History & People

Quantock Abbey Wine Cellars was formed in 1995 by Christopher Staniland and Andrew Mangles, both Independent Merchants working in the West Country

The move to Mill Farm, Weston Bampfylde in 2006 and the creation of a number of business units from the old farm barns allowed the business to grow alongside some thriving local businesses, a farm shop, beauty parlour and various others.

Andrew has been in the wine trade since 1982 and holds a Diploma in Wine.  After a number of years both in the London Trade and on his own in the West Country, he decided to create Quantock Abbey Wine Cellars to offer a carefully curated range of wines to local businesses (pubs/ restaurants and shops) in Somerset, Devon and Dorset as well as private local customers.  This has grown to encompass Wiltshire and West Hampshire as well as a UK wide service through the website.

Chris followed a similar path in the wine trade in London, and he merged his business with Andrew in 1995 to create Quantock Abbey Wines.
