Based in Saffron Walden, Essex, the award-winning Joseph Barnes Wines was founded by Charles Hardcastle who named the business after his grandfather, a clothing manufacturer from Leeds.
Right from its inception, the aim of Joseph Barnes Wines has been to introduce our customers to interesting and unusual handcrafted wines from small, independent chateaux and domaines largely from regional France but also from other areas of the wine world, and to this end the mission has been to constantly seek out new and exciting wines that are rarely available elsewhere but still represent great value for money.
- September 2007, JBW named 'Independent Specialist Wine Merchant of the Year' by Decanter Magazine & The World Wine Awards
- December 2009, JBW voted runner-up in the Daily Telegraph 'Food and Drink Retailer of the Year'
- March 2010, JBW voted runner-up in the International Wine & Spirits Competition, 'Independent Retailer of the Year'.
- November 2011, JBW shortlisted for the International Wine & Spirits Competition, 'Independent Retailer of the Year'.
