About us

VIDA UK is the third branch on the fast-growing VIDA family tree, following on teams in Sofia & Vienna.  Named after the Baba Vida medieval fortress in Northern Bulgaria, VIDA seeks to champion Central and Eastern European wines & spirits in an authentic and innovative light. Thanks to a local network from the West Danube to the Black Sea, as well as via our very own 6 hectare estate, we aim to encourage the rediscovery of the Forgotten Old World, from established icons to rising stars.

 

VIDA carries a vast assortment of pantry foods, drinks, wine, spirits and accessories from 15 countries, resulting in a portfolio of over 1500 diverse styles and price points for the ultimate shopping experience. We showcase 30 producers new-to-the-UK and 200 exclusive products including much-loved classics as well as the quirky for the adventurous.

 

Customer-experience lying at the heart of what we do, we took great care in choosing quality-conscious suppliers.  Moreover, as a team we are all passionate about sustainability, wellness, the environmental & social impact of our sector, and the innovation this generates. Values we hope reflect in our selection.

We hope our customers will enjoy the same level of excitement as we do on this road to discovery, through fair-prices, good pours and learning!
