We are delighted to announce that we are now an official 'award-winning' independent, family-owned business located in Jersey in the Channel Islands that has been trading for over 119 years. We have 3 shops based in Beaumont, St. Helier and Gorey as well as a full e-commerce website offering free island-wide delivery. We pride ourselves on our extensive range of over 1800 wines (plus a further 400 trade only wines) from all over the world, our wide range of spirits, liqueurs, beers, lagers, ciders, waters and soft drinks as well as connoisseur foods, gifts, wine accessories etc. and our ability to offer our customers personal, friendly advice combined with excellent customer service. In 2016 we won Regional Merchant of the Year for the South and South East of England and we were also shortlisted to win the National Small Independent Merchant Award at the International Wine Challenge Awards. In 2017 we retained the title of Regional Wine Merchant for South and South East of England and in 2018 we were shortlisted once again for the national award and retained the regional award. We have just also been shortlisted for the 2018 Decanter Retailer Awards, Regional Wine Shop of the Year.
Neil Pinel, Managing Director said, “We are absolutely thrilled to have retained such a prestigious award that covers such a large area. Dunell’s has been through many changes over the last 20 years. Adapting and evolving in an ever-changing market place we have expanded from what was a cash and carry styled merchant to a leading wine and spirit specialist with three temperature controlled outlets around the island as well as a temperature controlled warehouse and storage facility. Complementing this we have developed our online presence having launched our eCommerce site in 2008, one of the first businesses in Jersey to do so. One of the aims over the years has been to develop a strong and dynamic team in order to provide the very best customer experience and I am very proud that this has been achieved. A lot of love and hard work went into winning the regional award and to have also been shortlisted as one of the top three Small Independent Merchants in the UK and C.I. in 2016 and 2018 is a credit to everyone’s dedication and passion.”
Dunell’s has gained a lot of ground in recent years by expanding and evolving to become Jersey’s leading wine and spirit specialist. Indeed, in January 2011 Dunell's began a huge transformation of its Beaumont shop, completely changing the layout and feel of the shop. After much research and observation, we felt the shopping experience could be further improved and the pictures above and below are the results. The response continues to be be extremely positive and we are delighted with the changes.
March 2011 heralded the arrival of our new tasting machines from By The Glass UK that allow customers to try wines before they buy. They really are the icing on the cake and the comments we continue to receive have been incredible. Please do visit the shop to see them in action and to sample some great wines!
Our 'Wine Walls'
You will now find over 1800 wines displayed on our main wine walls. Over 450 of these wines are available to purchase immediately by the case from our shop case storage area and best selling aisle.
We can also arrange to deliver to you, from our warehouse stock (we have two large temperature controlled warehouses totalling approximately 8500sq ft), any cases that you request if they are not immediately available from our shop location.
September 2011 - Dunell's 'La Cave' opens in St. Helier!
In addition to our main store in Beaumont, we have an shop in town!
On Tuesday 27th September 2011 and for the first time in our history, we officially opened a shop in town. Located at 37 Hill Street, St Helier (opposite Snow Hill bus stop), our town shop offers almost 800 different wines from around the world and 200 different spirits from our main portfolio. We also have a large selection of glassware and accessories. It's a perfect one-stop gift emporium! We have also installed another state-of-the-art 16 bottle wine tasting machine (in addition to our machine in Beaumont) to allow customers to try before they buy.
The aim of the new shop is to bring a fantastic selection of wines and spirits from our main portfolio into the centre of town, together with our traditional, independent family values of quality service.
We continue to receive very positive comments and have already hosted many private and corporate wine tastings (we can take bookings for up to 30 people) which is obviously be one of the main attractions of a town location. Please do feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about any future events you may wish to arrange with us.
5th December 2015 - Dunell's opens a new shop in Gorey
In addition to our Beaumont and town shops, we are delighted to announce that our new shop in Gorey opened in December 2015! We opened the doors on Saturday 5th December and had the most incredible day. We were non-stop with customers right from the start and it was so lovely to see so many. Thank you for your support and kind words. We've worked extremely hard to create this new shop and to hear such lovely comments has been fantastic. There is an unrivalled selection of 600 different wines from our portfolio of over 1500, craft beers, ciders, spirits and liqueurs as well as a beautiful range of decanters, glassware and gift hampers. We also have a fridge full of chilled Champagnes and wines for your convenience as well as one of our tasting machines where you can try 16 different wines before you buy.
In January 2018 we started a huge programme of renovation at our Beaumont shop. This is due for completion in September 2018 and will see two brand new tasting rooms, new kitchen facilities and retail space opened. We are very excited about these developments and represents significant investment for the future of the business.
Did you know that next year, Dunell’s will have been established for 120 years and at our current site at Beaumont for 50 years? Therefore, as part of our huge refurbishment programme currently taking place at our main shop, we thought it would be a good time to refresh our logo. Our current logo has been in place now for 18/19 years so we are delighted to show you what our new logo will be going forwards. It will take some time to transition fully but you'll be seeing more and more of this new logo over the next few months!
