The Hop, The Vine

Merchant Of Fine Wines & Ales

Cobalt Christmas Market 2013

“The Hop, The Vine” are one of Britain's youngest wine merchants

Despite our lack of history we still believe in traditional standards of service and quality.  We focus on working with producers who have the ability and determination to develop their brand identities with us in order to participate in the traditional retail sector of the UK. Working closely with our producers we deliver the right styles at the prices that buyers require. As well as excellence in sourcing, we offer the highest quality distribution service  from our warehouse.

Since the end of 2006 “The Hop, The Vine”  have become one of the North’s leading "New World" wine suppliers, choosing also to work with some contemporary European producers who we believe show real "New World Attitude". We adopt a regional approach to our portfolio, offering the best from key wine-growing areas within each country we represent.  All producers are selected with  the quality of wine being paramount.  The wines comes from established producers or from small boutique wineries so the price you see will reflect the true value of the wine.  Having recently spoken to a winemaker from De Grendel vineyard, S. Africa, the passion shown is not just in the making of the wine but for the environment in which she lives.  Our philosophy has always been to give the best possible wine quality and good old fashioned personal service to our customers. 

It is key to us that we build lasting relationships with our customers and suppliers, so we are keen to stay as a family run, independent wine merchant.  At “The Hop, The Vine” wine is more than a drink.  Far removed from the mass produced, identikit wines of others, we source intriguing wines full of character, from producers whose wines speak loudly of their sense of place.  In turn our customers benefit from high quality wines with real stories that make selling great wine all the more fun.

We endeavour to ensure we deliver the same passion and excellence to you that you deserve and expect from our business.  We’ll source the wine, advise our customers, deliver the wine. You need something? Just ask!  We’re here to help – no questions asked. Never pompous, never straight laced or condescending, we are professional but relaxed and approachable.  We always aim to go ‘Beyond Boundaries’ to exceed your expectations

Among the many wines that we have in stock you will find a selection of real ales, stocks may fluctuate but Allendale and Wylam beers are among our favourites. If the brewey has the beer in stock so do we. The complete range is available at £2.80 per bottle.
