WinesOnline launched in November 2014 offering exceptional wines and champagnes at the best possible price to the general public for the first time. What better place to make a splash in the national wine glass than Hull.
“In 1279 Hull was granted the right to hold a market and a fair. (A fair was like a market but was held only once a year and lasted for several days). People would come from all over Northeast England to buy and sell at one.
In 1293 the King acquired Hull. It was renamed Kingston (kings town) on Hull. The king wanted a port in Northeast England through which he could supply his army when fighting the Scots. The king set about enlarging Hull. He gave Hull the right to hold 2 weekly markets and an annual fair lasting for 30 days. The king also established a mint in Hull about 1300. The same year he built an exchange where merchants could buy and sell goods.
The main export from Medieval Hull was wool. Much of it was exported to towns in what are now Holland and Belgium, where it was woven and dyed. Some salt was also exported as well as grain and hides. But most importantly (to us)The chief import into Hull was wine(the drink of the upper classes).”
The dream for WinesOnline is to return this trade to Hull.
