Latest customer review:
"Nadia was an absolute dream to work with as our wedding supplier! Her knowledge is next level - she sent me a sample box of wines for our wedding based simply on vague flavors I described - and it was perfect! I'd highly recommend Pembroke to anyone looking for a wine supplier for their big day. They even did an emergency delivery during the event to top up our reserves."
