Here at Lanchester Wine Cellars we’re celebrating 33 years of trading in 2013!
Lanchester launched in 1980, operating from the Cleary’s front room. With the will and determination to succeed the company quickly moved to rented accommodation for both office and warehouse space. From these humble beginnings the company has grown over the last 33 years and become the multi-faceted group it is today. The group includes Lanchester Wine Cellars, the long established importing, exporting, wholesale and bonding business, the fast growing Greencroft Bottling Company, Lanchester Gifts and Lanchester Properties which runs the Greencroft Estate, the home of the group.
Operating from 260,000 sq ft at present, the group operates a Class A Bonded Warehouse that compliments the three ‘state of the art’ bottling lines which are capable of producing 25,000 bottles of wine per hour. We are due to install a fourth line this year to dramatically increase production. We also run a fleet of delivery vehicles from here, always changing and growing to meet our environmental targets.
The recently completed, purpose built office and entertainment extension has given the company a facility and the front it deserves, where wine tasting and meeting rooms for the group are key features.
Lanchester continues to move forward, taking on new challenges and achieving new goals, using our experience and excellent service, ensuring many more successful years to come.
