Focusing on wholesale wines and whisky in the past, the company is moving from it current location at Adelphi Distillery will plans to expand the business.

Located in Dalgety Bay, the new premises will provide space for tasting classes and the opportunity to sell directly to customers.

In a planning statement, L’Art du Vin said: “Excursions to the wine school and retail will be by appointment and many of these customers will be licensed trade staff.

“The proposed operation is not a High Street off-sales type of casual operation.”

Open 10am to 10pm Monday to Saturday, the school will offer between one and three classes per week, depending on demand.

Managing director of L’Art du Vin, Philippe Larue, said: “Over the last 12 years of working within the industry, we think that one of the most important criteria is to educate staff and explain why they should sell better wines.

“When we moved to the new premises, our intention was to push open that facility to private customers who want to learn more about wine. It’s a nice place to have a small group of people come by or to have pop up events, learning about matching food with wines.”

L’Art Du Vin in Dalgety Bay is set to open this autumn.
