“It is rare to find a supplier who provide a great service coupled with such a personal, personable and passionate attitude towards training and staff development."

We have worked with Ellis Wines for more than 17 years now. Our relationship with the team at Ellis is truly unique and goes above and beyond that of a generic supplier-client rapport. To improve the service that we provide to our customers in relation to our wines, we have engaged with Scott who hosts regular training sessions at our restaurants.
