About Us

Dashingwines.uk was created from the original insight by Richard Speirs that you can find intriguing and individual growers wines and ship them straight to Winelovers which gives you much better prices. He says –

“More than 30 years working in wine and tasting great wines from all round the world has made me realise how passionate I am about European wines with clear, distinctive personalities. Originally I worked in small wine shops and over the years my career has taken in cleaning vats and pruning vines in the snow in France and Germany to more recently creating  wines for some supermarkets. 

My favourite wines tend to come from small, mainly family-run domaines or co-operatives, often in the middle of nowhere. I visit them all on a regular basis, allowing me to make exciting discoveries that you are unlikely to find elsewhere.

Work still takes me regularly to France, Germany, Austria and Bulgaria and will continue to send me all over the world, while I am helped here in the UK by my wife, Victoria. We look forward to sharing some of Europe’s greatest and best value wines with you and very much hope that you let us know what you think of them.”

Dashing wines makes regular selections of these wines from different areas and we are happy to give tastings and do corporate events on demand.
