EVINGTONS of Leicester

logoEvingtons is a well-established independent wine merchant in Leicester, East Midlands. A family-run business since 1926 the wine list includes several hundred wines from across the world – with some interesting collections of wines from Georgia and a relatively large selection from Portugal. Madeira and Marsala also feature well.

The online offering  is attractive and fairly easy to negotiate. On-line ordering is available, but although there are pictures of each bottle, most of the wines we looked at had no tasting notes or even a brief description – which is a shame when looking to try something unusual such as the Kindzmarauli from the Teliani Valley or trying to work out which of their Madeiras to choose.

Clearly the range offered is distinctive, but a more informative web site would help to generate more interest from elsewhere 0r to make a detour to their shop if stuck on the M1 motorway!
