WELCOME TO REAL WINES!

We sell only wines which are of excellent quality at their price, which taste of where they come from, and which we would (and do!) happily drink ourselves.

WINES FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON

STAR BUYS OF THE MONTH!

WHAT MAKES REAL WINES SPECIAL?

Our goal is to take you on a vinous adventure; to introduce you to wonderful, new and exciting wines you would not discover elsewhere.

We have a particular passion for biodynamic wines and wines made from very old vines – wines which for us best reflect the true taste of their “terroir.”

We import an extensive range of wines from many of the best family-run “boutique” producers around the world.

We have particular strengths in the following wine regions; France, Portugal, Northern Spain, England, Australia, New Zealand and Oregon.

We have close relationships with some of the wine world’s most classic and respected producers such as Lopez Heredia Riojas and Charles Heidsieck Champagnes

We are specialists in sourcing fine wines and offer a range of exclusive fine wine services.

All our wines are personally selected by Paul Liversedge, Switzerland’s second Master of Wine and one of only around 370 in the world.

Selecting wines you have not tasted before can be a daunting task, so we have developed our very own “wine wheel” to help you identify which style of wines you like best. Once you have identified your personal favourite style, this then makes your shopping experience much quicker, easier and more interesting, and helps you avoid selecting wines you might not like.
