About us

Our wine story started while chatting around the kitchen table. Fast forward 20 years, and you can still find us sharing our love of wine.

Grifalco Vini Basilicata

We personally source, select, import and distribute our wines

We personally source, select, import (excluding New World Wine) and distribute the wines you can find on our website and have done so since starting out 20 years ago. We believe in clean, unadulterated, honest wine making and we support small/medium independent producers and restaurateurs who have the same beliefs.

Within our small team we strive to keep up with the ever-growing wine scene, attending WSET courses and with trips to wine fairs abroad and in the UK. We also regularly visit our producers in their vineyards to cultivate good relationships and closer ties.

White Fox Wines initially started out as a trade business, so these days although you can buy our wines online, you’ll also find them in various restaurants, wine bars and wine shops around the UK. If you’re interested in becoming a trade customer, do get in touch.

Since 2000

All those years ago, around the kitchen table, we decided to take the chance we had for a change of direction in our lives and followed the wine. It was a simple idea that has gradually become the resilient family business of today.

White Fox Wines (the trading name of Bianca Trading Wine Ltd) emerged over summer 2019, the natural result of having moved to new premises in 2018. We love how the new name closely links to the old: White is the translation of Bianca, and the Fox,  Lis in Polish, is found in the family’s surname Lisowski.

We feel the new name reflects our belief in the value of the past and of a family unit, while looking to the future.

Why shop with us?

20 years of experience

As long standing suppliers to the hospitality industry, we have a very good understanding for selecting the best wines for your purpose. We can suggest and find the perfect wine for everyday drinking, for an event, or for a wine list.

Unique wines

All wines on our list are tried and tasted by us. If you see them on the website or in the shop, it’s because we love them! They represent very good quality, value for money and come from independent producers who care for their work and their environment.

We deliver

We deliver throughout the UK using our trusted couriers. If you’re local to Chester, or a little further away, you’ll most likely get your wine delivered personally and without delay by either Fran or Juliusz in our own van.

The team

 Small is beautiful!  Our business began as a one-man show, Bianca joined in soon after, and over the years, with both the family and the business growing, jobs and responsibilities have been progressively shared. At heart we are a family business, even though along the way, some good people have been part of our team in various ways. White Fox Wines is the result of an improved synergy and the coming together of two generations, the old and the new.

Juliusz, as founder and managing director still looks after our trade customers, generating sales and contacts with the producers and logistics. Bianca looks after the accounts, the retail side of the business, the website and everything else in between! Both Juliusz and Bianca regularly taste and select the wines as a team, along with their friend Nick Telfer who has been a colleague for many years.

Francesco is responsible for the deliveries and the warehouse, has a keen eye for social media and since gaining his level 2 WSET, is also a very good palate. Leonardo has recently returned from Uni just in time to help with his IT and Web skills, while Sofia is the drive behind the making of this website, with her marketing experience, her knowledge, and charms.
