The Off-Piste story goes back to 1997...
…when Ant (Fairbank) met Paul (Letheren) at Western Wines, then owners of the Kumala brand.
A mutual desire to shake things up and offer the retail sector a unique wine solution prompted a characteristically off-piste move and in 2007 Off-Piste Wines was born
Fellow Western Wines colleague Andy Talbot joined the team from day one as Finance and Operations Director, becoming Managing Director in 2017.
We really care about our close partnerships with trusted producers and retailers, building long-term relationships that last the distance.
Our portfolio has grown to include a diverse collection of our own award-winning brands, key producer brands and a growing range of alternative packaging formats. We were the first UK company to successfully launch canned wine in the multiple retail sector and remain market leaders in the category to this day.
Our team works from our UK headquarters in Cheltenham, with a dedicated team covering the multiple retailers, convenience, impulse, national on-trade, online and specialist channels.
We’ve taken to the global stage and our International sales represent an increasing focus. We ranked 62nd in the annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 in 2020, showcasing Britain’s top 200 mid-market UK companies with the fastest growing international sales. We were one of only two wine companies included.
We are proud to support The Drinks Trust as official corporate partners and Drinkaware as corporate funders.
