About Us

Kevin Thomas

My passion for wine has grown over the years.  For the last 5 years I have been attending wine tastings with Lancashire Wine School and this was where I met the previous owner of Silver Fox Wines. I have completed many tastings including blind wine tastings.  Working with Silver Fox Wines has increased my wine knowledge and a short time ago I completed my Level 1 wine exam. My previous career was spent with BT, some 41 years, and it was time to hang up my working tools and  think of an engaging alternative.  My wife Lesley also recently retired and is working alongside me with Silver Fox Wines.Kevin photo for web 3

Silver Fox Wines Ltd offers great wines to people all over the UK.  Our wines are from classic and boutique wineries, we carry a wide selection to suit all tastes.  We also offer educational opportunities through guided wine tastings.  Why not try one?  They are fun and informative and at the same time are a great way to get family and friends together for a casual wine focused event in your own home, or community hall, for example.  We are also very happy to support local organisations or charities who wish to run larger styled wine tasting events as fundraisers.

We look forward to working with you in the future.  If you have any questions or requests – please don’t hesitate to ask.

Silver Fox Wines has moved its centre of operations from Thornton Cleveleys, to the Cottam area of Preston. We are now also registered as a limited company.
We offer hand crafted wines that are not available to the mass markets through supermarkets. Sourcing our wines directly from the importers we are assured of the quality of all the wines, and not having the overheads of a 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.

Rowland Hayward (Founder and Consultant)

My love for wine has stretched over many decades and is something I have a passion for. After moving to Blackpool from Windsor I was involved in the hospitality industry owning 2 hotels and a restaurant for over ten years. After retiring in 2009 I entered the wine industry working for an international wine company giving customers the opportunity to taste wine before purchasing.

Having attended several wine courses to learn more about the intricacies of wine I set up Silver Fox Wines in July 2013 selling hand crafted wines from boutique wineries worldwide at sensible prices.

I have been dedicated to helping people in the North West learn more about wine, and have given them the opportunity to try quality wines in the comfort of their own home or workplace in a fun way before they make a decision which to purchase.
Over the last four and a half years I have met many hundreds of people and helped them understand a little more about what to look for when buying wine and how to get more enjoyment from it when they open the bottle. Now taking a back seat and acting as a consultant I can spend more time with my family whilst I help the company grow in the capable hands of Kevin and Lesley.
