About Us

Our passion for wine and a commitment to deliver the best possible service to our customers has remained constant throughout our 160 year history.


Lay & Wheeler is one of England’s oldest fine wine merchants, established in 1854.

We’re committed to offering the best fine wine experience out there, from buying to storing, selling and enjoying fine wine, we can help at every step.

All of our wines available for sale are listed on our website. We specialise in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone, Loire, South Africa and Italy, and carry wines from many other areas, too, from Germany to Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
