Edward Sheldon is an old established Independent Wine Merchants and have been trading in the historic market town of Shipston-on-Stour since 1842. Richard Badger, who started the business, became a vintner after first selling medicated wine at his pharmacy and in the late 1850's he passed the reins to his nephew, Edward Sheldon. During the latter part of the 19th century the business flourished, supplying wines throughout the United Kingdom and to many parts of the Empire. Vintage port, Madeira and sherry were shipped for Warwickshire's affluent country houses, officer's messes here and abroad, and universities. Edward Sheldon still occupy the original extensive cellars (12,000 square feet) and offices and are now open for official tours. Be part of this rare opportunity to share in the colourful history as well as being able to view a 19th century working wine cellar.
