About Laithwaite's Wine

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux... and fell in love with real wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share these delicious wines with friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that boutique wineries were soon queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from... including red, white and rosé, plus Champagne and sparkling, beer and cider.

  1. Thanks for the uplifting video Tony. You look/sound almost as good as the wine! The product is excellent in my opinion and I certainly do not regret joining as a member of the Windsorians!
    I look forward to receiving my next batch next Springtime.
    Best wishes to all at Laithwaites – especially Simon Millard my wine adviser who is excellent at what he does!

  4. Tony,

    Nice video. My wife and I and three kids used to live in Old Windsor (32 yeaars less a 3 year stint living in Shetland during the construction of the Sullom Voe Oil Terminal). So, we know the Great Park well and when the opportunity arose to become a “Friend of Great Park Bubbly” we jumped at it. Superb fizz! Well done to our adviser, Alex Gulley.

    Prior to the Norman Conquest, Old Windsor was the Windsor, only becoming “Old” when the Norman castle was built and “New” Windsor sptung up around it. There was a Saxon palace in Old Windsor, which no doubt William used for hunting in the Royal Forest of Windsor, before he built the round tower. He would have approved of a vinyard in the Forest!

    You mentioned a name for us. In Saxon times, Old Windsor was known as Windlesora. So how about calling us “Windlesorans” to differentiate us from the residents of Windsor!

    Best Wishes


  5. Unbeknowest to the Laithwaite family, my family has been passing on the appreciation of sourcing good wine to future generations and this latest enterprise in Windsor Great Park vineyard is testament to the founder. My uncle recommended my father to the audacious ‘youngster’ in an unassuming van importing little gems, who then filled our cellar with pencil sketches of his exploits visiting small vineyards and I in turn ensure that my son’s wine rack is well stocked when he needs to take a break from the front line in medicine.
    We will continue to enjoy the Windsor sparkle and more besides, good cheer to all the Laithwaites fraternity.

  6. Most delicious champagne. We love it! Also special to enjoy this local “delicacy”. We are big fans of Laithwaite wines, your ever so thoughtful members of staff and the whole spirit and philosophy of the company. Incidentally, I have also just finished Tony’s autobiography and thoroughly enjoyed every page of it. Thank you!!
