Shortlisted as Italian Specialist of the Year at the Decanter Retailer Awards 2020, Independent Wine boasts the UK’s largest selection of DWWA medal winners from Italy's small, family-owned wineries.

Independent Wine works directly with small, family-owned wineries in Italy, with a primary focus on sourcing award-winning Italian wines.

Since launching in 2020, Independent Wine have built a specialised portfolio featuring the UK’s record number of Decanter medal-winning wines from all over Italy.

As one might expect, they boast a selection of premium bottles from Italy’s most famous denominations, such as Barolo, Barbaresco, Amarone della Valpolicella and Brunello di Montalcino, but they also offer a wide range of premium wines from lesser-known regions such as Lombardy’s Franciacorta, Alto Adige’s Lagrein, and Sardinia’s Cannonau and Vermentino.

Independent Wine is an online-only merchant, running its operations from its warehouse in Dean Village, in the historic centre of Edinburgh. All wines are available with free next day delivery throughout the Mainland UK.

Elvira and Oleg, Independent Wine’s founders, travel personally to each winery they work with and never leave any stone unturned. With a decade of experience in engineering and manufacturing, Oleg inspects each winery with the most critical eye and only selects the best. He says “we see quality wine when a rigorous technological process is applied to transform a gift of nature.”

More about Independent Wine’s exclusive offer

The Decanter Medal Winners – Italian reds wine club includes six premium red wines. This case will be delivered every month, with delivery free of charge to any address in mainland UK.
