who we are

Occidental & Oriental Cellars was founded in London in 2009. Made up of 13 experienced and knowledgeable members, the team is based in London, Edinburgh, Bordeaux and Singapore. Our presence in each of these important wine centres, enables O&O Cellars to operate as a dynamic and proactive fine wine merchant. We operate under the umbrella of one of South East Asia's largest fine wine retailers. This affords us greater purchasing power which we can pass onto our clients.

Bespoke Service

Occidental & Oriental Cellars works differently to other fine wine merchants. Our clients’ requests and needs come first and we tailor our offers to our clients’ specific requirements.

We pride ourselves in our personal service and attention to detail at every level of our business.

Focusing primarily on wines of exceptional provenance and rarity and with a large number of ‘Ex-Château’ offers, we have unparalleled access to some of the finest wines in the world.  The strong relationships that we enjoy with our many trusted suppliers and producers is at the very core of our business enabling us to source stocks of perfect provenance. These relationships have been built up over many years as we frequently visit Châteaux, Domaines and European agents.

We have established a reputation for stocks of excellent provenance and our clients and suppliers trust that we deliver what we say we will. 

Our strong financial backing and large purchasing capacity enables us to take significant positions and keep our prices and margins low.

Such a bespoke service is appreciated by our broad network of private customers and collectors, luxury hotels and restaurants, and premium wine merchants in the UK and across the globe.

Our Wines

Our wines are stored in the temperature and humidity controlled cellars of London City Bond. We pride ourselves in only buying stock that is of European origin, refusing to buy stocks with US/Asian/Australian strip labels, or with strip labels removed. We try to buy stock with original packaging, but occasionally we may need to re-pack cases when the original cases have been damaged from extended cellaring.

We are constantly adding to our cellars maintaining an interesting and exciting wine list.

We are experts at sourcing wines, so if you are looking for wines that do not appear on our list, please contact us and we will produce an offer for you.

Please check the regularly updated ‘Flash Offers’ section on our website and register your interest to receive offers by email.

Shipping

Our freight-forwarding department will happily provide quotes to ship wines to almost anywhere in the world. Due to the large volume we ship on a regular basis, we have very attractive freight forwarding rates. Savings that we can pass on to you.

Should you wish to take advantage of this service and our low rates, do not hesitate to contact wine@oocellars.com

Cellaring

Our wines are stored at London City Bond in its very modern Tilbury Docks warehouses under temperature and climate control. For our clients’ peace of mind, transparency and improved security, we encourage private clients to store their wines in their own personal accounts with London City Bond’s Vinotheque storage facility based in Burton Upon Trent.

We have preferential rates from LCB for clients who open an account via Occidental & Oriental Cellars. Please contact wine@oocellars.com for an application form or for more information.
