Wine Poole is an independent wine merchant in Warwick, supplying excellent quality wines from all the major wine producing countries in the world.
Founder and chief buyer, taster and seller Lindsay Poole has a real passion for fine wine borne from more than 25 years in-and-around the wine trade. With a background in hospitality management, she soon realised that her true interests lay with wine. Many wine exams later, she finds herself in Warwick running her own wine business with husband Barry, who had previously worked in international banking. The couple are ably assisted by administrative assistant Nathan who is also responsible for social media and photography, plus driver Mike.
Wine Poole stocks well-crafted wines from independent producers who are justifiably proud of their wines, including some less well known ones, often unavailable in the UK. Lindsay only lists wines which she personally feels offer true quality with many of them coming from family wineries, some of which are in their third, fourth or fifth generation and where the emphasis is firmly on flavour, expertise and reputation. Wines are competitively priced and offer something for all tastes and budgets. Make space in your wine fridge, ASAP.
As well as delivering wines locally the company also despatches throughout the UK via courier. Unable to run any wine tastings during the Covid-19 pandemic, Lindsay and the team have launched a series of tastings at home via Zoom. See here for further information.
Lindsay loves to really get to know their wine producers and understand the terroir where the wines are produced, so tries to fit in as many trips to producers as work will allow.

Too many to list but Saint Véran, Chablis Premier Cru, Albariño, Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, Amarone, Gigondas, Châteauneuf du Pape and Priorat are all up there.
