And yet with all their knowledge, you'll find no snobbery - just raw infectious passion to help you choose the best wine for an occasion to suit your palate, and all in a very friendly and fun environment.



Not just wine!

And their enthusiasm doesn't stop with wine - they are equally passionate about their range of beers and spirits - a wide range of Gins in store, including Camden's Half Hitch, Misty Isle from Skye and Citadelle from France.




It all started for Duncan after a college visit to Bordeaux in 1989, where he discovered his incredible passion for wine and after learning his trade at Oddbins and working the French vineyards, Duncan and Megan finally opened their shop in Adam & Eve Street, Market Harborough in December 2001.

It was just the beginning and now 21 years later, Duncan Murray Wines is highly respected as one of the most formidable independent wine merchants in the country.

It has been nationally recognised in recent years for:

  • winning the Portuguese Wine Awards 'Independent Wine Merchant 2010
  • winning IWSC 2012 'Independent Retailer of The Year
  • achieving top 50 UK's Best Independent Drinks Merchants 2017

So what makes Duncan Murray Wines different?

Well for a start, you won't find any product in the shop that hasn't been thoroughly inspected, tasted and approved, resulting in a staggering 97% being rejected!



The wines, beers and spirits selected are special and many unlikely to be found in other retail shops.

The services provided are exceptional - informative and directly aimed to help you enjoy wine at its best, whatever the occasion.

The Wunderbar - Duncan's Wine Bar:

The infamous 'Wunderbar' first popped up for business within the shop in August 2017 and has proved to be a staggering success ever since, currently opening bi-weekly on Fridays, from 4pm to 8pm.


So when open, you can 'pop in' for a drink and enjoy lovingly chosen wines and beer in a quite unique setting. There will even be nibbles to enjoy too!

Free Wine Tasting - Saturdays 12pm - 3pm (ish):

For fun and free informal tastings, you are invited to come along to the regular tastings and try the bi-weekly selection of wines or beers with a guide to each one and an opportunity (without obligation) to purchase. No need to book - just show up!
