Established in 1983 Hoults Wine Merchants is one of the country’s leading independent wine merchants.

Open Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 5.30pm we are a family business with an enthusiastic if not slightly alcoholic team. Within the four walls of our large shop we have a range of over 600 wines from around the world, with something to suit every palate and pocket. Regular tasting and a very open minded attitude to wine means that the range of wines we offer is constantly changing, we don’t want you or us to get bored. Plenty of drinking also ensures that we know the wines on our shelves and that the advice we offer comes straight from the palate. Read more…

 Wines of the moment

Fizz. Henners 2011 Brut Vintage, England £34
I have yet to be properly convinced by our ability to produce great still wine but we do make some jolly nice sparklies and this is right up there with the best. Poised and elegant with delicate little bubbles and a fine mousse this is world class stuff.


Silly Priced Everyday Mixed Dozen £69

12 very different bottles of really very lovely wines for a very, very silly price which works out at just £5.75 a bottle. Make it a gift by adding in a shiny, high quality gift box for just £7.50.


Red: Domaine des Tourelles Red 2014, Lebanon Normally £12.99

Now only £9.99

This brilliant wine not only scooped a gold medal at the recent International Wine Challenge but it also took home the trophy for best Lebanese red. Then to really put the cherry on the icing on the cake it went and won the trophy for Best Value Red Under £15. All richly deserved gongs for a wine from a seriously top drawer winery.




White: Seriously Cool Chenin Blanc, South Africa £12.99

I love this wine and I’ve seen just how carefully it is grown and put together first hand. It’s natural but it’s also just really tasty, fleshy, textured, fruit-packed brilliance too.



Red: Honora Vera Organic Monastrell, Spain £8.99
