A Warm Hello

Hello, my name is Alan Trease, Managing Director of Weavers. As the 4th generation of the family to be entrusted with the running of our independent wine merchant, I was delighted when my children Philip and Mary decided to join me and keep the business going well into the 5th generation and with the arrival of my three grandchildren perhaps the 6th. When I started with my father back in the early 60s there were many wine merchants like us in the city centre, plus the local breweries. How times have changed. Philip and Mary share my ideals which are to stay small and remain focus on what we do and do it well. Please read on and find out about the history of our business.

Established 1844

Weavers is one of Nottingham’s oldest independent businesses. Established in 1844 by Edward Cossal Weaver, Weavers started life as a Public House. In 1897, George Trease bought the business from Mr Weaver who emigrated to South Africa. Under the watchful eye of Bill Trease, George’s grandson, the business continued to trade as a Public House together with a small wholesale wine and spirits business. In 1959, the Public House was sold and the company became wine merchants in the property remaining at 1 Castle Gate. Alan became the 4th generation of the family to join the business, and with his father, grew the wholesale business.

Weavers, 2010 and Beyond

Today, brother and sister Philip and Mary Trease, the 5th generation of the family, are involved in the business. Weavers is a thriving company supplying wines and spirits to private, corporate and trade customers throughout the Midlands and the UK.
