Meet Us


At The WineBarn we truly live, breathe and love our wines! Good German wine is everything to us and we strive to provide a personalised service founded in expert knowledge, quality advice and always a tailored recommendation. Whatever your wine needs you can be certain that we can help select the right wines for your taste.

We also offer a Rare and Antique Wines service, sourcing elusive investment wines from hidden cellars in Germany. Check our 2018 rare wines list here. This is a very specialist field so please address any enquiries about rare or antique wines to Iris Ellmann; iris@thewinebarn.co.uk .
