About Us


“As wine consultant to two of London’s most popular restaurants for over 30 years, and having used many wine merchants, my move to Ellis of Richmond as main supplier, three years ago, was undoubtedly the best over the whole period of my consultancy. They are super efficient in both wine supply and, importantly, accounting; they stock a large range of high quality wines at all levels, which are rarely out of stock; and excel at communication. They are a modern company with old fashioned principals – they make me feel that, as a customer, I am their most important priority.”

– Joe Naughalty, Master of Wine


“I have been working with Ellis of Richmond for the last 5 years. During this time they have been my major wine supplier and I can whole heartedly recommend them to any other restaurateur. Most importantly they supply really great wines at all different price points. But what makes Ellis so exceptional is the way in which they conduct their business and the level of customer service they provide. In the 10 years that I have been operating restaurants I have never received this level of service from any of my other suppliers- Ellis set the standard”

– Sam Harrison, Sam’s Brasserie

– Charlie Deuchar, Bayards Cove Inn


“When we were creating the restaurant someone very kindly introduced me to Charlie. From the first meeting onwards, followed by a wonderful inaugural tasting/list design and every single exchange & encounter ever since has been a delight. I can’t recommend Charlie & Ellis wines highly enough but you’ll see that as soon as you meet with them”

– Zoë Paskin, The Palomar


“Just returned from a fabulous trip to Ramon Bilbao in Rioja . The trip was hosted by David Azam, our local company sales rep. I must say that the trip was fantastic, fun, informative and entertaining from start to finish. As always with Ellis it was all about the wine.”
