The Story of Sorrells Custom Wine Cellars

Sorrells Custom Wine Cellars has been trading for over half a century as makers of wine racks and wine storage facilities.

It all started in 1947 when two friends, working out of their lock-up in Putney south London were offered a lorry-load of ‘liberated’ wine from France, stored in dilapidated wine crates. The bottles urgently required a safe haven and the men quickly made their first primitive wine racks.

The friends sold their business in the mid sixties to a wine distributor and the company enjoyed steady growth under the new owners who perfected the quality of the racks and established it as a Limited company in 2001. Two years later, Tim Lewis, a wine lover and entrepreneur bought the business and set up his own manufacturing facility in Essex.

Tim slowly expanded the company’s operations from a two unit agricultural site to a 17,500sq.m warehouse and factory. In 2012 he merged Sorrells and the Traditional Wine Rack Company with Carlo Garn, a Danish firm of respected furniture designer-makers, to form the STC Wine Rack Group.
