Portal Dingwall & Norris
Over a long history of importing wines and spirits, Portal, Dingwall, and Norris have built up decades of experience, contending with two world wars and the great depression along the way. They started in 1830 as wine and spirit merchants, concentrated solely on rum for a while as part of United Rum Merchants, got folded into not one, not two but three large alliances one after the other before being reclaimed as a wine business. They have now gone full circle and, once again, have a full range of wine and spirits. They love finding amazing independent producers and promoting new and exciting items to their customers. All new products are tasted before they come in to ensure continued quality for all their clients. They hold tastings in their shop and co-host events with bars and restaurants they supply, they also hold tastings with groups like the University of the 3rd Age, membership clubs and do private events on request.
