The McAlindon family's passion and enthusiasm for wine has been the driving force for the development of the company into a leading independent retail and wholesale wine merchant and wine producer. From bottling Guinness and wine in the 50’s the emphasis moved to importing quality wine from independent and family owned wine producers from around the world. Today this ethos continues and their large range includes Hunters, Luigi Bosca, Paitin, Pommier, Vega Sicilia& Vogüé.

In 2003 the McAindon's purchased a vineyard in Priorat, Spain where they produce the rich, full bodied 'Creu Celta'. The symbol for Creu Celta (meaning 'Celtic Cross' in Catalan)is inspired by the exceptional 15th Century High Cross found on Devenish Island in County Fermanagh.

The trade side of the company 'McAlindon Wines' supplies many of the leading restaurants in Belfast and throughout Northern Ireland.

In the shop you can purchase wine by the bottle, the case or large quantities for events. Gift vouchers and tasting tickets are available.
