Association of Small Direct Wine Merchants (ASDW)
The Association of Small Direct Wine-Merchants (ASDW) was formed, as you might guess by the name, by a group of British independent small wine merchants selling niche ranges of wines to the general public online.
Membership of ASDW is open to Personal Licence Holders who are proprietors of small wine merchant businesses selling direct via mail order and the internet. We do not have a paid for secretariat and every one is expected to devote time and effort to the group for significant out of pocket expenses only.
Together we are stronger; sell more wine; and have more fun.
Promote the interests and advantages of independents to government, the trade and consumers
Organise consumer wine festivals with charities around the country.
We promote ASDW to national wine writers and bloggers
Offer mutual support, expertise, guidance and advice
Provide an effective forum for sharing best practice
Seek cheaper procurement of goods and services via economies of scale and collaboration
