A little about Connolly’s

Forget those cliched images about the crusty old wine merchants rooted in the past. We’ve got plenty of tradition, but we are a vibrant, modern firm aiming to bring our customers the best. Connolly’s Wine Merchants Ltd is a truly independent outfit, carefully selecting and shipping wines from all over the world to Birmingham. We have been family owned and run since 1976 and continue to provide a personal, flexible and comprehensive service to all our customers.

In an age of global brands, call centres and supermarket dominance, the emphasis at Connolly’s remains focussed strongly on the individual. 

Our own independence provides us with a flexibility – if we like a wine and it meets our criteria in terms of quality and value, we buy it then and then. Wherever possible we deal directly with growers, most of whom we have come to know through personal visits to the vineyards.
