VINEKING, The

Following our last visit the Vineking website has been given a bit of a spruce up (well done Eric!). We can only conclude that Surrey wine merchant The Vineking is an independent not to ignore.

Vine King logoFrom the very outset, The Vineking motto has been “great wines, no nonsense” and this concept has guided us thus far. You’ll often find me (Eric Laan) in one of the shops, enthusing about my latest discovery as few things excite me as much as finding a truly great wine, at a brilliant price, (especially if it also happens to be a Riesling or Pinot Noir).

The wonder of wine is an ever changing subject, so hop on board with us, as we’re going to have a great vinous journey!

We have been following the developments of Eric Lann, The Vineking himself, from hesitant start-up through to fully fledged wine shop. The wine list, fully searchable online, has plenty to explore. The list has been updated with those gaps in the range – New Zealand, South Africa and America – now filled. The Australian range and France are well represented with a smattering from across the various regions and, more importantly, interesting producers.
