Press Mentions

There's no trumping Roberson Wine when it comes to the USA. Peter Richards MW, 2018 Decanter Retailer Awards

Whenever I need to find a bottle which represents California at its most exciting and at a fantastic price point I immediately think of Roberson Wine! California is going through a new era of winemaking and you guys are right at the forefront, championing this awesome new wave. Thank you for being the ultimate California cheerleaders! Amelia Singer, Wine Educator, Consultant & TV Presenter

Roberson’s move from physical shop to online retailer has been seamless. Their elegant website is a joy to use on any device, with algorithms supporting customised recommendations, powerful search/filtering options and effortless functionality. Decanter Retailer Awards, September 2016

What they’ve done takes guts,’ said one judge of our winners, who have demonstrated a clear commitment to sourcing wines that represent the ‘New California’, bringing in newer, less expensive wines, also from further afield, to bolster their offering of celebrated names. Decanter Retailer Awards, September 2015

Scooping numerous awards for its West Coast wines, including the 2014 Decanter World Wine Awards accolade for Americas Specialist, Roberson Wine is a merchant that champions California like no other. It proudly and actively disregards old-fashioned, big, alcoholic, point-scoring Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays, favouring modesty and elegance instead. Although Roberson sells directly to customers, it also supplies restaurants with its range of cutting-edge wines, helping to spread the message about what Californian wines can offer today, throughout the UK. Roberson’s latest initiative, to supply wines on tap to UK restaurants, perfectly illustrates why it is in the vanguard of Californian wine here. Jane Parkinson, Decanter, September 2015

Roberson got the nod for its exciting and brave efforts this year to source, promote and champion the new wave of North American producers. Decanter World Wine Awards, 2014

The best wine merchant in London Adam Lechmere, Rot., March 2014

Roberson is one of London's most dynamic wine merchants. It is not that old but it has fingers in a much wider range of pies than most: education ... fine wines, including some relatively ancient vintages; direct imports such as our very popular Mas Coutelou wine of the week; and now, natural wines. Jancis Robinson MW, 15th June 2012

In May I went to my first evening wine tasting at Roberson, the fine wine store at the far end of Kensington High Street and I was extremely impressed. You may remember that Julia Harding and Richard Hemming have already reported on some fine events held there and I can now quite understand their enthusiasm. Jancis Robinson MW, on jancisrobinson.com, 2009

Fine and rare wines, sold by the bottle. All of France is excellent; so is Italy and port. Oz Clarke, Oz Clarke's 250 Best Wines, 2009

I have attended and written up Roberson's tastings for a couple of years now. For the record, these are just a bunch of young guys who organize great tastings and they run one of the best wine outlets in London. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com, July 2008

Roberson is the new breed of fine wine merchant where sleek is part of the style. Wine & Spirit, June 2008
