Our story begins in 1870 when Francis Edwin Davy opened the Rising Sun just off Strand. Known as a “wine house”, it opened at a time when the area around Strand and Charing Cross was changing fast with pubs and theatres – and our wine house – springing up to cater for customers arriving via the new railway station.
The Rising Sun thrived so more establishments soon followed.
The wine merchants’ side of the business grew quickly too, with sales particularly strong to upmarket, West End hotels. A new headquarters and warehouse was established in Barking, East London, to cater for the demand.
In 1902, F.E. Davy introduced our first own-label wines. 150 years later, they remain the cornerstone of our range, much-loved by our customers and representing our view on how the best wines of each region should taste.
