Our extensive list features many wines imported by us into our Essex warehouse and others from selected major agents where we often have exclusive regional distribution agreements. Rarely, if ever, will you see our wines in multiples and the wide range is ideal for creating exclusive, bespoke wine lists for discerning ‘on trade’ customers. Many of our customers liaise with us to produce a list to specifically suit their needs which we then help design and print, in house, free of charge. Tastings and visits to our growers complete the personal service we can offer.
We have an agency list offering regional wholesalers and retailers the opportunity to buy ex cellars from our principals. UK orders start with a minimum order of just 120 bottles.
We can call upon a nationwide delivery service to distribute your promotional gifts or simply supply the boardroom from our extensive list.
To buy our wines which you might have tried at one of our trade tastings or whilst dining at one of our restaurant customers you can contact us via the enquiries and orders button. We will then either quote or recommend a stockist near to you.
THE CUSTOMER COMES FIRST AT WILKS & CO.
When Brian Wilks started the company in 1993 little did he realise it would become a leading supplier to the ‘on trade’ for over 20 years, going from strength to strength, gaining a reputation for selling high quality wines, honestly priced and supplied reliably by carefully selected staff.
Brian says “monetary rewards have never been at the forefront of my thinking and that means I don’t source wines to maximise profit for myself but rather to offer the finest examples of each genre at the best prices in the marketplace. Of course I can never be entirely successful but I’ll never stop trying and blind taste every new wine, against several contemporaries, with my team before making any decision to buy. All too often I come across mass produced wines that are marketed to be better than actuality which does no one any favours and has hurried the demise of many trendy wines over the years. To this end I offer single property Pinot Grigio and Prosecco, straight from source ensuring customers have the option to pay just a little more and offer real artisan wines so their discerning customers won’t feel short-changed.”

Bollinger and beyond March 2019
Having just organised and led a customer trip to Veneto it was good to enjoy the hospitality of Bollinger and let someone else take the strain. It’s an understatement of the highest proportions to say that Champagne Bollinger’s budget is far bigger than mine but I...read more
