About Us

Wine and Grape Trading UK was setup by Defined Wine Ltd in 2021 to connect grape growers, winemakers and brands.

Other wine regions all have easy ways for trading grapes and bulk wine, which growers and wineries can use to help manage their cashflow and stock. We felt something similar was needed in the UK to help the sector grow. 

Defined Wine Ltd is a contract only winery (with no vineyards or brands of its own), providing a full range of laboratory and winemaking services. 

Please contact us if you have any suggestions or ideas to share.

How it works

Selling grapes or wine

If you have grapes or wine for sale then:

  1. Register your details (so that people can contact you).
  2. Provide details of the grapes or wine you have to sell. The more detail you provide, the more it will help people looking. Please note there is a small fee (£10 incl VAT) for each listing
  3. Sit back and wait for people to get in touch. Anyone who is interested will contact you via the website, so your name, vineyard and contact details won’t be visible.

When you receive an expression of interest, it will come with the contact details of the person, allowing you to communicate directly with them on details, price, logistics etc.

Listings will expire after 6 months or you can delete your listing by logging into your account

Buying grapes or wine

You can browse through grapes and wines for sale. If you you see a listing of grapes or wine that you are interested in buying then:

  1. Click on the item you are interested in.
  2. You will be asked to register your details and an email will then be generated to the seller, which you can amend before sending.
  3. The seller will then get back to you.

It will be up to the seller to decide whether to come back to you. There is no fee or commission for using this service.
