Announcing our partnership with Corney & Barrow

As we prepare for the 2022 Season, we are delighted to announce our partnership with wine merchants, Corney & Barrow. Working in close consultation with Feasts, Corney & Barrow have cultivated the carefully curated wine list featuring in the Boundary Room Restaurant this year and we look forward to sharing some of the stories behind the wines and their makers.

“We are delighted to have entered into a new partnership with Corney & Barrow, one of the oldest independent wine merchants in the UK, who care as much about producing a fine wine selection for you to enjoy as we do about our opera productions. Every aspect of an evening at Garsington is important to us and we are pleased to be partnering with a company which shares our values.”

Nicola Creed, Executive Director of Garsington Opera


Corney & Barrow Cote du RhoneSince 1780, Corney & Barrow’s mission has been simple. To offer the best wines in the world, exclusively wherever possible, direct to the end consumer. 

The wine merchant remains resolutely independent to this day, having grown both nationally and internationally, into every sector of the market, with sales offices in London, Edinburgh, North Yorkshire, Hong Kong, Singapore and more recently Shanghai. Its young and dynamic team are lucky enough to represent some of the greatest producers in the world, a large number exclusive, including Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé, Domaine Bonneau du Martray, Champagne Salon, Domaine Leflaive, Clos de Tart, Domaine Jacques Prieur, Giacomo Conterno, Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux and many more. Corney & Barrow is also proud to offer its Own Label range, the very best in class, handpicked and blended by them, at every day, affordable prices and are pleased to have included some of these on the Garsington 2022 wine list.

The relationship that Corney & Barrow has with its customers is individual, personal and built to last – in fact not dissimilar to its relationship with suppliers and its own team and looks forward to bringing these attributes to their partnership with Garsington. The company is extremely active in the En Primeur market and operates a highly successful broking division, matching buyer’s and seller’s requirements around the world. Corney & Barrow is honoured to hold two Royal Warrants as suppliers to HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Prince of Wales.

“We are incredibly proud to have partnered with Garsington and we are very excited to launch the new wine list for the 2022 Season. Garsington has earned a reputation for offering one of the best selection of wines of any opera house in the country. It therefore seems very fitting to introduce some more of the great names in the world of wine onto the new list such as Brice de La Morandière from Domaines Leflaive, The Moueix family from Pomerol, Peter Sisseck from Dominio de Pingus and a host of exclusive producers across all price points. Every wine has been chosen for a specific reason and in turn offers its own story.”

James Franklin, Head of Merchant Sales at Corney & Barrow
