About Our Wines
At The Cardinal's Cellar our objective is to make the exclusive more accessible.
We offer wines that guarantee exceptional value as well as those very special wines we think everyone should try. Only the best vintages are selected - the majority are rated in the upper 80s or 90s by Robert Parker or highly rated by other wine critics. The Cardinal's Cellar aims to out price anyone by at least 20%, and unlike many wine merchants, will not hesitate to open a case to offer you a single bottle and positively welcomes sales of mixed cases.
Unsurprisingly, given our focus on excellent wines, Bordeaux and Burgundies tend to dominate The Cardinal's Cellar. However, you will also find a fair share from The Rhone, Italy, Spain and the New World and our everyday table wines are offered with the same premise of extraordinary value for money.
Our wines are sourced straight from the vineyard, from private collections, dealers and wholesalers. They are selected for quality of vintage and all are ready to drink now.
The turnover of wines through The Cardinal’s Cellar is generally fast, as relatively speaking, we buy in small quantities. If you cannot find something to your taste one week, chances are, we'll be able to quench your thirst the following week.
We give more information about the wines we sell than any other wine merchant to help you make the perfect choice. Point scores, tasting notes, awards and descriptions provided by our own experts, independent wine critics and connoisseurs such as Robert Parker and Decanter Magazine are all included to help you make an informed decision.
