specialist wine merchants listed & mapped! (June 2019)


JOHN GORDONS Ltd in Cheltenham

John Gordons, Independent Wine Merchants and Bistro in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire ventures into the lesser-known world of Moldovan Wines .  Moldova has a rich history of expert wine production; the inhabitants of the territory that comprises modern Moldova have practiced the art of wine making since at least the 8th BC. It has the best potential of all former Soviet states for growing excellent quality international varieties of grape and its viticulture can be characterized as continental. Although its climate is more like that of Burgundy, its latitudes are similar to those of Bordeaux, between 46° and 48°.

John Gordons logoSpeaking of the wines John Gordons owner Gordon Duff said; “I look to offer my customers something different, a little unusual.  With Moldovan wines I can recommend something new; they are decent, drinkable wines which have a fascinating history.  They have been overlooked for far too long”.

They also have a large range of rare and unusual Whisky, Cognac, Armagnac, Vintage port and Spirits, from from around the world. You will find selected wines from both the Old and New world. These are not big brand producers, but relatively small individual vineyards, who, along with meticulous wine making, produce wines full of terroir and individuality.
