Martinez, Ilkley

A long-established independent Ilkley wine merchant in West Yorkshire since 1979 and designating themselves as “famously independent”:

logoToday, the Martinez team, under the new leadership of Jonathan Cocker, is building on the ethos established by Julian Martinez and his father for sourcing unique and individual wines of honesty, character and integrity at all different price levels. No wine makes it onto the shelf unless the team have tasted and approved it. We are ‘famously independent’ wine merchants – there is no faceless central buying department making financial decisions at the expense of quality.

Wines from France and Spain head their list, but plenty of other countries are offered – plus beers and spirits. Good online offering with online ordering and well-positioned high street shop and wine bar. It looks to be a successful blend of traditional wine merchant values and 21st Century approach!
