"James Tanner is the fourth generation to head up the seven-strong chain of wine merchants called Tanners, which has been family-run since it started in 1842. The company, recently described by wine columnist Jane MacQuitty as “a Shropshire gem”, has continued to increase the diversity of its wine ranges as well as investing in expansion . Its most recent outlet is a converted cinema in Chester, while it also increased its warehouse space in Welshpool last year and made improvements to its website."

'The Perfect Country Wine Merchant'
Decanter Awards Judging Panel, September 2016

Jancis Robinson Tanners Wines

“Tanners, whose range was the best I have seen from them for quite a while. This long-standing, family-run Shropshire wine merchant has always taken more trouble with its German range than most of its peers.”
November 2016

The Times Tanners Wines

“It’s good to see that after nearly 150 years, Tanner in Shrewsbury remains a Shropshire gem under James Tanner.”
Jane MacQuitty, August 2016

Wine Anorak Tanners Wines

“Can private label ever be a good thing? …when the buying is done well, from good producers, then the results are worthwhile. The same goes for the own label wines from the likes of Tanners. In each case, it’s because the fundamental business of each retailer is sound, producer-badged wines that are bought for quality reasons.”
Jamie Goode, March 2016

The Spectator Tanners Wines

‘the wondrous Tanners of Shrewsbury.’
Simon Hoggart, April 2013

The Spectator Tanners Wines

‘one of the country’s oldest and most celebrated, specialist wine companies …kicking supermarket butt on flavour, value and authenticity.’
Matthew Jukes, October 2013
