VINTAGE ROOTS, Organic wines, Hampshire

Established by 3 friends in 1986 Vintage Roots has firmly established itself as one of the leading independent organic wine merchants in the UK.

Probably somewhat ahead of the trend at the time towards all things organic and less adulterated by chemical  they were “inspired by the from quality-oriented, passionate growers we met and other committed people in the organic industry.”

logoour list consists of some three hundred organic wines, dozens of beers along with numerous organic ciders, spirits, liqueurs, juices and even chocolate (well how could we resist?). We moved recently to a farm near Heckfield with an organic shop out front (do come and visit!) with more warehouse space to allow us to do what we do best and where the curious cows look in through the window at our busy office

To have a wide range is one thing, but to have a wide range of quality goods is quite another. Every item that appears on our list is tasted at one of our many tastings throughout the year and constantly reviewed for quality. They are tasted ‘blind’, amongst many others of their type. In this way, we are not influenced by price, or the ‘reputation’ of a particular producer. We are simply focused on choosing what we find to be the best for you in terms of flavour, interest, quality and value for money.

From once being a specialised category, organic wines are now much more mainstream and compete effectively on both taste and value. The website is attractive and easy to navigate with online ordering and decent tasting notes.

They also offer vegan and bio dynamic wines.

Tastings are arranged throughout the year
“We don’t have a shop as such but the general public are more then welcome to drop buy and talk to somebody about wine and take and order away with them. There is a discount for collection as well.”
