The past and present

Backed by the C&C group, Bibendum consists of three trading companies: Bibendum Wine (focused on the On Trade), Bibendum Off Trade and Walker & Wodehouse (supplying independent merchants and wholesalers). 

In 2019, we teamed up with Ireland's largest wine merchant Gilbeys, in an exciting partnership that combines the best of Bibendum's premium, artisanal wines with the Gilbeys brand that customers in Ireland already know and love. We now supply the Republic of Ireland as 'Bibendum with Gilbeys' and Northern Ireland as 'Bibendum'.

Founded in 1982 by a group of wine-loving friends, our mission and spirit remains the same to this day. We may have moved two doors down, but Primrose Hill's Regents Park Road is still very much our home.
