Despite our lack of history we still believe in traditional standards of service and quality.  We focus on working with producers who have the ability and determination to develop their brand identities with us in order to participate in the traditional retail sector of the UK. Working closely with our producers we deliver the right styles at the prices that buyers require. As well as excellence in sourcing, we offer the highest quality distribution service  from our warehouse/retail outlet.

Over the past 6 years “the hop, the vine”  have become one of the North’s leading “New World” wine suppliers, choosing also to work with some contemporary European producers who we believe show real “New World Attitude”. We adopt a regional approach to our portfolio, offering the best from key wine-growing areas within each country we represent.  All producers are selected with  the quality of wine being paramount.  The wines comes from established producers or from small boutique wineries so the price you see will reflect the true value of the wine.  Having recently spoken to a winemaker from De Grendel vineyard, S. Africa, the passion shown is not just in the making of the wine but for the environment in which she lives.  Our philosophy has always been to give the best possible wine quality and good old fashioned personal service to our customers.
