Earle Wines

Earle Wines  is an independent family wine merchant based Harrogate, North Yorkshire. John Jacobs of Earle Wines forges close associations with mainly small family owned wine producers and their vineyards to bring  quality wines to the UK market. Most of the wines are exclusive to them and cannot be found elsewhere on the high street or through larger retail outlets. Although they specialise in French wines, they also have many excellent wines from other innovative wine producing countries. Their selection not only includes thought provoking wines for ‘every day’ drinking but also rare fine wines, which greatly reflect the variety, value and quality of wines which have been their hallmark for the last 40 years.

The attention to detail is evident in the final products they sell which would be well suited to be stored in A & W Moore’s hand crafted wine racks www.wineracks.co.uk . The vines are grown with little or no use of chemical treatments or fertilisers, and in most cases the producers tend their vines by hand at all stages of the growing and harvesting processes.

Their full selection of wines can be seen on their website www.earlewines.com or Tel. 01423330900
