In 2017 on a cold and rainy day in October we sold our very first bottle as an independent wine merchant (see picture). Since then we have been on an incredible adventure to source the most amazing wines out there and deliver them to you. We want to make drinking wine fun and interesting so please take a look around our site and let us inspire you to bring magic to your day.
I am Luke, the founder of Flunder Wines. I have been working in the wine industry for over eight years. I am soon to complete my exams in wine and spirits (yes that is a real thing) and I used to work for Majestic Wine but now I am finding, tasting and sourcing the most exciting wines around the world and selling them directly to you.
Having attended multiple industry tasting events I started to realise something; I did not like them and I did not fit in. Awkward interactions, stuffiness, pretentious language I was sick of it all. The gap between the wine professional and consumer is large and it's my aim to change this one sip at a time.
It's my belief that wine should be fun! An added sparkle to your day.
In 2017 I went from managing a £2.4million turnover warehouse to standing in the pouring rain in Southwold harbour with my first pop-up. Three years later and here I am alongside my wife finding amazing bottles of wine and hosting fun tasting events.
We’ll deliver it to your home, to the room of your choice. Or you can stop by our place and pick it up.
