Rodney Fletcher Vintners are a Kent Wine Merchant established and selling wine since 1955 (although our family roots in the wine & port business stretch back a lot further).
We supply both the trade and private clients all over the UK. You are able to buy wine online via our website.
1930. Wyndham Fletcher, in need of a job, applied for a junior position at the port house of Cockburn & Smithies.
Achieving employment on merit alone, and nothing at all to do with the fact that his great aunt was married to Henry Cockburn, he rose swiftly through the ranks,
becoming Managing Director of the London office and overseeing Cockburn Smithies’ takeover by Harveys of Bristol in 1962.
In 1955 Rodney Fletcher joined his father at Cockburns, then Harveys, and worked for several wine agencies until establishing his first business, Seely & Fletcher,
in the early 1970s and Rodney Fletcher Vintners in 1992.
Although officially retired, he still pays daily visits to our premises and retains a keen interest in the company.
In 2004 Tim Fletcher joined his father at Rodney Fletcher Vintners, becoming Managing Director in 2010.
We are a fiercely independent, family owned wine importer & wholesaler, supplying the on and off-trade across the South East
and private customers nationally through our online portal.
Many of our wines are exclusive to us in the UK and several of our growers have been with us for decades (as have many of our customers).
