About our Company
A Family Business
In 1977 we (John & Jean Trigwell) organised our first wine tasting for a group and soon afterwards, created our own wine club.
A six year experience as wine merchants, in the mid 80's, fostered close ties with some of the top wine growers in France. During this period, a chance meeting with a top Burgundian wine consultant led us to the world of wine tours.
For 16 years, we arranged and conducted wine tours to France, Italy, Spain and California, helping hundreds of wine lovers to experience the vineyards and wine cellars at first hand. These tours enabled our clients to gain greater knowledge in this field and also purchase wine from the growers to build up their collections.
This encouraged us to help clients with their wine cellar and storage requirements which led to the idea of selling wine accessories. In 1997 we started to offer wine cabinets from Liebherr, air conditioning units from Norcool and cellar design and installations using traditional wine racks. Having decided to cease the wine tour business at the end of 2003 we set up Tanglewood Wine Accessories in January 2004. The business progressed very quickly and since then we have grown and developed the business to where we are today, offering a wide range of top quality wine storage solutions and accessories.
Our son Paul, joined the business in 2006 which he is now running from his office in Weybridge, Surrey along with his colleague Ben. Jean and I have taken a background role as consultants and are always on hand should we need to undertake any site surveys or assist with any projects.
As a family business we continue to offer a high quality personal and friendly service that has been the main factor behind the success of the business. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of our products, our honesty and reliability as this is not only a business, it is personal to us and as such we want to provide the best products and service possible. As well as being based in the UK we also store and deliver two ranges of wine cabinets from a logistics company in Oxfordshire and to compliment the sale of our cabinets we have a UK based service agent for any maintenance & repairs.
Over the years we have been responsible for designing and fitting out some really impressive wine cellars, that you can see in our gallery and we now have an extensive range of wine accessories to satisfy any wine lover.
We hope you enjoy looking through our website and look forward to working with you.
