Wine, People, Service

Starting with a staff of just four, David Gleave MW founded Liberty Wines in 1997 with the support of some top wine producers from Italy.

His aim was simple and hasn't changed to this day: “I started this business determined to work with exceptional producers, whatever their size or location, with the belief that with hard work and by being stubbornly quality focused we would deliver the finest wines to our customers”.

Now with a staff of over 100 and a portfolio of over 200 of the most interesting producers in the wine world, importer and wholesaler Liberty Wines continues to offer exceptional value and quality at every level, selling to the on-trade, independent off-trade and the high street.
