Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Viña Errazuriz in 1870 in the Valle de Aconcagua, 100km north of Santiago.

Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant, Eduardo Chadwick, who is the sixth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Eduardo has overseen the modernisation of the winemaking technology at this historic estate while maintaining a distinct identity for its wines.
Errazuriz’s philosophy is best expressed by Don Maximiano who said, “From the best land, the best wine.” With a reputation for innovation, quality and sound environmental principles, Viña Errazuriz is dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality. With a strong belief in the concept of ‘terroir’, they strive to produce the finest wines by controlling every stage of the process, from grape growing, to winemaking with the most natural techniques with an emphasis on delicate handling of the wines, to produce wines with elegance and complexity.

Partridges was opened on 25th May 1972 by Sir Richard Shepherd in the fashionable area of Sloane Street near the Kings Road and quickly gained a reputation for selling the best quality foods from British producers and importing food and wines from all over the world. The slogan was, and still is, ‘good things for the larder’.
Today, Partridges is still very much a family business with Richard’s brother, John Shepherd, now the Managing Director. In fact, it is one of the few remaining family-run food shops in central London and still cherishes its original idea of providing the very finest quality foods whilst also having diversified into other areas.
Now located on the Duke of York Square on the Kings Road, the Partridges store features a café, a Saturday food market, a huge range of American groceries, and a growing export business for its own label products.
Partridges was awarded its Royal Warrant in 1994 by Appointment to HM The Queen.
Today, firms that hold the Royal Warrant include grocers like Partridges, wine merchants, chemists, plumbers, mole catchers and dressmakers as well as many global firms. The distinguishing feature, no matter the size of the company, is to provide the highest standards of service.
