About Us

We are an independent Wine & Spirits Business based in Herefordshire with a small but select team, all of whom have a keen interest in all things Wines, Champagnes and Spirits. We offer a unique and exclusive range of products; a world-wide wine selection from your everyday drinking wines, to the more elite fine wines and our extensive, well researched (and well sampled) collection of champagnes. We are constantly updating our products and are always on the lookout for something a little quirky and different that may not be available elsewhere.

Our parent business, Saxtys Bar, Restaurant & Club is where our e-commerce operation first started and has expanded into the busy online retail business we have today. Established for over 30 years, Saxtys is Hereford’s premier independent venue, situated in the heart of the historic City. Saxtys itself was established in 1977 as a Wine Bar and we took it over in 2001. Ever since then we have built up a reputation not only for our restaurant, bar and nightclub, but also for our regular events that we hold, ranging from DJ nights to cocktail nights and of course, our infamous wine tastings - taking Saxtys customers old and new back to the heart of where our brand started: Wine!

We are a family run business and have been in the licensed trade for nearly 300 years, originally known as the "Symonds Cider and English Wine Company" - our surname is still on the "Symonds" cider brand, now owned by Heineken. The current generation has literally grown up in the trade, giving us considerable knowledge and experience of trends, brands and products, not to mention buying and selling Wines, Champagnes and Spirits. You can rest assured that when you buy from us, you are buying from a trusted, reputable, knowledgable brand with long established industry credentials and a real passion for what we do.
 
Our small but dedicated team of staff have all worked for us for a number of years and know our business inside out. Several of them are WSET qualified and they all actively try and improve their knowledge about our products and make sure they try lots of exciting new things so they can advise you when you contact us. They all have their own tastes and favourites!
 
As a family run business, we pride ourselves on being able to offer you not only a great atmosphere in our venue, but also a first class, professional yet unpretentious service, bringing you quality products for the very best price and in a personal and friendly manner. Our passion has always remained with wines and we personally select and research all the products we sell; often directly from the producers themselves, meaning we can source many products at the very best prices by cutting out the middle man, and passing the savings straight on to you. As well as buying for ourselves, we also source wines, champagnes and spirits for our sister business; Neville Symonds Associates Event Bars (you may have seen our NSA event bars around the country at many well known shows and events - find out more here: : www.eventbars.co.uk
 
This has given us considerable buying power and a great direct relationship with many of the producers and shippers directly. Again, allowing us to secure superb savings when we buy our products which we can pass on to our customers. We use a well trusted courier, Interlink, a local franchise whose local depot is within a couple of miles of our location and who are always on hand to help with queries - see our delivery information here: Delivery Information

Delivery Information We can guarantee that - to the best of our ability - your orders will be sent to you swiftly and efficiently, and most importantly, safely. All meaning that you can sit back and relax, knowing that your wines are on their way to you and in most cases, will be received the next working day. If you are picking up from Saxtys itself, our friendly staff will be more than happy to chat to you about your wines. If you are looking for a quantity of wine for a special event, we can also provide wines, champagnes and glassware on a large scale, such as for private functions or weddings and we are happy to arrange tastings by appointment. If there is a particular wine you would like us to try and source (if we can get it, we will) - just ask us. We can also cater for large corporate orders, with delivery to one place or to many, again - please do contact us to find out what we can do for you.

 

Simply call us and have a chat!  If you have any queries or questions about any of the products listed on our website, please do not hesitate to get in touch either by our email or phone.  We are always happy to help, giving advice or even personal recommendations. You can guarantee when you call, you will be speaking to a real person, who loves Wine and Champagne as much as you do!  Meet our Team here.
