Who we are and what we believe

David Gleave MW founded Liberty Wines Ireland in 2002 with just one salesperson and some top wine producers.

His aim was simple and hasn't changed to this day: "I started this business determined to work with exceptional producers, whatever their size or location, with the belief that with hard work and by being stubbornly quality focused we would deliver the finest wines to our customers".

With the help of Ben Reynolds, Joe Coyle, Joanne Hayes, Gerry Gunnigan and Marcus Gates, alongside a portfolio of over 240 of the most exciting producers in the wine world, Liberty Wines continues to offer exceptional value and quality at every level, specialising in sales to the on-trade and independent off-trade.
