Nicolas is a French wine retailer, which also has stores in other countries.

Nicolas is a French wine specialist established in Paris in 1822 and operating in London since 1989. The first Nicolas stores were opened in Paris in 1822, and the chain has since grown to include over 400 branches throughout France, with a number of branches in the UK, Belgium, Germany and Poland. In 1988, Nicolas was bought by Groupe Castel.[1]

Nicolas has 530 stores in total, located in major town and cities throughout France and abroad, notably Great Britain: there are 44 branches in London alone. Nicolas stocks more than 1,200 wines, champagnes and other alcoholic beverages.
