We import wines from a handful of winemakers eschewing the use of chemical pesticides and fertilisers in their vineyards in favour of letting the land and the grape speak (sing even). In the winery, fermentation is the result of wild, indigenous yeasts and heavy-handed techniques are not used at any stage of the wine-making.
Many people call this ‘non-interventionist’ winemaking; this is inaccurate. Sensitive human intervention is needed throughout from the pruning and flowering of the vine to the bottling of the wine. It is the decision of these winemakers to intervene with respect to the vine, soil and juice that sets them apart. You will not be tasting an industrial product but a direct expression of grape, place and personality.
From our warehouse in a railway arch in Bermondsey, London we sell these wines to shops and restaurants throughout the UK. At one end of the arch is 40 Maltby Street, our bar, where you can buy wine to drink by the glass, bottle or to take home. Delivery in Central London and beyond can be arranged.
