Borough Wines remain a small business with big ideas. Since our humble beginnings a lot of wine has flowed under the bridge, and we have always been at the forefront of change in the drinks industry, sought out by customers and respected by the trade.

Always looking to innovate and stay ahead of the pack, we recently invested in a new bottling and kegging facility in Greenwich Peninsula with an in-house cellar tech team, allowing us to go full circle and fully embrace the circular economy.

We’re excited to share our next step along the sustainability journey, with the launch of our own bottle deposit scheme, starting with 25 wines. All of these wines are selected from independent winemakers whose ethos we share and love and will be sold alongside our Refill range.
