The Vindependents solution for Independents

  • Vindependents is a new agency business owned by the leading independent wine merchants in the UK. This is initially a group of 18 but will grow to include more and more merchants.
  • We have an exclusive range of wines selected by Independents for Independents. We maintain agency relationships directly with estates on a UK exclusive basis only.
  • We sell predominantly to independent wine merchants so channel management decisions are taken in the interests of independents.
  • We don’t sell direct to restaurants so members are free to wholesale any wine from the range.
  • Our margins are circa 5% to the agency, allowing competitive pricing for the customer when wines are sold via wholesale or retail.
  • Customers have the ability to gain equity in the business based on the amount they buy.
