About Us

Wine Barrel is a family-run business that has been at the heart of life in Brighton and Hove for nearly two decades.

Founded in 1992, we sell some of the finest wines, beers and spirits to be found anywhere in the UK, providing over 2,000 lines from our shop on Western Road, Hove, and through our online shop here (with delivery to those who are unable to come to us ).

Whether you’re looking for our latest recommendations for a smashing bottle for under £10, or perhaps something a little bit more special for that major occasion or celebration, chances are we can help you. Just visit or call.

With over 600 wines to choose from, ranging across all corners of the globe and vintages, we’re proud of our selection and you’ll find our staff always willing to help with your choice.

We’re a little bit different too. Not only do we have the finest of the “old” world and the “new”, we also stock rare whiskies and brandies, as well as dozens of popular gins among the 500+ spirits we have on offer.

And that’s not even mentioning our 350+ craft beers! We believe in service with a smile, so why not pop in or – during the current lockdown – contact us or order online to get a delivery straight to your door. If you can’t come to us, don’t worry: we’ll come to you!
