About us

Citreola Cellars was founded in 2014 by Gael Dantec. Specialists in providing fine wine with excellent provenance at the right prices to wine merchants, investment funds, private clients and retailers around the globe, the firm has close relationships with many of the châteaux and domaines in Bordeaux and Burgundy.
 
We visit and hold tastings with the best vineyards often and are thus able to procure stock of the highest quality at the best prices. We pride ourselves on only buying stock that is of European trusted origin and store our wines with VINE International in their temperature and climate controlled warehouses in Tilbury Docks.
 
Full details of our wines are listed on our Wine List but we daily buy and source many other wines should you require something specific.
