Haynes Hanson & Clark is a thriving, independent wine merchant founded in 1978 by Denis Haynes, Anthony Hanson MW and Nicholas Clark. Having started out with a shop and office on Kensington Church Street, we now have three shops based in London, Gloucestershire and Hampshire. We pride ourselves on the efficient, friendly, personal service we offer – you will always be looked after by someone enthusiastic and keen, who knows our list inside-out. We run three HH&C vans, which deliver from each of our bases Monday to Friday.
Our Burgundy selection is an extremely important part of our portfolio - this was originally established by Anthony Hanson MW, who continues to act as a consultant for us, travelling with us on buying trips and helping us to keep up-to-date with new opportunities. We work directly with growers and seek out those wines that we know offer brilliant quality, from the £6 price mark up to Fine Wines and wine sold En Primeur. Beyond Burgundy and France, we ship directly from New Zealand, Italy, Spain, South Africa, and North and South America.
Although strong in the greatest names from Bordeaux, our range from this region is full of lesser-known gems that we take great time in discovering. We are particularly proud of our selection in the £8-25 price bracket, where superb value for money can be found. In addition, we have a well-established, close relationship with the Jean-Pierre Moueix team in Libourne, who’s top quality wines from the Right Bank consistently pepper our list and never fail to delight.

Our extensive Burgundy range includes many of the region’s finest Domaines, many of whom we have shipped from since the early 1980s. We work directly with Raveneau, Mugnier, Dugat-Py, Roumier, Blain-Gagnard and Christian Moreau, to name just a few. Our selection is extremely varied ranging from un-oaked, lively whites that are ready for drinking, to Grand Cru level wines that deserve cellar ageing. We will be more than happy to guide you in your selections.

This region epitomises everything we love about wine: vivacity, elegance and diversity. We are proud to have one of the most interesting Loire Valley lists in the UK.

We are delighted to have established direct links with three estates in New Zealand. In the South Island, we import directly from Sam Neill’s Two Paddocks estate in Central Otago – his superb Two Paddocks, Picnic and single vineyard Pinot Noirs fly off our shelves. In addition, we have just made a second shipment from Greenhough estate in Nelson: delicious Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Noir. From the North Island, we highly recommend Kumeu River’s impeccable Chardonnays.
