|Vickbar, owned by George and Anastasia Lemos, has been in business since 1981. Work on a selection of wines from Greece began towards the end of 2003. The task, aided by native knowledge of the country, its language and its winemakers, was to identify wines that are not merely good but offer exceptional value in the UK market and are otherwise unavailable. With over 70 wines on offer we have the largest Greek list of any company in the UK.
We certainly propose to add to this list but Greece is not the only focus of our researches; we expect the number of wines on offer to reach around 250 over the next few months. Other Mediterranean wines will appear soon. Additionally a selection of superb wines from Central Otago and Martinborough, two of New Zealandís up and coming wine producing regions, are already available.
We run the business from our City offices in Charterhouse Square, EC1. Our wine, however, is stored at two specialist warehouses (London City Bond in Tilbury and Eurobox Logistics in Basildon) and is shipped directly from there. If you have an account with either London City Bond or Eurobox, you may find it more convenient to ask for an inter-account transfer.
Please do not hesitate to telephone if you canít find the answer on the website; we will be pleased to help you. We also hold occasional wine tastings at our offices; their dates will appear on the events page and anyone who would like to attend should contact us by email or telephone for an invitation.
Vickbar is always interested to hear from people who want to explore job opportunities. If you know about wine, have experience of selling it and think you would enjoy joining a small, dynamic company to sell truly extraordinary products, we would be delighted to hear from you.
