It did not take long for Robin’s reputation to spread as the leading expert at sniffing out top quality, boutique wines. He has made it his lifelong passion to hunt down obscure wines that excite his palate and are properly priced.
Welcome to the wonderful world of SWiG, master importers of artisan wine. A small group of quality-obsessed misfits who travel around the world looking for delicious, undiscovered wines that punch above their weight. Many of their wines are rare gems that you certainly won't find on supermarket shelves.
One of their greatest pleasures is to source wine from small, family owned and organic wineries, the other is to get to know their customers and tastes and provide a bespoke service. They supply private clients, and some of Britain's finest restaurants. New wines are only recommended once they meet the quality exacted by the SWiG connoisseurs.
SWiG was founded twenty years ago by Robin Davies. From humble beginnings in a small wine shop in the suburbs of London, Robin soon discovered that there was a growing demand for the supply of specialist artisan wines purchased online.
“ Robin Davis (founder) from SWiG is a committed wine hunter. Like the 19th-century botanists who went on wild adventures searching out undocumented plant specimens, Robin will sniff his way through regions that seem to have been completely picked over – and, once in a while, emerge with a jewel” - Victoria Moore, The Telegraph.
The SWiG team have grown in number and there are now several wine connoisseurs all eager to seek out new vintages and boldly go where no wine merchant has gone before. The team have many strings to their bow and don’t just discover unusual and intriguing wines, the website is a hive of information with many blogs and articles on wine etiquette and what to look out for when tasting wines.
