Songbird Wines is a Kent based Wine Merchant supplying the Trade and Private Clients. The focus is on quality wine from boutique growers from Italy, Spain and France. We also offer home visit wine tasting events for the general public and is the only wine merchant in Kent to do so.
The company was started in 2014 (as JW Wines) by Jonny Wren, frustrated that he could not find wine from his favourite wine regions in the Canterbury area. With 15 years experience in the London fine wine trade, he knew that the oenophiles of Kent were missing out on some fantastic wines.
Jonny shipped some of his favourite wines and gave his favourite local restaurants a taste. It was very obvious that these wines offered terrific value and were soon listed. An investment in a small warehouse and more wine followed. Over the next few months other restaurants and bars came to discover these fantastic wines. Now Songbird Wines is one of the leading wholesalers of wine in Kent and the South East. We are delighted to offer an exciting and exclusive range of wines from all over the world.
A popular and unique side of the business is the home wine tasting service. A fun but informative way to learn more about wine in the comfort of your own home, so need to worry about driving back afterwards. These are very popular for birthday celebrations, Corporate team building and Hen Parties travelling to the Canterbury area. Please visit the Tastings & Events page for more details

His career that includes managing Davy’s wine bars, a fine wine shop in Belgravia and a Director for leading London wine retailer, Jeroboams.
