Welcome to the website of Hic!
We are an independent wine retailer that endeavours to promote interesting, well-made wines from some of the world’s finest artisan wineries. Built up through relationships that span many vintages, our portfolio of wines combine history, tradition and legendary winemaking of superstar status, alongside innovative and dynamic, new-wave wine producers who are championing indigenous grape varieties and more modern styles of wine production.
We are proud to promote some of the most eye-catching wines and prestigious winemaking names from the most desirable wineries in the business. Many of these producers are family-owned, with great personalities and who are passionate about producing authentic, individual and unique wines from the land that they own. The passion for the wine which they produce, the way in which they farm the land, value the environment, their vinification practices, sustainability and respect for traditions all weigh heavily in our selection criteria and we are proud to support them through our website and retail store.
Our independence and expertise, garnered from over 20 years in the wine trade, ensures that we are able to offer you the very best collection of well-priced, handpicked wines, alongside a bespoke personal service and the very highest customer service possible.
Whilst our focus is directed toward our online wine shop and internet mail order service, we also inhabit a 'real' retail shop which is located in the picturesque village of Ledston, on the outskirts of Leeds in West Yorkshire. If you wish to make a pilgrimage to our humble abode you will find a very concise and focussed range of quality wines, champagne, spirits and malt whiskies for sale by the bottle. This is a carefully selected range of quality wines that you perhaps would not encounter on the shelves of your regular high street store.
Although 'boutique' in many senses of the word, our little oasis of a shop also provides a handy staging post for those customers who wish to access some truly fine wines at great prices by utilising email (or our website), to order and then collect in store at a more convenient time.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope you enjoy the website!
