About York Wines

About York Wines

We are one of Yorkshire's leading independent wine merchants, importers and wholesalers, based in the historic village of Sheriff Hutton, 10 miles North of York.

The majority of our wines are sourced directly from the vineyards which enables us to sell the best quality wines at the best prices. Many of the wines we offer are exclusive to our list.

Quality is the most important factor when it comes to the wines we list. Each wine needs to be a good representation of the wines from that a region and country.

We taste all the wines before we buy and stock them, and we taste each new vintage of every wine before we decide to continue with it. It's a hard life, but somebody has to do it! If a wine is not good enough or a vintage is not good enough then we will not buy it.

We carefully (and hopefully in straightforward terms,) describe our wines in order to help you find exactly the wines you require. For customers who would like additional information, we have a more detailed section with more detailed information on each of our wines.

We hold an extensive stock of wine that is constantly evolving, and we do have access to many more. We are not normally able to source single bottles (except for rare and specialist wines), but for cases or more - if the wines you are looking for are not here then please contact us and we will try to assist you.

We hope you will enjoy the results of our research when you have the opportunity to sample our wines.

Sourcing Our Wines

Now that things are returning to normal, we are once again getting the opportunity to travel both within the UK and overseas for wine sourcing trips. 

These formal trips are also supplemented by informal team tastings in the office and these take place on average about once a week, or when one of our suppliers calls in.
