Five businesses make up the Lanchester group of companies, each spanning different areas of expertise within the UK wine sector and its supporting industries. Each business within the portfolio compliments the others to provide a vineyard to table, wine service. Our first business, Lanchester Wine Cellars Ltd (trading as Lanchester Wines) was established in 1980 and to this day each of our businesses remain 100% family owned.
We have eight sites across the UK spanning the North East, North West, Yorkshire, London and the South Coast, including 920,000 ft2 (285,500m2) of bonded warehouse capacity.
As a group, one of our driving forces is our passion to be Carbon Minus, meaning we produce more energy than we use which we accomplished 2014. The Lanchester group has invested over £8m in the production of renewable energy for our sites, making us the greenest liquor business in the world. As a result, we were shortlisted in the Guardian Sustainable Business Awards and named a finalist in Business in the Community’s Environmental Leadership Awards.
We’re expanding constantly and incorporating into our businesses the latest in technology and innovation. As we approach our 40th year of business, it is as important to us as ever to provide excellent service to the individual customer as well as to some of the UK’s largest retailers. Our aim is to consistently over deliver on quality.
