Quality Wines at Affordable Prices
AdVintage Wines was formed in 2004 to promote the enjoyment of quality wines at affordable prices. Our unique approach to sourcing wines means that we are able to offer small parcels of mature wines at prices you will not find anywhere else. We select our wines on the basis of an excellent price/quality ratio, often offering unusual wines from older vintages.
All of our wines come with a price and quality guarantee. We guarantee that you will not be able to find any of the wines we stock cheaper anywhere in the UK. You are welcome to do your own research on the internet for wine prices and we recommend the Wine Searcher tool for this, www.wine-searcher.com. Our quality guarantee means that if any of your wines are faulty (including corked wine), we will replace it or provide you with a credit on your next order.
Most of our wines are in the 5-20£ segment as we believe this is where you get the greatest value for your money. For wines below 5£ we suggest you go to your local supermarket as this is what they are best at. Wines at above 20£ are usually aimed at a smaller audience and do not always offer value for money. If you are looking for a specific wine we will be happy to help you locate it and through our network will often be able to acquire the wine for you at the best possible price.
We are able to keep our prices low because of our inventive buying and by keeping our overhead as low as possible. We do not operate a shop or have expensive offices, but we do take great care in storing the wines properly. Also, we reuse our wine boxes providing a saving of at least 2£ per case - as well as benefiting the environment.
AdVintage Wines is run on a hobby basis by Marleen Stumpel and Axel Gimsing, we both have full-time jobs but enjoy finding interesting wines and sharing them with you at affordable prices.
We hope you will enjoy our wines as much as we have enjoyed finding them!
