The careful selection of wines is of paramount importance at Tanners. James Tanner and Stephen Crosland have done the buying together now for 15 years, and are helped in their endeavours to travel and taste as widely as possible by Simon Jones, Adrian Patterson and Robert Boutflower.
We devote a lot of time to seeing our suppliers either in Shrewsbury or abroad since the best producers have to be convinced that their wine will end up with customers who will appreciate it. Quantities available are often limited and in this respect a firm the size of Tanners has a distinct advantage over bigger enterprises.
