The origins of Mr Wheeler date right back to Victorian times, when George Wheeler, the great-great-grandfather of our current Chairman Johnny Wheeler, first joined the wine industry – and the family business, supplying fine wine to a discerning clientele, began.
Early success led to expansion into larger premises on Colchester’s bustling High Street, which was to be occupied by the business – and for some time the Wheeler family – for more than a century, as the company went from strength to strength. In 1937, the purchase of a further building, in Culver Street, would allow further growth to meet the increasing demand for quality wine, with the new premises incorporating stabling for the firm’s dray horses, a bottling cellar, and storage for customers.
