Appellation Wines Importers and Merchants of Fine Wines

Selecting wines which hit above their weight

About Us

Appellation Wines was opened in Dalry in November 2009 by Ashton, with the underlying philosophy of stocking wines that cannot be found elsewhere. With so many different wines out there, why stock those that can be found everywhere? We champion the smaller producer and the lesser-known wine regions. We don’t sell anything we wouldn’t drink ourselves – and yes, we have high standards!

In January 2013 we opened our second shop, at 63 Comely Bank Road (0131 261 7656).  Weekly tastings are held in both shops, alternating between wine, beer and spirit tastings.  We also take great pleasure in hosting bespoke corporate and private tastings. If you need some more information, please call either shop on 0131 202 0985 – Dalry, 0131 261 7656 – Comely Bank.
