Since 1780, building relationships is at the heart of what we do…
We are the outposts in Asia of London’s oldest wine merchant and we opened our offices in 2010 in Hong Kong and 2012 in Singapore to service our local clients. We are far from a closed shop, and welcome new customers with open arms. If you love wine, or are starting to love wine, we want to know you. Our portfolio contains some of the world’s greatest wines, many of which we represent exclusively in Asia. We also have an unrivalled selection for everyday drinking. Our buying team’s task is simple: to seek the best, at all price levels. Wherever possible, we represent our producers exclusively.
In 1780, Edward Bland Corney opened his shop on London’s Old Broad Street, offering a small selection of port, sherry and Bordeaux. The business flourished, and in 1838, his son, Thomas introduced his cousin Robert Barrow to the trade. The Corney & Barrow name was born. Today, our offices have grown to the north of England, Scotland, Hong Kong and Singapore, and have expanded into every sector of the market. We became the first traditional wine merchant to establish a wine broking operation and our merchant business is growing every day. Still privately owned, 75% of our portfolio is exclusive to us – a testament to the dedication of our relationships. Our range has grown to include the highest quality wines, from everyday drinking to the heights of Petrus and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. We insist on excellence in everything we do, just as Misters Corney & Barrow would have done.
Corney & Barrow’s Royal Warrants date back to George V in 1912, when they were first introduced. Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to individuals or companies who have supplied goods or services for at least five years to the Royal family. Corney & Barrow currently holds two Royal Warrants, as suppliers to HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Prince of Wales. We are the only wine company to have held three Royal Warrants concurrently, as suppliers to HM Queen Elizabeth II, HRH The Prince of Wales and, formerly, the late HM Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother. As Warrant holders we may display the relevant Royal Arms and the legend ‘By Appointment’ on products, premises, stationery, vehicles and advertising.
Relationships are at the core of our business and we are proud to represent some outstanding wine makers from the across the globe. From long-established producers with an amazing history of wine making to new, cutting-edge wineries in emerging regions, our portfolio is wide-ranging and of the highest standards.Find out more
