About Us

About Us

 

Slurp has a reputation for offering excellent wines from around the World at exceptional value. One of the many things that sets us apart from our competition is that we have offer an evolving wine list that features new and exciting wines to tried and tested favourites. We offer a personalised and individual service and have 900 wines ranging from £6 to £300


 

 How we buy wines

 

We are big enough to achieve economies of scale but small enough to track down and buy from small winemakers to up and coming producers to more well established vineyards. If we find a wine we love and there are only 50 bottles available we will buy them and sell them as a limited parcel. This means that almost every time you visit our website or go to one of our shops there will be something new.

 

We obviously love wine (and beers and spirits!), but our joy comes not only from discovering new and exciting wines but also with sharing them with our customers.


 

Who influences us?

 

We have our noses and palates to the ground in terms of what is happening in the World of Wine. We read the opinions and views of all the wine experts; we have used 2 Masters of Wine recently (Sally Easton & Alison Fleming) for their opinions and views on some of our wines. Ultimately however we choose wines that we like and more importantly that you think you will like. When a particular region or appellation starts to receive adulation from the critics, not surprisingly the prices start to go up. We are particularly adept and agile at buying similar great wines at better prices from neighbouring vineyards.

 

Wines with awards

 

A lot of our wines are highly regarded and also have won awards. Quite often we find that wines that wins awards do not have a listing in the UK. Our agility in buying allows us to also almost immediately list an award winning wine and get it shipped to the UK as soon as possible.


 

Don’t just take our word for it

 

Many of our wines have also been recommended by wine critics in the following media:

 

Wines in Stock

 

Almost all the wines, spirits and beers on this site should be in stock and ready for next day delivery. The exceptions to this are pre-shipment offers and occasionally when there has been high demand for a particular wine which means we are out stock. Wines where we have limited stocks (or parcels) are delisted from the site as soon as they are sold out.
