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. 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 weekly.
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 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 offer 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.
