Alpine Wines – Fab selection, but I particularly love their range of Austrian and Swiss wine.

Croatian Fine Wines – One of the largest and most interesting lists of premium Croatian wines you can buy in the UK.

gvino UK – Georgian wine specialist who have some fantastic Qvevri method wines. My favourite is their Vazisubani Estate Qvevri Saperavi red wine.

ginVino – Armenian wine specialist offering Signature Selection mixed cases of wine. Some of the finest quality Armenian wine I’ve tasted.

The WineBarn – As a German wine fan, these guys were a brilliant discovery!


Of course, if you’re after unusual wines, my wine merchant Novel Wines is shipping UK-wide with no minimum order and free delivery over £95.


Tanners Wine Merchants – Long running quality merchant with a vast array of delicious wines at great prices.

Vinvm – Wine merchant with superb customer service and some really interesting wines, including Chinese wines.

Yapp Bros – Still one of my favourite wine merchants for French wines, especially from the Rhone or southern France.
