JN Wine Acquires Independent Wine Retailer Highbury Vintners

Co.Down-based wine merchant JN Wine has acquired independent wine retailer Highbury Vintners.

The family run Highbury Vintners is an award winning wine merchant, that stocks in excess of 1,400 wines 'from all over the world'.

"This is a strategic acquisition for JN Wine, and one that has seen us work very closely over the last number of months with Sean and Gillian Sweeney behind the successful Highbury Vintners," JN Wine managing director James Nicholson said.

Alongside introducing new and interesting wines from the JN Wine portfolio, we have ambitious plans for growth that include a refurbishment of the 1,500 square foot retail outlet and increased investment in its digital presence in 2020.

Family and Artisan

"Very much like Highbury Vintners, JN Wine has a family and artisan wine-centred approach and a strong reputation for expert advice, which makes it an excellent fit," said Sean Sweeney, director, Highbury Vintners.


Highbury Vintners was founded by John Sweeney, and has been serving retail and online customers in London for nearly four decades.

Sweeney added: "Our loyal and valued customers, both retail and online, can also be confident that the additional quality offering from JN Wine, alongside excellent service, will keep the values upon which my father founded the business in 1981 alive."
