    Where are we?

    The beautiful stone town of Dolgellau is situated at the southern tip of Eryri National Park. It is encircled by 4 mountains: Cader Idris, Arran Fawddwy, Rhobell and Diffwys. It has nearly 300 listed buildings all within a stone’s throw of the old town square.

    The valley opens out to the stunning Mawddach estuary. This is where you can start a walk or bike ride for 9 miles along the estuary to the seaside town of Bermo (Barmouth).

    Steeped in the Welsh language and culture, we couldn’t possibly live anywhere else and have run a business here since 1988.

    We started importing wine about 25 years ago and really value the close relationship we have with the producers from whom we buy. It is important to us to have that trust in the winemaker and know they respect their land.

    Whether they are certified organic or have good sustainable practices we know we are able to rely upon them to produce the quality and good value we are looking for.


    Who are we?

    Dylan – Chief Wine Buyer!
    If I had a penny for every time someone says they don’t expect to find a wine shop like this here…. Well, if you were thinking of starting a wine business you probably wouldn’t think of starting it in Dolgellau but we are rooted here and deeply attached to the people and the place. Many of our trips abroad to search for new wines take us to similar small farming communities. Like Llinos’s family: they are farmers essentially, who happen to grow wonderful grapes instead of top notch lamb and beef!

    Llinos – Chief Wine Sampler
    My mother was a good cook and her love of food and wine is filtering through the generations. My brother John produces Welsh lamb in Llwyngwril on slopes that run right down to the sea. Our parents and both sets of grandparents also farmed here.

    My youngest brother Tom enjoys photographing the landscape, people and wildlife of the area. Have a look at his cards (and photographs of the Welsh community in Patagonia during his Argentinian life!)

    They are both avid fishermen too and I think it’s fair to say that food plays a central part in their life! Naturally, they share our love of good wine to go with it. A real family affair!


    Find us!

    Find your way to Dolgellau’s lovely old square, look up at Mynydd Moel and we are just off the left of it – opposite the town bakery. Oh, and we still have a butcher in our town too in the steady hands of Richard, proudly continuing the family business.
