Established in early 2018, in Coldstream in the Scottish Borders, Borders Wines is an online wine merchant, shipping across the UK. Looking to build a collection of wines familiar and new, we love the classic wines of Europe and great New World terroirs, but with a growing selection from lesser known regions of Europe and beyond such as Greece, Central and Southern Europe.
We're a family firm, passionate about wine - we sell fine and everyday wines for every pocketbook. We're always expanding our range, and love feedback on new areas or producers to explore.
Director Ken Miller has spent 20 years in the Drinks Industry, working for some of the biggest players in Wines and Spirits.
After histime in the corporate world he took the opportunity to set up his own wine business.
Ken says "I wanted to do something personal, driven by a passion for interesting wines from places I love, that celebrated the culture, history and food of those place. I see terrific value in the wines of Greece, Central Europe and other slightly off beat sources, where superb quality is still well priced. I also love the opportunity to discover new wines and grapes, and to keep learning."
Ken is WSET level 3 qualified in Wines and Spirits.
We work with our partners to find small, artisan producers and we support the excellent cooperatives that help small producers make big wines. Our wines consistently win ringing endorsements from wine critics in tastings and competitions.
