Our Next Tasting is Tonight:
Wayward Imports from the Loire
Friday 2nd August
One last shout for this evening’s tasting at the shop! A strictly Loire Valley affair...

Hot on the heels of our tasting with Raphaël & Émélie Beysang last week, we hope you can join us at the shop as we officially launch the wine from the two growers we are now working with in the Loire. We’ll have selections from Noëlla Morantin and Mikaël Bouges available for you to taste as you find out more about this part of France and the people who make these wonderful wines. Stick around for a few glasses with us afterwards, or take a bottle home too.

Noëlla and Mikaël are both working around the Faverolles-sur-Cher commune in Touraine, but their wines differ in style thanks to the varied soils that their vines are planted over; a result of the changing course of the river Cher over the centuries. We'll be pouring a selection of their unique expressions of Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Côt (Malbec) for you to taste for yourselves.

We are now working directly with five French growers in total, and their wine is available in the UK exclusively via our recently established import arm. The wine can be purchased in-store and via our website, and over the coming weeks and months we will be distributing the wine to various bars, restaurants and shops around the country. Get in touch if you work in wine and would like to arrange a tasting or take a look at our wholesale list. We're very proud to be representing these growers and we very much hope you can join us as we pour their wine in Leeds for the very first time!
