It's three years since John Armit Wines was rebranded

to reflect

its growth from one of the wine trade's original one-man bands to a diverse, contemporary

merchant selling to independent specialists, hotels and restaurants and private clients. Based in a former Notting Hill film studio,

Armit's list features first growth Bordeaux

and exclusive agencies for prestige Italan wines such as Sassicaia

and Tenuta dell'Ornellaia.
