Life's to short...If you would like to know more about well made, properly handled wines, offered at keen prices by an ethical wine lover, ported straight to your front door (with a cheery smile) through the increasingly heavy traffic (ain’t that a fact!), come inside this ‘brochure site’ for a glimpse of what we offer.

Our world renowned brands and smaller boutique products on this site are just the tip of the iceberg. See top left of this page for our long and shorter PDF lists (275+ or 500+ wines).

Man in a wine shopMostly clients scan our 2 PDF lists or our website (~200 wines) or our brochures (~100 wines) to pick for themselves. Some order by phone, some by sms; some by email, some by Wechat. Whatever they prefer… it’s fine. Some just buy when we have a sale; which we do regularly, and that’s fine too!

We find the wines that we like drinking ourselves; that offer the best value (and importantly- security of supply) and we choose to sell them. If they lose favour, we drop them.  Welcome aboard.

Quality seal

ETHICAL Trading: Purposely atypical, we set up the site to be counter-intuitive, when compared to the norm. It’s simple yet ethical (in a world often lacking both). We NEVER store any of your personal details. You have to input them each time you shop here. Why? Criminal hacking, con-men and identity theft are rampant. Data breaches are now commonplace, even among those businesses considered sound. We supply wine, not personal data. Your data cannot be accessed via us.

PAYMENT systems: We know offer Wechat and Alipay~!!! Yes, technology has prevailed and epayments are now accepted. Any form of epayment must be made at the time of  purchase. Otherwise, cash on delivery absolutely still an option. ♥  ♥  ♥

Free Glass Hire & Works Parties: If you need glasses for an event give us some notice, so we can reserve them for you. Remember that large orders for work events/parties may need some lead in time. Try not to leave it to the last minute… use the contact form if you like. ♥ ♥ ♥

We proudly noted that 125+ of our wines have been awarded at the Decanter Wine Awards in the last five years!!! We are pleased to independently select these wines; which are tGold Decanterhen acknowledged & rewarded internationally for their high quality and excellent value.  We are super excited for the upcoming awards, we’re sure Decanter Magazine will demonstrate yet again that our wines are doing great!

Does LWwines do DISCOUNTS?

‘Yes’. party-18-435x391

Monthly Discounted Mixed Case deals run throughout the year, providing great introductions, covering many purposes and are available to everyone at permanent discount as part of our commitment to be the best. These can be found here.

We rotate about 35 different cases over the year, keeping around half available while we freshen up the dormant ones. That means you may have to wait for your favourite mixes to become promotional items BUT: They’re Always Promotional Items, for everyone (even first timers!)    ♥   ♥

Flash  Sale (often for existing customers only) happen every 6 to 10 weeks. We just throw them out there at quieter times with little warning for our absolute lowest prices.     ♥  ♥

MoWine Sale 4 bottles perspectiventhly Wine Club automatically delivers a fixed case for those who like the ‘everyday wine’ choice to be done wine-club-standard-12by an expert. There are 2 fixed options and a newer exciting flexible option in which customers ask me to put together a list based on their guidance (some want a mixture of surprises and favourites): it’s what we call the 3rd way service and it’s a lot of fun. For all the Monthly Wine Club options, we set up repeating deliveries on specific dates.  ♥   ♥

Remember: Please mention us to your new friends & colleagues and if they join our happy club to become ‘at one’ with us, we’ll sneak a treat into your next order!     ♥   ♥

PORTFOLIO

tyrrell's-vat9-shiraz-104x350Our Portfolio is dynamic; ever changing. Some brands we’ve supplied for 6 years, others have a dash for a year or so before disappearing from SH. Some wines don’t get web pages of their own: Some don’t make it onto our PDF’s either, but we’ll stock such wines for those who ask or who like to go off the beaten track. Either way, we have always had access to at least 800 wine brands, not only from the traditional heartlands of France, Italy, Spain & Germany, but also from Napa to New Zealand, Chile to China, South Africa to Austria & Australia & Argentina.

Our PDF Long lists cover everything from Opus 1 to Oyster Bay to Ornallaia: The full list is only at the top of this home page; the shorter  list can be found on every page. Our (way shorter) PDF has 275+ entries.
