Our Story

Wineservice have shipped and traded in fine wine and spirits from around the world since 1979 and are well-known for our expertise, knowledge and reliability in wine wholesale. Whilst we are primarily wine merchants to the hotel and restaurant trade, we also service private clients too. Take a look at our wines list, as well as our pre-selected wine cases for private individuals.

As an independent wine merchant, we are not reliant upon agencies and are therefore able to offer unbiased advice and flexibility. Most of our wines are derived from family-owned estates, often steeped in history so we can confidently curate a wine list that is unique and inviting to all palates.

At Wineservice we take great pride in the level of service we provide. We hope that the combination of our excellent product range, service, consultancy and training will ensure a long and successful relationship with all who choose to work with us.
