Membership of ASDW is open to Personal Licence Holders who are proprietors of small wine merchant businesses selling direct via mail order and the internet.

We do not have a paid for secretariat and every one is expected to devote time and effort to the group for significant out of pocket expenses only.

Together we are stronger; sell more wine; and have more fun.

  • Promote the interests and advantages of independents to government, the trade and consumers
  • Organise consumer wine festivals with charities around the country.
  • We promote ASDW to national wine writers and bloggers
  • Offer mutual support, expertise, guidance and advice
  • Provide an effective forum for sharing best practice
  • Seek cheaper procurement of goods and services via economies of scale and collaboration
