FAQs

Propeller is a unique distribution service for boutique producers seeking direct access to UK independent retailers and regional wholesalers.

Propeller was formed by Wild Ferment (a specialist consultancy practice founded by UK wine trade stalwart, Jamie Wynne-Griffths) and EWGA Ltd, a dynamic national wholesaler that’s been servicing UK retailers and wholesalers since 1972.

We provide ‘distribution as a service’ and set up producer’s wines for long term success in the UK market, without the cost base or competing agency priorities of a ‘normal importer’. Producers only pay a fixed monthly fee to support our sales team meaning that they retain control of the product lifecycle and can set optimal pricing for their wines.

Simply fill in our contact form and we will be straight back in touch.

Contact Form

Simply contact us and request our pricelist.

If you’re already an EWGA Ltd customer then you can simply add the wines on this list to your regular order, otherwise you’ll need to open a Trade Account in the normal way by submitting an application form.
