In 2009 Exel Wines officially began as a trader of fine wines, largely in Bordeaux First Growths. However, prior to this, having started off in the restaurant industry, wine was already an important part of our life. Nevertheless, the ambition to venture in to the retail world developed and our contacts, industry knowledge and restaurant experience brought together a desire to source and make available those wines often only found on restaurant wine lists so that our customers could now also enjoy them at home.
Over time the restaurant became our first retail outlet, and we then took on warehousing premises from which to develop the online business. Since then, it has been a steady progression to get our business to where it is today as one of the UK’s foremost retailers of quality wines.
We still hold on to the same passion for great wine that started the company all those years ago, as well as our founding principle to offer clients the very best quality:value ratio. Whether is it an entry level wine, or a fine first growth, we will always ensure that each pound goes as far as possible.
