How we work with Independent Merchants

Having started life as an independent wine retailer (we had a shop at our North London HQ from 1982 until 1999), we are passionate about supporting this sector.

With the demise of several national wine chains, independent merchants have never been more important. They keep quality wine on our high streets, selling interesting bottles with passion and knowledge.

We have a broad portfolio of wine – several of which are exclusive to the independent merchant sector – and focus on providing quality and value at all levels. Our range includes commercially popular wines as well as more artisan, boutique producers, and our trade fine wine service can supply rare, old vintages of the very best from Bordeaux, Burgundy and beyond. Our Market Insights team can also help you profile drinkers in your area and tailor your range accordingly.

Our dedicated team of Account Managers covers the whole of the UK so there is always someone local to support your business. In addition, our Sales Operations and Customer Services teams are always on hand to ensure you get exactly what you need, when you need it.

We offer a wide range of services including staff training for customers that require it, including WSET qualifications for both wine (up to Level 3) and spirits (Level 1 only).
