Working with the trade

Over the past 12 years we have developed strong working relationships with establishments across the whole spectrum of the hospitality trade; Hotels, Fine Dining Restaurants, Gastro Pubs, Traditional Pubs, Sports Clubs, Cafés, Outside Catering Companies, supplying a wide range of wines, Champagnes and crafted beers.

We buy from a number of large national shippers as well as importing products ourselves directly from Spain, Southern France, Bordeaux, Portugal and Italy. With over 700 wines in our portfolio we are able to offer tailored solutions to fit each individual client requirement. All wines are individually sourced with many coming from wine producers where hands on wine making is key.

We also stock a range of Franklin’s soft drinks including a range of tonic waters which are perfect mixers for some of the growing range of artisan gins we stock.

In addition to the supply and delivery of wine we also offer a variety of free services which we urge our clients to take advantage of.

Wine list consultation and design

Bespoke and in keeping with the client's branding. We have plenty of examples to show you, just get in contact.

Staff training

Essential to ensuring staff are maximising customers' dining experience and giving them the confidence to make informed recommendations to match their meal of choice. We produce both concise tasting notes with information about the region, wine maker and the wine making process so your staff are well equipped to help the customer in their decision making process as well as organising training sessions to teach staff about wine preparation, the process of making wines and the information behind the wines on the wine list.


Along with one of our major partners we have developed a FREE bespoke online wine training platforn for you and your staff.

Tailored to your list and food menu the training platform covers three main areas... the basics of wine, wine and food matching and wine service.

We are currently using this platform with a number of customers, and the response has been great!

If you would like to find out more information on how you and your staff can benefit from using a bespoke online training platform then please get in contact.

Wine tasting evenings

This is an opportunity to provide a different type of evening’s entertainment to your customers. Working alongside your chefs with a theme. You do the food, we do the wine and you only pay for the wine used. This is a very popular event as it gives our trade clients an opportunity to fill the restaurant on an off-peak evening. All events are advertised through our own network enabling you to access our loyal customer base which enjoys following the tastings and trying new venues along the way.

If you would like to find out more information about our services, arrange a meeting or see our client testimonials then please get in contact on 01629 815255 or email
