About Us

Hello! Welcome to Alteus Wines. We are a husband and wife team who have a passion for all things wine. We are both Wine Spirit Education Trust (WSET) qualified and after many years in the business world, we decided to follow our passion and opened our shop in Crowborough, East Sussex.

Being an independent wine merchant means we have complete control over what we stock and search for exceptional quality at good value. We have wines from small producers to some of the more recognised brands, but typically you won’t find many of our wines on a supermarket shelf!

We really care about supporting local business and so stock a range of Sussex beer (including Harvey’s of Lewes), ciders and gins which showcase some of the fantastic produce that is right on our doorstep.

We offer a local delivery service (free for purchases over £100) and this is all handled by employees of Alteus Wines. It’s really important to us to provide our customers with a high quality and personal experience. This extends to the Tasting Events that we run in the shop. We combine our wine knowledge with creating a fun, relaxed environment to come and try and new wines and make new friends!

We have been fortunate to travel to quite a few wine regions around the globe. We sometimes even combine it with some cycling! Our favourite trips including cycling through the vineyards of Burgundy and Alsace. They are just beautiful places to explore. Another firm favourite is South Africa, where there are some fabulous wines being produced.

Exploring where the wines are produced gives us great insight to the different styles and variety of wines that are available. We believe we have brought this knowledge and experience together to offer over 350 great quality, good value wines to suit all budgets and tastes.
