why halfwine

Why Halfwine?'s founder introduces half bottles of wine; why would you drink them; where do they come from; what is on offer; and halfwine's quality guarantee.

Decades of experience

With discerning individuals in mind, our wines have been carefully selected by experienced half bottle buyers and offer excellent examples of each style.

The founders have been buying half bottles for more than 20 years and know just how difficult it is to find good quality at a fair price. We buy from smaller, independent producers who use organic methods wherever possible.


Our promise to you is that our wines will be good quality and typical of what they are. If you don’t like a wine for any reason or it is off (it happens, even in the best of families), we will give you a credit towards your next purchase.

Gift Packs

Half bottles make ideal gifts: a birthday or Christmas present, a ‘get well’ gift, a Valentine’s Day thought, your contribution to a fabulous dinner, or you just deserve it!

Tasting Packs

A selection of wines designed for wine tasting, that is, comparing and contrasting different types of wines. Perfect for any occasion.

We want your wine buying experience to be easy.

Experiment with us. Over time together we will hone in on the wines you really like. Wouldn’t it be great to drink only what you like?
