About Us


First of all, why VINVM? VINVM takes inspiration from the Latin alphabet which did not contain the letter U (or J & W) and therefore words later written with U were initially written with V. The word vinum means: "a solution of a medicinal substance in wine" - which we really quite liked.

At VINVM, we have a love and passion for wine that we would like to share with you. We have hand selected a range of wines that we believe offer variety, quality and great value for money, all in one place. This is based on personally tasting the wine and knowledgable recommendations. If there is a wine that you like, let us know. If we don't already stock it, we can look to source, try and then list the wine for us all to enjoy.

We want to focus on making sure that whilst we are offering a great selection, you as the customer are receiving these wines in a timely and efficient manner. We strive to keep vintages and availability up to date to ensure that any chosen wine is available and with you as soon as possible.

We like to learn from you and your experience, so if you have any feedback (positive or negative) or questions please do let us know via our Contact Us page. As part of this, we also work with Trustpilot to provide an unbiased opinion on how we are doing. All our reviews are 100% genuine as opposed to some of our competitors.

From time to time we like to share new and exciting wines that we try, if you wish to sign up to our newsletter (we promise to keep these quality rather than quantity based) please do subscribe here.

The Website

With some members of the team having a keen interest in IT and the others frequent wine buyers, we knew that the most important thing for VINVM was to make sure that the online shop was simple, easy to navigate and quick.

We therefore began by designing and setting up VINVM for use on mobile devices and tablets first. We did this in a way that we knew when navigating on a traditional desktop, things would be simple too. This ensures that you can quickly find the wines you love, easily add these to your basket and quickly move through the payment steps. We have a partnership with Stripe, a modern and very secure payment gateway, and accept all of the traditional payment methods as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

The People

VINVM has been co-founded by a group of friends eager to improve the current offering available in the online market. Having shopped about ourselves, it quickly became apparent that in order to get quality wines, other areas seriously lacked. We therefore hope that we can provide a more enjoyable and reliable service, be it for one bottle for an  evening or for 100 bottles for a wedding.
