The very best French wines are made by individual producers crafting wines in small quantities. Few of these are available in Great Britain. We will bring some of these wines to you.
Who are we?

Our aim is to share with you the artisan wines we have discovered during our travels in France. For 18 years I worked for France’s largest exporter of wine, establishing it in the UK. I spent a lot of time in France, getting to know the different regions.
Small producers work the land themselves and know if a particular parcel of vines is exceptional. They can choose to pick at the time they think is best and make the wine exactly as they want. Most of the wines available on this site are made in very limited quantities – 2 to 3,000 bottles . Many of them are fermented or matured in oak barrels. All are nurtured by winemakers who grow their own grapes and are passionate about making great wine. The result can be seen in your glass.
