About Us

B50BI LOGO 2017_01shop.2The Company

Established in 1970, we have more than 40 years experience in sourcing and supplying wines and spirits from around the world and are today renowned in the North-East of England as THE quality wine merchant serving both corporate and private customers. We have recently been included in the UK’s 50 Best Independent Wine Merchants list announced at the “Think Indie Drink Indie” event organised by Harpers Wine and Spirit magazine.


Our small but highly professional team is fronted by Alastair Stewart & Mark Rennie who between them have 90 years (!!!)  experience in the drinks’ industry.



Our Aim

Our aim is to give our customers the best possible range of wines together with a first class service. So whether you need wine for a dinner party, an office opening, or just to enjoy on your own, we have the wine to suit. We stock over 400 wines & spirits from all around the world and because we are constantly tasting new wines there’s always something different to tempt you.



Our Sources

We select and buy our wines from small growers and large producers alike and because we are completely independent we have few restrictions on our purchasing policy – other than that of ensuring quality. We take as much care in selecting our simple “quaffing” wines as we do in choosing the many fine fines that we stock from Bordeaux, Burgundy and many other of the world’s top growing areas.

Our extensive stocks are cellared in perfect conditions here on Tyneside to ensure we are able to meet all our customers’ needs and to be as certain as we can that our wines reach you in excellent condition.



Personal Callers Welcome

All the wines and spirits listed in the web site are available to personal callers at our premises in West Jesmond Station, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE2 3HH.

Please note there is no minimum purchase necessary – we sell single bottles as well as mixed and unbroken cases.


Our shop opening hours are 0830 – 1830 Mondays – Fridays & 0830 – 1300 Saturdays. We are closed on Sundays
