Importer and Wholesaler of Fine Wines
Vicarage Wine Cellars

As specialist importers and merchants we have, over the years, built up close relationships with some of the leading winemakers of Europe and the New World. Most of our wines are imported direct from the estates and for many of our limited-production wines we are the sole UK agents.


We are not online wine sellers. We actually prefer to do business the old fashioned way, meeting our winemakers and customers in person.


We are proud to sell not only classics from top estates in Burgundy, Bordeaux, Rhône, Spain and Italy, but also some of the best examples of progressive winemaking from boutique wineries in The Americas and the Southern Hemisphere.

Trade and Wholesale

Please e-mail initial enquiries to us at:

We have a core range of wines from exceptional winemakers, with whom we have worked for years, but the mainstay of our business is in sourcing unique, direct-import wines for exclusive supply to our trade customers.

It makes no sense for you to sell the same wines as everyone else. Give us a brief and we find you the wine – in most cases we will negotiate with the winemaker and have something made specifically for you.

For this we go right back to the first stages of production, right to the grapes on the vine…

Vines- closeup

We work closely with our winemakers and we get to know each and every wine intimately, from the early work in the vineyards, to grapes, to bottle, to glass.

In this way we offer our trade accounts the very best in quality allied to exclusivity in supply.

Large stocks of fine wine


A large collection of fine wine is cellared on site at The Old Vicarage, all of which is our own stock and of impeccable provenance. For trade customers seeking larger quantities of mature fine wines, we act as brokers for a number of investors and merchants.

We also buy in complete collections of fine and rare wines from long established private cellars.

We have extensive cellaring facilities at perfect temperature and can store large stocks of fine wine for customers wishing to keep wines on reserve.

Private Customers

As well as selling our specialist wines to high-end trade merchants, we also supply private clients and fine wine investors.

Many of our restaurant customers buy wine from us, of course. If you like what you drink in the restaurant and just want to take away the odd bottle or two, then anything on the main restaurant list can be purchased at retail price to take home.

To take advantage of our wholesale case rates, the minimum order is one case of 12 bottles…however this may be a mixed case of several wines if you wish. We also offer a range of specially priced mixed tasting cases and composite cases on different themes. Please contact us for details of these and other special offers.

Reserve stocks maturing The lowest rates apply for customers planning long-term cellars or purchasing in advance of the optimum drinking dates. If you want to lay wines down, we offer en primeur rates in advance of shipment. We are always able to source parcels of the more difficult to obtain limited-allocation wines and rarer vintages for our customers.

Fine and rare wines, older vintages and investment wines for long-term keeping can be supplied either duty suspended in customs bond or as duty-paid stock, and if you don’t have the space at home, we will store them for you free of charge. We arrange delivery all over the UK.

If you are interested in buying wine, whether just a bottle or two, or building up a complete cellar plan, we would be delighted to talk to you.
