Averys of Bristol Ltd
|Owner||The Avery family|
In 1793 Averys of Bristol is established, making it one of the UK's oldest wine merchants. In the 1890s Averys focused on Ports & Sherries. Since then they have imported and sold all sorts of wine. In addition to selling established brands of port, Averys has on several occasions bottled port wine under their own brand. For example, their Special Reserve Vintage Port in 1963 was a blend of Sandeman's, Fonseca's and Taylor's vintage ports.
