Tanners has long been looking for the perfect site in Chester and we believe we have found it! This delightful Art Deco style building was originally built as a cinema in the 1930's and was recently home to Bonham's Auction House. We have tried to remain faithful to the style of the building, whilst retaining the distinctive look of Tanners' other branches, with a modern twist.
The Chester branch has Tanners' full range of wines available including stock of an extensive range of fine and rare wines too. You will also have the chance to 'try before you buy', with our wine dispensing system which allows you to purchase samples and single glasses of wine (see below for what's currently available to taste).
We also have a wide ranging program of wine tastings and events hosted in our beautiful tasting room, visit our Tastings & Events page for more details.
Manager, Mathew Evans and his team look forward to welcoming you and will be on hand to offer friendly, honest advice.

Meet the Team:
Mathew Evans, Manager
In a previous life, Mat studied Genetics at Aberystwyth before learning the ropes of the hotel trade at St Tudno Hotel in Llandudno & the Castle Hotel in Conwy. Now, with more than ten years’ experience in the wine trade and a WSET Diploma under his belt, it’s safe to say Mat knows a thing or two about wine!
His stand-out wine drinking experience was dining with Dirk Niepoort in the Douro in 2014, starting proceedings with a 1917 white port.
It’s not just about the wine though… Mat’s a big beer fan too who has even brewed his own beers with Conwy Brewery in the last few years.
When not at work, he’s likely to be attempting to play football, watching mighty Wrexham FC or walking his two gorgeous Jack Russells.
Tiffany Vernon, Assistant Manager
Tiffany came to Tanners straight out of Sixth Form having had a ball working at Wroxeter Roman Vineyard during her holidays. She’s been busy sampling and adding to her shortlist of favourite wines ever since and, so far, the highlight has been André Perret’s Condrieu which was a Christmas present to herself last year!
A keen writer, Tiffany had aspirations of being a journalist when she was younger and is currently honing her skills by writing great tasting notes. She is also super-keen on cocktails and should be your go-to girl if you need any advice on creating the perfect concoction to entertain your guests.
