About our wines
Fine Wines is a family-run company which specialises in (and in the majority
of cases is the sole U.K importer of) wines from some of the best small growers
in southern and central France. Our wines have received a great many enthusiastic
reviews from many esteemed wine writers, including Jancis Robinson MW, Tom Cannavan,
Tim Atkin MW, Neal Martin of eRobertParker.com and Jamie Goode at the WineAnorak,
not to mention being shortlisted for the Specialist Wine Merchant Of The
Year category of the Decanter World Wine Awards.
New wines are added to our list on a regular basis, so why not join our
mailing list, to receive occasional updates (we send out around 8 email newsletters
And don't forget the Leon Stolarski
Blog, for news, reviews, tasting notes, musings and the odd rant about
numerous wine-related (and also a few non-wine-related) issues. You can also
find us on
where Leon posts regular updates about new wines and blog entries.
Whilst not the cheapest wines on our list (prices
range from £13 to £35) Terre Inconnue
is undoubtedly one of the finest growers in the whole of Languedoc. With
tiny yields, biodynamic viticulture and minimal use of SO2, these wines are
rich, complex and quite unlike any wines you may have tasted. And in order
to encourage you to give them a try, we have put together a 6-bottle
sampler with a saving of 10% on the individual bottle prices.
From the same "stable", we have 2 new growers; Domaine
Adèléandre fashions a brilliant Grenache to rival the
finest Chateauneuf and undoubtedly the best Cinsault we have ever tasted,
shows exactly what Merlot can do when it is able to ripen properly(!) At prices between £17.95 and £22.99,
these wines offer a brilliant quality-price ratio. And then we have a delicous
red and white pair from Domaine
- both of which punch well above their weight
at just £11.50.
And just in for September, we have the latest
red and white releases from the fabulous Domaine
Saint Sylvestre - top wines from one of the Languedoc's rising
stars at £18.50 per bottle. There's also a 6-bottle
sampler, which includes 3 different vintages of both
red and white at just £99.90 (a saving of 10%).
