Our Story

Welcome

A very warm welcome to Charles Murphy Wines! 

A bit about our founder Charlie Murphy, Charlie has worked in the wine industry for nearly 18 years. He started out working for a well known auction house in Newbury, heading up the wine section. Following his passion and love of wine he then worked for two independent wine merchants gaining a wealth of experience along the way. Having returned to his family roots of Northumberland with his young family the time seemed right to set out on his own two feet. So Charlie  along with his wife Alice launched Charles Murphy Wines Ltd in January 2021. 

 

We hope you like our lists of wines, all of which have been tasted and selected by Charlie. We have set out to provide our clients a choice of wines that we have not only tasted but we would also happily drink ourselves and serve to our friends.

 

 

 

Our principle aim is to provide you with delicious and good value everyday drinking wine to suit all budgets. That said, we also understand that of course there are occasions where you might need - or fancy -something a bit more special. With this in mind, we have also ensured we have a high class selection of finer wines. Due to the bespoke nature of Charles Murphy Wines, Charlie can source pretty much anything for you, including first growth Claret and Vintage Champagnes. 

 

 We pride ourselves on our customers experience. Being a small family team we might not always be in the office - because we are at a tasting, delivering wine or even treading the vineyards of Burgundy or Tuscany finding a new gem to put on our list. We are, however, always contactable on our phones or email and have the ability to answer your queries or manage delivery should you wish to place an order.
