VINORIUM, The

Update:

new store open 31 October 2015 in Cranbrook

An independent Kent Wine merchant describing themselves as an “Honest, Knowledgeable and ferociously Independent Wine Merchant” – The Vinorium is run by Stuart McCloskey.

vinoriumThe Vinorium able to offer incredible prices to our customers thanks to the buying power of Z&B Vintners. Z&B buy direct from Châteaux and Vineyards across the world….. every bottle is at the best price we can offer, giving continual value to you.

We believe in everything we sell; there’s nothing in our store that we wouldn’t drink; we don’t hop onto fads just because they’re popular and we’re not out for short term gains. We believe in sensational wine that you will love to drink again and again.

We are honest and accessible. No pretentious nonsense, if you know nothing about wine we’re here to give you advice and you can taste many of the wines yourself thanks to our tasting machines. We don’t expect you to know your appellation from your grape variety, but you know what you taste and we know how to find a wine you’ll love.

Our loyalty is to our customers. We’re not out there to help our suppliers, we do this for you. We’ll not bend to a supplier offering us better margins just to stock their awful wine; if it’s not exceptional it doesn’t go on the books, simple.

We’re dreamers, we create and adapt. Innovation runs through everything we do and we won’t stop. We’re not profit-margin-chasers, we’re passionate about bringing great wine to you and we’ll do it in the best way possible.”

A really interesting wine list with wide coverage, but particularly strong on France and Australia. Online ordering with extensive tasting notes against each wine. Easy-to-use website – and shop/warehouse just off the A20 and M20 on the way to Dover. (open Fridays and Saturdays). Wine courses offered.
