Delibo

Delibo was founded in 2005 with the aim of finding producers that make wine with the full knowledge of and commitment to their environment. We continue to seek these out and learn from our travels and experience. Whilst we have wines that can be considered mainstream, we also find wines and producers that are 'off the beaten track' to some degree. We deal in the main with the independent retail and wholesale sector and endeavour to be flexible to meet the aims of our customers. 

We bond at LCB Olympus in Barking form where collections can be made if appropriate.
