Laithwaites Wine


Laithwaite's Wine started in 1969, when a young Tony Laithwaite drove a van filled with wine from Bordeaux to the UK hoping to share his excitement at tasting delicious, authentic locally-bottled wines (a man and a van, with help from his nan). 46 years later Laithwaite's Wine is still owned and run by Tony and his family and we still believe that great-tasting quality wines are made by passionate wine makers at a scale that is, mostly, too small to reach the biggest retailers. Our buying team taste around 40,000 wines each year to find just 800 that are good enough for our customers. So, 98% don't make the cut - either for quality or for value. Our wines have been awarded over 300 medals at the major London shows this year (2013). We offer new customers a £50 discount to give us a try, because we are confident about the great taste and quality of our wine. Very few of our wine labels are household names, so we give our customers the confidence to give our wines a try by offering a 100% guarantee of enjoyment, or they receive a refund or replacement bottles. When a customer receives their introductory case it includes handy tasting cards about each wine. This card shares behind the scenes information about the wine, plus tips including food matches and grape and wine region descriptions. Want to join our passionate wine team?
