Who we are

Your New World Wine Warriors

Welcome to Specialist Cellars. We’re a group of New World wine warriors, brought together by Melanie Brown, founder and CEO of our online Specialist Cellars, our Pop Brixton store and, The Laundry at Walton Lodge, an all day neighbourhood bistro and wine shop.

Melanie’s a New Zealand chef, wine maven and entrepreneur who’s worked with the likes of Raymond Blanc, Peter Gordon, Jamie Oliver and the wine-lovers at Vinoteca. Brixton’s been her home for the last eight years – using her experience in restaurants and wine retail to bring the best of NZ and the New World wines to the UK.

We offer a variety of different mixed cases, that are the perfect gift for a friend, or to introduce your palette to the tastes and textures of the New World. We have more bottles available via our online shop:

What we do

Our mission? To make incredible New World wine accessible, affordable, less mysterious and – above all – an experience.

Specialist Cellars curates the harder-to-find, best of, new release and most delicious New World wines all in one place for the UK market. It brings together the extensive wine catalogues New Zealand, Australia and South Africa, with new territories and producers joining our invigorating list of wines all the time.

We host all kinds of wine-related events at our Pop Brixton store and The Laundry – bringing you news, tastings and expert advice from our partners and producers across the world. We’re available for guided in-home and in-office tastings too. And of course for parties, your own or work events. Gifts? We’re all over that too – basically we’re happy to help with anything wine-related – we’re obsessed!

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you're struggling to decide which mixed case you should purchase and we would be more than happy to help. Gift notes can also be included in the packaging free of charge.
