Trade

Having begun our adventure back in 1986, Vintage Roots has spent the last 35 years fostering an unrivalled reputation as the go-to specialist supplier of organic and biodynamic wines, beers & spirits .

The original founders and directors of the business are Neil Palmer and Lance Pigott. They both work in the business still, on a day-to-day basis.

The business is a lot bigger than it was of course, and now includes a team of fifteen and more. Many of us still have to multitask and apart from all the buying, marketing, finance, office and customer service roles, we have warehouse (we pick and pack all our own orders), drivers and a hard working sales team too.
