The Wine Company is owned by the Wheeler family, who can trace their wine merchant routes back 6 generations in Colchester. The company is dedicated to the search for excellent wines offering truly good value for money and specialising in individual family producers.
The Wheeler family has been a part of Colchester’s rich and diverse history since 1854, beginning its journey in the heart of the well-known town, on the High Street. George Wheeler joined the family’s wine merchant business, established by his uncle John Lay, in 1883. The founders passed away in 1895, and descendent John Frederick Wheeler inherited the family business.
