David started working in the wine trade in the mid 90's and after experience in various sectors of the business he soon realised his passion lay at the finer end of wine production.  Looking back, he realises his ambition was alway to run his own business and in 2007 he was lucky enough to be able to realise his plans and launch Yarnell Vintners.

He has specialised in fine wine since 2000, purchasing and selling every Bordeaux vintage en primeur since his first trip to the region to taste the 1999's.  He continues to make regular visits to Bordeaux, and other wine regions, developing the close relationships he has made with chateau owners, wine makers and merchants.

He attained a Diploma from the Wines & Spirits Education Trust (WSET) in 2001 and spent an enjoyable period in the late 1990's judging at the International Wine Challenge.


Sue has been with the Company since its conception, involving herself in the administration and marketing of the business. She played a major part in the recent fund raising campaign and has taken responsibility for rebranding the Company - using her design background to build and maintain the Yarnell Vintners website and to create other promotional materials.

We are a fine wine merchant, specialising in Bordeaux and have been selling a range of wines to both trade and private clients around the world since 2007. In 2015 we raised capital, allowing us to increase our stock and broaden the range of wines on offer to our customers. We utilise the services of industry specialists for shipping, distribution and storage to ensure all the wines we sell, reach our customers in optimum condition.

The quality, provenance and security of all our stock is maintained at the highest level possible by limiting our purchasing from a select group of trusted and reputable merchants in Bordeaux, the UK and Europe.

We also purchase good quality, well stored stock from private collectors so if you have wines you would like to sell please get in touch.
