The Merchant Vintners Company was founded in 1965 and is currently owned, in equal shares, by around 25 member firms. The Company's aim is to allow independent family-owned wine merchants to prosper and expand in opposition to the larger market contenders.

Our members enjoy many financial benefits of combining purchases to achieve competitive terms. On a qualitative level, members are exposed to the diverse range of expertise held by the Management Team and a professional and friendly rapport offered by the group; Members actively help and advise one-another.

Members have immediate access to around £2m of stock purchased at near shipping prices with many products available exclusively to the group. This allows members to reduce their personal stock-holding whilst retaining access to the extensive portfolio of wines and spirits available through the group
