A bit about us:

Our story:

London Wine Shippers was founded by Christopher Wells in 1975. Though he started out broking mainly fine wine in Lots Road, Chelsea, by 1980 the business had morphed into one of the first ever UK wine warehouses. Despite the fact that it prospered in the heady (and slightly bouffant) 80's, the rent predictably shot up (along with the shoulder pads) and the business moved to its current premises in Battersea in 1995 This proved to be a smart tactic: it has scaled and traded successfully - in its South London home - for nearly 25 years.

Ultimately, three core values remained at the heart of the business since it's inception, whatever the borough:

Quality, value and service.

2019 heralds an exciting rebirth. London Wine Shippers is now under new ownership and management, but these core values remain unchanged and we will continue to drive the ongoing development and growth of the business.

The new management team are all seasoned wine trade professionals, who bring a wealth of experience and passion to the business.

Our portfolio

With taste and quality at the forefront of the business, we’ve kept the best from the established portfolio and added a new selection of exquisite – and delicious –  wines from award winning wineries and wine makers along with adding a sprinkling of additional, quality wines to the portfolio, some new wonderful  

organic and biodynamic wines, as well as new beers and spirits.

We hope we will refresh and reward every palate, whilst making sure we have all the usual core wines covered.

Service is our hallmark

We aim to cater for all - no matter whether you’re a restaurant, hotel, public house, caterer or private individual, our core values remain the same: you can rely on the same core services:

We are proud to offer an intelligent, knowledgeable and courteous service: timely delivery, additional services including glass hire, provision of ice and ice bins, sale or return, glass washing when required, and we can also offer staff training sessions.

We hope we can guide you through all the steps of planning your event or wine list.

Going the extra mile

Right now, we’re revamping and refurbishing the warehouse and the doors will be open to host exclusive tastings and events as soon as possible.

In the meantime, whether you’re in the trade, a consumer or simply just love wine as much as we do, please stay in touch for updates.
