Business Spotlight: Cadman Fine Wines

Date: May 15th, 2018 Author: Giles Cadman Categories: Series: The Cadman Capital Group Spotlight

I just love writing these spotlight blogs! I’ve been putting the spotlight on different companies under The Cadman Capital Group umbrella for the past little while. There are quite a few companies under the umbrella and I know it may be a little confusing to those looking in. It's a lot to keep up with, even when you're working in it every day! 

This is why I’m featuring Cadman Fine Wines. I’ve always been passionate about fine wines, tasting them, pairing them with food, and sharing them with family and friends. Cadman Fine Wines is one of our oldest companies, which stemmed from this passion for wine. I’m proud to say that it laid the foundation for many of our businesses to come.

What is Cadman Fine Wines?

Cadman Fine Wines, founded in 2004, is a UK independent fine wine merchant, located in rural Northamptonshire. Cadman Fine Wines specializes in the world’s finest, most sought-after wines from great and historic vintages, plus real great finds from small producers. We specifically look for wines that embody classic regional styles and unique cuvées crafted from rare, indigenous grape varieties that you just won’t find in stores.

Where do we find the wines?

All over the place, really. Our wines are sourced by experts from field trips and wine fairs. The team was actually just in Burgundy, France tasting different wines to add to our excellent and growing selection. 

The wines we sell are made by skilled winemakers, who know that great wines are made in the vineyard – not the cellar. It’s crucial for the winemakers to care about the content of the bottle and making sure their terroirs shine through. Terroir is such a buzzword these days, but if you’re drinking a delicious wine you *should* be able to feel the essence of the land where it came from.

What do we do for our customers?

Make the buying experience as pleasant as possible. We provide customers with all the information, tasting notes, and reviews so they can make an informed and appropriate buying choice. Note: we don't even list the same wine in subsequent vintages unless it’s of equal or superior quality of the current vintage. So if you see a newer vintage on the site – it’s my best advice to grab it while you can.

Who works at Cadman Fine Wines?

Let me be the first to say the team at CFW is incredible. I would trust recommendations from these folks with my life! In fact, I had to consult the CFW team for help deciding the wines I would have chosen for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding!

Between Simon Felton, David King, and Mike King – you really don’t need a fourth opinion on anything wine-related, well, unless you want mine as well.
