|It’s not easy being a Wine Merchant in these unsettled times. You need a depth and breadth of knowledge (not only of wine but of the mysterious and unusual way in which the industry works), a steely desire to succeed, a work ethic that keeps you going through hell, high water and hangover, the patience of Jobe and the physique of a Demigod..!!!
As Wales’ largest independent wine merchant, we have all those things and more, consistently at our disposal. Over the last nineteen years we have built up a reputation not only for supplying some of the best and most prestigious hotels, restaurants and gastro-pubs Wales has to offer, but in also supplying a service that is second to none. We currently have a fleet of eight vans servicing our accounts from Pembrokeshire in the west to Newport in the east. Our Sales team work extremely hard doing tastings, staff training courses, emergency deliveries or simply sampling the fine food and drink on offer at their customers’ establishments. It’s tough, but someone has to do it..!!
To compliment this side of the business we have a large Wine Warehouse on Walter Road in Swansea stocked to the brim not only with a vast selection of wines (from over £500 per bottle to buy 6, get 6 free offers) but with cheerful and knowledgeable staff who are always more than willing to help with wine selection. We always have wine open to taste so you are more than welcome to pop in and try something new. It’s here in the shop that we also hold our legendary quarterly wine tastings, where a large and varied selection of wine is available. Indeed, these events have proved so popular that we’ve had to make it ticket only, so when you see the posters up in the shop windows make sure your name is down on the list – you certainly don’t want to miss out!
With the expansion of our internet business and the recent redevelopment of our website we’re reaching an even wider audience. We’re one of the largest suppliers of Cloudy Bay and Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne anywhere in the UK, and our fast and efficient courier service speeds cases of wines all over mainland Britain every day. It’s so easy to order with the click of a mouse and the site is incredibly secure, so people know they can order with confidence and, in most cases, get their wine the next working day.
So come up and see us sometime and try something new. After all, life is too short to drink bad wine!
