A Franchise Oppurtunity Uncorked
Developed to meet growing customer demand for quality wines at affordable prices, the wine buff offers customers a comfortable, enjoyable and affordable way to buy specially selected wines exclusive to their shops.

The Wine Buff was developed to meet growing customer demand for quality wines at affordable prices. All too often the wine buying process can be frustrating and daunting for the customer, wine shops are often intimidating, snobbish and expensive. At The Wine Buff, we offer our customers a comfortable, enjoyable and affordable way to buy specially selected wines exclusive to our shops. We specialise in finding wines made by the best family operated vineyards who adopt organic or reasoned struggle viticulture, ensuring natural, pure and balanced wines. All wines are sourced direct from these vineyards, cutting out the middle-men and ensuring excellent quality/price.

An independent approach
Paddy O' Flynn, one of the founders of The Wine Buff, has been resident in St. Emilion, Bordeaux, for the last fifteen years. A former manager of La Tour des Vins, one of the premier wine-shops in St. Emilion, he is perfectly located to find the best quality wines within the different price ranges in the wine growing regions of Europe, guaranteeing the consumer real value for money.

The result of having Paddy O'Flynn in place allows our customers to choose from a very individual selection of wines, all exclusive to The Wine Buff.
