New wines from the 2017 European Winery of the Year

We are very pleased to add to our range three new wines from Weingut Pfaffl in Austria. As you may know, we already stock the Zeisen Gruner Veltliner, Vom Haus Zweigelt and the superb Wein 2 Zweigelt / Pinot Noir.

Well the winery is going from strength to strength, winning multiple awards and seeing some rave reviews of their wines, so we thought we should take a closer look. We were not disappointed!

At the SITT tasting in February of this year 3 wines stood out, all from this brilliant Austrian producer and they are now in stock.

We have added the sumptuous Sandstein Zweigelt red, which is smooth, rich and velvety, with mouthwatering fruit,

The range is further expanded by the addition of two frizzante wines, a rose and Gruner Veltliner based white. Both are full of elegant fruit, balanced acidity and fine bubbles, a real treat for the summer. 

Lockdown deliveries.

In this time of lockdown, it's handy to know which companies are still doing deliveries. Well, Kelly  at is voluntarily compiling a list of companies in Greater Manchester that are still delivering food and drink. You can find the list  at

Barons are on the list and still delivering locally.

Hope it helps.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update 24th March.

As an online retailer we are of the understanding that we can continue to trade.  However,   deliveries will only be made where we can leave in a safe place and it is your responsibility  to care for the goods once delivered.   We will contact you to let you know what time we will be dropping off and also once we have dropped off. There will be no personal contact.

We hope this will be helpful for those of you, like us who like a nice little tipple to brighten our days. To further brighten your day, we are also expecting a delivery of some new wines today and these will be available on the web site as soon as they arrive.

Undurraga T.H. range expanded.

We are pleased to announce that Barons have been able to secure a limited supply of seven of these fabulous,  limited release wines.

The result of an innovative project focusing on the unique topography of Chile. T.H stands for Terroir Hunter and brings together a range of wines from across Chile developed to emphasize the diversity of climate and ‘terroir’. 5,000 kilometres long with a dramatic landscape that stretches from sea level to mountain ranges as high as 6,000 metres, the potential to produce wine beyond the traditional Central Valley is enormous and T.H is at the forefront of this quest to explore new winemaking regions. Moving far away from the trend towards standardized ‘big taste’ ‘over-ripe’ wines, T.H wines are made with minimum intervention and a conscious respect for the environment, in limited volumes. They truly represent Chilean diversity and regional differences favouring freshness, character and purity. The breathtaking quality of the wines is matched by the many accolades they receive. For the Syrah Leyda; Gold at the IWC 2015 and Gold Medal and International Trophy Winner at the IWC 2015. 

Remember, these are limited release, so wont be around for long!

Fabulous new wines added.

A selection of new wines have been added to our store. We have a new vegan red from Portugal - Ribafreixo Barrancoa red  and some very limited release wines from the Undurraga T.H range. These wines are strictly limited, some to less than 500 cases world wide. Try them now, before it's too late.
