On-trade Wine Merchants

Anthony Byrne Fine Wines was established in 1976 by Anthony and Rae Byrne to supply the hotels and restaurants of the United Kingdom with high quality, Domaine-bottled wines from France and across Europe.

In the 1980s the ABFW portfolio expanded to include wines from across the New World and we are now the UK agents for dozens of New World wineries. Today, the Company offers our trade customers the ideal range of wines to build a comprehensive wine list, backed by a dedicated sales, delivery and logistics team to support your business.

We are still family owned and run after 40 years in business and the relationships we have built with our wine growers over these years allow us to deliver both top quality wines and excellent value to our customers. Our team have many years' experience in delivering top class service to the UK on trade, be it a hotel group, a local pub, or a Michelin starred restaurant!

We have twice been recipients of the Sunday Telegraph (wine magazine) “Wine Merchant of the Year” for central England and we were a finalist contender for the Daily Telegraph Energis National Customer Service Award. Wine lists that, together with restaurant owners and chefs, we helped curate have been highly regarded locally and nationally, receiving awards from the coveted Michelin Guide (2014) and AA Notable Wine List (2015 and 2017).

In 2016 we celebrated 40 years in the trade; we thank our employees and customers for contributing to and sharing in our success.
