    About Us

    OUR HISTORY

    We 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. 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.

    OUR CUSTOMERS

    Whilst we are primarily a Wine Merchant to the hotel and restaurant trade, proudly supplying some of the finest establishments in London and the surrounding counties, we also have a dedicated network of private clients UK-wide.

    OUR SERVICE

    At Wineservice we take great pride in the level of service we provide. We hope that the combination of our excellent product range, personal service, consultancy and training will ensure a long and successful relationship with all who choose to work with us. Our team is on hand with any recommendations or to answer any questions, to ensure customers make the most of the wine buying experience. Due to the coronavirus, we are currently waiving our delivery fee UK-wide for full case purchases, and providing non-contact deliveries in accordance with government guidelines.

    Testimonials

    We have worked with Wineservice since 1989, and the relationship has developed from supplying a single bottle of Chateau Tabuteau Bordeaux for a guest, to becoming our company’s leading wine supplier. Over the years, we have owned and operated other hotels including The Richmond Gate in Richmond, King Edwards Place near Swindon, The Elvetham in Hampshire and Hotel Chateau Tilques in Northern France, and with each new venture Wineservice was able to adapt, support and supply our venues without issue.

    Over and above the basic requirement to deliver the correct wine, on time and at the right price, it’s the additional advice, support, research and training that Wineservice offer their clients is what makes the difference and why The Petersham Hotel Group, without hesitation would recommend Wineservice to both trade and private clients alike

    Greville Dare, Managing Director, The Petersham Hotel

    Horsted Place has worked with Wineservice for many years and we very much value their friendly personal service and helpful, knowledgeable advice.  As a small country house hotel with a reputation for fine dining but without a dedicated sommelier, it is reassuring to know that our wine list is being wisely managed and will satisfy and appeal to our wide ranging clientele.   A willingness to assist with staff training and product knowledge is also much appreciated.

    Elizabeth Brown, Hotel Manager, Horsted Place

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with Wineservice for over 20 years during which time we have enjoyed a reliable, personal and flexible relationship. Nick and his team are always willing to offer advice and service our requests through their extensive and varied wine list. We’ve also hosted many successful wine dinners over the years alongside the wine makers themselves. These evenings are now highly sought-after by our clients!

    Andrew Russell, Owner, The Cat Inn

    I have been a customer of Wineservice for almost a decade and have nothing but good things to say. Being a small company in comparison to the big national drink suppliers, they provide an individual service with close attention to detail and flexibility to all demands. The Winesevrice team are highly knowledgable: from the account managers to the drivers. Furthermore, Wineservice have helped me to secure several deals directly with vineyards and distributors to fit the needs of our business, almost always reducing the price against the “big boys!” and increasing the quality.

    Joe Collier, Director, No1 Lounges

    It makes a huge difference to work with a supplier who is organised, punctual and above all ready to go the extra mile when required to help myself and the hotel.
