We are still open and delivering wine. Due to high demand, we encourage you to place orders for the festive season early. If you are ordering for delivery before Christmas, the last guaranteed order date for UK mainland delivery is 12.30pm on Mon 14th December 2020.
This is our most extensive selection of South African wines yet: 39 producers, and 180 wines, from every corner of the Cape, and producers old and new. This is surely a golden age for South Africa’s wines. The wines soar to ever greater heights, yet they remain accessible, with impressive quality to price ratios, even at the highest level. But quantities are often tiny, so we encourage you to make your selection today.

Lay & Wheeler was founded in 1854, and remains one of Britain’s longest standing fine wine merchants. Today, our dynamic team works with over 600 wine producers in fine wine regions around the world to bring their latest releases and library stock to our beloved customers. Our buying team spends half the year on the road, tasting these wines and discovering new ones.
We sell wine in bond, for storage in our bonded cellar, or duty paid, for delivery to you to drink or store at home. Whether you intend to buy wines en primeur, on first release, to drink in the future, or intend to buy wines that are ready to drink now, we have many options available. We specialise in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone, Loire, Champagne, Italy and South Africa, and also feature select wines from Austria, Australia, Germany, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, and the USA, amongst others.
Fundamental to our business is our approach to service. We aim to offer the best experience of buying, storing, selling or enjoying fine wine, and do everything we can to ensure we make this as easy and enjoyable for our customers as possible.
Cellar Circle is the best way to build a wine portfolio with us. Members work with a personal advisor to buy, store, sell and drink fine wine, and in turn receive special benefits, like access to our best parcels and free delivery.
