A Leading Independent Merchant

We couldn't be happier to be named in this year's Decanter Awards.

To be featured among such great company, and to be acknowledged for sharing the joy of wine with our lovely customers, has given us such a buzz.

Don't worry though, we won't be resting on our laurels now: we have so much planned for the year ahead.

Think: new wines, fun events and more of the top service you expect from the Oxford Wine Company.

Top Ten in the Country

We are absolutely delighted to come in at number six in this year's Harpers Wine & Spirits Top 50 Indies list. There are over 900 wine merchants in the UK, and this is the fifth year running that we have been named in the top ten.

Despite the challenges of the past 18 months, it's been a pleasure to keep operating and providing our customers (you!) with stunning wines and exciting spirits. We took the leap and opened our third Oxford shop, found our feet with virtual tastings and continued to offer the same excellent service you know us for. We added new, standout wines to our list and grew our team by hiring four new people.

To be recognised for these efforts, and stand among the other top 10 independent merchants, is such a privilege.

With our events calendar opening up, new wines coming in and this fantastic OWC team, we're raising a glass to the next year! Cheers!

A Germany Specialist

Who could forget our great Ein, Zwei, WINE promotion and all the fun we had on Zoom tasting amazing German wines together - at a distance!

To be the finalists for the category of Germany Specialist in the International Wine Challenge is just the icing on the cake.
