Founded by former teacher Rachel Gilbert and her father Graham during the pandemic, Pacific Wines has been selling wines from California and Oregon online for nine months. A new store in Islington slated to open at the end of August marks a new stage of the company's growth. 

The store will offer a range of wines from Oregon and California, with Napa and Sonoma well represented, including Napa Cellars and DeLoach Vineyards, as well as some lesser-known wineries such as Keep Wines and Field Recordings. Customers will have a chance to explore a comprehensive selection of over 150 wines available to purchase. In addition, Pacific Wines also has a space which can hold up to 30 people for wine events or tasting sessions.

Rachel Gilbert comments, “This is a very exciting time for us! We are the first UK retailer to focus exclusively on North American wines and I’m very excited to share my passion for wines from the area with others. Lockdown gave us the opportunity to set up Pacific Wines online and start to develop our range of wines, and living locally, I had my heart set on opening a store in Islington.”
