john-fellsABOUT CORKR FINE WINES

Corkr Fine Wines was set up by the great great grandson of John Fells who founded John E Fells & Sons, wine and port importer, in 1858.

We are a wine merchant that specialises in Bordeaux, but also offer a selection of wines from other regions and countries. We list our own wine, wine that we are selling on behalf of private clients and wine from sources across Europe. We use a sophisticated pricing system that we have developed that compares prices and only lists on our website the lowest price, ensuring you the customer is purchasing at the most competitive price on the market. Most wines are available immediately, but if the wines are being sourced  from Europe there will be a lead time of up to four weeks.

We pride ourselves on sourcing perfect provenance stock, with stock being either ex-bordeaux or ex-chateau so you can ensure that the wine you are buying has not been traded from merchant to merchant. The prices we offer at may not always be the cheapest, but the provenance can be guaranteed, so when you open a bottle you know that the wine you have bought is also what you are tasting.


Our wine list and prices change daily and our wine offers change weekily.

Our head office is in the United Kingdom, but we trade worldwide, shipping wines weekly to  Europe, Hong Kong, China, the United States and further afield.

We have developed the website to allow you to translate and read the website in your native language and to view prices in Pounds Sterling, Euros, United States Dollars and Hong Kong Dollars.

We are privileged to be one of only 400 members worldwide who are Full Members of Liv-Ex, the fine wine exchange which is quoted on Bloomberg. Liv-Ex allows us to offer unparalleled information, data and market reports to our clients who purchase Fine Wine and allows us to source wines not on our website for clients at very competitive prices and in large quantities.

We provide information on Investing in Fine Wines including what to buy, how long to keep, and when to sell.

We do Cellar Plans from only £100 a month allowing everyone to have the chance to own a Fine Wine Cellar. Cellar Plans are often started for a specific reason; to accumulate monies to purchase the greatest wines of Bordeaux, as a Christening present to lay wine down for a child's 21st Birthday or to provide capital for Retirement.

We provide a valuation service for individuals wanting to sell or for insurance purposes and offer a sourcing service to locate wines that are rare or hard to find.

We are a friendly team who pride ourselves on providing a personalized service tailored to meet your needs.
