More about us and the services we offer to the on-trade.
We are an independent family run business with a presence in Birmingham dating back to the early 1900’s, when we used to bottle our own Sherry! The company is still owned and run by the Connolly family and Chris Connolly is based at our wine shop on Dovehouse Parade in Solihull.
- We specialise in hand selecting all our wines from small independent or boutique winemakers and growers.
- Our wines are not found on the high street and they are imported directly into our cellars in Birmingham.
- Our excellent reputation relies on our attention to detail and keeping a close eye on the quality of our wines.
- Our independence provides us with the ability to work with small producers who are passionate about the wines they produce.
Sourcing high end wines is relatively simple, our expertise really come into play at a lower level, where we seek out wines that exceed expectations for their price level. We firmly believe our house wines to be some of the best house wines available to any pub, restaurant or venue.

Our goal is to help you make your business a success, so offering sale or return on listed wines can be a great help, we don’t see the need for you to sit on stock that isn’t moving. If it’s not selling, let us know and we’ll take it back and try something new. We also offer a range of event services, why not hold a wine quiz night? Or wine tasting dinner? We can come along and host the evening for you and we’ll only charge you for the wine.
