About Us

Cadman Fine Wines is a UK independent fine wine merchant

We specialise in the world's finest, most sought-after wines from great and historic vintages, world-leading brands, plus real finds from small producers; wines which embody classic regional styles and 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 founded Cadman Fine Wines in 2004, borne out of a passion for fine wines and food pairing.

Giles' aim is to enable customers to share his love for wine. He is especially proud of Cadman's single bottle ordering policy, believing that this gives access and freedom of choice to many fine wines. Giles' favourite wine moment was being awarded the vendangeur d'honneur at Mouton Rothschild for the millennium harvest. Giles is also Chairman of the Cadman Capital Group.

David King

David's career began in 1989, working a broad range of roles for a number of high-profile fine wine companies. Enjoying fine wine and good food with friends has become something of a passion. David strongly believes in high customer service, and enjoys talking about wine with his customers. Year-on-year experience of tasting wines from the best Chateaux and Domaines in France is the bedrock of David's experience.
