The on-trade is where our roots are and we never forget that our wines have to earn their living. They need to achieve the right margins, people have to love drinking them and they have to be in your wine racks when you need them.
We offer first-rate examples of the classic styles as well as more unusual contemporary stars. Wines that are easy to drink and keep customers coming back. And we try to avoid wines that can be seen on the high-street: we even have a trade-only list of wines that are never offered to private customers.
Our customers don't pay extra to enjoy the service of a local, independent merchant: as a member of perhaps the best buying group in the country we're competitive with the biggest national chains, and we offer unbeatable value.
We appreciate that restaurants have to keep wine stocks to a minimum: space is needed for tables, not storing wine, and it's crucial to avoid tying up money in cellars. Yet you don't want to run out! The solution is an enthusiastic, reliable, free, local delivery service that can react to emergencies, allowing you to stock just what you need, and no more.
We're here to help you to sell more wine: our intimate and long-standing knowledge of the market in Kent enables us to give expert advice on effective selling prices. We're happy to help match wine with your food to put together a unique and distinctive wine list. And of course we'll be happy to train and enthuse serving staff to help them improve sales.
