Silver Fox Wines is based in Thornton Cleveleys, between Blackpool and Fleetwood.
We offer hand crafted wines that are not available to the mass markets through supermarkets. Not having retail premises allows us to give greater value for money..
A major part of our business is helping people understand more about the wine they are drinking.
We do this at wine tastings that can be held in your own home or suitable venue anywhere in Lancashire.
We charge per person but at a much lower rate than most other companies.
We pride ourselves in the friendly approach we have to our customers and the prompt delivery service provided.
Whilst living in Windsor in Berkshire many years ago I was introduced to wine through the first wine bar to open in that area. They imported wines from France direct from the vineyards. This was prior to the introduction of the mass produced wines that the big supermarkets started to import.
On moving to Lancashire in 1995 I became involved in the hospitality industry with two of my own hotels and a restaurant where I learnt to communicate with people in an easy and friendly manner. My love of good wine continued and four times a year a wine company would visit me personally with a selection of wines to taste before I placed an order.
I started to work for this same wine company in 2009 when I retired from the restaurant. I visited people in their homes and allowed them to taste wines, as I had done, prior to ordering those they enjoyed most. This allowed me to still indulge in drinking good quality wine whilst helping other people understand more about their favourite tipple.
I attended several wine courses to learn more about the intricacies of wine and decided to set up Silver Fox Wines in July 2013 selling hand crafted wines from boutique wineries worldwide.
I am dedicated to helping people in the North West learn more about wine, and give them the opportunity to try sensibly priced, quality wines in the comfort of their own home or workplace in a fun way before they make a decision to purchase.

Catherine Ingram joined Silver Fox Wines in 2015 and is proving to be a great asset with her friendly outgoing approach to the wine tastings.
My love of wine had a rocky start – bottles of Concorde before a night out! Thankfully, moving to Australia for a few years set me straight.
A wine course opened my eyes and taste buds to the delights of wine whether drunk on its own or with food. We ate morsels of digestive biscuit, chocolate and berries and then tasted a cabernet sauvignon with the very same flavours. This blew my mind and ignited my love of wine!
My day job is a marketing manager but wine is my passion. I love discovering new wines that are not always ‘half price’ and available everywhere. Silver Fox Wines allows me to share my enjoyment with others, discover new wines and learn along the way.

She is interested in understanding more about the wine business in general and selling a most desired product in a social, friendly atmosphere either from home or at events. Helen is available for Wine tasting events in South Cumbria and the Lakes.
