About Wine Discoveries
Wine Discoveries is one of the UK's new band of home delivery wine merchants. Here is an introduction to the company, our philosophy and how we started.
Wine Discoveries is born
Fed up with disappointing wines on the high street and finding the top chateaux wines over priced, we headed off to France and started bring home wine for friends and family. Word spread about our ability to sniff out new finds and Wine Discoveries was born, initially delivering by case to customers in Sussex, Kent and London.
We ran some great tastings with early customers and their friends and the number of winemakers grew from 12 to over 40. Jancis Robinson MW, Joanna Simon and Jonathan Ray gave our wines some very positive reviews. The website was launched in 2004 and people started to buy our wines from as far afield as the Isle of Skye and Cornwall. We deliver anywhere in the UK by the case with our courier partner.
Great wines from small producers
After several years of tasting and travelling, we are convinced that hand crafted wines made slowly by growers have more complex and rewarding flavours than wines made on an industrial scale. Think baker's bread, real ale and home grown veg versus processed, big brand alternatives. These are the wines you stumble across on holiday but can't find back home! We only work with independent winemakers who grow their own grapes and make their own wine in an environmentally friendly way.
Wine Discoveries Shop at Forest Row
We opened our first shop in Forest Row, East Sussex in 2009 enabling customers to buy by the bottle rather than the case.
