A Message from the Owner
I have been drinking organic and biodynamic wine for many years now. Initially any wine without chemicals was better than a conventional wine, but over the years I discovered some exceptional organic or biodynamic wines, many of which were very reasonably priced. As I shared these lovely wines people kept asking where I had found them as most are not available in high street stores.
As interest in these lovely, healthy wines grew it seemed a natural progression to begin to sell them and the idea for Queens Park Wines was born. The last 10 years has seen an explosion in really high-quality organic and biodynamic wines as more and more growers switch to natural farming methods. Most people have no idea there is such a great choice of healthy wines or simply can’t get hold of them so QPW brings them all together in one place, promoting and supporting all the small producers that have converted to natural eco-friendly wine production.
I also hope to encourage people to think more carefully about what they drink and what impact it is having on their health and the environment. I firmly believe that the power to change the world lies, very simply, in how we spend our money.
The idea was conceived in early 2017 as was supposed to be a small, part-time hobby-business, but when I was made redundant from my job at Middlesex University in July 2017 I decided to jump off the cliff of dreams as it were, investing the small payout in setting up the business as a full-time concern. 1 year on and lots of hard work later here we are; Queens Park Wines is up and running and doing well, with extremely positive feedback from everybody that we meet and sell to.
There is a tide of change in the UK. People are no longer willing to put up with poor quality food and drinks that contains harmful chemicals and of course many have realised that with organic and biodynamic wines, you don’t get a hangover so organic wine sales are booming.
We have started small with a little warehouse near Queens Park in North West London, delivering locally with our own van and nationally overnight by courier. I feel it is important to have a local identity as well as a national presence and that is why I chose the name. I am often out at the farmers market in Queens Park promoting our lovely wines, getting to know the locals and allowing them to get to know me and the wines. Face to face contact and a personal touch is what I believe in rather than being a faceless commercial entity. Sadly I am unable to get a stall at the QP farmers market but I have recently started one at Primrose Hill Market so you can come and try & buy there. See our blog post for more details.
About the wine list
The wine list is still small, currently 120 wines, but It represents a carefully chosen selection of the best wines from all the importers that supply organic and biodynamic wine. Just because a wine is organic does not make it a good wine and indeed there are many we have tried that we decided not to list.
It will grow quickly as we begin to get your feedback so if you do not see what you want initially, just tell us and we can order it.
About the website
The new website launched on April 16th 2018. I have tried to improve the look and feel of the business while maintaining as much simplicity as possible, to make buying wines online, even on your phone, as quick and easy as possible.
If you experience any problems please do let us know. See our contacts page.
Lovely tasting wines with no harmful chemicals, no more hang-overs and a clean conscience. It’s a no brainier for me and I hope you agree and support us by enjoying our lovely wines.
