At over 230 years old, Corney & Barrow is one of the longest established Independent Wine Merchants in the UK. The original shop, opened by Edward Bland Corney, was on Old Broad Street in the City of London, selling a small selection of Port, Sherry and Bordeaux. Our Head Office has remained City based ever since.

Still privately owned, Corney & Barrow has grown nationally and internationally, into every sector of the market. We have sales offices in London, Edinburgh, North Yorkshire, Hong Kong and Singapore. We also run shops in Newmarket and Ayr, having acquired the Scottish Merchants Whighams of Ayr in 1994.


We are the City of London's wine merchant. Our head office has been in the City since our establishment in 1780 and our ties with the United Kingdom financial centre date from that time. We have offices in Edinburgh, Hong Kong and Singapore, as well as three regional UK offices. We are far from a closed shop, and welcome new customers with open arms. If you love wine, or are starting to love wine, we want to know you.
