Proudly Presenting Our New House Wines!
Our founder Tony combined his love of all things Rude with a passion for wine when he established Rude Wines in 2013. Fast forward three and a half years and the next logical step was to see the Rude Wines logo emblazoned on our very own house wines. As we reported in the summer, our wine buyer Gerald and co-founder Debs embarked on an epic trip across to France armed with a brief to source two wines that would bear the hallmark of quality, balance and utmost drinkability, wrapped up in a simple, bold design, not unlike our founder Tony ...
6 Green Bottles... (or any colour for that matter)
We’ve listened carefully to your feedback and thought it was high time we dropped our minimum order requirements. You can now order your wine in six bottle cases with a delivery charge of £4.99.

Mid-Summer Tasting Madness
There was no time to put our feet up in June with two more tastings to tick off in London.

We're going Loire and Rhône Crazy!
We’ve recently taken delivery of a whole raft of new wines from the Rhône and Loire regions, including perennial favourites Sancerre and Châteauneuf-du-Pape along with some new and exciting finds from lesser-known areas.
Rude Wines at the BBC Good Food Show
Another week, another wine tasting! This weekend saw us decamp to the Big Smoke for a marathon three day tasting session at the BBC Good Food Show at ExCel. This year’s show theme was ‘Eat Well’ and we were determined to champion our own ‘Drinking Well’ theme with a selection of delectable wines from the likes of Domaine Saint Lannes in Gascony, Edgebaston Wines in Stellenbosch and fine wines from the likes of Chile’s Casas del Bosque and Gavi supremos La Giustiniana.
