The Association of Small Direct Wine-Merchants (ASDW) was formed, as the name implies, by a group of British independent small wine merchants selling niche ranges of wines to the general public online.
There are currently around twenty members each of which with passionate people knowledgeable about wine.
We offer customers a specifically selected, interesting and often exclusive range of wines at very reasonable prices.
The British public are well served by supermarkets at the lower end (sub £5) of the price range with their cyclically artificially increased prices followed by fake special offers. But it is becoming increasingly more difficult to find quality wines. The big brand names dominate supermarkets, steadily lowering quality on the back of duty and vat increases so that the average supermarket wine now costs £0.02 before transport, duty, vat and supermarket margins.
