NEW – find your nearest independent wine merchant – from our listings of over 600 independent wine merchants see the nearest 10 specialist wine retailers to your postcode – here
We have recently updated our UK map of Independent Wine Merchants (updated May 2013).
This does not claim to be comprehensive, and some merchants are on-line only – so you may not be able to visit, but might benefit from cheaper local delivery arrangements – we always suggest a phone call before making a special journey to check what arrangements or opening times may be.
Many also offer tastings, either at their base or in other venues. We would always recommend merchants who are knowledgeable and enthusiastic – a tasting or a chat with the merchant will usually help to make the right choices.
The map features specialist independent wine merchants, although some have cleverly included gourmet foods or delicatessen or even a café or wine bar.
If you know of a good local independent specialist wine merchant or a good wine bar let us know and we will try to include them, which might help other wine lovers to discover them, support their business and help to stem the tide of big brands and big supermarkets which dominate the market.
