The Wine Buff Overview
The Wine Buff® is Ireland’s largest independent franchised wine retailer and 100% Irish owned and managed. The company opened its doors to the public in December 2000, when it commenced trading from its first outlet in Limerick, Ireland. The franchising company began in 2002 and since its conception, the company has grown to 8 successful franchised wine shops across Ireland, plus two concession shop locations and a shop in St Emilon, France.

An Independent Approach

Paddy O'Flynn, one of the three principals behind The Wine Buff, has been resident in St. Emilion, Bordeaux, since 1998. A former manager of 'La Tour des Vins', one of the premier wine-shops in St. Emilion, he is perfectly located to find extraordinary wines at ordinary prices. Rene Baylet, Paddy's father-in-law, is a former recipient of the prestigious award, best wine-producer in France regarding quality and price. Rene's son, and Paddy's brother-in-law, Richard, is the proprietor of four mobile wine-bottling plants, keeping him in daily contact with the lesser known, smaller producers who manage to produce some of France's top wines.

With their active co-operation, and the help of his many contacts, Paddy finds the best quality wines within the different price ranges in the wine growing regions of Europe, guaranteeing the consumer real value for money. The result of having Paddy O'Flynn in place allows our customers to choose from a very individual selection of wines, all exclusive to The Wine Buff.
