Trade & Wholesale
Wanderlust Wine was born to find and import small producers making exceptional wines in a sustainable way. As wine suppliers we sell to consumers, we supply the on and off trade and are backed by a team with extensive experience in retail, wine wholesale and hospitality. There are a variety of ways in which we support our trade partners and wine merchants, including helping them create (or spice up) wine lists, elevating their events through expert advice (or hosting if needed) and providing guidance on how to jazz up wine shop shelves.
We’re proud of having been recognised for our innovation in the industry, having won the following accolades:
We are delighted to be working with a bunch of passionate producers, wine merchants, and when in the UK they love to meet the sommeliers, wine lovers and buyers who are such great supporters of their craft.
Our wine list is small and perfectly formed. We aim to keep it that way to ensure that every single wine has earned and deserves its place. By the very definition of what we do, we are not your go-to for inexpensive wines produced on a large scale to fill the bottom rungs of your wine list. We are here to offer wines that have character and a clear personality from £7 upwards. Our aim is to uplift your offering. We can give your customers something to talk about – in a good way! Our producer stories are a key part of our portfolio and a key way in which you can reach out (and sell!) to your own customers.
Some of our trade clients include prestigious names such as L’Enclume, Chiltern Firehouse, Scully Restaurant, The Bleeding Heart Group, Native, The Trafalgar Hotel, M Restaurants and more. We also sell to gastropubs, event spaces, cafes and concept spaces in need of superb wines.
Our Ethos & Standards
Our ethos is ‘simple, honest and fair’. We understand that good wines still have to provide great value and we negotiate hard to ensure that the wines are at prices that fit the market’s expectation, whilst being fair to the producers and wine suppliers who make the exceptional, often very limited products.
Grape to glass: sustainability at the core of what we do
Our growers all work either to organic standards and/or are vetted as sustainable producers. They have, above all, a deep commitment to the land and want to protect it for the next generation. Not only that, we believe in sustainability here on our own soil and are a paperless company, built on technology.
ONE BOTTLE minimum order (yes, one bottle – no “120 minimum”). We believe in offering the best, most efficient service. No quibbles and great pragmatism. Next day delivery is as standard with the option of same day delivery. We initiate account opening in less than five minutes and re-ordering stock at a click of a button.
One-on-one account management
We provide hands-on, commited account management so that you can see us as part of your team and feel comfortable calling us any day, at any time.
With years of combined experience in wine trade and hospitality, we are able to offer great, down-to-earth training to staff on all aspects of service and food pairing.
