About Us


The Whalley Wine Shop is an award winning fine wine merchant based in the Ribble Valley in the picturesque village of Whalley.  At The Whalley Wine Shop you can buy Fine Wines, Champagnes, Local Real Ales, National Bottled Beers,  Ciders, World Beers, Malt Whiskies, Premium Spirits, Ports and a good range of quality cigars. We aspire to be a ‘new generation’ of wine shop, and our ambition is to become the most exciting and happening wine shop in our market.

We want to make buying wine accessible, enjoyable, vibrant and fun. Why not make choosing your drinks a real occasion, by dropping into the shop, grabbing yourself a glass of wine and chatting with our expert staff about your preferences.

While you are in the shop you can buy samples of wine ‘By The Glass’ to try fine wines before you buy. We also have ‘House Pours’ where you can buy full glasses of wine to enjoy in the shop at very good prices. Or if you choose you can buy any bottle off the shelf and with a small corkage fee, you can sit inside or outside the shop, and enjoy it while you are here!

If you are buying for a special occasion or just to enjoy at home, from your aperitifs to your after dinner drinks, our team will help you to make the perfect choice. We are all passionate and knowledgable about fine wine, and our mantra is ‘to help you choose the right wine…every time!’

“We have a great team here at the shop, Jen brings  experience within the wine, fine dining and hospitality industries, and Will and Anna are enthusiastically taking their wine qualifications. We have a clear ethos on customer service which focuses on making the buying experience a pleasure. We try and bring lots of energy to the business, we love meeting and chatting to customers, we’re friendly, focussed and want to have fun so please do come in and say hello!”

Tom Jones.

  1. Can you get or do you stock Chateau Lebou Rose? I have just had a bottle which I got from the Inn at Whitewell and it was the best Rose I have had.

    1. If it is possibly Chateau Leoube Rose then yes we should be able to order some from one of our suppliers although it isn’t one that we currently stock. It would be £14.99 a bottle.
