About us

Since 2011 co-founder Julia Stafford has been spreading the word about English wine: tailoring tastings for the unconvinced, offering wine by the glass to enjoy out of a tiny shop in Borough Market, selling bottles to take away and dispatching cases for those in the know out of a pop-up in St Pancras and an bar in Devonshire Row.

Just a few years ago, such a concept seemed eccentric and brave, and maybe it was, but this passion was rewarded by winning the prestigious title of Specialist Wine Merchant of the Year and Best Local Wine Merchant of the year in the 2012 and 2013 Decanter Retailer of the Year Awards, respectively. ‘Quirky’, ‘brave’, ‘enthusiastic’, ‘ambitious’ and ‘genuine’ were all adjectives used by judges in describing the offering.

A lot has changed in the English wine industry, which is why we have scaled back the business to focus on small scale wholesale, tastings and events, where we can focus on a smaller selection of wines, include the amazing array of new spirits and have fun.
