About us

Old Chapel Cellars is an independent wine merchant based in Truro, Cornwall that is listed in the top 50 indies in UK.

Our roots lie in the former Laymont & Shaw, who were widely regarded as the UK’s premier importer of fine Spanish wines. We aim to deal directly with wineries wherever possible and import wines from all over the world – not just Spain. 

We have a very relaxed and friendly shop based in Truro, Cornwall. We hold regular tastings and also an online store. Alongside retail we also service corporate clients and have some excellent on-trade accounts nationwide, including Michelin star restaurants.

Old Chapel Cellars are proud members and the only member in Cornwall of Vindependents. 

Vindependents is an agency business owned by and run for the leading Independent wine merchants in the United Kingdom. We have an exclusive range of wines selected by independents for independents. We maintain agency relationships directly with estates on a UK exclusive basis only.
