Our Story

Simon Yorke has been in the wine trade for over 32 years.   Simon’s ability to match wines to the specific needs of customers and their budgets has become his trademark.  He has travelled many of the wine growing regions across the world sourcing wine for his customers. As director of an independent importer of wines from family owned vineyards,  he has sold his unique and interesting choice of wines to the likes of Gordon Ramsay, The Fat Duck, The Dorchester and Harvey Nichols. Simon set up his own business as a specialist importer of Spanish wines exclusive to himself, supplying most of London’s famous Spanish restaurants and chefs with top class wines and Cavas.

In 2016 Simon bought WINEWORLD Honiton, in 2018 he opened another shop WINEWORLD Ilminster and the CHEAP STREET WINE CLUB was officially launched in 2020, an online delivery service enabling Simon to bring his considerable expertise and love of all things wine to the South West and beyond.
