About 'Frivolity'


Frivolity Bottle Shop is quite simply a Wine, Beer and Spirits shop in the village of Cockerton, Darlington with wine merchant credentials. ‘Frivolity’ hosts two monthly events, a tutored wine tasting and pop-up beer tap room. Also a registered wholesaler, so if you are a Bar or Restaurant in need of help with you wine list, drop us a line.

Frivolity Bottle Shop opened its door for the first time in July 2019. Owner David Tindale had clocked up 18 years’ experience of selling wine in Restaurants, Retail and in a Wholesale capacity. David went it alone in 2016 and ‘ground’ it out for over 3 years by himself before he realised his dream of a ‘bricks and mortar’ wine shop. First at festivals, providing wine bars and street food on a weekend and then later as the original owner of Market Hall Wines in Durham Indoor market.
