Staff Wines of the Month

Dandelion 'Lionheart of the Barossa' Shiraz

"As the nights get shorter and temperature drops, people start to look for things that will warm them. Why not try this spicy and smooth Shiraz from Australia? An excellent value for money award winner!"

Ralph

Fazzoletto Barbera Passito

"Rich and full-bodied, packed with dark fruits like plums and dark cherries. Superbly dry, this wine goes amazingly well with roast game - perfect as we head into the season!"

Jack

Caruso e Minimi Nero d'Avola

"This fruity number hits the perfect balance between dry and sweet, it's fresh and supple with a lovely crisp finish. I recommend trying it wish a good pasta dish!"

Lucy

Trapezio Plus + + Chardonnay

"This Argentine Chardonnay seriously gives French winemakers a run for their money! It has depth, complexity, and a simply unendingly dry and buttery finish. Think butter croissants and caramel notes. Sheer elegance!"

Phillip

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc/Viognier

"This wine is very bright and enticing with a lively bouquet of mouthwatering honeydew melon and juicy pomelo. A truly brilliant wine that is worth trying with any fish dish, or maybe try it with a cheese fondue!"

Parker

2000-2007

The Journey Begins

In 2000, Ralph's passion for wine truly began when he graduated from university and worked at a wine merchant's in Oxford , before moving on to marketing jobs. Fast forward to 2007, Ralph and his wife head to the Loire Valley to explore vineyards and the world of wine.

2008

Ralph Tours Spain

In 2008, Ralph goes on a mission to Madrid with his parents to meet some vineyard owners. They drove to Ribera del Duero, where they met Alberto from Bodegas Vizar who then introduced Ralph to the vineyard Pagos de Penafiel. On his return, he started importing from both.

2008 - 2009

Founding A Business

The first shipment of wine arrives in the UK on the 13th October 2008, in the midst of the financial crash. Still working at his sales job, Ralph broke and dislocated his ankle. Unable to work, he decided to quit his job, build a website, and sell some wine. By February of 2009, Ralph decided to take on the business full time.

2009 - 2014

Growing A Business

Business started slowly, picking up only a couple of wine bars within London. Things only started to really move when Ralph started supplying Tom Kerridge's two michelin-star restaurant, The Hand And Flowers in Marlow. With more frequent visits to Spain, Ralph's portfolio grew from only 6 wines to 100 by 2014

2014 - 2016

Ralph's Wine Cellar Opens

Ralph continued to work from home until the arrival of his daughter, Sophia, to whom he had to surrender his office. The hunt for the shop began! In 2015, Ralph signed a lease on Whitton High Street. With just 6 weeks to renovate, Ralph's Wine Cellar debuted on 12th February 2016.
