Many sell wine, few source as we do.

Our speciality is wines with a difference and our quest started in 1975 in Burgundy,
with a wonderful discovery – the “Clos de Lupé”, the only vineyard within the town of
Nuits-St.-Georges yet denied that noble name for being on the wrong side of the road.
Thus, a delightful elegant wine, at a humble price.


Our quest is never ending for, every year, new winemakers emerge fresh from learning the latest technologies and keen to put them into practice in the family vineyards. But, and this is the critical point, such application is built upon their family’s intimate knowledge of their vines and their terroir. A few to illustrate:

Jean-Michel Vache who, nature permitting, produces both red and white Vacqueyras from Grenache with Noble Rot. The red, amazingly rich, fruity and spicy; the white, often just one barrel for the year, fresh, clean and luscious.

Pascal Lucin who produces around 4,000 bottles of Clos Louie each year from vines planted in the family vineyard in Castillon back in the 1850s. The clos was untouched by the phylloxera, has been bio-dynamic since 2001 and the grapes are still trodden by foot.

Louis Bovard, of Cully in Switzerland, who grafted Sauvignon Blanc onto old Chasselas root stock to produce one of the “World’s Top 10 most interesting wines” – voted by the Jury Découverte in 2005

Robert and Brett deLeuze, of ZD Vineyards in Napa, who created “Abacus”, their Cabernet Sauvignon on the “solera” system. Elegant old wine refreshed yearly with the intensity of new young fruit.
