Having begun our adventure back in 1986, Vintage Roots has spent the last thirty or so years fostering an unrivalled reputation as the go-to specialist supplier of organic and biodynamic wines, beers & spirits .
Our commitment to organics isn’t a gimmick, an ill-informed whim or a clumsy attempt to be ‘trendy’ or ‘happening,’ it’s the very kernel of everything we believe in and the very reason our ambitious business came into being.
Today there’s a growing body of irrefutable evidence that suggests mankind has unwittingly been taking liberties with our planet and we see organics as just one of the many essential initiatives required to put Nature back on an even keel. Attempts to stifle, repress or chivvy along nature in the name of aiding food and drink production are all too often futile and short-sighted. We believe that fantastic food and drink should exude regional expression and local character, and be a haven from unwelcome toxic chemical residues.
At Vintage Roots we insist on providing a full-service framework for our growing family of on & off-trade customers. Our fleet-footed sales team cover most regions of the UK, from Michelin-starred restaurants and gastro pubs to die-hard organic shops, delis, farm shops, off-licences and in-the-know wine merchants.
We’re proud to offer an ever evolving collection of organic and biodynamic wines, ciders, beers and spirits, as well as alcohol free choice within our blossoming drinks stable. Many are not only medal-winning high-flyers, but are exclusive to us, and exclusive ‘in trade’.
We also insist on providing a personal and bespoke service to our well-informed client base, taking a little extra time to appreciate their specific needs in today’s increasingly frenetic marketplace.
Don’t forget that our ‘on the road’ sales managers are ably assisted by a passionate and fine wine conversant head office team, who’re always on hand to advise when it comes to product choices and delivery schedules.
