Business Description
Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Affordable Wine.

Affordable Wine which is currently based in Worcester, is a boutique independent business which is totally customer driven.

The mission of the business is to bring superb but reasonably priced wines to their customers and to dispel the myth that good wine has to be expensive.

The business was founded by the current owner in 2004 and has been a real labour of love.

The business is now being sold albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart so that the owner can enjoy a well-earned retirement, she is keen to see her well-loved business pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

Affordable Wine started off selling Southern French wines but now offers wines from all corners of the world.

The wines offered are selected with an eye to quality, value for money and enjoyment. They must taste really good to be offered to the customers and the business prides itself on offering an unbeatable, efficient, personal and un-stuffy service.

The sale will include the company website (affordablewine.co.uk).

The business has great visibility on the internet with its own Twitter and Facebook page (502 likes at Instruction) and great online reviews.

A database of approximately 200 customers will be passed on to a new owner and the business has many regular customers.

The business is proud to be a registered member of the Alcohol Wholesale Registration Scheme (AWRS).

5. A real opportunity to increase turnover and profits significantly, current owner has been running the business at a pace that suits herself.
6. Includes website and all social media platforms.

3. Attend Farmers markets and shows,
4. Initiate wine tasting events,
