For over 75 years the team at O Brien’s Wine has proudly served retail customers through our network of stores across the country. In that time we have developed deep relationships with some of the most interesting & innovative wineries across the world – they are our partners, over 180 small family businesses that we represent to bring the best wines to Irish customers.
In recent years we have started to develop a trade presence, working with a selection of customers in the fine and casual dining sectors and supplying handpicked wines that have caught the imagination of diners, Sommeliers and chefs alike. We now plan to extend that service. Through this exclusive selection of wines handpicked by our buyer, Lynne Coyle MW, we believe we present an unrivalled selection of wines that will help any wine list come alive. All our wines are exclusive to us and our team know these wines intimately; who makes them, how they taste, and what food they work best with.
