrounding villages have provided for our new venture. I’m really pleased that our customers are enjoying the wines I’ve sourced for them. It’s very satisfying that the concept is so popular.”
