Welcome to Stone Vine & Sun

Stone, Vine & Sun Wine Merchants - committed to sourcing superb wines that truly reflect the land they are grown on.

23rd February 2021 - update.

Our sale ends on Sunday the 28th. We have added a few more lines to spice up the selection - from popular Rioja and Albarino to fine Vacqueyras and white Santenay - so there are now over 65 wines on the site - see Buy Wine and then Bin Ends. We are also back to our usual efficient routine, so online orders should be delivered with with our customary alacrity - i.e. 2-4 working days and sometime faster. 

Our 2019 Burgundy en primeur offer also continues until the end of March. 2019 is a superb vintage in Burgundy - Decanter magazine (February 2020) called it "a stellar year". The wines, both white and red, are delicious and will be ready to drink soon. So do download this list (see the button above) even if you have not bought en primeur before, especially as we offer mixed selections at the back of the list for the first time. You will benefit from two advantages from a delay in our normal timing in making this offer. First, we were able to taste a higher proportion of finished, and often bottled, wines, making us more confident of our choices. Second, by pricing later we have clearly taken a more optimistic view of the value of the pound than some other merchants who released early. As a result we often seem to be 5-10% cheaper than some grander London businesses where we overlap. We are also not using a reduced harvest as an excuse for price increases and as a high-pressure selling tool: those who dramatically emphasise that the 2019 harvest was down 30-50% are being disingenuous, comparing it to the bountiful 2018 crop. We have reserved more than usual and have plenty to sell before this closes at the end of March

You can order most of the wines online, but if you would like advice on what to buy please email sales@stonevine.co.uk with your enquiry and a phone number and we will call you back. Do the same if you are seeking any of our tiny allocation of Grand Crus: and we do expect purchases of those to be linked to other wines in our offer.

Finally, note that several very popular wines are back in stock: Gravières de la Brandille Bordeaux Rouge; Grand Arc Reserve Corbières; Blanchet's Pouilly Fumés; Lagneau's Regnié; Fiorano's Sangiovese (now renamed I Paoli); and Des Dieux's superb sparkling Claudia. 

Our shop in Twyford is still firmly closed apart from collections - we hope you will respect the reason for this. We are offering collections at the shop between 10 and 5 during week days. If you wish to collect please say so in the delivery instructions box - and when you plan to come. Please don't come without pre-ordering; we must take payment details for telephone orders; and please don't ask to come in. You order will be in marked boxes on a table just inside our door.

Finally, thanks for all the orders we have received over the last ten months - it's great to have your support,

Simon Taylor
