About Cadman Fine Wines

Cadman Fine Wines is a UK independent fine wine merchant founded in 2004 by our Chairman Giles Cadman in rural Northamptonshire.

We specialise in the world's finest, most sought-after wines from great and historic vintages, plus real finds from small producers; wines which embody classic regional styles, plus unique cuvées crafted from rare, indigenous grape varieties that you will not find on the high street.

Our wines are intelligently and skilfully sourced by our experts from field trips and wine fairs. All our wines are made by skilled winemakers, who know that great wines are made in the vineyard, not the cellar, and who really care about the contents of the bottle and making their terroirs shine through.

We provide customers with all information, tasting notes and reviews to make an informed buying choice. We do not list the same wine in subsequent vintages unless it is of equal (or superior) quality to the current vintage.

Here are a few of our fine (wine) personalities... 


Giles Cadman


Giles Cadman - Founder & Chairman

Giles has a huge passion for fine wines and food pairing.

Giles' aim is to enable customers to share his love for wine, by providing high quality wines at reasonable prices. He is especially proud of Cadman's single bottle ordering policy, believing that this gives access and freedom of choice to many fine wines. Gile's favourite wine moment was being awarded the vendangeur d'honneur at Mouton Rothschild for the millennium harvest. Giles is Chairman of the Cadman Capital Group, which also owns Golden West Wines based out of San Francisco.
