About Us

Windermere and Ambleside Wine Stores are independent wine and spirit merchants located in the heart of the stunning Lake District. Established in 1980, our aim is simple - to provide our customers with the very best products and the very best service.

As a totally independent wine merchant, we are able to supply wines from all over the world, wines to suit all budgets and tastes. We buy direct from the grower wherever possible, concentrating on producers who are passionate about wine, producers who have dedicated a lifetime to making their wine the very best it can be. Our independence means we are able constantly to bring in new wines. So if you've discovered a corker, do let us know!

We now supply some of the top bars, restaurants and hotles in the surrounding area. And we could be delivering direct to your door with our free delivery service for orders of 12 bottles or more.

The same level of service and expertise apply to our malt whisky selections. We have sourced some of the finest single malts, as well as whiskies from Ireland, Wales and even one from New Zealand. Just as we do with our wine, we taste every single whisky that we stock, so we can guarantee its quality.

With over 600 wines and over 100 malt whiskies in stock, we're confident that we've got something for you. But if there is something particular that you'd like, and we don't have it, we will endeavour to find it for you.

We also offer a range of services which include sale or return for party planning; free local delivery for 12 bottles of wine or more; a wine and food matching service, perfect for parties, wedding wine - for gifts and for your reception; cellarage; tastings and events.

So why not pop into one of our stores where one of our friendly staff will be pleased to help you find what you're looking for? You'll find us in Windermere on Crescent Road or Ambleside on Compston Road.
