Averys

Averys began in 1793 and over the years, the family has built its reputation as one of the UK’s most pioneering wine merchants. At the heart of what we do – and have done for over 220 years – is share our passion for wine. We love discovering wines with a story to tell – whether for everyday drinking or fine wines for the cellar. So, if you’re looking for ‘real’ wines, full of character and flavour, then welcome to Averys.

Cellier des Dauphins

Cellier des Dauphins wines hail from one of the world’s best wine regions – the Rhône Valley. Benefitting from wonderful weather almost all year round, their sun-drenched vines produce wines that embody the spirit and style of the Rhône Valley. Perfect for sharing with family and friends.

Corkk

Corkk is a specialist English wine retailer with a twist. Rather than being a marketplace, their Master of Wine, Clive Barlow, tastes many but curates just a few wines each month, slowly building their selection. Each wine is selected on merit, with Clive looking for quality and character, and wines which express the vineyard’s character and the skill of their winemaker.

Denbies Wine Estate

Denbies Wine Estate is England’s largest single estate vineyard. Family owned and run, Denbies vineyard was planted in 1986, and since then has become one of the largest wine producers in the UK. The estate lies in the heart of Surrey overlooking Box Hill, where Denbies produces an award-winning range of white, red and sparkling wines.

Errazuriz

Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Viña Errazuriz in 1870 in the Valle de Aconcagua, 100km north of Santiago. With cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, this is the ideal climate for growing grapes and it is here that Viña Errazuriz has been producing the highest quality Chilean wines for almost 150 years. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant, Eduardo Chadwick, who is the sixth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business.

Grange Estate Wines

The Grange, Hampshire is a family run wine business started by four siblings with a passion to produce exquisite sparkling wines. In 2011, on a south-facing slope of the Hampshire Downs overlooking the crystal-clear waters of the River Itchen, we planted Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. After 7 years of waiting, our first two wines, made only from grapes from our vineyard, are now ready.

Hattingley Valley

Hattingley Valley is a family owned business specialising in premium English sparkling wines. Located just North of Winchester, Hattingley Valley was established in 2008 and planted our first Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier vines. Our talented wine making team is led by Emma Rice and Jacob Leadley, both of whom trained at Plumpton College. Emma was awarded the prestigious title of Winemaker of the Year in 2014 and reclaimed this honour in 2016 to become the first woman to win this award twice!

James Hocking Wine

With over 20 years experience in the world of wine, specifically Californian Wine, James created James Hocking Wine to showcase the best that the Golden State has to offer.  Over the years James has gathered an intimate and respected knowledge of Californian Wine, taking part in Decanter tasting panels, Imbibe Sommelier Wine Award tastings, and is a certified WSET tutor.  With his ability to share his enthusiasm with everyone, wine buff or beginner,  he will introduce you to your new favourite wines.

Louis Jadot

From the tip of Chablis to the toe of Beaujolais, from regional, village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru wines Louis Jadot produces Burgundy and nothing but Burgundy. The familiar Bacchus head label has become the reliable stamp of quality and consistency from what can often be a confusing region.

Majestic

With a range of 800+ wines and Champagnes, friendly expert staff, free daily tastings and monthly wine events, Majestic makes shopping for wine fun, engaging and informative. Minimum purchase is 6 bottles (any 6 – think pick ‘n’ mix for grown ups!) and it’s free delivery to anywhere in UK mainland.

Quinta do Noval

Quinta do Noval is widely regarded as one of the leading lights in Port, and has always done things a little differently. Situated just outside Pinhao in the heart of the Douro valley, Quinta do Noval is a single estate port shipper with a focus on quality, terroir driven Ports and table wines.

Vranken-Pommery

Louis Pommery, the founder of our champagne house, came up with modern and fresh wines. This is the spirit that guided us when we set out to study the most expressive terroirs to produce sparkling wines around the world. A new fresh modern product, created for the english market.
