Products

logo Since 1979 we have specialised in the supply of wines purchased direct from growers and estates as well as the more traditional method of purchasing through negociants. Growers have been visited around the world directly at the vineyards to assess the quality of wines and to check methods of vinification. Our regular contacts and long term relationships with the wine makers helps to ensure high quality and thus avoiding badly made and dishonest wines. We should be pleased to help our clients with their plans to visit any of our suppliers. I feel that our list represents not only genuine value for money but also provides a selection of new, interesting, and unusual wines.

Over the years we have placed much emphasis on the selection of top quality country and house wines; and so with many good wine makers around the world combined with modern vinification techniques, it never ceases to amaze us how many anonymous, acidic and overpriced poor quality wines are still passed off as House wines. Caveat Emptor - BUYERS BEWARE!!!

'It is of far more importance to select your wine merchant than to select your wine, for a merchant with a reputation to lose will never give you bad advice'
