About Us

The House of Townend was established in 1906 in Yorkshire and has remained in the ownership of the same family for over 100 years.

For four generations we have built direct relationships with some of the finest wine producers in the world. Our buying emphasis lies firmly with the smaller, quality led, and often family owned, wine estates and domaines who possess like-minded philosophies.

Whilst the traditional wine producer is an important part of our portfolio, we work hard at being at the cutting edge of the wine world, seeking out the new star performers, ensuring we get into the supply chain before they become renowned and obtaining supplies becomes impossible. Our wines are therefore individual and hand crafted, providing you with quality and great taste.

After 106 years of conducting our business from our base in Hull, more recently opening Red Duster House in York Street in 1972, we are delighted to be in our new purpose built head office and bonded warehouse at Melton on the outskirts of Hull, Yorkshire.

In this section we have provided you with an insight into our company, and we will regularly update you on forthcoming events...
